noisier, "drummier" product from the labs: sound table gradually builds in rhythm &
velocity, while pivoting around a brand new collaborative, "Trance Spirits", by Jeffrey Fayman, Steve Roach,
Robert Fripp & Momodou Kah: Shamanic-Tribal beats, Ambient sound-walls, a little Techno,
and a touch of Drum-n-Bass create an atmosphere of reverberating din...resonating
through yr headphones ! ~ :-p

Gene thanks for the feedback,
I think with all the build up to the release that there will be many expectations either met, exceeded or let down....in any case its another page in the book & one that I put everything into during its creation time. I agree that outside of the Fayman grooves that all the sounds could have easily been all created here, but in a sense they were since I took Fripp's loops and made them work for the project in a way that might not have otherwise been possible. I actually feel the same way on most collaborations; that I could conjure up all the elements but for a while now the collaborative element, either in person or virtual, has been compelling and, in this day and age, our way to have a tribal-experience occur within the music.
My favorite comment from you is -"but there's not much out there quite like this disc"- I feel more "off-the-map music" is needed. In any case. I will be releasing the fruits of all my live efforts this year in November with a 2 CD live release that is 100% solo and that goes lovingly for the throat..I know this one will be a perfect mixer for sonic cocktails, some really wicked electronic grooves, and brain soaking atmospheres. You should consider doing mp3 radio--seriously!

Till soon, all my best and thanks again.

Well done, bruh. Love Steve Tibbetts and Future Sound ... it's early in the day here, but I need to get me a sonic cocktail.

Nice mix, nice cover g.a.b. labber! Love the talvin, and fripp anywhere!

Again this provokes my usual react to your mixes, Gene, flummoxed but fascinated :)I hope that explains why I haven't got around to putting any comments against your back catalogue yet...And what's this, a (seemingly genuine?) comment from Mr Roach himself - well, I'm impressed...I'll be in touch soon.

ah yes, the growing complaint (you, Junior D, the world @ large) that the eclectic mixing genius of the labs suffers due to my antiquated, inveterate & unfashionable insistence on the use of the DEAD medium of cassettes. Oh well, TDK SA-X Gold 90's will do me for now (buy 'em by the case, online)... & they still sound great via the new SONY sports Walkman series. ~ :-p

Holy moly, thanks for the mix, bro! Very much enjoying it. This makes the King Crimson disc I sent you sound like a Pop group.
