nice price deal !!! man invented the machine and from its circuits music with soul was created. > soul machine< is about rediscovering the creative ritual between man and its machines. the man is helder russo and he will drive you through a futuristic motor city soundtrack with an atlantic feeling. > soul machine< is a kind of techno rebel record, in a sense that its not a product of the industry. its rather the soundtrack for an imaginary society, with soul as the unifying element between men and technology. the type of record that mojo could play in his fabled radio show and make people connect through music. in fact this is very much about connecting. with the machines, with sounds and with each other. its about the endless ritual of creation and the challenge to transcend time and leave an inspirational mark. helder russo did his job, now make sure you appreciate the many hidden layers of this special record.
