8/10 Mike 23 October 2013

We’ve got a couple of reissues in from new age pioneer Laraaji this week, and the one which has landed on the review pile is this cosmic synthdrone bliss-out ‘Essence/Universe’, which consists of two epic half hour peace drones full of shimmering tone clusters and blurred smooth synth dreaminess. There’s a sticker on the front that compares it to Popol Vuh’s Werner Herzog soundtracks so you know where you’re at really, ethereal healing synth drone action with a distant, epic feel.

It’s very new agey and it’s trancing out everyone in the office with its slow-drifting bong vibes, Ian’s saying it sounds like some kind of self-help hypnotherapy tape where someone recites calming mantras at you while you sleep in the hot tub or whatever in an attempt to make yourself live longer. Basically if you like lengthy cosmic drones you’ll love this.
