This is dance music -- and, much to my astonishment, I love it! It is also a deep and richly textured blend of rhythms, voices and electronics with natural sounds... life-enhancing and demonstration quality. Entheogenic are my discovery of the year.
Haunting, oppressive, evocative of endless frozen spaces under the polar night. On headphones in a darkened room, a scarily immersive experience. Also recommended: Dan Simmons' Franklin expedition novel, " The Terror".
Soulful and melodic, hard-edged and percussive, traditional and adventurous... not too different from the first jazz I loved (from Trane and Miles), yet with a contemporary feel and great modern recording and excellent sound quality.
