Though listening for signs of "intelligent" life could result in brain damage, First Class Ticket to Telos is an irresistible journey through high-intensity bubblegum trance, reminiscent of how Aphex Twin might soundtrack a video game. There are more ideas in the tracks "Fried Funk & Microchips," "Planet Shock Future Rock" and "Panic Button" than many acts have built entire careers on, and Begg never seems to run out of great effects and tight rhythms. Word to Nintendo: sign this guy up!
