Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To is one of the most individual sounding downtempo electronica albums that I have heard in the last few years. Eitan Reiter created a dazzling debut album which is also the first physical release of Aleph Zero records in 2010. There is nothing even slightly ordinary about this album. Interesting, complex and quirky, it is a dream park that lets us ride on colorful waves of strange beautiful music. Though it's possible to hear that among other things Eitan is influenced by the great music of Simon Posford, Ott, Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd, the whole album is completely original, fresh and Eitan's unique touch and creativity are shining gracefully in all the tracks. Innovation and diversity are bursting from this album. It is tranquil yet groovy, delicately and cleverly psychedelic.

Some of you probably know Eitan's previous works. He is half of the known psytrance duo LOUD, half of the electronica, ambient pop duo Unoccupied and he's also releasing techno/house/minimal under his own name, but I think that in the process of creating Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To, Eitan allowed himself to really explore different parts of his mind and soul and let them come out without any inhibitions, and the outcome is fantastic and intimate. There is a lot of emotion in all the tracks and Eitan's excellent production skills intensify it. He navigated through all kinds of different styles and moods and I was enchanted already from the first track and stayed enchanted until the end of the album. I discovered more beauty and depths each time I listened to it and I still keep discovering (a usual thing when listening to a good album). I admit that though it's very captivating already from the first time you listen, this album is not easily digested, but that's normal when you are listening to something that's a bit different. So, the best way to approach this album is with an open mind and without any expectations to hear something specific. Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To is moving, unexpected and very dynamic, a lush crystal clear sonic fabric that provides a wonderful journey into beautifully woven and designed territories of ambient, dreamy trip hop, psychill, electronica, lounge and idm. We can always rely on Aleph Zero to release something special and they did it once again. I must say that the artwork is just as quirky and bizarre as the music, and I went for the CD + poster deal which Aleph Zero offer because it's simply worth it.

Recomendation: In our times, when a lot of recycled music is getting released, Eitan manages to deliver something else, something refreshing that touches the heart deeply and with some great sound manipulations really affects the mind as well. One of the best releases in 2010. Highly recommended!

Electronic chillout and intimate ambient exploration. This album is a musical journey that progresses unself-consciously through some very personal musical territory, full of pleasant wonderment and unfettered by genre distinctions. Smooth beatless passages of synthetic drones morph gradually into lazy downtempo where the beats are muted yet crisp, pleasantly individual affairs. Rich sonorous flutes overlay sharp digital textures; dreamy guitars contrast musing speech samples; violin, piano and various voices broadening the sound palette. There is something of a retro feel among all the modernity here - I'm reminded of some of the better instrumental concept albums of the seventies with perhaps less emphasis on melodic themes and a greater opening for ambient space.

Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To has a warm sense of ingenuous tranquillity running throughout. A relaxing exploratory nature with the unusual distinction of appearing un-influenced by trends within the field and the need to draw a specific audience. Eitan Reiter doesn't come across as trying to sound like anyone else or wanting to fill a specific niche. This album quickly establishes itself as a blissfully idiosyncratic meander through the moods and sensations of the artist, shifting form and character as the whim arises.

Steeped in warm earthy tones Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To is a jewel case presentation with three panel fold-out insert. The various sections feature some hand drawn artwork as unique and unusual as the music itself: a leaf shrouded figure perched on the bough of a bare tree, the tree itself re-appearing silhouetted or overlaid upon textured surfaces. There is a tracklist on the rear and within, a third extended version showing writing and performance credits. Website details and contact information are present for both label and artist. Eitan provides a paragraph of explanation revealing the deeply personal approach taken in the telling of this story. There is a generous pair of paragraphs given over to relevant thanks - one from the artist, one from Aleph Zero.

Although Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To is presented as Eitan Reiter's debut solo album, it is by no means his first release: he recently enjoyed being half of Unoccupied for the album Everyday Life as well as having released a range or dance music under his own name, and psytrance under the LOUD project. This twelve track disc is delivered via Aleph Zero and shows that the label is happy to foster creative music that sits beyond the usual spectrum.

If you appreciate music that reveals a personality rather than conforming to a stylistic standard then this might well be for you. Meandering ambient downtempo for lovers of musical narrative that enjoy being transported. Try out the E-Flier if you want to get the flavour and read more info before purchase or else have a listen to the samples at Aleph Zero.

nice review like always natan- don't be lazy- translate it!

this is a great album on the one hand one might say its pretty simple and dosn't break new grounds. on the other hand its so full of music and feel and the way all the different styles melt together perfectly just makes it one of the best downtempo albums for a while now. Eitan is very talented everything he does in all those different directions is always like a breath of fresh air. 9/10

Oh... and 15/10 for the cover.

Sadly that applies to most well produced pieces nowadays. I do agree on all Bodhisattva states.

Eitan Reiter Smile EP (AlephZD05)

Release Date: Jan. 31, 2010

Release page:

As a complementary to Eitan Reiter's highly praised debut album, Places I Miss That I Haven't Been To, Aleph Zero is pleased to offer the Smile EP.

We gave the irresistible original, an electronic anthem to open any day with a smile, to four different masters from different realms of electronic music. J.Viewz enriched the original with his typical happy organic jazzy flavored atmosphere and irresistible breaky grooves. Bluetech, the master of chilled electronica, smoothed it with his delicate dreamy electronic sound. Peter Horresvorts gave the original his trademark twist, turning it upside down into a hypnotic funky tribal Deep House mover that has deep written all over it. Diverse beats manipulator Perfect Stranger created a real floor shaker that has the dancefloor screaming.
As a bonus, Eitan added the broken beat sexy groovy Summer in Tel Aviv.

Eitan Reiter is a multitalented genre-crossing musician and producer that has caused excitement and raised interest with everything he dabbed his hands into, be it chillout & downtempo electronica, releasing under his own name and as half of the Unoccupied duo, or dance music releasing techno/house/minimal under his own name, and psytrance as part of the LOUD duo.

Track list:
1. Smile
2. Smile (J.Viewz remix)
3. Smile (Bluetech remix)
4. Smile (Peter Horrevorts remix)
5. Smile (Perfect Stranger remix)
6. Summer in Tel Aviv
