1> If you listened to his album 'A Cup Of Tea', you already know what kind of production you can expect from this French artist Kick Bong as Pure Love is in the following. The atmosphere is cloudy, ethereal, hypnotic.

2> Kuba delivers some exotic dub vibes with The Place It Starts. I notice the tune takes a moment to really start (1''30) which long compared to the total running time of this track (5'52). As i previously said, the feeling is on the exotic side with Indian flute or ice block synth for the melody with additionnal African voices.
I'm not fully convinced by this production it lacks something that would afford to consider it as more genuine.

3> Rocket light makes you penetrate through the prism of the Morning dimension with a muffled jazzy downtempo production : Enterprise is gonna cover your eardrums with silk. The global feeling is very aerial & light, in a word floating.

4> For beginning same remark as in previous Kuba's track, the starting is much way too long ( upto 2''00 here). Otherwise the major difference with the original emanates from a more acoustic sounding version despite this it keeps very close from it. Personally i don't see too much what or how it's supposed to embellished this song. So, was it necessary to do this remix? The answer is no, even if if there's nothing awful here just a feeling of a filling track.

5> Kuba delivers some Balearic-Dub style within Road To Find Out, embellished with some feminine Oriental (Indian?) & African voices. From 4'39, the melody confers a supplementary swift Asian touch, definitively this track is multi-cultural :) . When Kuba express with the necessary time needed his own production skills it's much way better & furthermore than his remix production.

6> Jong (another French Artist) cooked an highly twisted psychedelik downtempo full lenght version of Sideways, you'll hardly recognize the original or need a lot of concentration to manage it. The result is really surprising & entertaining.

7> I'm not fan of the melody & i find out the flow not to be smooth (especially at beginning, it improves later on) which is the last straw for a chill song!

8> Enterprise is an interesting Chill artist that i enjoy major part of the time not to say all the time but Eniac is not his best tune. He has already been more inspired by the past, just compare with 'Rocket Light' on this V/A ...

9> Floating layers coupled with a light piano, such are the ingredients contained in Air from Zero Cult. Around 3''00, it tends to be more hypnotic with a strong immobility feeling, at this part the tune aims to generate on you an inner travel. Emotionally speaking this track ranks at a high level, be prepared for it!

10> The melody & more globally this tune has a melancholic aspect, like contemplating the snow dropping outside through the window near his radiator or fireplace for the luckiest.

I'm disappointed by the tracks quality's selection as Chillcode used to cook us high level chill release standard up to now, let's hope it'll come back for Chiller vol.2. It comes, for me, from the fact that several artists come back on several tracks which contributes to a lack of diversity & creativity...



Only 6/10 for Chiller vol 1.
