rik maclean's *ping things* CD Reviews

Automatic Fats "Molasses Springs"

Beaty, bass-y, and altogether groovy, "Molasses Springs" by
Automatic Fats is a vibe-laden trip through new environments.
Thick with mid to lo-tempo grooves, the songs on this album
showcase a fluid sense of dynamics with an attention to the
creation of space and atmosphere. Bass-driven melodies and
trippy percussion mingle and fuse with processed samples,
pads, bells and ambience, and in the end it all comes together in a really satisfying synthesis that totally makes me wanna shake my thang. And let me assure you, the thang shaking is infectious. You'll feel it in the slinky shuffle of "Dimitri from Athens" or in the strut of "Jackfish". You'll feel it throughout this disc...

They say that "some fats are good for you" and I would have
to agree that Automatic Fats is VERY good for you...

excerpts from an interview/review by Greg Clow (feedback monitor on CIUT/
"Way down south, you'll find a tiny town called Molasses Springs. Wandering the streets of this little place, visitors hear faint strains of music floating on the moist swamp air. A strange sort of music that the locals refer to as "the electronic blues".
OK, I'm lying. There's not really a town called Molasses Springs. But listening to the album of the same name by Automatic Fats, you may imagine yourself being transported to such a place as the deep, thick and oddly bluesy sounds work their way around and through you.
The debut disc from both artist and label, Molasses Springs is a collection of downtempo electronic groove music based around basslines that are as dark and thick as the title suggests. Automatic Fats is the pseudonym of a Toronto musician who has played bass with assorted bands and has done a fair share of soundtrack work, and both lines of work are quite obvious right from the first listen. [The} deep dub of the second track, "Sargasso", and later tracks like the atmospheric "Dimitri from Athens" offer a view into the soundtrack side of Fats' world. In the end, you'll probably agree with the legend that appears under the clear tray of the disc's package: "some fats are good for you"."
