"This CD I found used and it is wonderful! This is electronic music that is on the dark side- no vocals- but will entice you. The CD kind of flows together. There is some "dance" type pieces, I suppose, but it is more for intense mental focusing. It is nothing like Steve H so do not worry there. The synthesizers are rich, encompassing a deeper place and mood. The percussion is intense, but not in yoour face. I am not one for dance music, so keep that in mind. You might hear this kind of CD at a cyberspace cafe! It is melodically interesting with many drone type signatures. I suggest listening to it in sections. This fits a kind of trip hop groove. Good spin!"
Surface 10 - self-titled (Cleopatra)

"There's an error in the above title listing,this isn't a various artist CD,nor it's artist name is Surface,Vol.10.It's simply Surface 10.Either way,it's a darn fine ambient/electronic effort that has NO vocals whatsoever,so it's completely instrumental.What drew me to this CD was their cut on Cleopatra's 3-CD box set 'Space Box-1970 And Beyond'(see my review of that release)and Surface 10 was one of the several artists that I did get in touch with after 'Space...' came out.Surface 10 is basically musician Dean DeBenedictis.One could say this is music of the future.The tracks that I seem to remember the most were the opener "Rim","Shapeless Friend" and the well-written "Light Without Reflection".Actually,the entire disc tends to gravitate one's mind as you can easily notice the indepth soundscape and the rich synth work.A nice find.DeBenedictis has another project out on CD,Cathexis-'Exempli Gratia'.Apparently,there was an episode of Star Trek named 'Cathexis'."
