I’m enormously proud tonight of my old friend and Mary Washington College alumnus, Jason Buckland — a.k.a. Scorpio Static. His new trance/electronica album, “Utopia,” dropped worldwide yesterday and it’s damned good stuff.
“Utopia” reminds me of the progressive and alternative dance music that I danced to as a student in the 1990’s. (Jason was the actually the guy who introduced me to it as a kid — jamming to Erasure and New Order in the dorms of MWC and in the clubs in Washington, D.C. )
“Utopia” is fast paced and trippy, and I enjoy it even more than Scorpio Static’s 2011 album Tranceformation. This time out, my favorite track is probably a toss-up between “Genesis” (Track 3) and “Journey to Heaven” (Track 6). If you’re a writery-type like me, you might find it makes good work music.
You can find “Utopia” right here at Scorpio Static’s Pandora station and also over at ReverbNation. Or, if you want to download it directly, you can find it here at CD Baby Music Store.
Check it out!
