2econd Class Citizen - The Small Minority

  Aaron Thomason introduces himself as 2econd Class Citizen since 2005 when he jumped into the music business train.The first time ever i heard about him was almost three years ago when my friend Andreikelos told me that "because you are a weirdo psych guy, you have to listen to this dj's project".And he gave me A World Without, Aaron's debut album.It was an apocalypse for me, a great mix a hip hop and psychedelia,well balanced into deep melodies and strong built rthythms.Still spins on my turntable.Now,i am listening to his second full length album,"The Small Minority",again and again.This second step is more difficult but more decisive as well.There is no anxiety at all for a wider audience to be approached(although "Liberated Lady" could be a massive pop hit, many rockers would like to have "Stay With Me" on their repertoire and many neopsych artists would kill for having compoded "Sail Eternal").

 It is actually one step beyond,more mature than his first album,more esoteric and more explosive at the same time.Setting up brilliant soundscapes,this british guy invites us all to dive in his liquid universe where ethereal tunes meet sophisticated drum and bass lines.Fragile,dramatic and so much powerful at the same time,2nd Class Citizen proves that he is here to stay.Well,actually i think that he has not to prove nothing at all as his music will not be suitable for everyone...But i promise you that you will not get bored at all,this album is pure seduction... One of my loved ones here is still "Outside Your Doorway" that was released as a single few weeks ago."Stop To Wonder",as he sings.Listen to one of the best albums of the year already!
