MENTAL OVERDRIVE REVIEW DJ MAG APRIL 2014

For the second time this year DJ Magazine awards a Mental Overdrive album 9 out of a possible 10 and writes a raving review. This time it’s ‘Everything is connected’ that tickles their fancy (in their April issue), though in a different way than ‘CYCLS’ did back in their January issue.

MENTAL OVERDRIVE CYCLS REVIEW DJ MAG JAN 2014

There have been some great reactions to the new Mental Overdrive album ‘CYCLS’, which was released in late December. DJ Magazine gives it 9 out of a possible 10 and makes it one of the albums of the month in their January issue, Uncut gives it a 7/10 and states that its “space poetry and dubby punktronica make an exotic brew“, while Future Music magazine insists it’s “a forward-thinking and uncompromising album” and gives it a 7/10. The limited CD version of ‘CYCLS’ will soon be available through our webstore.

 



‘CYCLS’ out December 21st

Cycls-frontcover

CYCLS’ is Per Martinsen’s 9th album under his Mental Overdrive moniker (that is if you count in his ‘silent’ album ‘Unplugged’, his live-only album ‘ANTI-LBM’, and ‘The Phuture that never happened’ – the Smalltown Supersound compilation of EP’s initially released through R&S Records – which you should). The tracks on CYCLS were initially made available through his own Bandcamp page as a kind of ‘advent calendar’ for the ‘Mayan end date’ of December 21st 2012; a new track was posted each Monday in the weeks counting down to what some believed was to be the end of the world. Having previously lived through the ‘Year 2k-scare’, ‘The Rapture’, and numerous other ‘end-dates’ launced by small indie purveyors of the truth, Martinsen wanted – through the album title – to suggest that there is no absolute deadline to this existence, no matter how much some people seems to require one, but rather that everything runs in cycles – like good vinyl records.

CYCLS will be released on the one year anniversary of the end of the world – on December 21st 2013, and will be available in all digital stores plus as a limited CD edition directly from our webstore.
