Its time to get twisted, with the latest artist album from the pioneering Iboga label, out of Denmark. There is no better vehicle for this style of forward thinking psy and progressive than this label, as four years after 'Free Cloud', Perfect Stranger returns with a brand new artist album best described as a "sonic adventure". Of the 21 mammoth tracks on offer, there is a split between original new music, and remixes & collaborations in the later half (with artists like; Liquid Soul and Eat Static). Highlights for us include; 'Perfect Static', 'Carnalisimo', and 'Sundance'. By far the most exciting psy album we have heard this year.
Dub Police's MyStyle mix series has become a force to be reckoned with in dubstep, an annual showcase from some of their most exciting artists, each outing appears deeper, more involving and widescreen than the last. The Others has clearly gone to town here with a whole heap of his productions and collaborations. For mix lovers this is a must; 28 tracks all seamed together tightly, it explores the darkest corners of the scene with a brave boldness. Those looking for individual tracks will also be pleased to see the likes of Icicle's techno-like industrial VIP "Need A Job", Sleeper's disturbing "Civil War" and Thelem's tripped out mind-twister "Haunted Harmonics". Stylish, sonically arresting and consummately accomplished, The Others has represented himself with serious skills right here.
