Review: 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.

Review: There aren't many pairings in electronic music as well suited as Denmark's legendary Iboga label and their standout pioneering star Perfect Stranger. Forward thinking progressive music with more than a touch of psy trance thrown into the mix. His recent album 'Lead of Faith' is still on our playlist, and ranks as one of the finest in it's field over the past 12 months. They now look back to the title track and enlist two fresh remixes, (as there is plenty of life left in the LP). Our pick of the two is the floor friendly Riktam & Bansi rework, which keeps things light and bubbling while bringing in some techno influences with grooving moods, notably in the beats and bottom end. It's a real party moment that will work in a wide spectrum of sets, and sound super fresh!
