Such Unimportant Things Like Us/To Make Right What's Left

artist: ICR
title: Such Unimportant Things Like Us / To Make Right What's Left
label: Fokuz
catalogue: FOKUZ2011LPP1/FOKUZ2011LPP2
format: digital
date: 09/2011
country: The Netherlands

Such Unimportant Things Like Us is ICR's most mature (and probably his final) drum and bass work to date, incorporating the very essence of his love of precisious drumworks and sensual musicality. The album is built around one topic that can be easily read out from the titles: it's about love and struggle for acceptance. As with this final chapter he closes his dnb roots, a new stage is already set: To Make Right What's Left is a necessary step forward, focused on 4/4 territory and other mid-tempo genres. The trademark deep and cinematic ICR sound remains the same, but in new forms. The double album is the best way to gain insight ICR's mind and soul thru his forward-thinking music in full spectre.
