What initially attracted me to this release was the remix pack. Donato Dozzy, Rrose and Jasper Dahlback. You could not sleep on that even if on a triple dosage of Xanax. Dope on wax through and through. However, then I ventured into the originals, admittedly, only after being exposed to their magnificent "Blomma" album. Well, to keep it concise, the originals surpassed the respective remixes. Which, naturally, is in no way meant to bring down their quality. Clouds And Water being the standout of the two. So I listened, enjoyed, giggled and worshiped.

Just recently, due to circumstances beyond my own influence, I realized that, as utterly amazing as it may be, the version of the track I was listening to for over a year is actually a butchered vinyl edit (clocking in at fifteen minutes, mind you). Naturally, in no time was I all over the internet determined to dig that original out! Boy was I in for one hell of a ride. The original version, albeit digital only, is an almost thirty two minutes long odyssey of sounds, a melting pot of styles, influences and moods. Music that moves and makes one move.

Oh my God. If you thought that vinyl edit was some other level material, you are in for a treat. Although I usually prefer the format of the shiny black disc, I would shameless lie if I advised you to skip out on the digital version of this masterpiece. Acidic, melodic, funky, layered and elaborate. If you enjoyed the lengthy, textured pieces laid out across their sophomore album, you'll be all over this - I guarantee you. The other tune has a way of working its charms, and displaying celestial melodies and pads - no doubt - however, you really need to just kick it back, sink into your sofa or something, and let the immersive journey of Clouds And Water fully absorb you. Sonic elegance that effortlessly eschews pigeonholing and levitates miles above genre boundaries and restrictions. Play it at the right time and to the right crowd, and the after party is yours. So is the world.
