Review: You can always count on Denmark's Iboga records for forward thinking freshness, and this latest compilation album is most definitely that. Compiled and mixed by Supercozi, one of Japans leading psy & progressive DJs. It has been a year in the making with 12 unreleased tracks, having been hunted from around the globe. It's a tripped out, chilled vibe with artists such as; Blue Planet Corporation, Mindez, Eastern Rebel Alliance, and Gus Till amongst others. Across many of the tracks there is enough energy, imagination and staying power to play out to the floor it's also a great album to get on the ipod for daily listening and inspiration and would make the wicked soundtrack to any after party. Give this a go, you wont be disappointed.
Review: As far as compilations go, a lot of the time labels and artists struggle to find a defining set of voices within. This selection from the guys at Shanti Planti entitled 'Rhythm Code III' is a great example of how to do it right however. The tracklisting ranges drastically in styles, from the smoother sounds of Wolf Tech's 'Interstellar Transmissions' and 'Plant Pontificate' from Chris Komas, to the more neurotic vibes of Ecometric's 'Embers' or EurthmY's 'Delirium'. A special shout has to go to Duffrey and Sub.conscious for their futuristic contributions also.
