Caesar Garcia, best knows as PYROTEC in music circles, has released his latest EP on his own Conspiracy Lab Recordings label.
A 6 track four song offering (two of the tracks are instrumental versions) which starts off with the adventurous 'A.I.1' featuring ANODICA lead vocalist Laura Amelia, who perfectly embodies an alien finding itself in a new planet and adapting to the experience. The song is a dark epic journey which nicely settles in to a deep breakbeat groove.
The following song is 'ghost' a playful bounce beat with a vocoded hook by never recorded web troll Black Trump, who according to PYROTEC was so nervous about it, that he showed up drunk to the session and mostly speaking nonsense to the mic; which he (PYROTEC) later sampled in to the songs hook.
The third song in the offering is the aptly named 'what to do?' a drastic creative left turn which places us in a rock arrangement with PYROTEC singing the lead vocals on this epic rock/rap song.
The EP closes with 'coconut island' a downtempo chill groove that is both melodic and introspective. It features Frank Turner sampled on as the lead vocals from his acoustic performance of the Counting Crows' song 'Anna begins'. When asked what the song was about in a recent phone call PYROTEC said: "oh dang girl... you got me there... well... it's about a girl I knew a life time ago, who introduced me to the original counting crows song in a weird prophetic way, I guess the song is about that... about what that song has meant to me for 20 years. I guess the best way to describe it, is as a back cover to a book that began 21 years ago." wow deep!
The next two tracks are instrumental versions of 'A.I.1' and 'what to do?' which round off the EP which PYROTEC produced along with writing and arranging most of it. This is definitely a strong step in the creative path Caesar as his friends call him has made for himself.
