What people have said about The 220 Project

The Waveform transmitter

There’s something about that 303 sound which makes music instantly infectious, is there not? Used correctly, it provides funk by the bucketload, makes slower tracks trippy, and makes faster tracks frenetic and euphoric. Thankfully, The 220 Project know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to the little silver box. 

 

The album as a whole really is quite a beautiful work. Their manipulation of sound via synthesis gives the overall package a cosmic feel, with elements of the tracks being reminiscent of Leftfield in their earlier Leftism guise.   

 

The acid theme that runs throughout the album also gives a nod towards Hardfloor,  in particular acid-trance banger The Reverse Process which the duo have kindly allowed us to premiere for them. You can listen below. Hold onto your socks, though, lest they be blown clean off your feet – this is high energy fayre and make no mistake.

IndieBuddie

Between Two Points of Light’ is nine tracks of galactic futuristic psychedelic vibes. Its calm placid spacey electronics place you in a 
state of daze and gentle dizzy bewilderment. Deep warm basslines add texture and grounding to the hypnotic album while soft rapid beats flash like delicate laser lights giving you a blurry narcotic trip. 

Music Existence

The 220 Project are an electronic duo based in Bristol and Dorset, producing a blend of Bass heavy psychedelic ambient techno dub, using a 
mixture of analogue and digital synths. Using their beloved 303s, MS20 and Bass station, to make a sub bass mix ranging from ambient down tempo to faster acid trance influenced tunes. 

A&R Factory

While the fast-paced acidic trance sound is the leading personality of the album, The 220 Project reveals an opposing stance to their electronic music through a down-tempo comprehensive. There is a transcendent division in ‘Alone (A State of Mind)’ which completely changes the dynamic of the proposed exuberant album. Despite the change in beat, there is a bubbly feel to the atmosphere where a break in the rhythm encompasses a popping range of higher tones over the steady percussion. Following suit, ‘Evolving Would Be Nice’ meets in the middle, where it shares a variety of a fast-faced experimental trance sound, alongside a traditional house beat. The track is an embodiment of multiple drumming and digital melodies weaving through each other which slide in effortlessly into the electronic creation. There is an obligatory evolution of sound, where the pulsating beat is ever so striking through the hallucinogenic ambience

Get Into This

sub-bass plays a big part in their productions, as do the trademark 303 squelches running throughout both of the tracks we have seen the pair 
produce up to now. Evolving Would 
Be Nice reflects the dub ethos perfectly, with thudding kicks providing the foundations for the ever-echoing acid lead and the countless other wonderfully layered textures that run throughout the track. The eastern-sounding vocal snippets add a certain exotic charm.

hypnotic, seductive and somehow futuristic in my opinion. Don’t be impatient, days will fly by and there will be time for us to explore the realms of this electronic music album. Definitely, The 220 Project’s upcoming material is especially recommended due to its originality!
