Review:

 

This CD is typical Slide-style!!! And that style is

pretty good, but when you hear 9 songs that are almost the

same, it becomes rather boring... It's a pitty that he can't

use other sounds... The best song is defintely Unstable!!

Other good songs are: 1,4,7&8!! Bom Shankar

Having seen Slide live a couple of weeks before this was released, I admit to

being slightly disappointed. Slide's live set was genuinely one of the best I

have ever seen - totally ignited Tyssen st. with unique power. Of course, this

is never going to translate to an album, but it seemed a little

two-dimensional and not as interesting as it should have been. Still some

great industrial-styled tunes here which are probably the last of this type

we'll hear from Slide as he seems to have gone down the progressive house

alley (aaagh!).

You can't knock Pete Martin, UX, Slide, ETC. C'mon this is a great album, which

all songs would kill on the dancefloor in 97. Some would still kick today. I

agree with Infected Max. Predator is definitely the best. One of my all time

favorites. Also, I hope Pete Martin would come back to us Pscho-delic fans and

give up the progressive, although I do like Closure. Good song.

Are UX & Slide one person - Peter Martin? If so, he found his unique sound that

makes me wild. His trax are really works on dance floors in the middle of the

night.

Someone, please give answer on my question, shortly

I like this release very much.

 

Unstable is highly powerful, deep pounding, dark goa. This is so intense I really gotta prepare myself to get the right kicks out of this.

 

Perfect stuff for the peak of dj set. Should get any butt moving. Has aged very well and still sounds fresh. :)

 

Big hand to mister Martin for making one helluva dark trance album. There are very few that succeeded in this genre...

 

one of the most underestimated albums in my opinion.

So true... I was always amazed how it didn't get enough attention and it is up there with UX - ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE... :D

Masterpiece.

 

This album rocks, in the true sense of the word. I like how it's avoiding Goa cliches, and its originality that may be the reason why it aged so well.

Also way superior to UX IMHO.

 

And thumbs up to Basilisk for the in-depth review, twas a pleasure to read that one. :)

you mean the one on the Black Rhino comp? 

I didn't get your comment :unsure:

Maybe you think that Saturnalia is the only track I've got?

If this is it don't worry, I own Unstable and yes is a superb album, all tracks are awesome but still Saturnalia is the best dark track ever... :)

Well, it's just that the track entitled "Saturnalia" on the cover of BR is in fact Unobtanium. But if you got the album, then I'm sure you meant the real Saturnalia. It's one of the weaker tracks of the album IMO, that's why I counted in the possibility you were talking about Unobtanium instead (which in fact sounds a lot darker to me) ;)

Artist: Slide (Pete Martin)

Title: Unstable

Year: 1998

Label: Transient

 

 

Tracks:

 

01 Slide - Unobtanium (Dirty Angels Edit)

02 Slide - 2274

03 Slide - Radiation 3

04 Slide - Saturnalia

05 Slide - White Night

06 Slide - Unstable

07 Slide - The Predator

08 Slide - Celestia

09 Slide - The Zinc-Plated Godess

 

Introduction:

 

The year is 2153 the world is covered in ashes and toxic waste because off the big 2012 disaster of which everybody will probably know about by now :ph34r::rolleyes::) . Nobody can live above surface on the desolate apocalyptic landscape that is left of the old world. All human and semi-human activity is now located underground in deep closed hatches and breeding colonies filled with people who are being bread and prepared for future space colonization. Life consists of work, study, reading works of the old thinkers, working on mechanics, exercise in small area’s and try using as less air and nutrition’s as possible. Parties and big events are impossible because of high use of necessary goods and energy.Social contact is limited, “when you’re not useful don’t use limited goods”. The claustrophobic atmosphere and limited real life activities, would make life a living hell if there were not a route of escape…

Bioport acces to Virtual Realities and surroundings are not longer science fiction but available to all. Plug in and trow yourself a psychedelic trance party that feels as real as the real thing and with an environment of your choice… Well here you have one of those albums that contains the darskish sci-fi and mechanical touch that fits such a world. This is Cities of the Future music (and not infected’s Shitties of the future :blink::P ). Excellent atmosphere creating music for the mechanical world!

 

I’m starting of with some info on the cover, it’s ugly as hell (or lets call it acquired taste??), so that issue is handled. Slide is Pete Martin one of the members of the well-known UX (Pete + Kris Kylven). Both projects have a kind off sci-fi dark techy feeling running through the music. Of course this is twisted old school music so don’t expect dark as nowadays, but just feel the atmosphere that flows and swirls through these pieces of trance history. I see UX as the bigger brother of this project and in someway it tells on the issue variation. In my opinion UX contains more difference between tracks and has some tracks that contain some big essence in sound/melody that always makes me fall in awe. Well this slide album has the benefit off lets say the 70 minute track with essential peaks ofcourse, the album builds nice and feels more or less as one track, storytelling wise this works nice. But the tracks seem to lose a bit of that “I’ll be with you always spirit” that obtains a small piece of space in your mind forever. But I love it rest assured :) .

 

Track description:

 

Well I like all tracks from 1 till 8 except track 9 (crappy ambient track). Track 4 and 6 I like the most of all but the others are not far behind. Most tracks contain some of sliding samples and things that sound like suction of hydraulic pumps and stuff that are fit in well behind the melodies and psychedelic electrical sounds. The tracks are very skillfully packet and there is always something going on that draws your attention. Anyway I’m not going to go through it track by track because this album works best as a whole.

 

Conclusion:

 

For me this is an excellent album from the old days and has been played a lot of times.

If you like stuff like U.X. or melodic music with a pinch of dark in the overall feel this could be something for you or not…

This album gets an 8,6/10, would have been 9 or more if there wasn’t the ambient track and if he added lets say dry heat instead of track 3 or so.

Lucky me was able to aquire a brand new copy from Saiko 2 years ago...somehow ;p

Releasing this cd during the time he did - Mista Slide still had his own goa sound. a deeper sound to his acid richness made his tracks glow. I love almost everything about this album. from the weird opening and ending tracks both of which are ghostly. 2274 and Saturnalia have inetense leads that feel as if they are spinning you in many directions. groovy type goa with a Slide shadow sound?? CRAZY! props to pete for being so skilled. this album is up there. and by that I mean UP THERE!! more slide to come please... 8)
