Seems like Tyler Smith has a lot of creativity surging through him; he has beautifully explored different soundscapes than those of Androcell, and I agree with the other comment which says this could have easily been released on Ultimae. It's hypnotic and pulsating with melody woven throughout it; and as expected from Tyler, a lot of intelligence hidden in the details. There's constantly new things to be heard in the many, many layers of this totally chilled out, spacey journey. 5/5

Tyler Smith better known maybe as Androcell has changed the moniker & is out with a new album. I was expecting as the artist name had changed that style would have changed. For some reason I was expecting a completely beatless album which this is not. Instead it's a Ketamine laced trance album. Slow steady kicks, lot's of spacey atmospheres & beautiful beautiful melodies. I was not disappointed that I got the wrong idea about this album at all, I was in fact pleasantly surprised at the strength of Tyler's ideas, production & execution.
This album I think could easily have been released on Ultimae. The sounds is there (maybe due to the mastering by ultimae guys but probably due to Tyler's skill) it's soft, it's got some light/heavy kicks & a hell of a lot of atmosphere. It puts me in mind of Asura's last album Life² but this has more of a journey to it. A Journey through space & a lush one at that. One of the best releases of 2008 so far & I'll stick my neck out & say it will be at the end of the year. Definitely one to get believe me.
