Possibly the very definition of lushness, this is a fantastic downtempo classic from the fantastic album from Gus Gus, Gus Gus & T-World. While their output is generally known for its eccentric funky house compositions and off the wall trip-hop, this is an atmospheric, down blanket of awesome deep houseness. Plus, it has bongo’s, a long overlooked companion to a cracking house tune. Be honest now, bongo’s make everything better.
This album was brought to my attention from the Anthem track being included on the Pi soundtrack. I was really expecting alot from this album and when I finally got the chance to listen to it, I was happy to find it lived up to expectations. All the tracks on this album hit me in the right spot but it’s the “classic” sounding songs like Anthem, Northern Lights, Purple, and Esja that really blew me away. Ever since I heard it, I’ve always considered these songs to be of the highest caliber of techno, and hearing them dropped in a mix or at a gathering always puts a smile on my face. Emotional techno for your soul.
