Bass, Sweat & Tears

Interchill (Canada)

I think I’ve found my new going-to-sleep-album. Do you have a going-to-sleep-album? I can just about think back to previous going-to-sleep-albums I’ve had; Fila Brazilia, Massive Attack (great choices) and a girl I met from Sydney had Jack Johnson as hers (another great choice). What I’m trying to say, through the medium of inane drivel, is that this album is special. Not just because it’s Gaudi’s fifth. Not just because there are forty two musicians from the world and dub music circles playing on this album. And not just because it took three and a half years of traveling the world to record it. Nope. The thing is, there’s so much spirit grained through his album; it’s like it’s permeated with this benevolence, this cheese-free optimism and general positivity at the state of the planet (or if not its state, then a celebration of its diversity and artistry). Anyway the point is, it works. The chanting and pace of Sufani is a sheer delight, and percussive runs of Ayahuasca Deep Fall are nothing short of staggering (especially when turned up loud), while Tutta pe’me and …And The Esrth Said: Oh My God are staggering showcases of completely different vocals, point in completely different directions, but somehow seem to make the same point: that of a joyously creative planet. Gaudi has an innate feeling for dub, thus tracks have a tendency to leave rich, soaking bass pouring out of your speakers. It’s like a breath of fresh air this, really. There’s no pretensions to chilled-trance credibility, no mimicry, no desperate attempt to elongate one or two of the tracks; in fact, one gets the rare feeling listening to this, that Gaudi had to cut out more tracks than he left in, a real testament to the quality and artistry that’s gone into this. One word of warning is that your girlfriend or even your mum may end up nicking this. It’s also incredibly involved, exquisitely-crafted, one hundred percent quality. This is simply one of the best dub/world music albums I have ever heard, and for which the word “chill†is almost an insult.

i've just spotted that gaudi's playing at PsyDMT on Nov 20th, assuming this is a freebie gig then it could be pretty much essential...

i'm all over this album like sarah jessica parker lookalikes over a psytrance reviewer :P
Yep, Saturday the 20th of November at the Psy DMT is going to be the official launch party for this amazing album :smokingr:

and after everyone off to the Mass for Symbiosis!!!

Does it come with a scratch and sniff card to really sample the quality of the sweat he has put into it, sorry I'll stop being stupid now. (goes back to sensible mode) :Grin:
