Lifebuilder series

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


The Lifebuilder series consists of three albums released from the Telepathic Data Storage project: HomeGen, JRPG Town, and Maximize. Each release is a six to eight track extended-play of uptempo electronic music. The first two albums were additionally released through the Sud Swap Audio Brewing label; the third has yet to be re-released following the planned deletion of the Telepathic Data Storage discography from their web site and Bandcamp page.

HomeGen is glitchy with elements of future funk. Intro track “Jumpstart” has elements of DnB in addition to a skittering synth lead underneath the percussion, and “急げ” is party-vaporwave akin to no lives matter by chris†††. JRPG Town remixes music from Nintendo GameCube games – most notably The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker1 – in the style of IDM and DnB. For example, “Peaceful Island” uses the fairy theme, and “Together (◕‿◕)” utilizes the Windfall Island theme. Finally, Maximize follows a similar route as HomeGen, but its time split between spacey tracks (e.g. “Cake (v1 – scrapped track)”) and layered-percussion work-outs (e.g. “Identity”). It also remixes several tracks from the HomeGen album, some sharing nigh-identical song titles.
