The Alchemy Album Project
by d.j. Dark Angel (Inna?Turtle)
mate Ali gave me a copy of Alchemy at Inna?Turtle, my Psy-Trance
afternoon in Camden, a couple of weeks ago... I knew it was coming, and
was looking forward to it.
So, it was on the same Saturday night that I got it on the system. To be honest, it exceeded my expectations. I just had to listen to it 2 or 3 times ;-). It's obviously a work of love - so much work has gone into it - have you seen the people involved? It's as you'd expect from such people as Lee Harris, Drezz, Simon Posford, Raja Ram,.... Oh heck, have a look at the artists yourselves!
The entire album puts you in the place we all love to be - away from the bullshit of conventional life. It starts perfectly chilled, dubby even, and by way of a meandering Howard Marks and the Mystery School Players, arrives at Shpongle. Loads of flute work morphs seemlessly into a kicking Psy-Trance Nervasystem & Aether tune. Dammit, it's so good I've already started playing it at gigs!
What more do you want to know? The production
is great. Ali's done a great job with the artwork, and I even got a free packet
of specially produced ciggie papers to go with the album. It seems a shame
to use them, so I won't. I'll keep them as a souvenir instead ;-).
