To categorize this heady, experimental album as a latin jazz-fusion record that flirts with electronica, or exactly the opposite remains a riddle. Masterminded by two jazzheads, somewhere between Santiago de Chile and Cologne, Germany,"Inner Space-Outer Space" is a noteworthy musical combination where animaginary Kraftwerk cover band would perform Sancho Panchez' repertoire. The display of musicianship is phenomenal, owing as much to live instrumentation as programming, and offers a complete departure from the nu-jazz and broken beat sounds of other outfits like Jazzanova, Beanfield and Les Gammas. With all its bold complexities and explorations of new musical territories , the album remains fully accessible and highly enjoyable, with or without a space suit

Whereas Midnight Sounds had a latin feel, this release is influenced by freeform jazz. It works well in places, particularly in the percussion driven title track, but on other songs the techniques can sometimes seem a little extreme and startling. All in all a quality release with enough good moments to counteract the bad ones. Still prefer Midnight Sounds though.

the ever brilliant atom heart together with the burnt fried man, going further into that weird
electronic jazz hybrid than ever before
the single inner spacesuit is a classic
and this is prime ninja stuff
guaranteed dancefloor poison!
