Come on! Anyone who loves good album/cd cover art should by this just for the wonderful pastel like mixed media imagery! A journey of the senses here from mind altering drones to down-tempo beat driven electronica. A myriad of styles but none over the top or the least bit commercial. This is esoteric music thats non-sterile and ergonomically connected. The Spice Barron's track is worth it alone! I just wished Silent was never sold to another owner they had the forward momentum and pioneering spirit that made/makes a great label memorable.

Worldwide change is happening now. Established boundaries of culture are being dissolved. Ambient music is emerging as a soundtrack to the changes of this decade - evolving, formless, juxtaposing sample reference points to blend diverse sounds from across the globe. Peculiarly, the most diverse and hypnotic material currently available is coming from the very edge of the Earth’s physical terrain, the West Coast of America. The last undiscovered continent may be the fragile and emotional interzone between humane beings and their jeopardised planet. The combined divergence of two currents, eco v. techno, represent an interface between creativity and technology that is already shaping the future. It is technological psychedelic music like this.

This compilation offers a fine selection of emphatic soundtracks. These oceanic myriads of timeless transcending provide a temporary oasis for cloud floaters, moonwalkers and star riders. San Francisco is pioneering an explorative, new and progressive sound: The Dark Beautiful’s mysterious ‘Diaphanous’ or the drifting ‘Heart Ov Thee World’ by XKP simply could not have been produced anywhere else in the world. When the majority of ‘ambient’ material is lazily indulgent and ill conceived there is a clear need for music that is pursuitist instead of escapist. To find it, you could start looking here.
