ARTIST V/A - VARIOUS ARTISTS
LABEL Invisible Inc (INVINC 20)
RELEASE DATE 05/2022
MEDIA FORMAT 2LP
Limited repress with re-imagined sleeve art of this 2018 killer compilation!
The astonishingly diverse palette of styles comes courtesy of renowned ambient innnovator Laraaji, multi-Grammy Award-winning producer and ground-breaking synthesist and sound engineer Malcolm Cecil (in his Tonto’s Expanding Head Band guise), Italian ‘Cosmic Disco’ pioneer and DJ Daniele Baldelli, avantgarde experimentalist K. Leimer, New York electro synth-pop legend Richard Bone (all five of whom have been active since the ’70s or earlier) as well as dub techno locked groove aficionados log(m), West Coast psychedelic electronics maestro Secret Circuit, Berlin-based synthesist/composer Eva Geist plus a veritable “who’s who” of some of the finest producers of ambient, dub, downtempo, leftfield and experimental electronica ever collected together on a single piece of wax (or two in this case): Baikonour, Sordid Sound System, Causa, Ulysses, Epsilove, Luv*Jam, Higamos Hogamos, Randweg, Bronze Savage, Komodo Kolektif, Bal5000 and Natural Sugars.
Eliciting a distinct sense of musical other-worldlyness, the title is perhaps more than just a nod to Philip K Dick’s “Blade Runner” and hints at the idea that if these transmissions ‘from beyond’ are ‘lost’ they may in essence be more rooted in our distant past than in some science fiction future.
Putting needle to record, ancient rhythms and hypnotic mantras merge with synthesized soundscapes and deep basslines to propel us upward from the primeval forest floor into steady orbit before engaging the hyperspace drive on a trajectory deep into the Great Mystery.
