Review:

I get by with a little help from my friends…

Domo Records’ label boss DJ Nadi has been in the game longer than anyone care to remember… And now finally he’s compiled his first compilation… The aptly named Posse, showcasing the best from and around the Domo crew… Looking at the tracklist reveals plenty of talented artists, and this compilation has been getting a lot of hype in progressive circles… Let’s find out what’s the appeal of the posse is… (Seinfeld pun intended…)

Let me take you thru the tracks…

#01: Insane Creation – Can Feel
Insane Creation is Dave Walitza and he has previously released tracks on Plusquam, Traktor Schalllabor, Starsound, Interzone and of course Domo Records… To be honest this is my first encounter with his music though – so I have no expectations whatsoever… The intro is long and subtle here… Tension is building slowly by the layers of percussion added – and after a couple of minutes we’ve reached a groovy, funk-a-delic state of wellbeing… Progressive trance when it’s best! Tribal drums, nice little reverbs and a smooth bassline… The breaks are very cool and overall this is a very sexy track with a crisp tenderness too it…

#02: Sonic Soul – Pornodelic (Sonnenvakuum Rmx)
“Please let me die for you! … Hi, how are you doing sweety? Come on in. I already prepared everything for you. Just the way you like it… It’s so hot tonight…Are you ready? Do you want me to play dead? Do you want me to die honey? Please, please let me die for you…” Sonic Soul are Daniel Mueller & Anders Nielsson which are completely unknown to me in this constellation… Sonnenvakuum however (here credited only as Daniel Mueller) shouldn’t need much introduction… One of the leading progressive acts from Switzerland with loads of releases under their belt… I haven’t heard the original track, so I can’t tell you what was changed… Anyway, this remix starts out kinda dreamy and clubby – before a hard-hitting, yet gentle bassline is introduced… At first the bassline seems oddly out of place, but as the track progresses it validates itself… The lyrics here are among the most disturbing I’ve heard in a long time… Forget about all the darkpsy artists’ flirt with the horned God – these are truly shocking lyrics… WTF!?... Anyway, they fit the track nicely and will for sure turn some heads this summer… Brilliant track!

#03: Ace Ventura & Intelabeam – Nasty Peach
Ace Ventura is an alias of Yoni Oshrat from Israel – one half of PsySex… I really liked his track on Set/4 – Essentials released by Iboga earlier this year… I also liked the track on the 2004 Alchemy Records compilation Doppler FX that Intelabeam (Dan Keinan) was involved with… These two guys brings us a hybrid track really – somewhere in between progressive and full-on… The best of both worlds really… The rich percussion and bassline from prog + the floating, melodic leads from full-on… Kinda like Tegma or 12 Moons… It’s a very nice and evolving track, but I could have wished for just a little more bite...

#04: Sensifeel – Available
Philippe Sancier from Paris released his debut album Vision Of Life on Domo Records last year… An album that contained a few good tracks – but unfortunately also some very forgettable tracks… Anyway, this track starts out kinda weird – but very cool… You don’t really know what’s going on here with that undecipherable voice-sample, but your curiosity is definitely awoken… Slowly, but steadily the track then evolves into a bouncy progressive number… It’s both driving and evolving, and eventually very nice… Not an instant smash, but still a nice little, solid tune…

#05: V-Tunes – 3rd Trial
V-Tunes are Sandro Kulka & Hans Muester from Switzerland… I really liked their trancy progressive tracks on VP Records’ Inspirazzia, Groove Zone Records’ Back To The Future and Plusquam Records’ Wireless… Top stuff from V-Tunes on all these compilations… And sure enough – this is top stuff too… A rich, funky-ass rhythm section mixed with a beautifully executed trance-side… Throw in a couple of phat reverbs, and we’ve got a winner in my book! … V-Tunes are really one of my fav’e progressive acts and I hope we get an album sooner or later… Perhaps this track is a little too well-polished at certain times, but generally I really like it… It’s very smooth and very sexy!

#06: Liquid Soul – Be Free
Nicola Capobianco debuted on the Plusquam compilation Wireless with a track from the deeper, darker realms of progressive trance… This track is a slow starter, but once the bassline is introduced it’s evident that we’re in the deep-prog territory again… Sweet! This is pretty hard-hitting and intoxicating - will work wonders on the dancefloor for sure… Check out the dreamy break drenched in reverb and horny samples… Nice one!

#07: Nasa – Someone To Watch Over Me
Mikkel Rasmussen from Denmark has been in the game since the minimal craze a couple of years ago… This track starts out pretty rough and minimal - but soon we’re introduced to some sharp electro-stabs alongside some filtered synth experiments… Add a subtle bassline and we’re getting somewhere… This is a highly experimental track – reminds me of Beat Bizarre actually… We get all kinds of influences here – from tribal to house, over electro and trance… Groovy hybrid trance!

#08: Sub6 feat. Michelle Adamson – 7th Son (Ticon Rmx)
Ticon (Fredrik Gilenholt & Filip Mĺrdberg) from Sweden are among my fav’e progressive producers… They have yet to let me down, so I’m sure this remix is in good hands… Sub6 are Ohad Aharoni & Golan Aharoni from Israel and they released their critically acclaimed debut album Who Needs Love Songs on HOM-Mega Productions in 2004… On that album was the track 7th Son featuring vocals from Michelle Adamson – and recently VP Records released the 7th Son Remixes album from where this Ticon remix is licensed… The track starts with floaty, beatless pads + the now famous vocals from the original… After about one minute Ticon reveals their presence with their phat, funky groove and trademark kick… This is soaked in Ticon and damn, I love Ticon… And Michelle’s beautiful vocals are the icing on the cake… Amazing track!

#09: Tomtron & Liesegang – Song For You
German producers DJ Tomtron & Timm Liesegang are partners in crime and have worked together on a number of productions, including their album Electric Tandem released by Domo Records in 2004… My knowledge about them limits itself to a couple of tracks though… Anyway, this is a pretty fresh tune – bubbling with joy, but at the same time with a lazy, monotonous feel to it… I dunno how the hell that is even possible!? Anyway, I do like the trancy elements here – and the climaxes are cool, but too short! I don’t really like the weird female samples either… But despite the flaws, this is still a pretty decent track!

DJ Nadi pulled it off… As always when you’re introduced to your friends’ mixed group of friends there are some people you click with immediately, some takes a little getting to know, whilst some you never really hit it off with… And that pretty much describes this compilation – and thankfully most of the tracks are in the first two categories… There are no bad tracks here, but the tracks I’ve indicated below stick out in my cool-book… This compilation doubles as both a great DJ tool and as a valuable living room entertainment… Nice!

To conclude this is a very fine, diverse compilation within progressive trance – compiled by the very competent DJ Nadi. I trust his taste and I’d recommend progressive trancers to do the same and give this a try… Fans of Iboga, Plusquam, Groove Zone and the likes should most definitely check this out… I’m pretty sure you’ll like it! … Enjoy!

Favourites: 1, 2(!), 5, 6, 8(!!)

The sample in track 2 - Sonic Soul – Pornodelic (Sonnenvakuum Rmx)
“Please let me die for you! … Hi, how are you doing sweety? Come on in. I already prepared everything for you. Just the way you like it… It’s so hot tonight…Are you ready? Do you want me to play dead? Do you want me to die honey? Please, please let me die for you…”

It really sounds like Juliet Lewis, but what film... Natural Born Killers??? Maybe?? Anyone???

Artist: Various Artists
Title: Posse
Label: DOMO
Format: CD (Digipack)
Released: June, 2005
Cover: http://217.160.138.169/pic_b/dom1cd006_b.jpg


Review:

One of the few Israeli labels releasing progressive psytrance is DOMO. Started in 2002, and with 2 albums (Sensifeels "Vision Of Life" and Tomtron & Timm Liesegangs "Electric Tandem") in the catalogue, as well as 3 compilations featuring a long list of well-known artists like BLT, Antix and FREq. 2005 has been a slow year after the splitting of DOMO and the sidelabel VP Records though – up till now, where their 4th compilation "Posse" has hit the market.


1. Insane Creation – Can Feel
The swiss act Insane Creation opens the compilation with "Can Feel". At first it seems a lot like the earlier material I've heard from him – very minimal, gritty tech-sounds and a deep, punching sound – this time spiced up with some tribal percussion. The track really opens up just before the 5-minute mark, with the appearance of some pads in the background followed by the hint of a slightly euro-trancey melody. It never gets too cheesy though, and works very well with the more night-oriented groove.

2. Sonic Soul – Pornodelica (Sonnenvakuum Remix)
Sonic Soul is a collaboration consisting of Daniel Mueller (Sonic Cube, Sonnenvakuum) and Anders Nilsson (Andromeda, Chromosome, Soul Surfer), and Daniel Muellers remix of "Pornodelica" is simply stunning. It's soft, pleasant and lush from the first second, and the incredibly sexy sample towards the middle of the track is a very nice touch. Great, uplifting morning anthem.

3. Ace Ventura & Intelabeam – Nasty Peach
Ace Ventura (Yoni Ahsrat from Psysex) and Intelabeam collaborate on "Nasty Peach" – a groovy track, quite far from their usual Israeli full on releases. The groove is very catchy, and the mix of both subtle and more straightforward melodies makes this a very pleasant surprise. Good track, although it could have used a bit more variation.

4. Sensifeel - Available
Sensifeel from France is one of the DOMO-regulars – with an appearance on a compilation as well as the album "Vision Of Life" released last year. "Available" is a quite standard progressive stomper, without many surprises – heavily tribal-influenced and with an ok bouncy groove, but never really gets interesting. I consider it a filler.

5. V-Tunes – 3rd Trial
Swiss duo V-Tunes appear with "3rd Trial" – not quite as housey as their other recent releases, but still more or less with the same V-Tunes sound. Nice atmosphere, heavily reverbed and with some quite catchy dancefriendly grooves . Good, but not really exceptional.

6. Liquid Soul – Be Free
Liquid Soul surprised many people when he came out of nothing and played at no less than VooV Experience last year. Following the successful liveact he has released music on labels like Plusquam and Iboga, and now also Domo. "Be Free" is a solid outdoor stomper with a quite hard edge, and a very driving groove. At the end it also gets quite uplifting, and this will surely work wonders on the festival dancefloors.

7. Nasa – Someone To Watch Over Me
"Someone To Watch Over Me" is not what I consider a typical Nasa-track. While a lot of his newest releases have been very pumping psychedelic progressive, this is a bit more laidback and definitely much more funky. It's quite tribal and my favourite part must be the short, lush pads, but generally I had a hard time "getting it". Not my favourite, but thumbs up for being quite different.

8. Sub6 – 7th Sun (Ticon Remix)
The Swedish progressive maestros Ticon is featured here with a remix of Sub6's "7th Son" – also found on the latest VP-release. The original is from Sub6s debut album from last year, "Who Needs Love Songs", and to be honest it wasn't exactly my favourite. Ticon does a very good job on the remix though – a marvellous multilayered Ticon-trademark morning bomb, and the vocal is certainly not an annoyance like in the original.

9. Tomtron & Liesegang – Song For You
Last track is also the slowest – the german DJ Tomtron teams up with Timm Liesegang like so many times before, and "Song For You" is a very positive surprise. It's only running at 127 BPM, but has a very german "psygressive" sound spiced up with some quite delicious vocals. Will probably not be appreciated by the vast majority, but I found it very refreshing.


Bottom line:

Despite a few fillers, the standout tracks are so good that I consider "Posse" is one of the best progressive compilations released this year – although not nearly as good as Tribal Visions "Lime Light". The sound is very "psychedelic" progressive – very dance friendly music perfect for the big outdoor environments, and although most of the tracks works very well at home, I find it more suitable as a tool for the progressive DJ's. I can imagine it being played intensely this summer.

Don't expect something groundbreaking, but if you're looking for dance friendly progressive music I doubt you'll be disappointed.


Favourites:

1, 2 (!!), 3, 6, 8 (!!), 9


Verdict:

8/10

It's time to review this fascinating release.
I like the warning in the back cover "Warning-contains extremely FAT SOUND".
'Posse' compilation include 9 groovy tracks selected carefully by the maestro - Nadi.

1.Insane Creation – Can feel

What an amazing opening for this CD. I don't know if Nadi could choise a better track for opening excpet this one...it's just perfect ! groovy bass line and fat kick with slow tempo...01:03...WOW ! everybody is must moving.
The trip start with awesome tune that make me fly to second track...

2.Sonic Soul – Pornodelica (sonnenvakuum rmx)

A delightful remix by sonnenvakuum. The kick here is less fat than the first tune but you can feel the power and the emotions that Danial put here. This is the kind of tunes which help you to get in the right atmosphere and mood.

3.Ace Ventura & Intelabeam – Nasty Peach

This cooperation really suprised me. I expect for totally different tune from this two guys but the result is excllent !!!
After one minutes of introduction the first kick enter and what a kick...amazing !
Yoni and Danny are originaly from the full-on genre and you can hear the influences of this style but it they mix it perfect with the proggy style.
Nice vocal and amazing groove here. I hope to hear more proggy tunes by this two talented guys.

4.Sensifeel – Available

One of the best progressive projects for me with a rarely tune ! attractive bass line without many effects. I like the process here, I feel the track always in progression and thats what make me concentrate on the track. One of the best progressive tunes I heard in the last years !

5.V tunes – 3rd Trial

I think the style of this track is deep-progressive. A lot of feelings and emotions following by pumping base line which left you just one opportunity - DANCE !
Actually this is the first tune I hear by this excllent project and I'm sure they will rock in the future.

6.Liquid Soul – Be Free

This one is more funky and refreshing ! I can easily connect with tunes like this one because it's intersting and groovy. Our body respond automaticlly for this tune and it's impossible to stop it.

7.Nasa – Someone to watch over me

I didn't connect this one like the others but it still very good track !
I found here one the most beatifull breakes I ever heard...I mean to the brake on 04:15-04:45...I just fall inlove with this style.

8.Sub 6 – 7th Son (Ticon rmx)

The best remix for 7th son (for me). Groove, Michele's beatifull voice and Ticon unique touch tuen this remix to a hit. You can dance it with big smile stretched on your face.

9.Tomtron & Liesegang – song for you

The last (but not least) track in this exllent compilation and what a lovely ending.
I don't know why, but this one is the most special track in compare to the other tracks, special atmosphere of chilling and relaxing with a lot of happy feelings and positive enrgies.

So thats it, my review for 'Posse' comp. is over. There is no words to pass you my feeling when I first heard this amazing compilation, so I guess you must buy it and feel it in your body
For me, it's one of the best progressive compilation on the last years and I can't wait to the upcomings released of Domo Records.
This is a highly recommended compilation so make sure you fet it before it will be too late !!

Ordered my copy just last monday. Hope to receive it soon. I listened to the samples and thought it was good. Judging by the reviews here it seems I've not made a bad decision buying this Based on the samples my faves are: 1,3(!),5,8           "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."

Hello Everybody.

Thanks a Million for the positive comments about the rmx

If anyone is in need of this sample, let me know sonnenvakuum@c-p-c.ch
