Like Noel Saavedras accompanying artwork, the narrative is vibrant yet nightmarish, a vision of classic trance music, including its psy side, refracted through 's fearless, oddball aesthetic. Nina Kraviz sets the tone with 'test'. Kyokas link coaxes you in with suggestive murmurs from all angles like an auditory hallucination. Ryan James Ford and ANTIGONE make label debuts, while SOPHIE and Juliana Huxtable unite for the first time as Analemma - a formidable pairing with an abstract offering, merging trance elements, metallic and corporeal sound design with vintage euphoria.
TRIP misfits PTU do their best to upset your sense of time and meter with two modern psy trance interpretations. Carlota contributes the nervously optimistic title track. Alan Backdrops hair and pulse raising yet classy nizaj clears the way for the grand finale: X-Dreams murky, mesmeric and minimalistic genre classic superintelligence. On the digital a clever mix that was previously unreleased outside Japan will be released. Masters sit alongside newcomers to the form, on an LP for dancers deep in a fugue state.
