  1. Tracklist: 01 - Lotus Sutra feat. Melissa Arcuri - Scandanavian Sunset (98 BPM) 02 - Kataphasis - Chest Pressure (97 BPM) 03 - Ascension - Still Water Bubbles (98 BPM) 04 - Synthetic Sunrise - Psyberian Fields (77 BPM) 05 - Tuval S - I am (80 BPM) 06 - Oxya - Hey Bello (86 BPM) 07 - Twin Shape - 45 (94 BPM) 08 - Said & Mat Harris - Hypnogogia (82 BPM) 09 - Sanathana - Chandama (76 BPM) 10 - 7 Lunas & Nykronds - Annik (100 BPM) "As we drift into the altered states of conciousness of the dream world, our brain wave patterns lengthens and slows down, changing from beta to alpha, and finally theta. During these stages, we can experience what is known as "Hypnogogic" imagery, a series of vivid pictures or surreal imagery that bears little or no relation to waking memories. The imagery doesn't have the narrative quality of most dreams, but consists of a series of shifting and seemingly unconnected pictures that appear as it from nowhere; an animal, a face or a figure, an eye, a swirling rainbow of colours - the variety is infinite. This state, also known as "hypnogogia", occurs in situations where the brain wave pattern slows down such as in daydreams, meditation, and deep concentration. Through training and discipline, some people are able to enter these states at will, and certain plants and herbs have been used to assist the dreamer's entry into a trance-like state. While visions, hallucinations and trance-like states are not the same as a sleep-induced dream, they represent a dream-like experience where the boundaries between normal waking life and another dimension dissolve and merge. In many traditional cultures, the ability to enter a trance conciously and safely is a skill that is cultivated for the good of the wider community. The role of the dreamer is to travel between worlds in search of a vision that can assist himself or advise his ror her people." Wiquid Liquid Records presents a nice variety in the wide spectrum of Downtempo and Chill out music (Ambient, Psydub, Psychill, Downtempo psy, and elements of world) from new and also well known artitst from all over the world.

  2. Artist: Metaphorical Cloud Title: Morphing Label: Flying Woofer Records Date: July, 2011 1 - Imagination Bay (120 BPM) 2 - Cenosis (120 BPM) 3 - Gardens (70 BPM) 4 - Morphing (101 BPM) 5 - Sphere (103 BPM) 6 - Substance (99 BPM) 7 - Quartz (120 BPM) 8 - Psyche (70 BPM) 9 - Backward (68 BPM) 10 - Aerobios (107 BPM) 11 - Thenaria (62 BPM) Flying Woofer Records? Never heard of them, but I might start paying attention now. This is Eduard Sionov from that huge landmass known as Russia with his debut. I don't know what's in the water over there (yes I do, it's Chernobyl goodness...where do you think zombies come from?) but there seem to be a lot of quality artists from that region. Which is great for the listening public. Eduard lavishes us with floating pads and electronic textures as the beat marches slowly on. Hard day at work? Put this on. Kids being a pain in the ass? Stick 'em in front of some Team Umizoomi and put this on. Utterly relaxing stuff that allows you to float amongst the puffy clouds. Sometimes those clouds smile back at you letting the sunshine through, and sometimes it's a bit overcast, so it's a good mix of brooding darkness and light. Recommended. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk

Previews: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfcPSah_Zp8JkVTcKMBkeiDozveVSi-Ps Free Download in MP3 - WAV: http://neurotrance.org/ufo-life-beyond-logic 01 - U.F.O - Dancing in Sahara Desert (100 BPM) 02 - U.F.O - Bubble in Paradise (100 BPM) 03 - U.F.O - Enter the World of Love (140 BPM) 04 - U.F.O - Sky (140 BPM) 05 - U.F.O - Tankashilla (135 BPM) 06 - U.F.O - Delirium Sounds (137 BPM) 07 - U.F.O - Acidancer (138 BPM) 08 - U.F.O - Spiritual Depth (138 BPM) 09 - U.F.O - Entropy (140 BPM) Life Beyond Logic from U.F.O is a polished cohesion of ethnic, symphonic, downtempo, progressive trance, and shimmering ambient textures. An atypical musical experience that will relax and energize, inspire, transcend and will sweep the listener along as each song tells its story.

  4. Artist: Ioon Title: The Ioonfinite Loop Label: Psyderweb Records Date: January, 2013 01 - Totally Let It Go (100 BPM) 02 - Ayamm (Innuendo Number 104) (104 BPM) 03 - Change The Nadi Flow (Guitars by DvZ) (100 BPM) 04 - Aes Drama (95 BPM) 05 - The Ioonfinite Loop (100 BPM) What a crazy name. On my screen it looks like Loon. How do you even pronounce it? Maybe you don't. Maybe it's like Prince and that stupid f*cking symbol. Probably not as flamboyantly gay as that. This is Johnny Gallucio from Italy with a deep trance EP. It's not downtempo or ambient and it isn't progressive, but simply music that does all those things without being put in box. While the title track was Ioonfinitely annoying, I really enjoyed Aes Drama? History here? Rejected demo? Stolen girlfriend? Tricked into going to a timeshare presentation? All we (and by we I mean me) can do is speculate. Nonetheless I liked the track with it's dreamy vibe and unfurling synths. If you told me Aes Dana did it I would easily believe you. He even has the tempo increase later in the track. Change the Nadi Flow is another track that makes you take notice as it unwinds layers of electronica amidst guitar riffs. Peaceful and reflective. For some reason it makes me think of Miami Vice where dramatic music was inserted with slow motion video for the most mundane actions. Definitely worth a listen. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  5. The Neogoa netlabel proudly presents Slow Tachyon, the cerebral debut of SoulQuark (Clément Laporte), a talented newcomer from France. The music of SoulQuark can be described as deep and emotional downtempo with strong influences from IDM and tribal music, all spiced up with enchanting vocals and cinematic atmospheres. Mastering by Clement Bastiat AKA Cubic Spline (Hadra) with artwork design by Richpa at Neogoa Design. 01 - Nitrogen Narcosis (106 BPM) 02 - Soul Bruise (113 BPM) 03 - Tāne Mahuta (130 BPM) 04 - Celestine Language (120 BPM) 05 - Lost In Frozen Dream (?

  8. Artist: Various Title: The Return of Quetzalcoatl Label: Timewave Records Date: November, 2011 1 - ShaMANoiD - Walking In The Desert (100 BPM) 2 - Brujo's Bowl - Organic Structures (80 BPM) 3 - Digital Conception - The Mystical Quest (70 BPM) 4 - Iacchus - Frogspawn (120 BPM) 5 - Spunje - Mystic Forest (120 BPM) 6 - Normala - Dreamwards Again (110 BPM) 7 - Ascetic - Mutant (120 BPM) 8 - Progress - Spring Is Over (120 BPM) 9 - Iacchus - Flex (140 BPM) Quetzalcoatl- A Mesoamerican deity whose name means feathered serpent. Patron saint of knowledge and learning as well as the Aztec priesthood. And the patron saint of me sh*tting my pants if I ever saw it. Don't know about the feathers though. This album says it's the return. I wasn't aware that he went anywhere. And feathered serpent...serpent dictates reptile and when was the last time you saw a reptile with feathers. Other than the bird it just ate. I know there were dinosaurs with feathers, but they evolved. Just sayin' stuff is open to interpretation. If you put something silly on what's supposed to be evil (like a serpent), doesn't that take the fear out of it? Vampire? Scary. Vampire in India? F*cking ridiculous. Walking in the Dessert- Where's the f*cking Bollywood! Funky and groovy? Yessir, it's got the authentic Indian sound with the dubby bass and sitar/tabla combo. Any closer to India and you'd be dodging cow sh*t. I think you're doing it wrong. Organic Structures- Brujo have you ever heard of a short track? I suppose it's gonna be what it's gonna be. He wants you to melt into this one. It's super slow with some wobbly bass and high speed percussion. The skittering effects are pretty cool, but I look up and I'm only halfway through. If I was high this would seem like 2 hours! Not bad, but went on for way too long. The Mystical Quest- Am I at the feet of the Himalayas? Mystical for sure as it slowly carves its way around the mountain. I'm pretty sure I'm still in my chair, but the time was 4:20 the last time I checked. Not kidding. All I can see are expatriated hippies with mismatched clothing and dirty feet. It's almost as long as the previous track, but it's not stuck on the same phrase for 5 minutes. Totally relaxing and mind opening. Bra-vo. Frogspawn- A little cheesy for my liking this ambient has some thunderous drums in its arsenal. But ah...hmmmm. That's about it. Mystic Forest- I like the catchy rhythm and the funk increases when the bass appears. But it doesn't make me think of a mystic forest. It makes me think of of this guy. Ain't nothin' mystical about that guy except how he keeps gettin' tail. Dreamwards Again- Yawn. Mutant- Double Yawn. You should enjoy listening to music right? Spring Is Over- Ok we need a little progress based on the last couple of tracks. Things slow down as this one is a thinkers track. Pensive, with real world instruments. Doesn't last though as it has an intermission where things speed up before it gets back to its laid back ways. Good stuff. Flex- Hey look, it's a balloon animal. This one flexes its psytrance muscles with a healthy breakbeat. Alas, like a roided out meathead above it has a tiny penis. I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth so thanks to all involved and Ekto for making this free. I felt that the Digital Conception and Progress tracks were head and shoulders above the rest. The others...I could take them or leave them. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  9. Artist: Various Title: Space Forming Vol. 2 Label: Gliese581C Date: January, 2011 1 - Disia - ...I Still Don't Know Who I Am (65 BPM) 2 - Den Wave - Earth (111 BPM) 3 - Hello Mellow - A Passage In Time (90 BPM) 4 - Tara Putra - Error In Babylon (74 BPM) 5 - Globular - Squabbling Gods (88 BPM) 6 - Unusual Cosmic Process - Mission X (115 BPM) 7 - Divided Harmonics - Exorcism (Wrong Mantra Remix) (110 BPM) 8 - Wylhelm - Bem Sol (110 BPM) 9 - In Orbit - On A Train To East Malwern (97 BPM) 10 - Hyperwind - OneFreeMan (80 BPM) 11 - Sport & Music - Pazzle (Original Mix) (128 BPM) Discogs tells me that this is from 2010, yet Ekto's release page says it's from 2011. "If you can't decide in one day...you can't decide." Gliese581C is a Russian netlabel that is a mainstay on Ektoplazm, releasing loads of quality music. This is the 2nd part of the Space Forming series with artists that have also put out EP's. Most of them anyway. What you get is floaty ambient and downtempo music in a bunch of styles. From the short glitchy break beat of Disia to the floating sound of Den Wave. And that's just the first two tracks. Dubby beats make you feel at home whether sipping a cool one on the beach or drifting above the Earth. The bass on Squabbling Gods is indeed a window rattler. And the manner in which Mr. Bennett manipulates the vocals in his tracks brings to mind the work of Shpongle. The sample in Mission X is tasty as are the goa elements. The rest of the tracks are pretty good, but nothing to make me stand on the rooftops and demand that you pay attention to this. But you should pay attention to this. Because it only costs your attention. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk

  12. Artist: Atman Construction Title: Elysian Terraform Label: Liquid Seed Recordings Date: December, 2012 01 - Aventurescence (143 BPM) 02 - Parallax View (143 BPM) 03 - Solipsysm (135 BPM) Three things I know: One, the striking artwork is done by Paul Sargent Two, it's mastered by Colin Oood Bennun. And three, I have no idea who is the mind behind this project. So I can only assume it is aliens who are not ready to reveal themselves to us as of yet. And it sounds like what aliens might make. They take everything that they hear and put it into a track. Downtempo with glitchy effects as well as sounds that aren't from this planet. It can be aggressive and relaxing often within the same track. But don't think you're gonna take a nap with this one. It is outstandingly lush with layers of sonic goodness that can be noisy and then float worthy. Recommended. What the hell you got going over there Basilisk? Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  13. We are happy to annouce our collaboration EP with the awesome Globular! Get "Sorbet for the Soul" free from http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/radioactive-sandwich-globular-sorbet-for-the-soul Enjoy! 01 - Globular - Lemon (97 BPM) 02 - Radioactive Sandwich - Lengo (97 BPM) 03 - Radioactive Sandwich - Mango (95 BPM) 04 - Globular - Mamon (91 BPM) Sorbet For The Soul is a collaboration between Globular (U.K.) and Radioactive Sandwich (U.S.A.), two of Omnitropic‘s hottest downtempo and psychedelic dub acts. This project came about from the desire to combine their amazing talents to create a very special conceptual release. Each artist started with the same set of samples and built their tracks around those sounds. Globular cooked up Lemon while Radioactive Sandwich provided the tasty Mango. They then traded tracks and reinterpreted each others original track; Globular created Mamon from Mango and Radioactive Sandwich created Lengo from Lemon. The end result is a four track release that flows and blends seamlessly, every track containing flavors from the others, much like a tasty summer frozen treat. The artwork was provided by the insanely talented Sid Basu. Mastering by Radioactive Sandwich at Slicetwodio. Released by Omnitropic in 2013.
  14. Artist: Integer Title: Ventilation EP Label: Golden Orb Records Date: December, 2012 01 - Ventilation (100 BPM) 02 - Gurgle Dub (140 BPM) 03 - Knife & Spoon Dub (112 BPM) 04 - South & West (0 BPM) 05 - Ventilation (Operon Remix) (85 BPM) You can not be in a hurry listening to this. If you've got things to do, put on something fast paced. This is slow. Verrrrrry slow. Nod your head dubby stuff that I imagine if you were high would seem like 40 minute tracks. Ashley Hanson from Australia puts you under his spell with his 2nd release. Rumbly basses, beach front percussion, and soft synths make this perfect for a relaxing afternoon. The reverb is on high as it echoes far into the distance. And those basses....whew, window rattlers. There was one what the f*ck moment however. Exhibit A: South & West. Experimentally ambient sounds of a truck carrying sheep revving it's engine was wholly unnecessary and that sh*t went on for 9 minutes. But thank you I wondered what a 0 bpm track sounded like. Other than that waste of time, you've got some nice dub. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  15. Artist: Wolfen Technologies Title: Foreign Frequencies EP Label: None Date: January, 2013 1. Ancient Feelings 2. Keep on Flowing 3. Senses Because I'm voluntarily throwing money at Elias Gits, Anoebis, Psyshop, and Avatar I'm taking a look at our good friends over at Ektoplazm. Add to that my wife has discovered that bras from England fit better than from the US, I'm trying to save a few bucks. I decided to check this out because aside from the very interesting cover art this guy (Tom Chant) is from Wales. I spent a year attending the College of Swansea in which studying was not a priority. I mean it was, just not for me. This is a downtempo glitch menagerie that seems to move a lot faster than the bpm's dictate. Soft melodies over cool breakbeats while effects wreck shop as the beat goes on. The bass is deep and makes a chest shudder, but the synths are light and airy. Because the tracks are fairly short it is a nice digestible piece of electronica. Recommended. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  16. Artist: Various Title: Antenna Vol. 1 Label: Stargate Recordings Date: December, 2004 1. Ice Flow VIBRASPHERE 2. Twin Soul KAYA PROJECT 3. Iris Rotation AES DANA 4. Shimmer (piano version) PUFF DRAGON 5. Unhold from a renegade UNEXPLODED 6. Forest Bump DIGITAL MYSTERY TOUR 7. Observer OMNIMOTION 8. DevaBhanda (Tantric Laswell rmx) MAKYO 9. Velvet reptile SOLAR FIELDS Don't let the sh*tty and unimaginative cover fool you. Talk about mailing it in. There are some quality tracks here. Of course a few have been released before. For example Ice Flow by Vibrasphere was released on Selected Downbeats Vol. 1. I can't believe that project is no more. But I suppose they did about all you could do with their music. Iris Rotation by Aes Dana is of course on the Memory Shell album. But I knew I already had those. I wanted to see what the other tracks were like. Seb Taylor's Kaya Project had a female Indian vocal all the way through that annoyed the crap outta me. Puff Dragon is Steve Good also known as Double Dragon who gave us the Continuum album (as well as compiling this one). Shimmer is a slow dreamy crawl with piano because this is the piano version. It hums and oscillates so good luck getting me off this cloud. De-licious! Untold From a Renegade has a lengthy eerie opening before switching to a break beat style. It's smooth with long pads and a dark undercurrent. Nice Forest Bump was a bit of a clanky mess. Observer has a haunting guitar over a mid tempo beat. Just wish there was a little bit more to it. Still not bad. Devabhanda has all the world instruments you would expect with a nice break beat. Soothing for sure. A wonderful exotic combination. Like traveling to the Himalayas without leaving the house. This was a Solar Fields track I had never heard. There's a soft and gentle quality to the Ambient style dub that sounds very organic. Obviously not essential because the well known tracks are elsewhere, but there are plenty of really good ones here to suit your ambient/downtempo needs. Psyshop Beatspace Mdk
  17. Artist: Zymosis Album: Between Two Points Label: Altar Records One day 7:16 Awakening 7:34 Usual Miracle (Micky Noise and Alkan Rmx) 8:07 So Far, So Close 8:22 Path of Nocturnal 7:27 She 7:30 The Unexpected Visitor (Zymosis Rmx) 8:21 I'll Be Waitinf For You 7:51 Quiet Sadness 8:16 Forgotten Days 8:14 With the arrival of their new album Between Two Points, the Ukrainian compositors Zymosis propose a melodic journey through a psychedelic chill universe. Throughout all ten different tracks, the listener is brought to live perpetual luminous texture. Each unique tune presents a common background of emotional sounds and progressive, positive and shining compositions. The album is build like a fairy-tale from intense electronic tones at the beginning to organic and spiritual mood towards the end. One day: With a deep relaxing start, a track which rapidly evolves into intense psychedelics sonorities to later disappear in mellow bird's sounds and emotional piano ending. Awakening: A fast melodic tune which slowly develops 8-bits tones and explodes with frequencies of electric guitar sounds. Usual Miracle (Micky Noise & Alkan Rmx): Beautiful mellow track that has several layers of catchy floating sounds with a slow chill progression. So far so close: A surprising evolution from a deep beginning to a drum and bass and breaks in the middle to propose a relax and intense gathering of influences. Path of nocturnal: The most psybient track. It is a continuous progression that brings the listener in a goa adventure She: A luminous and vibrant track with a wonderful climax at 2:33 and introduced a beautiful emotional female voice. The Unexpected Visitor (Zymosis Rmx): Earthy tune composed with djembe, guitar and flute tones. A nice remix of this psy-dub Shulman's track. I'll Be Waiting For You: Develops a slow bassy rhythm and brings the listener in a deeper mood than with the others tracks. Quiet sadness: This track creates a spiritual travel and lead by healing shamanics lyrics. A wonderful composition who presents a beautiful gathering of instrumental and electronic sonorities Forgotten Days : Proposes a relax and sensual ambiance constructed around mellow piano and guitar melody. So mellow and so intense at the same time, Zymosis offers a bunch of tracks which develop and evolve through catchy melodic shining ambiance. Open your heart, close your eyes, and let yourself live Between Two Points.

  20. Artist: Hinkstep Title: Sunrise From The Treetops Label: Omnitropic Date: October, 2011 1 - Sunrise From The Treetops (126 BPM; 9/4) 2 - Moonwalk On Mushroom Street (80 BPM) 3 - Dreamland Dub (120 BPM; 6/4) 4 - Medusa (67.2 BPM) 5 - Aldrig Mer (130 BPM; 6/4) 6 - So Beautiful So Strange (75 BPM) 7 - Sleep Again (120 BPM) Good God Beyonce is hot. Oh, are we on? I'm always on the hunt for great music and boy did I stumble onto a winner here. Are you bored with 4/4 music? Would you love to hear an artist stretch some boundaries without making the music unlistenable? How about spending an evening alone with Sasha Fierce? Yeah me too. But I can help with two of those. Hinkstep is Jonas Tegenfeldt from Sweden and he fucking knocks it out of the park with his debut. It's brimming with excellent musicianship bringing psychedelia together with spiritual and tribal elements. When was the last time you heard a trombone in psychedelic music that didn't seem out of place? I'll tell you...never. Uncountable gentle melodies take you over the mountaintop in a slow glide, never rushing. Vast as a Montana sky it sometimes reminds me of the path taken by Kitaro on the Silk Road with more ethnic variables. I cannot choose a favorite because they are all awesome tracks. I even liked the cheesy vocal in So Beautiful when he got all auto tuney. This is a stairway to heaven created by the sun's ultimate warmth perfect for relaxing or embarking on a journey of self discovery. And it's free. Spectacularly epic. Ektoplazm Mdk
  21. Artist: Itsu Title: Sublimate Label: Ektoplazm released Date: August, 2012 01 - Monsoon (77.5 BPM) 02 - Drizzle (95 BPM) 03 - Don't Dance To This (130 BPM) 04 - Top Harmonic (90 BPM) "In the beginning there was nothing. No space, no time...just nothing." I love taking a look at music that is unknown to me. Life is like a box of chocolates you know. Well the candy store that is Ektoplazm is open for business. And that business is providing great music for free. Itsu is Ben Jancovich and this EP is a genre buster. There are elements of dubstep, downtempo, drum n bass, glitch and so on packaged in easily digestible chunks to appreciate. From gentle tracks like Monsoon to the more upbeat and aggressive Don't Dance To This. It's nod your head good beat music in an electronic free for all. Ordered chaos if you will. Top Harmonic combines the soft melodies with the hard edge of punchy beats in maximum overdrive. Ektoplazm does such an incredible service to the psychedelic community providing quality music for all palettes. There truly is something for everyone here, exposing the listener to great music like this that cannot be easily classified. This is a good EP full of creativity that has me wondering if I;ll ever buy music again. Nah, of course I will. But this is a great place to explore what music moves you. Highly recommended.

Suitable surrounds and subtle sounds are as equally uplifting by reaching for rhythms that are in tune with the most peaceful elements of the soul. Psy-ambient duo Land Switcher are substantial examples of this finest of artistic abilities by taking listeners/participants on a round tour of the expanses of the cosmos of human experience in their newly released EP, Tribe Scenario. As individuals Freddy Chauvin (Producer, DJ) and Antoine Martineau (Drummer, Percussionist) are proven talented musicians with formative dub roots but in co-joining in 2010 they have taken on new capabilities as the collaborative components of Land Switcher. With joyfully received live show taking them across the continents and an ever-expanding back-catalogue they are now beginning to mine the full potential of their greater whole. Tribe Scenario is four tracks of intelligent blissfulness with raw percussions and far reaching psy-sensibilities engendering the audience with the possibilities of expanded consciousness. Tribal elements pervading but such is their underplayed interweaving the perception of we are one as universal beings, with origins from beyond the horizon, is the only discernible emphasis.

  23. Artist: Aes Dana Title: Pollen Label: Ultimae Date: December, 2012 1. Jetlag Corporation 2. Borderline 3. Conditioned (Album Edit) 4. Tree.Some 5. A carmine day 6. 101 Clouds 7. Riven 8. The meeting point 9. Horizontal Rain 10. Low tide explorations "I am, for the first time...optimistic." Some people just know how to get it right. Consistently. Vincent Villuis is the mind behind this project and he has left a string of superb albums in his wake. Dude's like King Midas. Founding member of Asura, part of H.U.V.A. Network...the guy just pumps out quality. I wonder when he pees in the toilet if you hear the sound of gold ingots sprinkling the bowl. I think he runs his software through a solid gold laptop. I've seen it. His latest effort deals with pollen, a decidedly springtime endeavor, but right now it's freezing outside with snow on the ground. And that works perfectly. He starts with Jetlag Corporation which drops the dub bass as it slogs through quicksand. Perfect for a walk in the snow. Borderline is a cold, dark track with dubby bass and industrial sounds that weeps with regret. The fact that he can maintain that when the kick comes in is remarkable. Conditioned is a thumping progressive house track that is like watching traffic go by in a perpetual drizzle. Gloomy with pulsing electronica the ending pads gleam like foreign ice fields. I told you it was cold. You would think you couldn't be disappointed with a Tree Some, but here we are. It's another moody progressive trance track that felt kind of empty to me. So yes I wasn't thrilled with this Tree Some. But at least I ain't that guy. It's like Shallow Hal but with grandmothers. Where the hell was the wingman on this one? A Carmine Day has frequent knocking percussion and a hard kick and if there was any filler it would be this track. But because the whole is greater than the individual parts it kinda works. He gets back on track with the wide open 101 Clouds. They float slowly by taking their time, forming and reforming countless shapes, speaking just to me. "God what does this mean? So...am I gay now? Or are you telling me to stop playing with myself?" Riven has a bass that reverberates through your chest as the world slowly loses itself. Long pads stretch across an unforgiving sky as I watch the snow continue to fall, wrapped tightly in my heavy jacket. The Meeting Point bubbles and slowly makes it's sad melody known. It's not the deepest track, but it serves as a guide to some Horizontal Rain. And n*gga if you see horizontal rain you're standing in a hurricane. But this doesn't have the force of a hurricane...more of a soft drizzle. It's the type of rain that will force you to look back on a maybe questionable decision. The glitchy melody fits like a glove with the freezing pads. Oh look...it's snowing again. The final track Low Tide Explorations is a long story that moves through ambient textures and dubby breakbeats. Like a lot of fans I was prepared to give this the rubber stamp of approval. I mean, it's Aes Dana. But after several listens I didn't think it was as good as Leylines or Perimeters. So I went for a walk in the snow at dusk. And I began to smile. This is a wonderful album with perpetually overcast skies. There is a foot of snow on the ground with no end in sight. The music is cold and dark with sounds that wouldn't be out of place on a Depeche Mode or NIN album. He traverses boundaries frequently, often within the same track, but never loses his melancholic flow. Glacial pads hover above glitchy electronica as a kick thunders below. So do you have to go out into the elements to enjoy this? Nah, but it certainly helped me. It's a glorious journey of mournful tones that is best appreciated listening all the way through. Congratulations you magnificent bastard, you've done it again. Mood altered. Psyshop Beatspace Goastore Mdk
