"I quite liked creativity and ‘mystery’ on ‘Don’t Turn Your back’ and bit of a reggae on ‘One Love’. You definitely improved with incorporating ‘vocals’, tunes tend to sound more like commercial ‘lounge – soundscapes’. ‘You’re breaking monotonousness and adding an interesting plot to ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ whilst retaining simplicity there. Good use of sax on ‘Heart of Stone.
I enjoyed Balearic atmosphere and keyboard work on ‘1st Hello’ although with unnecessary dull moments in there.
I was looking for element of surprise and ‘Way Station’ stands out with the richness and consistency.
‘Serendip’ is a good tune but it deserves better more dramatic/dynamic graduation towards the end."
Thanks for the feedback Mr G. The album 'Serendip' will be available as a download in due course...
Thelonious Monk says "I say, play your own way. Don’t play what the public wants. You play what you want and let the public pick up on what you’re doing, even if it does take them fifteen, twenty years." -
Ahmad Kadim of Sparks + Glowsticks Blog says ' I’ve heard a lot from people that they immediately fell in love with Thievery Corporation (...) I’ve been hopping around trying to find songs/artists that could reach their ideal mix of grooving tunes, subtle melodies, and mellow basslines. After a surprisingly long search, I listened to these songs by R-MEX on his Soundcloud page, and I got hooked.
Let me just say: people talk a lot about how they like “chill music”, but these tracks are what chill actually sounds like.'
R-MEX says - 'Had been listening to various kinds of music, Frank Zappa, Soft Machine, The Grateful Dead, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Miles Davis, George Duke and lots of Reggae 12 inches. Could hear in imagination a kind of reggae but couldn't find the sound on vinyl so decide to try and make it.
From the outset the idea was to develop a unique voice if that was possible.
If R-MEX sounds like anyone else that is because we all live on the same planet and in this writer's view we are all the same, only different.'
