Entheogenic
Dialogue Of The Speakers
Chillcode (Germany)

Wow. In a word. I’d not heard of this being on the way, but just before their new album, Entheogenic have decided to hit us with something a bit special. On offer is what I guess you’d call an EP’s worth of new tunes, together with remixes of both new and old offerings. New track Aranyanyara kicks it all off, and it’s immediately one of their most accomplished tunes yet. Effortlessly fluid, with incredibly sweet lines and smooth bass. Their sound has matured and been held back from the previous albums, sounding light years ahead of even Spontaneous Illumination. A key selling point on this, and a real reason to check it out, is the presence of Ott, who remixes two tunes here: Timeless ESP and Ground Luminosity. Timeless ESP sounds the more like one of his own tunes, with deep and breathy bass, and an addictive slomo-dancey groove that suggests that the lad ain’t lost it with regard to his upcoming album. Ground Luminosity on the other hand, is nothing short of a masterpiece. Retaining the wide-eyed glean of the original, it’s been evolved like nothing else by Ott: spacier than anything on Blumenkraft, it’s an utter stormer. I’m lost for words (for once). Vibrasphere pops up to rework Pagan Dream Machine, a wonderful and floaty journey through a vast array of gorgeous soft sounds. Very nice indeed, notable from the way that acoustic instruments slide in and out alongside electronic elements. More evidence, not that it were needed, that Vibrasphere’s downtempo output is more than strong enough for an entire album. Youth’s remix of Without Thought has an amazing, unfolding quality to it. Staggering, with pokes of reggae singing over the top of a seemingly sentient bassline, that just moves and ambles along in an eerily awake way. At times it sounds more like Smith & Mighty, which is a good thing – proper fat dub, to rattle the blacked-out windows of your BMW. The original (un-remixed) version of Timeless ESP is vintage fluid Entheogenic, with particularly nice acidy lines and curdling, squishy bass while Without Thought is sheer class… think a slowed-down squarepusher, with that sort of spontaneous free jazz vibe going on, while crystalline trance lines run up and down and around the outside. Really nice – this is likely to get caned at daytime sets in chillouts at the festivals this summer, and is as close to the mythical “psy-breaks” as anything else I’ve heard this year. Also worthy of insane amounts of play is Abakus’ remix of Aranyanyara, which is one of the bravest and most original remixes I think I’ve ever heard. He takes the original, and still keeps some of its groove and vibe, despite layering it over an incredibly sweet and well-produced 125BPM 4/4 summertime housey pattern that’s deliciously akin to Billie Jean. The breakdown is pure downtempo psy, and when it crunches back into the 4-4, it’s all about the way the two styles shouldn’t-work-but-do that makes it so damn appealing. Finally Shulman takes on Spaced, going very far-out with a sort of jean-michelle-jarre-meets-roni-size vibe going on – which is as delightful and as perplexing as that description suggests. All in all this is utter, utter class – I don’t recall such a varied and accomplished collection as this, and the combination of the diverse and eclectic remixes plus the decent new tunes make this one hell of a chillout album, the best released since Tripswitch’s Circuit Breaker.

Well, Michael Jackson's "Bille Jean" is 120 bpm, according to my co-worker who was a disco DJ in the 70's and 80's. Guess you'd just adjust the pitch control slightly for a floor killing, moonwalking Enthenogenic <-> Michael Jackson beatmix !!! ;P

After hearing the new Shpongle (???) , I really am looking forward to this!

you're forgetting minilogue and bushwacka's remixes of billie jean (both 128 bpm)
so that megamix could last about 40 minutes

That isn't a review, it's a promo speech.

Wow - is the right word.
This is a powerhouse of the first quality.
Haven't had the pleasure to listen to such quality in a long time.
All tracks are pime, and the remixes are outstanding.


My recommendation: Get it!

Review for the new Entheogenic album

An excellent piece of work from the established psychedelic downbeat act Entheogenic.
9 quality ambient chill-out tracks from an act who opens with music paths for peace in mind and soul.
Artists like Youth,Shulman,Ott,Vibrashere and Abakus with their 'touch' put this album to the top of the ambient releases from this summer.An album that will be replayed more times from the first listen.
Quality music from a quality record label and quick established in the ambient chill-out scene.
Excellent releases from the beginning first Matenda then Galaxy now Entheogenic.We wait for your next quality release to make our ears smile.
All tracks are suitable for home listening but also they can be used in an ambient dj set.propably if some of you participate in a summer festival for sure you will hear these sounds
I cannot chose any of the tracks.all of them are my favorites and i enjoy these sounds a lot .
When you see that names like Youth Abakus Vibrashere Shulman Ott chose this act for make a remix you cannot say anyhing.you let the music speak to your ears and help you travel into other dimensions where peace and love rules
no words only music.
Many thanks to acts like entheogenic that making our ears happy
Good luck both to entheogenic and to chillcode record label
all best

Reading this reminds me of the times I've missed the Grand Prix and then the news comes on with the results. You want to watch because you're dying to know what happened in your absence. But it's an inward battle - really you need media blackout until you get a chance to see the repeat.

I can't wait to order this 3;~

hehe... I will make this as painless as possible for you.

This is one of the few releases, that put a big smile back on my face.
It is worth the short wait, I, will play this one, for a veeery long time.

WHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOWWW, this is what Psy music is about.

Ott's sound is so warm that i feel like crying out of happiness ... Vibrasphere deliver a solid and irresistible remix, with a lot of groove and the same goes for Abakus. Entheogenic keep us floating with their heart-breaking ambient melodies... I'm just going to pray that they are also going to release a full-length album soon... ... 10/10...

Now that i have been praying for a new Ott album for some time now , i'll add a new Entheogenic album to my prayers, hopefully they will hear me ...

Thank you Chillcode rec.
