Gypsy Mamba – De Feenux (Alpha Pup)


From the first notes of Da Feenux, I know this is an album that will be right up my intergalactic alley. Bright rays of light emit from this as a neon sky hovers over a gorgeous electronic array of rich house beats, subtle trap and minimalist energy. You listen to “Intergalactits” and you feel an instant time-lapse video flash before your eyes. It could be your life, or it could be life altogether. You realize Gypsy Mamba is transcending you into another dimension.



“Herro” is not as subtle and gives more obscene gestures with its basslines, which is the most tantalizing part to this song. As playful as it all is, it disrupts the mood of the opener but bounces back into the unknown on “Deathly Swallow,” filled with deeply rich and inventive electronic explorations.

And then “Btc” comes about with all of its glorious layering amplifying the energy this band is capable of exploiting. But after this apex, Da Feenux moves into an exploratory mood, tweaking around knobs and seeing just how far their sound and creativity will take them.

Don’t expect this album to be a full-on party dancefloor thumber. You may get little teasers, but the album spirals all over never limiting themselves to one particular style.
