V/A – Mindfield (Psychonavigation Records)

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Let’s play find the featured TPOLM’er!

“This new 15 track compilation (11 unreleased) is selected by Psychonavigation boss Keith Downey and features the finest Ambient/Electronica/Techno sounds from across the globe. The CD begins with an interlude from musician Buckminster Fuzeboard, giving us a taster of his new material. This is followed swiftly by a brand new track from San Francisco’s Jonah Sharp aka Spacetime Continuum with his spaced out Slo-House groove ‘Beryllium Sphere’ (Live Mix). Over the next six tracks the listener is brought on an audio journey of up-tempo tracks. Beginning with David Morley’s beautiful Biosphere-esque track Equator. Norken aka Lee Norris drops a glitch-house number which is then followed by a hero of the 90’s Ambient/Techno scene Robert Leiner, Leiner demonstrates his own unique take on Ambient/Techno and sounding very reminiscent of fellow Mindfield contributors, The Black Dog. Psychonavigation are honoured to include this seminal bands re-working of anodyne ‘Corrosion’. A 9 minute epic journey that takes the listener on a glorious Techno jaunt finishing up with blissed out Ambient strings.
Rising Irish artist Toby Kaar puts his own stamp on the already distinctive sound of Cork’s Zombie Computer. Kaar offers an incredible remix all dubbed out ala The Orb with a bass that’s guaranteed to shake your bassbins. Man of the moment Boxcutter, brings the diverse collection of tracks on Mindfield to it’s crescendo on Diagonal Reader VIP, which is a world away from his usual Dubstep tendancies and displays a more Aphex style bleepy workout to devastating effect.

The album then becomes an entirely more chilled affair starting off with the genius that is The Future Sound Of London. The legendary composers effortlessly blend harpsichord with gentle rolling beats. Next up Enrico Coniglio collobarates with Arve Henriksen whose stunning trumpet treatment is a chill-out classic in the making. Cuttooth then adds a spoken word introlude from his forthcoming debut album Elements which is swiftly followed by a new piece from Scanner aka Robin Rimbaud, delivering a cinematic masterpiece that is crying out to be used on a movie soundtrack. Australian artist Sense make a welcome return to showcase new material from his forthcoming long player on Psychonavigation Records. Another Psychonavigation new recruit Karol Gwóźdź debuts a stunning piano piece that Eno would fight to call his own..The compilation ends on a high with From The Room In the Tower – a wonderful bleepy synth affair from the godfather of Irish Electronica
Roger Doyle.”
