The first thing that hits you when you play this CD is the fact that Pete Namlook has no part in it, and without his style, this album is noticeably different from the others. This is good in the sense that the tracks differ from what might be expected, but the inconsistencies between the tracks are quite noticeable. Compilation 1 kicks off with "Never Mind", a formulaic 909/analogue thumper that (like most Fax dance produce) works for a few listens and is then usually forgotten. "Elephant Overload" is another distorted hardcore techno track; nothing outstanding. Both "Lost In Motion" and "Dune (Of Love)" are pleasant but fairly run-of-the-mill trance/progressive tracks…

Four volumes from Rather Interesting label.
Real Intelligence IV (2002). On this compilation you will find the 1999-2001 highlights, which surprised and inspired listeners during the last couple of years: Dos Tracks, Erik Satin, Los Samplers, XXX, Bund Deutscher Programmierer, Midisport, The Disk Orchestra and the Roger Tubesound Orchestra. As if this was not enough, rather interesting decided to include 4 previously unreleased bonus titles which make this compilation a 'must have' for all those who like the sound and of 'R.I.'. The bonus titles 'space bossa', 'mambo si, trabajo no!', 'affirmative' and 'hypnotize' perfectly complete this selection of 'r.i.' classics, ranging from Latino influenced compositions via abstract funkiness to electro…

EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 753 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 332 MB | Covers - 88 MB
Genre: Dub, Downtempo, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Moonshine Music

United State Of Ambience (1994). The first of the United State of Ambience series probably features a more stylistically diverse collection of tracks than either of the follow-ups. In fact, at many times the collection seems to veer off into the worldbeat genre, where sampled chants and hand drums take the place of synth pads and computerized sound effects. Other times, it hovers perilously close to new age. The compilation was released in 1994, when electronica was still a very new genre - and it shows. Both the Eastern-influenced "Goa: Season of the Monsoon" and the uplifting "Creation" are underscored with fairly up-tempo drum tracks - something you would never find on a more recent ambient work…

Genre: Electronic, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Sony Music Japan

Here was displayed for the first time the many variants of IDM, showing that there was much more to Ambient than just atmospheric instrumental tracks: from the deep moody electronica of David Morley or Biosphere, to the dub-influenced collages of the Orb's remix of Electrotete, and the Detroit techno of Model 500 at its most subtle, every track here is a gem, making it an unrivalled release.
