Review: Glenn Underground – 70’s Trip (House)

This review covers the house track Glenn Underground – 70’s Trip.

This track was released in 1997 as part of a single.

The track starts off with a vocal sample and a snare roll. After that, the kick and rest of the drum kit comes in. The kick then drops out as the bassline gradually comes in. The kick does rejoin the track. A synth effect is also added.

After a bit, a chime melody comes in. A secondary high hat eventually joins the track. A filtered synth briefly joins the track as well. That voice sample from the beginning then makes a brief return. The chime melody drops out, but a synth string does join the track.

From there, the kick briefly drops out before the chime melody returns. A new wobbling synth joins the track, layering over top of the chime melody. The chime melody grows in complexity as the wobbling synth drops out. That wobbling synth then makes a return as the chime melody drops out. The kick then drops out.

After that, the kick makes a return and the two melodies continue on. The kick ducks out for a brief period every so often. The voice sample makes another return. A filtered synth makes a return as well for a bit. After that, a synth effect makes a return. After the synths drop out, the track fades out.

One thing this track has going for it is that everything does sit nicely together. It also has a good chilled out relaxed sound. The wobbling synth does offer something interesting in this track as well.

In spite of the wobbling synth, there’s not a whole lot that makes this track a particularly memorable one. It is not a bad listen when you happen to be listening to it, but it’s not something I would find myself remembering years later.

Overall, this is an OK track. It has some nice synths and an interesting atmosphere. The wobbling synth is interesting, but there’s not a whole lot else that makes this track particularly memorable. Not bad when you’re listening to it, but I find myself easily heading into other tracks without really looking back.
