8/10 Ant Staff review, 11 January 2018
Following up on the revelatory ‘In Alpha Mood’ LP on Finders Keepers, Dead-Cert delve into the archives of Ami Shavit, who operated out of Tel Aviv during the 70s. ‘Neural Oscillations and Alpha Rhythms’ has been on repeat at my place - an awesome, exotic, mystical, cosmic synth record, something like a Persian Tangerine Dream meets a more proggy J.D. Emmanuel. His location/culture/heritage gives his music a truly unique flavour that just stands out from the swathes of archival synthesizer music reissues. Despite the fact that these are essentially raw studio recordings of him perfecting his style, ‘Neural Oscillations’ sounds like a fully accomplished, complete work to these ears, and is worth the cost of admission alone. ‘Alpha Rhythms 1’ sounds like an electrified ancient traditional instrument performing hypnosis, while the synthesized liquid sounds of ‘Alpha Rhythms 2’ delicately float like bubbles dancing to the surface of a moonlit desert lake.
