Invader Of The Grid Review

Really good review of the Invader Of The Grid – Bass Agenda release from Technobass.net.
Great to see people feeling what the Ghost feels, even after all this time.
There is more to come and the film will drive that, just it will be a while!

Still recovering from knee injuries, but getting stronger, just have to be patient.
A bit of restraint now will keep me in good shape long term.

Here’s the text of the review :

August 2014 Record Review | The Ghost That Walks – Invader Of The Grid

“The darkest, rawest, deadliest audio experience of your life?”.

After listening to this epic outing, we must admit words from Andy of Bass Agenda Recordings to introduce the brand new rush of adrenaline from the one and only “The Ghost That Walks”, were chosen on point!

Hailing from UK, the immense but long overlooked artist has been working in the shadows for many years whereas during all this time his unique talent would have deserved to be put under the strobes.

Author of a pretty short but essential discography on underground labels such as Zyntax Motorcity and Satamile USA Records, enigmatic Paul Bishop, in true life, redefines the syncopated genre each time he drops a new E.P..

“Invader Of The Grid” is no different from his previous releases, gathering altogether no less than six uncompromising pieces of raw, merciless, brutal and sonic wonder; TGTW has no rival when it comes to injecting fat, dirty, and dark driving frequencies into a nasty yet authentic post Electro era.

This is music at its most twitch worthy and an unlimited source of inspiration for the new generation of freaks, definitively pushing the style into unknown territories.

Fusing the sound of Detroit (UR, Ultradyne) to Paul’s first synthesizer influences, from John Barry to John Carpenter, the digital packs hits hard from the first notes of “Tazers In The Sun”.

While analog lines crash against your brain, the powerful atmospheres of the opening track meet non-comprising pulsations making his music ballsy, unconstrained, spreading blood and tears through your speakers.

SciFi “The Devil’s Kiss”, my favorite, serves up next an astounding piece of dramatic Electro based upon gloomy synth layers and a feverish dancefloor bassline.

Let’s figure that the doors to your most terrific nightmares have been left opened and you’ll get an idea of how strong this fearing track really is!

Dark “The Fall Of The Tower” sounds like another charmer with its metallic rhythms a la Aphex Twin.

Definitely not for the faint of hearts! Instantly following, “Master Of Destiny” delivers an aggressive sound design enhanced with industrial reminiscences along with well placed claps causing severe mental damage.

The title track “Invader Of The Grid” escapes from the classic Electro constructions to deliver a tense and sharp breakbeat jam reminding one of some of Control Tower, SMB Records or Audio Illusion productions. Ace!

Final cut “Blood & Lace” concludes the E.P. with a serious dose of testosterone, combining audio aesthetics to a merciless sense of the dancefloor!

Unstoppable and subtle at the same time, this evil release is a must have. Another beast from the Ghost and forthcoming success on Bass Agenda Recordings!

Dark Power Plant Back On Line

It feels like I’ve been away for years, like a dream within a dream 5 levels down. Yet it’s only been 2 months, and the power plant is beginning to shake the earth as it rumbles to life.

I really hate taking breaks from writing music, I just don’t know what to do with myself, and nothing can fill the gaping hole that it leaves behind. But I had to take care of something, and now everything is back exactly where it should be.

I walked into the park at the back of The Crypt and it was as if the universe spoke to me.
I looked up at a huge tree and felt it say, “everything is exactly where it should be, we have work for you to do”.

So as the supernatural one does his warm up exercise of laying a few demonic cities to waste in some alternate reality, I’m rolling up my sleeves and preparing to grab the volcanic fuel rods that give me the power of The Ghost.

I’ve revamped the website, it looks probably the best of any versions, and gets it ready for some label action with Last Known Trajectory.
I will keep on looking for more outlets as there are still some great tracks ready, with more to come from the evil one’s production line.

It doesn’t look like he is thinking of retiring anytime soon, so I am screwed.
I’m just the latest vessel in a long line over thousands of years and many worlds.

So you’ll have to pull my keyboard from my cold dead hand, and after that The Ghost will tap some unsuspecting artist on the shoulder one day and offer him a deal…..

The Beast – Let The Right One In

The last few weeks have felt like I need to change everything. To sweep everything aside in a Ghost assisted rage, until the only thing left is me and the dark music.

It’s as if nothing else matters anymore, and despite having a negative job and too many hours of work, the tracks still flow. Despite having a negative place to live, where I can’t rest and they only want me there for the cash, the tracks still flow.

To top it all off to have the girl you are with tell you are not good enough for her, because you’re not rich, you know it’s time to smash the board and start again.

Throughout all of this The Ghost still continues my training, and we still produce some glorious evil electro breaks experiments.

Now we hit tune No 24, The Beast, another dark , foreboding workout with the Ghost giving it his Underworld seal of approval. Perhaps because he thinks it will get into peoples minds and activate their inner Ghost too.

Everyone should have one, maybe you all do…you just have been living in denial….for the whole of your life…..unplug yourself and start doing something, never look back….

The Ghost walks with you ….
