Hmnnn. There's plenty of great stuff in this week so why are we bigging up a re-issue of Bristolian toper Matt Elliot's THIRD EYE FOUNDATION full lengthers (Ghost, You Guys Kill Me & Little Lost Soul)??? Because the man is a genius that's why. Who else has dissolved the ghosts of "trip-hop", drum 'n' bass & discordant space rock into an abrasive yet spiritual soundtrack to disturbed dreams & melancholic bliss? There's a darkly paranoid edge to this music, whilst being largely accessible, that renders your mood desolate yet yr ears are nailed to the speakers. The beats veer between languid & manic, lo-fi twisted D'n'B in parts, atmosphere drenched synth lines predominate, whilst the eerie effects & compulsive soundscapes he builds are hugely original & widescreen. You can even hear the influence he had over mid period Hood (his protégés) , as they took up a naive & spellbound approach to dub textures & progressive electronics. I can hear some of U-Ziq's inspired ghost train scattershot drill 'n' bass experiments on 'Ghost' for one. I could write all day about this music. It's Brilliant. It's also dangerous & fresh even though some is nearly 10 years old. You get 3 albums with a total of 12 extra tracks & mixes spread over the 3 discs for around a tenner. (I poo poo on Your Ju-Ju' isn't included) We heartily recommend you invest in a piece of electronic history here. x Brian Dormantgrouse
