With the 6th installment of the original trilogy Shpongle shows they still got the mojo. Less generic samples and sounds, a more solid bass foundation and overal crazy fun production and some daring takes in genre mixes while staying true to the Shpongolese spirit. Darn fun!
I love Solar Fields. Especially his spaced out ambient-soundscape paintings of the universe I have had the honor to see live a few times. But there is another side to this guy; the boom-tsjk-boom of psytrance. I like that, but when I'm at a festival, not at home with my headphones.
Making a "Part 2" of any successful record is a bad idea to begin with. It is no different for our Infected Mushrooms, where 'Part 1' was an original mix of two sides of the same coin, this one reeks of cashing the commercial market. Quasi trance lovesongs 'Feat. Sasha Grey'? C'moooon.
Dubbed 'the soundtrack of a coffee-bar in outer space', Salvage sets the standard for psychedelic chill-out with a jazzy feel.
