Released some months ago by the great Israeli record label Aleph Zero, the long awaited Eitan Reiter album is a perfect companion for the European summer (or to warm us here on the Brazilian winter). Who?! Maybe you know him by his more famous project, the awesome trance act Loud.
I admit that I was expecting something more experimental based on the “Coffee” track (released on the “Natural Born Chillers 2″ and reappearing here), which I love, but instead we got half of smooth loungy tracks and half of morning warm ambient journeys. The more conventional loungy jazzy ones are cool but doesn’t really tell me much… Maybe on a summer festival siting on the grass?
With the other half we get something different. Deeper, very warm and emotional morning ambient gems. Most of the times a very happy vibe is obtained, reminding me of some crazy caribbean atmospheres (if this make sense). In my opinion is worth getting the album for this tracks! Here is one of my favorites: Smile.
It’s clear that Aleph Zero is trying to release push the envelope of the psychedelic ambient scene on every release. Even if their latest releases are not your style there is no doubt that it’s extremely well done and different. Worth a listen for sure!
