5.0 out of 5 stars The first 90's ambient classic, 26 Nov 2005
Confuseius (Virtual Space) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dreamfish (Audio CD)
Histories of ambient often start with Brian Eno's "Music for Airports". Up until the electronic music explosion of the early 90's, though, ambient was largely considered a "specialist" genre. With the rave generation's need for post-club "chill out" music, the ambient movement suddenly walked side-by-side with its hyperactive Roland TR909 driven cousin, house, and became a fertile breeding ground for some of the greatest talents of the time.
"Dreamfish", an exotic and richly textured album by Mixmaster Morris and Pete "Namlook" Kuhlman, both prolific in their own right, was the best ever selling album on the Rising High label, a label known mostly for its techno and early trance. A celebration of the sounds of ocean life, it's alleged that Morris and Namlook locked themselves in a studio, took a heap of LSD and stayed up until they had finished this masterpiece.
I'll always remember it best as being the ideal accompaniment to playing the first ever Tomb Raider game, with its glistening aquatic soundscapes and eerie, almost Kraftwerk-like distorted voices. But I have, most of all, been enormously surprised to find that my classical-loving mum is now a huge, recent convert to ambient music; rather like the rave-generation's chill-out seekers, she says that she loves its eerily calming vibes. If a piece of music can unite rave children and classical lovers into one camp, then it must be something truly special.
This is music to bathe in. Spend an hour listening to it in a flotation tank!
