Electric Children is one of those chip musicians who’s been hiding away from my radar for a while. Thankfully I managed to catch their music with the latest release, ‘Reset’.
Electric Children is based in Seattle, Washington and has been creating chipmusic since 2010, holding a big collection of 7 releases. His style mainly comprises with a mixture of EDM, Dance, electro & disco, but also delves into other genres such as, House.
His latest release, Reset dabbles between the genres of Dance, Electro-House & Techno, bringing with it a raw & dirty sound to dance genre. A good testament to Reset’s sound, can be found on the 2nd track, ‘Training Stage’. The song starts off with a fantastic dirty & rhythmic introduction via the wav channel, before diverging in a drop and entering a fantastic hook. Here, we can hear some great usage of it’s leads; chiming through the use of left & right speakers. As well as that, the bass is also brilliant, working behind the scenes and adding an edgy sharpness to the mix. These elements continue to work throughout the track, especially with the bass in wav channel, metamorphosing into rhythmic glitches. ‘Training Stage’, is an amazing track, a song which pounds the sound.
The majority of ‘Reset’s’ track keep the energy of Techno going. The track ‘Max Revive (Feat. Fighter X)’ is another good example, primarily down to it’s catchy leads, which are both melodic and incredibly well designed. This corresponds in both the pulse & wav channels, switching around constantly, whilst upping the level of progression & creativity throughout. The bass should not be forgotten either, especially during the beginning, as it’s one of the vital instruments that kicks off the track.
Electric Children’s Reset is a fine collection of great dancey techno tracks, that can even rival one of the masters of chiptune himself, Trey Frey. Check out the rest of the tracks below.
