Compiled by Dj Butterfly, Mastering by Triptych

Wizzy Noise (Uriel & Micky Noise/Greece) offers here an inspired tune with nice floating feeling mixed with uplifting tones for an effective full on stuff on the dancefllor, i must admit i’m positivly estonished with this band that grow up in my regard.

Tetraktys (Vincent Courcot/France) goes on with his new style introduced in his debut album, i mean here still dark but less kickin & more muffled. The artist now focuses mainly on the global harmony & atmosphere (enigmatic for this one) instead of searching new techy-proggy tricks, Insomny is a new example of all numerous faces of Tetraktys.

Skulptor (Lipe Forbes) vs Spectral Skunk (Beto Pampoch/Brazil) for Antoclockwise gives us at first kinda train whistling melody which evolves with nice funny & hopping tones, here you don’t see time.

Oracle (Lipe Forbes + Fritz Amaral/Brazil) got right from the start some samples in french which are complicated to catch so twisted they are but funny to listen, i although get ‘c’est parti !’ (let’s go !). These barazilian dudes prooves us one more time if necesary their latin origin with a typical ‘poco loco’ spirit, based on lots of echoes-reverb puts on, the old to me, lead & then a simili phonering melody.

C.P.U (Samy Guediche/Spain) has produced his usual full on thing despite some percussions in the intro & scattered all along the tune, his indentifiable squeaking lead appears quickly. I must notice some efforts put on the tones , some of are changing from the usual CPU ones but the global result still sounds basic full on to me.

Psychaos (Joti Sidhu/UK)enters in a darker sphere of the full on production coppled with kickin rythmic, some 303 lines conferring more power to the track & an old school taste, the whole thing embellished by some hypnotizin tones in the background.

Third track from Lipe Forbes, in solo this time & unfortunatly the weakest oof the Three, too much pachydermic for me.

Hopefully Polaris (Arnaud Stengel/France) will look after your eardrums with his melodic & slightly metallic full on with a hint of funk musical potion.

Signs (J.B Laffite aka Dj Pulsate/France) takes you to the Pacific ocean, for an exotic Hawaïan (hawaïan guitar sample break) & Maori (percussions) tasty chill out stuff, take advantage of the free journey offers to you by Signs as we (in europe) are now in middle summer.

Best moments :1,2,3,4,8,9

8/10 Good start with this first release for this new french label city atlantic ‘La Rochelle’ based, long life to Mandala records.

haven't had the chance to get a copy but from the short samples I've heard on the net I must say the SKULPTOR traxx sounded really amazing !!!

Good job and all the best for your first release !
