Sadly there's nothing left of Yagya that I fell in love with a few years ago. If I didn't know it was his record, I would've never guessed.

Wow! This album is surely imported directly from 1993-95 or there about, and that is NOT in a bad way. I did miss out on the Yagya ‎– Stars And Dust 3 LP so I haven't even heard that album and probably never will, but this surely is a pleasant surprise. Somehow, even if this by no means is a "never heard this sound before" kind of album, it just hits all the nice trancey wiggle your body buttons for me.
Ps. I also think that the distro could have been better and that it probably "deserved" a bigger number as it sold out in like 10 seconds or similar. That in itself says it all.
Loving this to bits already, ASIP!
...maybe it would be a good idea to press one edition in Europe and one in the US? It's kind of off to import from USA to Europe these days anyways, it just doesn't work anymore.

A swerve towards a more rhythmic, melodic, involving techno. Fjogur is pretty much head-spinning midnight techno, Tvo a beautiful flying melodic piece, Sjo another almost warehouse take, Sex lushious space flight melodies, Niu mates pulsating bass with super-galactic vocal motes... yeah, Yagya keeps evolving, and keeps breaking dub techno rules As It Should Be. Making it a continuously mixed 60 minute journey even is the icing on the cake. Bravo.

I would like to point out that the distribution of this record was a disaster. It is the first time that I ccouldn't buy a copy of a ASIP on vinyl and I am very disappointed. I pre-ordered a copy at Red Eye Records, Decks.de and Deejay.de and each of them reserved a copy for me, however, when the time came, all of them cancelled my order and they claimed that either they did not get any copies or the ones they got were too little and they had too many orders. I do feel that because of this major *-£k-up the label should seriously consider a repress. Or are you happy a lot of re-sellers will simply make a lot of cash as they bought to resell? It would be appropriate for all the fans and I for one am truly unhappy. Think about it.

Amazing...
The alter ego of his older works...
I'm crying in the last scd of this album.

sometimes I said me "I wish a bit more kickdrum on yagya tracks, I hope he will one day come with". So here I am, Here he is. Attraction law ?
Anyway. Thank you
amazing
please more
really happy for your signature and collab on this (new?) label ?

This album starts off with two familiar dub techno Yagya-style cuts, quickly drops the dubby elements and leaves a relentless 4/4 that becomes more grating as the album continues to the end. There is little variation throughout the album and for a longtime Yagya fan like myself this departure from his warm soundscapes is boring and lacks that special something that make most of his releases such treasures. By playing straight techno on this album it seems like he's trying to get a gig at Berghain, and maybe it'll happen, I just wish there was more to this release.

Wow...i'm really pleased with this release, it's a smooth dubby blessing trip...
Beautifully crafted from beginning to end, Yagya at his best!

Do you like main room techno, but with softer sonic edges? If yes, you will love this new LP by the Dub Techno sultan Yagya. On his new release, Yagya drives the money shot home with a relentless 4 on the floor that just begs the listener to get some knee pads on and strap in for the ride. Gone are the blissful dubs of his earlier albums, and here today are storming heavy hitters, blowing away expectations that one may have based on his earlier work.

Personally, I do not love this album. As a fan of Yagya's work, I am looking for more of his soft, dubby massage techno. This album, although fantastic in its own right, just pounds a little to hard for my personal sonic palette.

Glad I picked this up early as it seems that the dweebs are already selling at 5* the price.

One of the best of the year so far.
