Review: Fledgling Psy-trance label Free-Spirit Records, coming straight out of London, presents it's inaugural release Free-Spirit Compilation Vol.1 - Brahmaputra, though the only Anglo-centric aspect of this collection, of new and exclusive tunes, is the label's UK base. Rather it has a distinctly multicultural zest thus mirroring today's international psy-scene. Brahmaputra is compiled by DJ and label manager Jay OM.
Review: "Driftwood" is the brand new full length album by seasoned studio musician and performer Rena Jones. It is an album of complex emotional depth, instrumental mastery, and tender attention to detail. Imbued with a sense of feminine grace, this album moves through textured and layered realms to pieces of touching mystery. Rena Jones is an anomaly in modern electronic music. She writes, performers, produces, programs, and plays virtuosic strings all by herself. In a music scene dominated by men, she has proven herself to be more capable and more original than her contemporaries. Not content to be an addition or continuation of anyone else's work, she has created a modern electronic statement which is entirely unique. Her work is sophisticated, delicate, touching, and personal. The music connects to people instantly in an emotional way, and allows them the freedom for an experience of depth as they journey through the worlds she has created. Throughout, the album is graced by Rena's cello and violin work, which makes this album stand out in a sea of records which tread the same ground. The juxtaposition of organic and electronic sounds blends seamlessly into an unforgettable musical experience. Native State is proud to present "Driftwood", the first in a series of new artist albums which showcase our sound: forward thinking, emotional, and distinct.
