On MOVEMENT IN STILL LIFE, producer/programmer/mastermind BT presents the accessible face of electronica. Like DJ Rap or Prodigy, he merges electronics with pop and comes up with an eclectic, radio-friendly album that should do more to advance the genre's cause than ten Warp label compilations.
Amid skittering techno breakbeats, modified house rhythms, semi-ambient sweeps, and canny sampling, BT deploys catchy choruses, rapping, and some rock-flavored arrangements. Soft female vocals float soothingly above the ethereal "Dreaming," and a couple of the cuts here could pass for tech-savvy alt-rock, with guitars and vocals aplenty. Hardcore techno fans may dismiss STILL LIFE for pandering to the masses, but those masses will find BT's album a useful entry into the world of electronic pop.
