This album has been on my mind for a while, so I thought it best to do a review on it. ‘Galaxy’ is the debut album from ‘Joshquery’, an LSDJ chiptune artist hailing all the way from Mexico City. I’ve been following Josh for a while now, ever since I did a compilation review on chipwin and included is stella track, ‘Space Shuttle’. It is also featured on ‘Galaxy’.
Immediately from the start of the track, you can tell Chema is featured on this song; his style is so evident that it couldn’t hit your ears anymore clearer! From listening to the track, it seems that Chema handled the leads and Josh worked on the rhythm, drums and bass. The noodling leads that arpeggios weaving within each other are clear trope off Chema’s style, where as thumping beat, complete with good sounding samples, is Josh’s. That’s actually one of Joshquery’s strengths in his music. He can always find a way to make a good beat, and is something I think he should stick to focusing on.
That said though, there are A LOT good techniques in his music, that he should be proud of. I’m looking forward to the next album, I’m sure it’ll be good!
