    Androcell
    Emotivision
    Celestial Dragon (Japan/Australia)

    This week’s chillfest continues with this neat little album from Androcell, that almost stands up as a multimedia artistic piece just as well as it does an album. Packaged along with a nice little booklet showcasing some nice digital art from Androcell’s alter-ego Quasga (including Blue Shroom Cowgirl, which finally combines the three essential life elements of chicks, bikes and psychedelics), it adds up to a nice overall package. Androcell works best when he falls into dubby soundscapes (Molecular Sunrise, Hash Bazaar), and the marvellous Dub Crystals sounds like The Orb got stuck in a hotboxed elevator with Ott and came out giggling like Cheech & Chong, before retiring to the studio to lay down some tunes while Youth and King Tubby made the tea and cucumber sandwiches, respectively. Occasionally odd-sounding chord changes sometimes make the music sound a little disjointed, but it doesn’t detract from the fluid, silky chillout that Androcell’s made his own on this CD. With a nod to ethno treehugging amberdelica, but keeping one foot firmly in bass-heavy dub workouts, this is a nice little package which, by the time it peaks with Fungus Garden, will have you grinning from ear to ear.
