With the world a decade into the 21st century, Detroit born and Chicago bred dj /producer Tim Baker delivers a sonic explosion on his 4th studio album, “Dreams of Fuzzy Animals & Robots”. Blurring the lines between techno, minimal and house music now for nearly 20 years, Baker has created an astral journey through the techno universe exploring every corner of our galaxies’ dance floors. The intro track “Dreams of…” begins your audio voyage hinting at beautiful things to come. The lead into “Belly Dancer”, immediately releases the drama and sets up the tone for the album with a heavy percussive track that works its way into multi-layered, passionate deep space techno. Two more dance floor ready cuts follow suit, unleashing rhythmic and climatic bass and synth stabs with glitchy analog undulating murmurs. An aural outpouring of the soul hypnotizes the mind with the next the song “Moody Track”. The subdued yet sexy chords strike smoothly and unravel the song into a tech house moment of rapture. “My Spirit” continues the more reflective side of techno with dreamy strings and a chunky bass line that bounces within the rhythm of a lost beautiful chant. Baker continues to probe the frontier between minimal techno and tech-house with his track “Wingz of Love”. It starts with a rumbling acid bass line and seduces with a muted hook that slowly opens, climbs and releases the track into an apex of future shock funk. The album closes with “Tuesday”, a enticing descent down Detroit’s revolutionary techno past; bringing elements of house, acid and electro to create a instant masterpiece.
