We Are Electronix reviewed in Irish Times

Edwin James has been a prolific player on the local electronica scene for quite a few years, yet, as seems to be the case with manyIrish producers, it’s taken until now for his debut album to emerge.What’s clear, however, is just how useful his many compilationappearances and, particularly, live appearances have been in terms ofdeveloping and fine-tuning a particular approach to sound. Be it thepristine electronics that make up the groove on the shimmering NotComing Back or the jumpy bleeps on Pink Is the New Black, James has theconfidence to wait for his own particular sonic map to unfold from thecreases. He also has an eye for the wry electro-indie crossover, asRock Stars shows. Occasionally, James veers too near the Kraftwerkautobahn for his own safety (especially on 303 on 31 and Fifth), but hepossesses enough ideas and notions of his own to prevent that happeningtoo often. www.weareelectronix.com
