San Fernando Valley based electronic producer Point 10 began composing music in high school. Point 10's sound and musical techniques have advanced since his early days, but the wondrous heart of youth remains. To construct the innovative sounds for the Sleep Is For Commies EP, Point 10 combined electronic sounds, guitar, bass and drums. This created a hip-hop and electronica fusion. Every song on Sleep Is For Commies has a story, and we may not know their exact details, but we're compelled to listen to them.
Each track on Sleep Is For Commies contains layers of beats. They create various gritty sceneries, but unclear narratives: Point 10 cleverly channels the intoxication of the unknown. Your imagination gets to explore its greatest depths and peaks. The sounds on "Dust On" establish a world fueled by the bells and whistles of street-artist life: a place where artists' collaborate for the love of it, while spectators admire them.
"Margaret Thatcher Is Dead" thrives on the allure of mystery. Its style invokes a meditative and reflexive structure. "Rushing To A Red Light" blends the fast-paced nature of city life sounds with somber, quiet ones. It makes the most creative union of sounds on Sleep Is For Commies. "Birth" takes an atmospheric route with its naturalistic nature. The song captures the feeling of exploring something for the first time; it's the physical or metaphorical birth of something.
Point 10's bio shows that some sounds on this EP developed through experimenting with ways to create them. The tracks might have been more musically interesting if the rawness of this type of sound creation wasn’t overly refined. Despite that minor criticism, the hip-hop and electronic fusion creation on Sleep Is For Commies creates a rare experience. It's an unusual blend of futuristic and funk. Point 10 wakes the mind, calls the body and speaks to the soul with the beats, tones and sounds on the Sleep Is For Commies EP.
