"Hush Now" is a groovy number with fun percussion and a vocal repeating the title, which somewhat belies its political origins. Considering Thaemlitz's extensive back catalogue, it's curious as to why Skylax decided to choose this one in particular.
There are plenty of tracks that might have served as a better introduction to the producer's myriad interests. Nevertheless, a miss for Thaemlitz is a gem for others, and the track rolls and winds for the duration, ending in field recordings from what sounds like a march on Washington from AIDS activists.
The B, "B2B" is another animal entirely. Springing to life with a dark bassline and a strong beat, continually modulated by a heavy phaser, the track rushes along while new elements are incorporated.
"Brother to brother" repeats and warm pads rise up. As the track breaks for the second time, a funky walking bassline comes into play and piano accompanies. House indeed."
