Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Austrian DJ Peter Kruder is best known for his production work with studio partner Richard Dorfmeister. Together they have turned tracks by Madonna, Depeche Mode, Roni Size and Bomb The Bass into stoned chill-out classics. Peace Orchestra is Kruder's first full-length solo exploration of this trademark dubby, down-tempo sound. Each track is a delicately crafted mixture of jazzy percussion, deep bass, jaunty horns and mellow ambience. "Double Drums" drops a funky trumpet sample over a chunky, danceable groove, while "Domination" is a sleepy mix of wind noises, ambient melodies and jazzy breakbeats. Some tracks--such as the live breakbeat jam "Mesiter Petz"--is Kruder's take on pitch shuffling, bossa beats in revolt against exotic instrumentation and subtle synth melodies. Peace Orchestrahas a great dimly lit, late night vibe that makes it a near-perfect chill out album. Matt Anniss

First the background:
The Peace Corporation is Peter Kruder, who is one half of Kruder & Dorfmeister. And K&D are the defining act in style of music that is both overlooked and extremely hard to categorise.
Its jazz, its trance, is wallpaper, its lounge music, its chill-out music.
It is all of these and none of them. The best description I have seen so far is "Chill out music for the switched on".
A few more artists in this genre: Thievery Corporation, Fila Brazilia, Daniel Ibbotson. Get surfing :o)
So, onto this recording:
I would try to avoid superlatives, but im afraid it is not possible. This CD is as good as it gets.
More laid back than K&D, more trancey, more crisp. The tracks are varied and distinct, and hopelessly addictive.
This CD is not a sound track for a dark french thriller, but it could be.
It wont change your life either, but it DOES belong in your CD collection, along with...

Excellent Album. This is an intellegent piece of mastery and must be added to any self respecting individuals record collection. Superb basslines, funky vibes and interesting compositions make this a world beater. Id also recommend the remixed version of this album (Reset: Remixes), which is equally superb.

Fantastically chilled effort. Highly recommended. A good introduction or continuation for anyone interested in K&D. Late night music for insomniacs who love a bit of downbeat jazz

Like a perfect pussycat slinking round your ankles! Buy it - its just lovely. Play it when your freinds are round and if they don't already own it they will be demading to know what it is. Its the perfect soundscape for dinner, chilling or a rainy Sunday afternoon. I can't praise this CD highly enough.

When I got this I just put it with the others in a pile as I had bought it on a vague recommendation, but I'm glad I got round to putting it on as I would have missed an absolute feast otherwise.
Great cover too.
