Jagoa

Solar Journey

Ae Records & Neogoa

 

Tracklist:

1. Solar Journey

2. Freedom

3. The Sky Is Crying

4. Searching For The Light

 

Finally!

 

After the lovely psychedelic down tempo offerings of Neogoa's past releases Turlitava and, especially, Spiritual Doping, the ambitious and impressive organizational skills of the one called Richpa launches Ae Records.

 

Not sure what Ae stands for, but the birth of the down tempo-focused sub-label is off to a decent beginning. Here, Richpa's lovely alternative existence away from goa, his wonderful taste in chill, gives the debut of Belgian Jagoa a great platform to shine. As per usual the Neogoa standards are well in hand with crazy-good cover art and crystal-clear production values.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not overly impressed with this one though I am also far from being disappointed. On Solar Journey, Jagoa offers up three good tracks and one that is quite excellent. Certainly, nothing here is subpar.

 

Still, for as decent as the title track and EP opener is it feels somewhat incomplete, as if there is just something else missing that would make the track remarkable. It is a nice chill intro, all the same.

 

By comparison, "Freedom" is simple but profound. The track may deserve a better title, something more befitting to the magic it offers up, but musically, where it matters most, it's tough to imagine what could make the moods any more evocative. This one is superb!

 

Things dip back into chill territory on the decent third track "The Sky Is Crying" and back toward groovier psychedelic realms on the "Searching For The Light" closer.

 

If you are looking for a nice way to experience some pleasant, quality relaxation for the next 40 minutes, "Solar Journey" is a good choice. However, if you're looking for pure magic without the buffers, "Freedom" is where you'll find the spiritual doping.

Anyone else have a clipping sound on Solar Journey when the kick sounds? Kinda like too much bass for my speakers to handle?

 

Other than that it's smooth and relaxing if unspectacular. Good review Bill.
