Review by admireArt
4 stars The iconoclastic architect´s dreams and nightmares.

Taimur Sheikh aka "Tipu Sabzawaar" is one hell of an addition to PA. Inevitably mentioning along the way that he was (or is?) half part of 6LA8 well known by some of this PA´s sub-genre followers.

Well enough introduction! Tipu Sabzawaar´s 2012 "Brink Trip" to describe it in an instant, is bombastic, heartfelt, uncompromising, unpretentious, groundbreaking, completely original, multicultural progressive electronics with firm close encounters with contemporary electronics and stylings (drone, dub, noise, shoegaze, glitch, world, etc, etc.). The project as such is the kind that plays and sounds like the possible realization of a masterpiece alongside a tightly constructed own electronic idiom.

2012 was a very busy year for Taimur Sheikh as his PA and Bandcamp (name your price) discography show up to now. I have listened to some of them, but this one is simply fantastic.

Let me try to explain what makes it tick beyond the mere good and move to "essential", inches away from masterpiece.

As I mentioned the blending of not only electronic styles to the point of becoming something entirely fresh and new, but also the meticulous use of myriads of out-dated or very popular or known "marketed synth sounds" and transfiguring this conscious display of memorabilia into genuinely different and sometimes quiet opposite, from their original roots , sonic environments. And those "new" and different grounds are Tipu Sabzawaar´s keen and extremely polished and more than once genial sense of music composition.

As I mention to my art students, a good drawing goes with everything, the same seems the case for highly inspired melodical lines. The same that you will encounter, in this multi-cultural electronic release, nothing less.

****4.(imaginary) 5, PA stars!
