Big up to the Dubsalon for this wicked LP, every single aspect of this well-crafted piece is absolutley amazing! What grabs my attention most though is the groovy percussion, every hit, every fill is so clean and panned ever so proper. The album changes tempos every so often giving the listener a nice relief from the previous groove, nothing but good vibes coming from this piece. The first tune on this LP entitled “In a Dream” hooks you into this deep space ride, training you, getting you ready to expierience something many people will never get to encounter. With synths that sound as if they were falling from the skies and ambiences only those of different galaxies can comprehend this tune takes you on a ride you won’t soon forget, and of course right smack in the middle is a thick bassline just carrying the tune right along. I suggest opening up your mind and forgetting all that you know and just letting the music take control, many people may say that but it’s not very often that the music is as smooth and thorough as this. The next tune on the album cannot be named more perfect, it is called “Shifting mood” and that’s exactly what the music is doing, the tempo slows down giving the tune kind of a “moomba” percussive feel but forget all those mid range squelches and noises, nothing but pure music and positivy is layed upon this beat, once again I love Dubsalon’s use of panning he really makes sure your head is in a different place when you listen to this, the space he provides is unbelievable and only helping that is the increble use of delays and reverbs, so clean and no masking. With all the space there is so much room for melody and Dubsalon took advantage of that like no other. Dubsalon tends to keep this slow groove for a few more tunes before bringing the tempo back up. The order of the songs on this album is even awesome, this being one of the most important things (even though most don’t know it) it makes sure the listener does not feel too dragged along and listening to this album… well, I DID NOT want it to end. BIG UP DUBSALON AND BIG UP IDEOLOGY RECORDS!
