Junkie XL epitomizes the concept of the modern electronic musician. He is a one-man juggernaut of expertise: composing, mastering, remixing, DJ-ing and capable of playing nearly every instrument on the planet. His latest artist album "Booming Back At You", on Nettwerk Records, continues his mission to single-handedly explore the uncharted realms of electronic music.WAIT... THERE'S MORE STUFF
The entire album is gritty, electro and hard-driving-- exactly what will be huge in 2008. Even the softer tracks, like "Mad Pursuit," still make you want to get up and go. There is something to like about every song in this album, the attention to detail is extraordinary; after several listens you'll continue to pickup nuances missed previously.
Although there is much experimentation within his music, JXL's nod to past decades can be heard throughout the album. This can best be heard in the first cut "Booming Right at You." JXL combines an upfront electo beat/bass with old school vocal samples and a funky synth lead straight out of the 80s.
"Booming Back At You" is in stores now.
