Review: Following on from the excellent "Scene In Mirage" reissue that broke O Yuki Conjugate to a whole new crowd, Emotional Rescue return to the archives of the over-looked Nottingham "dirty ambient" outfit. Their second LP "Into Dark Water", originally released in 1987, is just as powerful as the first - a hypnagogic journey fuelled by a global stew of sound, feeding into elegant, evocative pieces. Fans of classic Jon Hassell will find much to enjoy here, but equally those appreciating the exotic post punk undercurrents of 23 Skidoo et al will easily find themselves drawn to the likes of "Ba-makala". Stunning, borderless musings from a hidden treasure of the UK's post-industrial heritage.
Review: 18 years later the world can finally listen to a new Chari Chari album: We Hear The Last Decades Dreaming.
A sublime original collection of organic-electronic music filled with an exotic design in the middle of nowhere from japanese composer and producer, Kaoru Inoue.
The inspiration for the album came from Kaoru's recent vinyl-digger fever, which has been rekindled after a long time since the beginning of his DJ career.
The influences such as contemporary music, minimal music, ethnic music, ambient, new age music, and avant-electronic music make this LP a total blissful journey - psychedelic sound scroll led by the title itself that contains a will to break away from the rich culture and timelessness of the past decades, and a narrative that embraces the changing times.
This is a truly magical event in such exceptional year in our lives. And again the East - West connection shows its spiritual magnetism to the world.
