Ethnic drums give way to more electronic sounds and then the drum machine crashes in. We then move into a dreamy ambient mix. Pumping tacks and jangling percussion will keep you moving all night long to this creative swirl of dance styles. There are some beautiful sounds here that you can just let trickle through your brain. Why not let the pulse and vibes consume you and carry you off to another world as you meditate on these sounds? And if you listen carefully and you will hear pop and classical influences come through underneath the dance beat. Personally, I felt the few samples of prayers and preaching that appeared on one track distracted a little from the overall effect. One or two were fine, but I wondered if some didn't sound a bit clich├ęd and judgmental. But the screeches and cries, vocals and effects on the other tracks more than made up for this. Brilliant.
