"it began in africa", pourrait-on-dire à l'écoute des premières mesures electrotribales minimalistes de cette production Monkey Tool. Un coup d'essai, pour le label du distributeur underground ToolBox, qui sonne bel et bien comme un coup de maitre. Originaire de St Etienne, 202project signe ici un disque profond, voir abyssal, entre "repetitive beat" à la Vromb ou Plastikman période consumed et expérimentatons post-industrielles qui nous fait dire, encore une fois, qu'il se cache de véritables trésors dans la création électronique francaise actuelle. Pour résumer Urban Shaman, disons qu'il s'agit d'un manifeste électronique plombé tout en restant organique, ou prières ancestrales nous plongent dans une transe hypnotique et répondent aux drones fiévreuses générées par des machines en pleine narcose, pour un long voyage techno-shamanique. A noter, la pochette très réussie de Ronan qui en fait un objet doublement indispensable. Tout simplement du grand art ! (MxR)

202 PROJECT - Urban Shaman LP (TOOLBOX)
The French label Toolbox Records has made a good start with the release of the Forgotten Fish Memory Orchestra lp Our Tin Tribe and this record by the 202 Project. Just like Forgotten Fish Memory Orchestra, 202 Project makes use of ‘world music’ elements. This record opens with samples of shaman singing on top of which an electronic drone is placed. The singing disappears and pops up at times, but the pulsating sound keeps going on the whole time. This way 202 Project creates its own original blend of world music. Urban Shaman consists of eight pieces of this kind of music. On some tracks the electronics are dominant (‘Miss Connexion’) and at others the world music elements (‘Fulani’). The combination of tribal and shaman singing and electronic drones is an original mix, resulting in conjuring music. Toolbox Records has proven with its first two releases to have a nose for special music projects. The label has thus created high expectations for its future releases.
