Electronica goes to Machu Pichu
Enrique Torres | San Diegotitlan, Califas | 05/13/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a mood album filled with various electronic styles including drum & bass, trip hop, trance and dub. The interesting aspect of this CD is the concept of mixing "ethnic" sounds that give it a primitive meets electronica sound. Very trippy stuff that will have you feeling very relaxed as though you were among the clouds in the higher elevations of Machu Pichu. The music is inspired by samples taken from an Incan music recorded album by Inti Raymi a UK band. Lots of pan flutes mixed with all the above electronic elements including vibes, nature sounds and haunting melodies. The CD plays heavily on the dub technique. This a compilation of groups including such heavies as "Trans-Global Underground"and "Fun-Da-Mental" among others. Sometimes the sound is more Eastern sounding as with "TGU's" "Cazares Mix" a sort of Hare Krisna goes to a rave at the Festival of the Sun. "F-D-M" has "Sufi Inca" that has tablas mixed in with flutes, an odd mixture but an interesting musical stew. This is kick back music to listen to when you want to feel in an other worldly mood or mute the sound while watching the Discovery Channel. It could be the soundtrack for an Incan expedition. Just a side note, the cover has an artists rendering of the famous Aztec Sun Calendar, by the way Aztecs are not Incas, they were two different civilizations."

"I have had this CD since I started listening to techno/electronic music (about 4 years ago) and have not found a match for it quality-wise to this date. It is more thought provoking and emotionally stirring than any other CD I own; listening to it is an experience in itself!"
