Culled from the recent dissolution of Rubbish Records, and seeing a proper release for the first time, Mesmobeat presents Dave Skipper’s “Convoluted Substances” remix album.
'Convoluted Substances' is a highly original dance remix album of sounds, samples and guitar solos from Skipper's debut album 'Essence'. 'Essence' itself is an oblique mixture of warped, psychedelic synthscapes and some truly intense guitar soloing, a fitting soundtrack to a strange dream. At once intense and chilled, 'Essence' pays respect to the music of Steve Vai and the Ozric Tentacles, but with its own unique sound.
'Convoluted Substances' takes this sound to the next dimension: an incredible collection of diverse tunes by various artists who have moulded fragments from 'Essence' into intriguing concoctions that are brimming with energy. Predominantly drum'n'bass in style, but also sporting a couple of trance/techno numbers and even a funk rock tune, the music blends intricate rhythms, tricky lead guitar and mutant synth textures into a riveting journey that clocks in at over 70 minutes.
The album boasts an exclusive track from Eat Static, the legendary space-techno pioneers, plus a superb piece from fellow Mesmobeat artists ZubZub (who feature ex. Members of Ozric Tentacles), alongside an array of other high quality creations, it is sure that your speaker cones will get full spectral conditioning and your head will spin with lucid delight!.
Featuring a 4 page booklet and a fold out poster cartoon featuring the adventures of “Alien Creosote”, a topical mini-story linked to the album
