Just heard the mastered MP3's of this new release on Bananamania from Berlin. Trust me, you need to keep a look out for this one...
A1. Boogity Boogity Boogity
B2. Shroom Heaven
LOS MASSIERAS do not exist in your time
or universe! LOS MASSIERAS are a reality
only in your 70s boogie state of mind!
This re-edit project formed by two well
known Berliner DJs aims to bring a fresh
approach to the art of bastardization.
Boogity Boogity Boogity is their first EP,
which also launches the new (velvet)
underground label BANANAMANIA. Each
track is quite different, from the floor-
oriented boogie title track, to the mutant
disco of “Bananamania”, to the
psychedelic delirium that is “Shroom
Master,” which has already gained instant
fans such as Lovefingers.

DATE 1 March 2010
So last night I was at the secret underground Grackle studio trying this out. TOTALLY LAME. Don't waste your hard earned money on this "voice box". What ever happened to the good shit Electro Harmonix put out: Small Stone, Big Muff Pi, Electric Mistress, Holy Grail and Q-Tron. Sure these are still being made in a new housing with a number of newer versions, but COME ON. The vocoder needs to be hooked up with the mic via XLR's as well as 1/4" Jack in and outs for the keyboard of your choice. Sounds awful, with virtually no parameters to change the sound. You're stuck with a high pitched tinny sound. You won't be doing a version of Freestyle "Don't Stop the Rock" with this. The other effects also fell way short in what I thought would be achievable. I have to say, if you want (or wanted) one of these, try it out first. Just go buy a used Microkorg for $200. Sorry EH, but this was the worst box I tried in years.
