serie limitee records is celebrating its 3rd anniversary with its 8th release on its parent label. a good occasion to welcome pascal viscardi, a promising swiss talent supported by mike huckaby, who signs here his first track using the legendary sp1200...and that s a groovy one. also, first release ever for sixon, sean dixon s alter ego, the manager of final chapter delivers here a sexy hypnotic bomb. already featured on sl007, it s the second release on serie limitee for neuronphase. it seems like winter has been rude in estonia, which is good for us, as it gave the artist more time to produce some deep n raw music which perfectly fits the label. and to close this ep, a beautiful track produced by japanese producer tominori hosoya, aka tomi chair. a pure pearl of deepness which takes the listener to an imaginary dancefloor on a desert sand beach until the early morning. as always, expect a mysterious bonus track by the label s manager, monsieur cedric.
trip hop, a term tricky soon grew to despise, has become so omnipresent over the years, that its easy to forget how outside the mainstream it once was. trickys 1995 debut >maxinquaye< is one of those albums that brought the music to the forefront, entering the uk charts at #2 on its release despite a shocking lack of airplay, and ending up topping many, many year-end lists.
an essential album for any collection if ever there was one - pressed on 180 grams audiophile vinyl, comes in gatefold sleeve including insert.
