Akira Ito - Bosatu & Mugen = 菩薩と無限 as reviewed by DoctorWhat

March 21, 2013
edited over 3 years ago
What i can say about Akira Ito. Legendary figure in the music world, and separately in the concept of New Age, comparable, maybe, to such phenomenas as Haruomi Hosono, Hiroki Okano.. Akira always brings some fantastic combination of electronic sounds and prog-art rock elements.
Bosatu & Mugen is among of his first works, have been intriguing me for many years, from the time of my acquaintance with this musician. I can't understand why, but only a small part of his works is available in other formats than vinyl (mostly mp3:) and nothing on CD.
Stunning concept and vision of the musician poured in two diametrically opposite sides of one vinyl. Starting with the art-rock on the side A, where everything moves smoothly with a bit stretched drum rhythms, under the sweet birds singing in the best tradition of non-stop music. Pay attention to the second track - Me-Za-Me (7:40-12:13) - remarkably well-chosen balance of instruments resembles, as i feel it, some downtempo atmosphere from Pork Recordings - real space :)
All of this is lost on the second side of the LP, where the gentle ambient, with traditional steps helps you to find yourself surrounded by completely different emotions, and what is important - these are very positive emotions !!
Bosatu & Mugen - one of the top albums of all times. Real music that You can listen to and to love too.

Meat Beat Manifesto - Satyricon DoctorWhat

So many kind words to Mr. Dangers and nothing about the second half of the "Satyricon" that is also a solid part of "99%" with "Subliminal Sandwich's" crew - Jonny Stephens. The lightest things that are smoothing the sharpness in this stuff are coming direct from this man, and that can be clearly seen in this album. He is a very talented music producer who formed a special mood in MBM in the early nineties and it just touched the sound formation too. So, if You would like to find the confirmation of my words, then check out Fire Escape or Hayato Mizuta's Shelter (truly all that i could found). And after that it is not too difficult to understand all the differences and similarities:) As a MBM listener I really miss that unusually pleasant softness and, maybe, the whole general approach in the creation of Satyricon. But i am sure that after Jonny Stephens's retirement the conception of MBM came back to their roots - with more sharpness, more good solid bits and i would even say with some hidden aggression but nothing that could point on "...My Placebo" or "Circles". May be that was Dangers personal vision of a progress... no resemblances, just onward movements and forward-thinking....

Tomáš Dvořák - Samorost2 as reviewed by DoctorWhat

What a wonderful record from a talented man and a repeated holder of various honors like Czech Music Academy Awards 2002 (Angels) and DMAwards 2002 - Pocustone album: Flash Forward Festival Award 2006 / Original Sound Cathegory - Samorost II. The hallmark of this musician is a well-defined combination of live instruments and delicate electronic approach. As the result, in Samorost, we have a clear, deep sound that is intertwined in some interesting pieces with different stylistic approaches: from ambient whispering with odd rhythms up to future jazz steps. The album is not too long (40 min.) and against the background of the logical and surprisingly soft presentation of the music, You can easily listen to this CD in one breath for several times. Samorost2 is a real chance to receive very positive and unforgettable moments..

Ekko (4) - I Know I Am Human as reviewed by DoctorWhat

December 12, 2010
Very rare and hard to find CD outside the Denmark, but it's worth the efforts. If you know Frithjof Toksvig and his works like Deepfried Toguma then you have to face with this album. This stuff is differs from earlier ones: variety of live musicians from many genres and some of them are realy interesting (like Mikael Simpson), new conception in sound - it is more compact and as the result a bit colder (as well as my feelings during listening experience). This CD is not for everyday listening, but if u would like to relax with cool background music (soft beats and interesting harmonies that do not irritate your ears) try this one.

Kay Nakayama - Effect as reviewed by DoctorWhat

Despite on using loops and sounds that you could find on different works from Kay N. and many artists, the atmosphere on this album is very gentle and soft with very deep Hisanos voice that meld with the music like a tree with the ground. Philosophic, chillout and mysterious moods are obvious - it's like warm wind with soft breathing that leads you to dream about something fantastic and just wonderful things. If you ever came across the Ukajin from Something Wonderful then you can realize the depth and the conception of the "Effects" world.

I think this is a wonderful record that represent new ideas in breaks culture involving the listener in to the world with industrial way of living telling us about all society problems (mainly in the USA :). Plenty of video loops and sound breaks, good solid beats, scratches and from time to time with some aggression in poetry: for some years have been mainly available on video, but now offers to us a solid audio piece.The work with some grands like Jack Dangers in this album is noticeable, and this is not surprising - these guys are geniuses. They formed a new conception of making music combining “video sampling” technology to “DJ” music and culture. Fantastic result, reminds some Meat Beat Manifesto and Tino Breaks stuff. It sad, but there is only 1 CD album that i could found.

Not like other works from Uwe Schmidt. Good electronica with elements from IDM, ambient, techno, broken beat and always in the way of eternal experiment. Combine these things and you will get music without stile, just pleasure, analogue sound that always would inspire you.

As for me this is the most lovely, soft, romantic and just beautifull album from Ryan Moore's work. It has some special moods made by magical mystery guests, whom you can't find on other Moore's albums. Traditional steps with superb dub stuff is realy fantastic. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Maybe the most unexpected work from J.B. Considering all their love to Japan with its culture and a special way of making music, represented by Nobukazu Takemura from the one side, and with a huge bag of works in different styles from another - this time it is something new. Pure sound, chill out feelings, soft beats and perfect studio work.

Deep, calm ambient with soft techno-house beats. Wonderful record involving the listener in to the journey inside of some peaceful world. Not as danceful as it could be but with warm, dub chill that envelop your brain and leads you to sleep. I have this more than 10 years and listening to it up to our days.

Cool! Just smoke and listen to ..... and the sound will flow. Not aggressive and not too sweet, but very logical and smooth thing. The 1st part of this CD represented by the Hypnagogia world , but from the 7th track feelings are changing (maybe just because Woob is near?)) If you are in with solid but a bit strange sound combined with nifty beats imposed on ambient landscapes then don't look the rest of the reviews, just find it. Some tracks are really exciting..
