An acoustic ethno-chill album with vocals, on the paper the concept didn't amaze me that much.
soon i understood the form it took through the use of bassoon in several
tracks or warm, muffled & soft African vocals or country-folk
influences; i started reconsidering my view about this new Kaya
Project's album.
Seb Taylor has operated some unexpected
alchemies ranging from classic to oriental via Asian, jazzy,African,
country-folk or break beat.
The most astonishing resides in
his capacity to employ very distinctly sometimes 3 or 4 big influences
in unique coherent tracks.

In order to
highlight the previous statement, i'd recommend the listen of "Jammin
with Marco", "Saranghi Breaks", "Zema Lasu", "Five plus Eight",
"Bekhudi" in order to catch a clear idea of the result.

mark: 8/10

The latest release from Kaya Project titled, ...And So It Goes, is full of spiritual and ethnic elements, multi-lingual vocals, and world infused beats. This is a third full length album from a collaborative duo of Sebastian James Taylor and Natasha Chamberlain. Incorporating digital production design with organic instruments, Taylor and Chamberlain create a beautiful downtempo album with elements of tribal rhythms and dusty dub grooves. This album is full of contributions from many artists, like Deepak Pandit on Indian violin, Susi Evans on clarinet, and excellent vocals by Irina Mikhailova. Some of the above artists have previously worked with Taylor under his other moniker, Hibernation, with the very latest release, Some Things Never Change (Aleph Zero, 2008). Taylor has always been a pretty busy guy. On the side, he manages to put out 12" breakbeat EPs on Sinister Recordings under his Digitalis alias. Meanwhile, some may recall his early psytrance work under Shakta moniker, with the last album being Feed The Flame (Dragonfly, 2004). In this latest work, Taylor and Chamberlain join forces once more, to display their wide artistic range through music that is at once relaxing, groovy, and earthbound. One can picture carefree belly-dancers performing around the fire, circled by musicians connected to their instruments with heart and soul. It is at once a feeling of happiness and unity with the one. Recommended for the likes of Asura, Tripswitch, Solar Fields and Entheogenic.
