Yes I agree with all reviewer's here

I do like all these tracks in a meditative state with and after yoga or a workout - My Name is God, Aton and Sun are delicious !

After his debut as Spicelab, Oliver Lieb decided to try his hand at tribal techno with THE AMBUSH. And after an ambient visit to Africa, "Rain" segues into the beats for a deeper track, while "Cassablanca" is more spacy and has a nice, gradual build, though it's not particularly Moroccan in any way. "My Name is God" adds a touch more energy with its more bouncy melodic line, though the vocal samples enter to help maintain an organic feel to the track, while "Terra" returns to the ambiance, buoyed by some live drumming from Harald Grosskopf. The drum frenzy grows on 'Jungle Fever" but the longer hypnotic experience of "Sun" closes the album on a more sedate note with Native American chants before the beats kick in to drive things home. A nice change of pace for Mr. Lieb.

Some serious Tribal Beats & Percussion is at work in "My Name Is God". This track is unlike most oliver lieb productions of the time. Turn it up and you may feel god coming down any second.

Style: Trance, Tribal, Ambient... My favourite styles! I like this album so much. Its atmosphere is so deep, hypnotic, meditative and natural. Elements of sound used in the album are very beautiful and mellow. Sounds of the African tribes injected into ecstasy and serenity at the same time. It is one of the strongest production by Oliver Lieb, and one of my favourite album ever.
