Exploring the softness of 1980 s digital presets, Mind Lotion creates mental landscapes in a way reminiscent to D.K. s escapade to his Island of Dreams (ATN026): mineral samples meet crystalline synths on Dreamscape, evocating half-submerged coral reefs, while the redolent flute on Atmospherica perfectly makes up for a great
piece of Lagoon House. Some tunes from Altitude Attitudes, such as Hotel Breakfast, even recall the naivety of Exotica masters, while My Language s percussions and eerie sounds somehow taking us back to Umiliani s vision of Polynesia or Africa.
The flip provides the most housey moments of the record with Astro Girl: beginning with a heady DX-7 bassline
and layers of digital vibes, the song soon turns itself into a thumping typhoon of club fun. Next to this one is the
closing track, Algo Rydim, which illustrates the equilibrium reached by Mind Lotion on Altitude Attitudes: it always
stays sophisticated, though it never takes itself too seriously.
