Ilija Rudman - The Reveal Croatia's Ilija Rudman has been a leading player within the new-school disco-boogie realm for a while now, with a slew of excellent, late '70s-referencing EPs on such repositories of bumping funkiness as Tirk, Solar Disco and his own Red Music. Album opener "Inspectors Drive" is a case in point: A barebones beat, spare bassline, a few synth lines here and there. It's practically a schematic diagram of an early electro track's inner circuitry, but the sounds are so precisely arranged and pristinely recorded that it doesn't really need much in the way of ornamentation.

We kept asking Ilija Rudman to get in the studio and write us a killer LP but being the busy bee that he is it was hard for him to take the time out. We kept asking until he eventually caved in and went underground to record his first LP, 'The Reveal'. Ilija is a devoted and passionate man when it comes to music. One of his prerequisites for recording an LP was that the recordings had to be made with the same techniques and equipment that inspired him to make music in the first place.

For his debut album, Croatian producer Ilija Rudman has decided to further explore his love of early 80s synth disco, vintage electro, Balearica and electro-funk. When he's tried this before, his efforts have been hampered by the digital sheen of noughties nu-disco. Thankfully, The Reveal has no such issues.

Yep the Bearfunk HQ might have had a good idea getting Ilija Rudman into studio recording them a 'killer' LP but althought it is finely done and nice sounding in ways of early 1980's to mid 80's R&B Disco Jazz-funk & Electro-funk productions, what is strongly missing here in compare to such period is vocals, and a tad less rudimentary percussion. For voices there are none (if not a few stupid sample vocal keys played on 'Romance Warrior'). It is an instrumental only release and the rhythmic ingredients are pretty repetitive (even if Linn and Oberheim DMX were used). If the producer would have teamed up with artists and being less solitary confined this could eventually have resulted in a great album but this sound just like another formula release in now nearly tiresome nu-disco 'retro but new again' explorations. Buy any medium produced 1983 US R&B/Jazz-funk/Disco release and you may get better tunes for the fraction of the cost. I'm sorry but I can't call this a production but a fine exercise in solipsist electro-funky reproduction. Come on Bear Funk, give Ilija Rudman something other than himself to produce and you'll get a 'killer' album, because this if a production sounds more like a collection of Wally Pettibone breakbeat snippets done by Simon Harris circa 1986. It's so full of clich├ęs and non innovative that I start to wonder if Ilija Rudman hasn't been a tad over-hyped lately. I understand on the other-hand that Tanmushimushi needs just to sell records of course and I know it's no that easy to stumble upon a great singer adapted to such grooves since nearly everyone in dance music sings like the backing-vocals could be upfront (and so since the end of 90's) as in today so called 'R&B' and if not just do talk-over as if Gainsbour was doing Electroclash in autotune but maybe it's good there isn't even that on this release. Disapointing release, don't believe the hype. The groovy stuff isn't here, Damon G. Riddick does much better and Rudman has done too, before, sorry my Bear.

Here at Bearfunk HQ we firmly believe in perseverance. We keep asking questions until we get the right answer and with 6ft bear by our side the answer is usually yes. We kept asking Ilija Rudman to get in the studio and write us a killer LP but being the busy bee that he is it was hard for him to take the time out. We kept asking until he eventually caved in and went underground to record his first LP, 'The Reveal'.Ilija is a devoted and passionate man when it comes to music. One of his prerequisites for recording an LP was that the recordings had to be made with the same techniques and equipment that inspired him to make music in the first place. So Ilija hooked up with one of his studio mentors and got his dream line-up of synthesizers, Roland Jupiter 4 & 8, Minimoog, Roland SH2, Juno 60 and his dream drum machines Linn and Oberheim DMX. These analogue machines fire up to create a warm and authentic vibe across the whole LP.We are reminded here that machines do have soul if used properly. We start proceedings with the wigged out boogie of 'Inspectors Drive' which might be a little nod in the direction of Wally Badarou's classic 'Chief Inspector'. We then get all Shep Pettibone with 'Victory 2010', 'I Dub You So Much' and 'Gentle Fire'. 'Prisoner Of Passion' has the same special melodic bliss as Maze's classic 'Twilight'. 'Show Me The Magic' and 'More Than A Memory' have all the ingredients of DJ friendly hits. The LP reveals all the influences that Ilija has experienced and it shows the talent that runs inside him as he is able to make such an amazingly retro LP sound like something from the future.We're sure in years to come this LP could become as important as the influences that inspired Mr. Rudman to make it.
