Imaginarium

Origins EP

Tip Records

 

Tracklist:

1. Origins

2. Colliding Orbits

 

The icnoic Shiva continues to be a wonderful deity over great psytrance.

 

Imaginarium is the full-on project of Sonic Entity, the sometimes good, sometimes not-great, popular progressive act. The results, for a guy not usually associated with this full-on thing, are fantastic!

 

"Origins" is everything you should expect from Tip at this point in their storied history, it is short, it is damn good, it is nice old-fashioned psytrance. No bells-and-whistles, nothing fancy or ground-breaking, just nice old-fashioned psytrance. Where the pace is brisk without being intense, where the imagination is sparked the moment the tracks begin, where the versatility makes it a dance-floor filler, day or night, where your evening out should not be considered complete unless magic of this sort is projected from the sound system you find yourself standing in front of.

 

Imaginarium makes crisp and clear productions here with "Colliding Orbits" being the more magical of the two. However, the title track is not one that I will be booting out of my collection, either. The down point is that, unfortunately, there are only two tracks. Well, quality over quantity, I suppose.

 

From the legendary Tip Records, where so much great music has come from, where so many great artists have called their home, after twenty-plus years in the game, this is the high quality we should expect from them. This is great, down-to-basics, back to the "Origins," good old-fashioned psytrance.

Since I usually ignore progressive I was initially skeptical of the crossover, but this EP is actually pretty good.

 

Upon further investigation I also discovered three more Imaginarium EPs issued within the last year: Singularity (Tip Records), Nature Of Consciousness (BMSS), and Intoxicated (Digital Om).

The first two are stronger than the third.

Yep, I was very skeptical, too! The new Sonic Entity album sounds exactly like a Sonic Entity album, no surprises at all, completely by-the-numbers stuff. Imaginarium, though, is a very good project. Thanks for those links, will definitely be checking out the earlier stuff!
