RAM DASS & KRIECE

- COSMIX

2008-09-15

This is a collaboration between Australian Electronic DJ Kriece and 60s psychedelic guru Ram Dass. Although less relevant today then in the 90s when “chill-out” music first enjoyed huge popularity, this LP conjures visions of all night, drug fueled parties on distant beaches. The music is a trance mix of trip hop/tribal beats, dub baselines and vocal snippets of Ram Dass chopped and looped. While Ram Dass’ spoken words are few, they create a powerful mood and combine nicely with Kriece’s percussion heavy grooves. With a sound similar to The Orb, or DJ Shawdow, the tracks all reasonable in length and broadcast friendly. Check out tracks #2, #3, and #4, a mystical mantra about drug use and eventual enlightenment
