Very Psychedelic release from Matsuri...with very famous artists...

This comp is pretty dark with plenty of acid sounds...Best track for me is

"Quirk - Dark Matter"...it's stompin' track with dark (ofcourse) atmosphere,

and it's very wierd...but i like it...Grade for this comp should be 6.5/10

A diverse And stimulating selection

of psychedelia... you've got

Digitalis, doing his atmospheric

thang, XIS, with a track that

re-defines "killer", the Israeli

cyber-trance sounds of Space Cat

and Freeman Vs Liquid Metal, the

shifting grooves of Prana to keep

us on our toes, Quirk with the

best track they ever did, and

three (!) awesome breakbeat

numbers, all very different in

sound And execution. What an album.

This is Matsuri's finest hour,

buy it. 9.5/10

Jeez...smells like something died in here.

 

The question with releases by Matsuri after the golden age of goa was always which Matsuri was going to be represented?  As a label they were a bit up and down.

 

Shadows and Flashes had shadows and flashes of a good psytrance/goa hybrid.  Missed it by that much.

 

Space Cats had potential.  True, a lot of it went unrealized.

 

Kollage could be one of Prana's weakest efforts.  Throwing noises together doesn't make it psychedelic.  Stop f*cking around with Boundless and someone please update this one.

 

Liquid Noise had it's moments, but wasn't very coherent.  Just kind of a aural regurgitation.

 

Dark Matter see Liquid Noise.  And anything else by Quirk.

 

Deflo's track Naked makes me want to tell it to put it's clothes back on.  Noisy mess.

 

Scare Electric is more raw breakbeat and I cannot get enough of that funky percussion!  Not to mention some saucy turntablism.    Funky like hockey gear that hasn't been washed.

 

Sun-God is breakbeat juicy, but not very varied.  The first few minutes are great, but after that I'm lookin' at my watch wondering if Dendron went for a smoke break.

 

I look at it like this.  If you wouldn't want to put any of the tracks on a mix tape, then you probably aren't really that in love with them.  IMHO I don't believe these tracks have any staying power.  So yeah...I would say this was an example of down.  But it's different and sometimes that can be a good thing depending on your mood.

 

Just don't forget a courtesy spray.

Matsuri shows us why psychedelic trance is so named. Some tracks here, like Kollage or Naked, are more on the psychedelic side, playfully arranged and stuffed full of weird noises. Some, like Space Cats or Sun God, are more trancy and gradually elaborate on a theme. The album has a futuristic feel, suggestive of cyberpunk SF, and some tracks could even be called industrial with their dark techno-dystopian vibe. Everything sparkles with crystal clear production, and the mastering lets the music breathe without lacking in punch.

 

IMHO, this is what a compilation album ought to be. It's far from homogenous -- no two tracks are alike -- but the atmosphere is consistent and the journey is more than the sum of its individual steps. Unlike most VAs, it works as an album. I bought this in 1998 and still listen to it on a regular basis; anyone looking for the true 'psychedelic trance' should have this in their collection.
