- Acid Sauna by The Doubtful Guest
6/10 Mingus Staff review, 14 February 2008Debut album from one Libby Floyd on Planet Mu as The Doubtful Guest entitled 'Acid Sauna'. Much has been made of her training as an opera singer but there's certainly no evidence of that here. Instead we are treated to eight tracks of the most curious of hybrids that includes a mish mash of genres and styles that summon up what can only be described as post-rave. The tempos are all over the shop, the programming somewhat off kilter in places; with acidic swirls, eurosynth textures, Amen breaks and techno bounce. The darkness that abounds reminds me of a DJ set somewhere around the graveyard shift where there's one or two casualties bouncing off the wall in a mentalist-had too much drugs kinda fashion. The dynamics are broken up with the introduction of the odd reggae influence (King Tubby and Horace Andy are referenced), hip hop/booty MC's, along with some ambient-ish washes and orchestral like arrangements. The key word here is 'mentalist', one that generally fits the Planet Mu aesthetic but, overall dissappoints the techno/electronica purist outlook of the towers office. No doubt this will sell by the bucket load to 'kids' that never experience the true rave vibe first time around. Sorry to sound patronsing, but this no holds barred approach to gabber/techno rave-by-numbers really does nothing for me.
