After being really bored lately by the repetitive full on and progressive trance music, I started to “squint” towards the Australians, knowing their notion of trance music is different than ours, and that they have not forgotten the meaning of the word “psychedelic”.

So I ordered this album (and a few more) from an Australian online shop, and it is definitely an excellent purchase.

1. Andromeda
2. Phoenix
3. Axiom
4. Lyra
5. Propitious Beat
6. Legomen
7. Prism
8. Xfire
9.Zero Point

Terra Nine is a one man project, Michael Westcot, who is quite active in the Australian scene since 97. His music is more tech trance orientated, with perceivable touches of drum n’ bass and a very large dosage of psychadelia. He also uses violin and piano as tools. The beginning of the album is largely influenced by tech trance sounds. The bpm in this album ranges from 140 to 145 and 150. The first 3 tracks are the hardest (especially the second). Hard baseline, with lots of d&b kicks (this explains the high 150bpm). The second (Axiom) track is actually the most famous one. It has also later on been remixed by a number of artists (such as Rip Van Hippy) in the remix c.d called “Axiom – the remixes”. Very distinguished d&b kicks and a lovely female voice in the background. In most of his tracks you will find a long dubby introduction, with background kicks and then after a while the point of the track comes in. These long atmospheric introductions get you into a hypnotizing state together with the looping sounds and melodies at time. The beauty of this album is that no track is predictable. They are all special, different than each other and definitely not the usual trance music you get to hear these days. Also, a very important point is that the kicks are being heard behind the sounds, and not taking over and controlling the whole tracks.

To sum it up, a very recommended c.d if you’re looking for the unusual sounds. I don’t have much info about when this has been released, except that it was in 2002.
I also am sad to see such good artists are not getting enough appreciation.
