Can Atilla — Omni
(Groove Unlimited GR-103, 2004, CD)

by Roel Steverink, Published 2004-09-01

Omni Cover artHere we have the new album by Can Atilla from Turkey. But before I go on with the music, I have to mention the again amazing cover made by Pablo Magne. Most albums which this great artist has done, just leave you in wonder or make you think when you look at them. Back to the music. For the readers who aren't familiar with his style, it's definitely music for a bigger audience. And I get the strong impression that he was satisfied too soon. For example there are some very beautiful space passages, but they are too short and too few. Too often you get very commercial rhythms with too catchy melodics on top, other times like on "Sputnik 1 (Part 2)," it's more Jarre with different layers on top and although derivative, these are the better tracks. When you look into the bonus tracks in the end you know he stands close to modern dance, cause they're all remixes. No, the result is quite mediocre.
