This is truly one of the best FSOL disc's to date. The music took a few listens to appreciate it back in the day. Even today, this disc was way ahead of its time. The mixing is so masterful. I picked this up after seeing them live in NYC back in... See full review

From what I remember. This cd was a compilation put together through the 604 list group. Yes, most of these tracks are not the most amazing tracks however none are below average. Nice melodic goa trance with some really solid driven beats. Nicely... See full review

I really agree with the above review. This really is a great ambient dub jam out fun yet serious cd from Robert Musso. This is my favorite release from him. Its not new and earth shattering music but it truly keeps me in tuned and well balanced.

This is a beautifully crafted psychedelic indie rock album. It brings you places. From the drifting zoned out guitar ambience to full on blissed out jamming indie rock. Sometimes without warning it catches you by surprise. Nothing stays too long as... See full review

Track six makes this whole cd worth it for me. Dated sounding techno house but above average for what was out in those days. Innovative at times yet not with earth shattering new sounds. Some are familiar Namlook ambient interlude type segments. A mix... See full review

The deep yet uplifting melodic beatless ambience builds slowly into a dark enlightened world, driftly wandering around, drowning in hypnotic minimalism. Captivating and commanding. Isolating. Repetitive yet not montonous. One of the better Fax releases.
posted a review of Drum Machine Circle - DADA. over 3 years ago
A very underrated Fax Records release and often forgotten. An album with beautiful captivating ambience and somewhat disjointed yet melodic IDM beats in that CUE sorta way. The track "Roswell" tracking in at 38 minutes long, never seems to linger to... See full review

Me too. Saw them live at the Limelight in NYC. July 1995 I think. Sprial Realms opened up for them and were amazing too. 16 Deluxe started the show that evening. One of the most memorable shows I've ever witnessed.

The previous review for this is somewhat misleading. Yes there is some harshness with experimental distortionisms all over the place yet there is some really strong hypnotic tribal trance beats which remain long and consistent. At times these beats... See full review

This is truly one of the most superb albums I have ever listened to. Well done indeed.

This album certainly is an experimental Middle Eastern Bryn Jones glitchy funked up tribal trance beats kind of dub thing. It is beautiful packaging with or without the coin. One of the better Muslimgauze disc's out there.

This album truly is remarkable and defining. It is Bryn Jones during the height of his music. The music is more focused, less glitchy and significantly more laid back. Ambient and a tribal hypnotic middle eastern trance journey, minimal, yet powerful.... See full review

Dated, absolutely! But when you listen to this and realize that it is off of the Fax label, by two artists you are not familiar with, you will be somewhat amazed. It is so not typical of Fax and its early days of trance/hard trance/acid. I still... See full review

This review is spot on in regards to track one. It really strays from the typical ambient music Fax Records is so famous for and finds itself in a more experimental zone (without being disjointed).
