    Compiled By Safi Connection. (probably guess from the tracklisting).

    A quik review of 1 line hits.

    01. Beat Hackers Tight as ever, trademark high hats, more Infected Influence by the bucket with a big Rock splash, not there best for me. Always starting\stopping\swoppin sections, sometimes should let em go on a bit longer. New Analog masters??

    02. Mekkanikka, Improved sound from the album, bit generic psy but groovy gear. Plenty of his defining swooshing noises.

    03. Plenty of weirdness from Lemurians, definetly developing I was surprised, New school demented synths and really twisted arrangement, not afraid to make it dirty. got a good flow thru the track. Not really my style to play but well good.

    04. First Safi collaboration, with Space Tribe, Full on Blaster lots of different pumpy basslines jammed in there nxt door to each other. kinda knew what was up next.

    05. Safi and Melicia give us a warning, more fun than the last for me, squiggly synths bubbling along nicely and a spacey chord sequence kinda classic theme territory. hollow woody perc and a party feel.

    06. Space Buddha, puts us into familiar israeli territory. It's all good but a little heard it B4 israel Rave for me. I know some peeps who love his stuff and it's really well made, so don't let me put you off.

    07. Safi with Sally Doolally, oozing old skool and outdoors, with a vibe of it's own. Some of the synth line are kinda amateurish, but that just adds to it's charm. Lush Melodies, Fun and young!

    08. Album gets real interesting with an entry from S Range, more upbeat than his usual stylee. Tribal chants, funky guitar licks well staged, with many different moods, and atmospheres demented cookoo clocks and some mental vocodery action.

    09. A summery start to Neo Logic's track, good stuff didn't realise they had taken that sort of direction a bit lighter easy to digest, organic. With some cowboy guitar style action nearly expected some 3/4. freeform jazzy stuff to end.

    10. Safi this time on his tod, dropped into deep space territory. another phat production with some really bendy bits to make you go all floppy on the floor.

    Some good tracks but didn't really blow my socks off, like some of the stuff that has been around recently.

    Polaris Review Coming Up Soon.... :!: :Grin:

    Nice review Geoff.

    I was a bit uncertain whether to get this one cos I haven't thought much of Safi's stuff since the excellent Prince of Paranoia.

    I even found D Compilation among my collection the other day and wondered why on earth I ever bought it :?

    This compilaton however is much more like it although it does contain some of my favourite artists of the moment.

    I think the Lemurians track is refreshingly different and also the S Range is not what I expected but still very good. Main dissapointment for me is the Space Buddha remix which is not that different to the original and not as good (IMO).

    But at least it's the only remix on there. :Smile3:
    **COUGH Are you listening Tip World? COUGH**

    Hey was sat listening to this the other day, looking at the cover and reading the Big Up\Special Thanks List... The usual who's who of Psy Trance (check it out I'm mates with _______ fill in the blank) and I noticed They Put "Roger Ram" down for Raja... I nearly pissed myself...

    So what do you rekon:

    A/. Blatent Pisstake
    B/. Friendly Joke
    C/. Lack of Spelling\English Language Skills By Israeli Graphic Design Company

    Either way made me laugh! :Grin:
