The Vanishing System

The Fantastical b/w Step Gruv

Altered Vibes

Released: 28th March 2005 | 2 track single
Music from a galaxy far, far away... released on planet earth early 2005 Step aside Andre 3000, watch your back Jack Splash, there's a new hepcat from planet p-funk coming to town. J Todd first got props with Altered Vibes' very own Def Harmonic family, and now, with DJ Epcot Center by his side, drops the second Vanishing System single to be released from their boundary pushing debut long player, 'HeadComputor'. Having twisted melons last year with the drunken jazz-hop anthem, and Peterson fave, 'Krylon Worlds', the cosmic couple return with a future funk masterpiece of epic proportions. J's lyrics are as irreverent and challenging as ever, 'telling the world where to go', over infectious and perfectly fucked up keyboard licks, marching drums and a twisted b-line. Totally ahead of its time, and simply 'Fantastical'. On the flip, 'Step. Gruv.' kicks off with futuristic vibes, the kind Roy Ayers might have played in a '3000 Black' vein, releasing J Todd once again to drop some furious lyrical science as only he can. Another next level Vanishing System joint. The duo continue their deep quest to balance the world on the downbeat. All praises due to the funk!'
"Jason Todd and DJ Epcot Center (stagename of the year?), in with the moonwalking Def Harmonic team, set their weapons to stun and let off a chugging bassline muffle and luridly twiddled, course-plotting keys. With Todd as the star-shaped sunglasses, moonboots and spandex-wearing sunbeam, ?Step-Gruv? steps up the rapped word as another cosmonaut trying to nail hip-hop in space. ***"
Matt Oliver, Update
"The 'Fantastical'is a jump-suit wearing chunk of exhilarating space funk, with delightfully grubby edges and attitude by the bucketload?.these guys have talent 4/5"
Matt Anniss, IDJ
"The Vanishing System appear again with a cosmic soul jam to please many. ?The Fantastical? sees J Todd?s funny vocals inhabit a world where intense synths and rough assed beats run riot. ?Step-Gruv? is a little disappointing by comparison, with its commanding vocals, slow stepping beats and unpredictable musical accompaniment."
