When faced with the prospect of investing in new technology, I personally like to use a term which I call: - ‘the microwave approach’. Some readers may or may not remember when this modern understated essential first came to being, but I still have a clear memory of how manufacturers and the advertising media took a firm hold of this great scientific invention – promising consumers succulent roasts in under an hour, deliciously golden baked breads in less than twenty minutes, and if all that weren’t convincing enough - it could even reheat things if required. It didn’t take long for consumers to realise that they had been possibly ‘fooled’, but it sure did a great job reheating – and so this amazing piece of kit was set to revolutionise the way we live well beyond the scope of all imaginable conceivability.
For those who like to search and dig through the massive world of Dance music compilations, there are a number of consecutive descriptive terms that seem to continuously tip-toe their way around: classics, hidden gems, essentials, and dinosaurs, to name a few. A recent addition to my expanding collection came in the shape of this one: - Chilled Euphoria mixed by Red Jerry - a rare bespoken production that was well ahead of its time both back then and even now. Primarily aimed at listeners who occasionally like to take a walk on the softer side of Trance’s mystical landscapes, Chilled Euphoria’s deep cleansing and masterfully controlled nostalgic proportions will lift, cuddle and envelop most (if not all) of today’s fussiest of headphones with a soothing, foxy layering of symphonic textures that draw the listener into a wonderfully diluted space of self composed proximities that may or may not hit home with everyone. How, when, and where you listen to this translucent jewel is entirely at your own discretion, but all I will say is that if you do fall asleep during the performance, I wouldn’t really worry too much about it, as I am quite sure that Red Jerry would take it as a ‘huge’ compliment if you did.
