One of the best albums I own!!Really!Quiet original, we can say that Biot has

its own style.All the tracks are excellent, but my favorite is Oxygen Orgasm,

and then Radiation.Beware, this album requires a certain number of listens so

as to be appreciated to its own value.8.5/10

Review:

 

Wow ! Great debut album ! It does not sound as complex as other goa albums, but

it really works ! Each sound is perfectly employed and the majority of samples

are original (Wonderful voice samples in Oxygen Orgasm and Vortex Tribe). The

different tracks are not linked together, but it doesn't matter. All tracks

are perfect. My favourites are Oxygen Orgasm, a happy track, very uplifting,

Plastronix, Radiation, Vortex Tribe... 8.5/10

I think that's a pretty good album ... don't think there's any Bad Tracks

(maybe 3 which is a little too repetitive), and my favourites are Tracks 2 and

7 :-) An album you can listen to in its entirety without being bored,

but it's difficult to remember from which Track comes a particular sound ...

don't know why ... Rating : 5.5/10

Not as good as said....all thoses tracks are so simple, looks like Nitendo

music...Listen to the whole album is nearly impossible...if you want to

discover Biot music you should listen to his second album (Synthetic Organic)

which is much more better.

Oxygen Orgasm is one of those rare and amazing powerful tracks that never loses

its effect. Good album, worth bying for Oxygen Orgasm alone.

Biot "Saturation" is a must-own for those who would embrace the

fringes of minimal trance music. I've no regrets on this one. Please mail me

if you can turn me onto something good. Im not afraid to enjoy music away from

the parties.

Very nice one here by Biot. Inventive, mostly dark but not heavy, well-thought

and harmonic. Some boring trax (1,3) but the rest is perfectly balanced.

Favourites: 4,5,7,8,11. (8/10)

Oh I like this one. Some songs have that slower more chill goatrance/ambient feel. :)

I've just realised I haven't posted any comment for this album...sheesh.

 

This album is so unsual for goa trance, it is almost experimental. The production is not that crispy, but the melodies he is using and psychedelic effects are so good. What a shame this guy hasn't released more stuff coz this album is in the end very good. Lots of unusual twists in the tracks and strange arrangements of sounds. I love it. It is by far the most unusal experiemental goa trance album.

 

RADIATION, OXYGEN ORGASM, SOL STREAM, IGNITION are my favourites. 8/10

Agree on the production aspect, quite noisy sometimes. But actually he has released a follow up which is pretty nice imo, very atmospheric and arranged like a journey. Production quality is better as on the Saturation album, too.

 

Plus he has a sideproject called "Sonic Body" under which he released a groovy and more relaxed album.

Huh, how could I forget ? :huh: But of course, when I don't have that album, but only one single from it. I have to go and look for it. :D

This is better than his second album....

 

I wouldn't say it's minimal, but the tracks are lacking depth. Better than being full of layers that add nothing just for the sake of not being minimal.

 

Decent stuff. 5/10

This is a bit of a weird one. It's rough and raw, without lush melodies, but dark and atmospheric. Fully psychedelic. The first shot across the goa bow comes during Plastronix and its liquidity is delicious. I certainly wouldn't call this minimal. Far from it. There is a heavy techno influence throughout the album which was common on the back side of the golden age of goa trance. Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but a pretty good tech-trance/goa album.
