Editorial Reviews

L.A. residents by way of New Mexico, Deepsky's producer-scenesters J. Scott Giaquinta and Jason Blum have fashioned a bubbly techno/trance full-length debut, channeling Nick Warren, Sandra Collins, and other DJs of their dreamy ilk. As already evinced by their late '90s dance-floor hit Stargazer, the Deepsky enjoy a throbbing woofer, punishing the bottom end with abandon to match their fruity melodies. The resulting workouts take a few odd detours (mostly around vocal numbers like "Smile," in which the fusion seems a bit forced), but when it hits its stride, In Silico is delicious. The opener, "View from a Stairway," is an early-morning jet-ski on Lake Tahoe, while the superb, Underworld-like "Ride," already a firm favorite on the international DJ circuit, is a pure, V8-powered daze inducer. A true West Coast techno trance release, In Silico has some great moments that bode well for a more consistent sophomore effort. --Steffan Chirazi

Review

It's about time someone gave BT a serious run for his money. Fellow Los Angeles-based transplants Jason Blum and J. Scott Gianquinta (aka Deepsky) are about to do just that. With In Silico, the group's first full-length effort, the duo (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) put their decade-long tenure in dance-directed production into practice, creating an amalgamation of genres that are determined to set dance floors alight.

The group had some minor success a few years ago when the fledgling MTV dance music show AMP borrowed their early track "Tempest" as the program's theme. And leading progressive and trance DJs including Nick Warren and former collaborator Sandra Collins (they produced the "Red"/"Ode to Our" single with her) have championed the outfit's tunes for years. In Silico maintains those lofty panoramic standards from its opening track, "View From a Stairway," a breezy breaks-inspired jaunt that features Spanish guitar styling from one of Gianquinta's relatives. The duo nudge ever so slightly into gothic electronic rock territory on "Smile," borrowing ex-Republica frontwoman Saffron for vocal duties. Deepsky's pop sensibilities run rampant on the drum & bass inspired "Mansion World." A worldly trance tinge inspires "Cosmic Dancer (2002 remix)," creating hearty dance floor fodder.

While their genre hopping may elicit red flags from purists, Deepsky (like BT) manage to hop along rather well, allowing them a wider range of appeal. It may have taken ten years for this effort to surface, but it's that very variety that will keep Deepsky fresh for years to come.
