Try 2 Bass rmx "I will bring you hope! And I only ask for one thing in return...don't get in my way." Ketuh Records was Timecode and Nexus Media before they were a household name. Yeah I know they weren't a South African label, but work with me here. Ketuh released some of the twisted night time full on before that became a thing. Audialize is Joao Apell and this was his debut album. Now more than 10 years old it still brings the heat even if it can show its age in spots. Howver, back in 2003 it was on the cutting edge of night time psytrance. Full of acid and dark atmosphere I think it opened a lot of peoples eyes. Almost as if we didn't understand what type of music this was. It's not the happy full on that's everywhere, but it's also not totally dark. Generator and G-Strings are prime examples of the type of melodic yet dark tracks that still rock. This guy blazed a trail for those that would follow. Killer Buds, Ex-Gen, Concept, Tickets...you name it. I can still enjoy the twilight sounds in this one. Mdk
Artist: Orion Title: Artificial Frequencies Label: Solstice Music International Date: September, 2003 1. Horizon 2. Zig-Zag 3. Timeless Devotion 4. Sleepwalking 5. Viva Bahamas 6. Fast Lane 7. Body balloons (remix) 8. Dig It 9. Ocean of Colours The man who gave us the psychedelic goa classic Futuristic Poetry delivers a very solid full-on album. I almost hate to use that term because the richness of production here is rarely found in that subgenre. Especially not in 2003. The sounds are organic and layered giving it a deep fullness. There are plenty of alien effects which create a dark atmosphere making for great night time listening. I mean with a track named Viva Bahamas I'm thinking bright sunny beaches and chicks spilling out of bikini tops not aliens looking for their next meal. Very good stuff from Mr. Borelli. Mdk
