For those who don't know, Possible Records is the independent
breakbeat/ambient/dub label put together by Scorn's
Mick Harris. This two-disc sampler provides tracks for a number
of acts, including his own projects, Scorn and Quoit.
Also present are Eraldo Bernocchi's Interceptor, Jim
Plotkin's Jupiter Crew, PCM, Ambush and
While most of the album flows slowly with steady programmed
beats and carefully placed electronic bass-lines, there are
moments where inventiveness grabs the listener. Ambush's
brash To Seek and Quoit's Stir both snap
at the listener, while other tracks, like In the Cooler
by PCM, speak in a passive voice.
While this genre may not appeal to all listeners, there are
a few tracks that warrant notice because of their musical
strength. Tracks of note include Scorn's Noticed
and Off, Ambush's Detachment and PCM's
Year Zero. Fans of Scorn will be pleased at
the range of sound from the four tracks available, sonically
ranging from Evanescence to Logghi Barogghi
to even current works.
Sonics Everywhere may not convert any new listeners,
but 2 discs for the price of one, this sampler is a great
addition to those who enjoy the genre. Since many of the tracks
are previously unreleased, this album should find a special
place for people who enjoy this kind of music.
