Ok let's go to this gem, I remember my danish old friend liked Jean Borelli these old gold days.And yes what an artist, and what a label and what a title boys and girls!
Here we go.
.01. Nazca Spider
Sssssh.Someone is talking here. Nice psychedelic effects are taking place in the very beginning of Nazca Spider.Some percussion are trying to give you a rhythm there.And the kick comes in very gentle and beautiful. Bassline so smooth! 1:45 the journey is about to begin guys. Beware the bassline is so funky! The track keeps evolving and the goa sequencer is making a prologue of what is going to happen.Be patient Here we go 3:55! Psychedelia over the place Let's fly with some trancy pads now. 04:50 yes, keep it minimal and dancable Jean! You know what you're doing. 06:40 let us relax a little bit! And yes again 07:00 let's dance to this Spider guys!
.02. The Source
The source starts with a nice effect and the kick getting in very anxious. Very soon we are in the psychedelic mind of Borelli. Nice kick,hihats and effects making a good atmosphere there. Here it is the goa sequencer trying to explain some notes. We are now at the moment when we are about to travel.Everything is set we are waiting...mmm nice heartbeat drum there and tribal rhythm Jean! We are getting a bit twisted here. This is kinda tribal-psy to my ears. Interesting.
Here is Rooster with a great bassline notes. The kick and percussion rhythm are there again. It is funky. Step forward-Step Backwards. A mystic synth is playin' some nice notes there while a goa sequencer appear for just some time! And here is the Rooster! Great melodic layers are here in front of our eyes Things are getting more twisted while the track keeps going and going.
Let's go to that Funkadelic track.Very nice title Jean! Sure this will be very funky as the bassline, percussion and kick admit it 01:10 yes, you prove it once again This is funky psytrance guys. And here is the bassline at 02:16. A very interesting moment is around at 02:45 where everything disappears except the necessary parts!Yes this is one of my favs.
Again funky psytrance style is going to develop and evolve! Very nice production thanks to my ears. 02:21 something is about to happen I think. Yes it keeps going nice and smooth. Showing us how funky psytrance is all about. Breaks,pads,percussions,basslines,nasty sequencer notes that's all are trying this decent artist is trying to say. Excellent work Jean!
Let's move to Akeru now.A manga hero? We'll see... That have to be a very funky manga hero guys Soon at 1:00 we are enetering funky-psy mind of Jean. Very nice and smooth development of this kind of psytrance. A very memorable moment is at 04:58 where Akeru is trying to explain his story while at the same time the track keeps being mystic. This is also Jean, very nice
.07. The source [Elysium Remix]
And here it is the source, this time in Elysium Remix! Hmmm a very nice oriental atmosphere is taking place in the very beginning in the track. 'I am the source of your salvation'.Keep going Elysium. Yes it is a very good remix. Tribal-psytrance I would say this time. A very interesting moment for me is about at 02:50 where a nice tribal psy atmoshpere is building. Yes goa notes are coming now dudes! Keep it playing there. 'I am the source' again and notes together and tribal feeling. Excellent remix Elysium. 05:30 things are getting very good. Full music and layers playing with your mind. Bassline chaingin' pitch and mysic pads are there to keep you in balance. Sure one of my favs guys
And let's close the review with Highway. Here we go with a mid-tempo psytrance? Yes! Here we go let's dance very smooth and slow to this one. The bassline once again is very selected one. Nice percussions again and effects from one of the masters of funky-psytrance Jean. One of my favs for sure to close such an album!
Favorites? : .01. Nazca Spider, .03. Rooster, .04. Funkadelic, .06. Akeru, .07. The source [Elysium Remix], and .08. Highway.
