ELF Music has fast become one of the steadiest suppliers of high quality Japanese psytrance… They linger somewhere in between hard-hitting underground stuff like Slum, fluffier club trance like Tri-Force and nu-school goan psytrance like Phi and Drap Drop… I’ve liked the majority of their releases and after a couple of really excellent artist albums from Slum and Drap Drop it’s time for another compilation – the first since the brilliant from After 10 Years Of Japanese Trance from 2004. Again it’s a mix of upcoming talents and established Japanese artists… Let’s get it on!

Another VERY fine ELF Music release comes to and end. The psy-samurai sacrificed another one of his nine lives to dance with geishas, party hard with the Yakuza and smoke it up with Confucius. Two years down the road from After 10 Years Of Japanese Trance I cannot think of a better snapshot of the current state of Japanese trance affairs, than this excellent compilation. It ranges from fluffy club trance to the hardest, most deranged underground psytrance imaginable. So whilst the flow might be a little off, the sheer magnitude of music more than makes up for that.

The first half of the CD has a couple of cheesy club trax which didn’t really please my taste buds, but the second half excels with one sure-fit mega-hit after another… The level of experimentation is impressive and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the second half of the CD is… Those five tracks are worth every single yen you have to pay for this CD. The Monty Phyton-inspired artwork work is also very nice and fits the music perfectly. Trust me on this one; if you haven’t heard this CD you’re missing out… Big time! Recommended to all fans of eclectic, electronic music in all its guises…. Enjoy!
