The review:

Alright, another new compilation on Iboga Mexico. After the great Tabernanthe 2 compilation my expectations were quite high, so I decided to get this one as well. And I'm glad I did. It's totally in the same league. This time compiled by Odiseo & DJ Vedante. So, without further ado, here goes.

Track 1: Odiseo vs. Gandulk open up with some atmospherics. Bassdrum and percussions follow, coupled with some snares. A sunny vibe is created throughout this track, which has a good melodious undertone and gets us into the groove really well. Lovin' it. A good track.

Track 2: Starts off immediately with kick, hihats, snares, the works. Nice opening, it's got a really funky feel to it, so the name of the song rings true. Gets a little heavier when the bassline truly sets in. In sound it has the same sunny kinda vibes as track 1. Strange really, for a compilation released in december... This track is a bit tighter than track 1 especially on the snares and percussion wise. It proceeds quite well, lots of percussion effects near the end. Yeah, a good track as well.

Track 3: A nice proggy track again. In sound it's a bit like stuff from acts like Ski-Fi or FM maybe. Nice stuff here, although it maybe a little repetitive for someone else's tastes. I find it to be pleasant and groovy, so it takes me where I want to go at least. A good track once again.

Track 4: Next up a remix from a BBE track. Flowjob did a great job here, making the track sound a little lighter and overall it has a happier feeling to it. A great remix to an already great original. The sounds are crystal clear and you can clearly hear the Flowjob influence in this one. Stellar stuff.

Track 5: Symphonix are up next and you know what to expect. It's standard Symphonix stuff, so german psyprog all the way. Nice work on the bass and kick and overall a good groove and great drive to it. Like their album on Blue Tunes? You'll like this, there's no more to it. Good stuff.

Track 6: Liquid Ace (Liquid Soul & Ace Ventura) takes the time to build the song up and finishes overall in a great groove, lush pads behind it all, a sample about meditation in it, hypnotic to the core. Great stuff.

Track 7: Starts off with some pads, takes its time to build up and ends up sounding deeeelicious indeed. A progressive stormer, this is a track I can listen to again and again without getting bored. The atmosphere in this one is great.

Track 8: More funky stuff this time as Cafu teams up with Dualism & D-Fusion. It turns out to have a very melodic core underneath the phat funkyness. Near the end it totally turns loose and it's sure to bring a smile to any progressive fan. Anyway, great work on this song.

Track 9: Flowjob finish it all off with another nice light song with lots of funk. Bang bang the boogie as the sample says, and if you liked previous Flowjob songs you'll like this, although it's not as deep as some of their older work I can tell you. All in all, to me this sounds great and it's a good finisher for this superb compilation.

Conclusion: Well, stellar stuff. It's all I can say. This easily deserves a 9/10 in my book. I can't name one track on this I didn't like or liked less. The build up in the compilation is good too, coming to a climax with track 8's lush finale and bringing you to back down the ground with the funky and melodious Flowjob finisher. Iboga Mexico's second release is as good as the first one. Keep bringing it like this!!

Yeah, I'm suprised, have none of you picked this one up?? Iboga releases have a lot of comments most of the time... why should this be different? It's a great compilation.           "Subconscious unravels at the point of death, and all time it has known erupts into a moment. As death extinguishes us, so we become it."
