Once in a while comes an ambient / chill album that is so likable that even my non-ambient friends feel the urge to ask ”what is playing?”. It happened with the first Omnimotion (“Dream Wide Awake”) and lastly with the Gaudi vs Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan album (“Dub Qawwali”). In both cases they were not the type of album that I would spin when playing out (choose something deeper) but the quality was so high that I couldn’t remove it from my cd player.
When I heard that there was a new Bluetech album and the it was going to be released by Interchill records my first thought was: already?! Last year Evan released a great album on Aleph Zero (“The Divine Invasion“) followed by some singles and EPs. He is incredibly prolific! Not complaining here…
As expected this new gem is different from his previous releases and it has the Interchill brand written all over it. Loads of real instruments, vocals and participations. Much more commercial and dub oriented but never loosing the great melodic and nostalgic Bluetech vibe that is his trademark. You even receive one of the best songs Evan has ever composed in my opinion: Seed to Soil.
Bottom line: Go get this fast! It will certainly warm your days with bass juice… Buy it here.
