VISIONS IN SONIC SENSEavailable now with FREE 3D spex!!Analogue Mindfield’s Gizzy D explains that the group want to, “create auditory soundscapes of challenging yet accessible music, whilst retaining an inspired socially conscious theme to our tunes”. This ferociously creative outfit indeed harks back to a golden age when reggae called itself roots and planted socially-conscious lyrics into the public’s consciousness. Delivered with sensitivity and passion over stellar riddims, laid down by musicians with an intrinsic feel for the groove, whilst adding a 21st century update in message and incoming musical influences, the results are 100% dynamite.The three main participants are Gizzy D, Snapper J and Kitty B, who are joined on their third studio album, Visions In Sonic Sense, by a supporting cast of singers and players including MC Ishu (Step 13, Manasseh Soundsystem), MC Jaz (DJ Reeza, Scribble Orchestra and now Analogue Mindfield’s new live MC), techno forager Suspira (Transient Dreams who have worked with Eat Static and Ozric Tentacles), Asian Dub Foundation’s Dr Das on occasional bass and G Frequency (Goontrax, Domination Records) providing some luscious double bass and top turntablism.From the upbeat politically-biting skank of Political Patsy to haunting female-sung ballad Reflections, they handle conscious roots outings like Mediocracy and the brass-splattered toast of Eire Beag like the great Jamaican vocal groups of the 70s but still take the form to new vistas in roots dub ballad Dread Up, all bathed in a rich dub afterglow. Be Careful Out There could be a new street anthem for the 21st century while Music Man seems to put an 80s electro-pop outing through the dub blender.Over the years, Analogue Mindfield have worked with a diverse array of UK and Jamaican musicians and made a substantial impact with their first two albums, 2006’s Digital Brainwave and last year’s A Fine Adjustment of Time. Their third album is a mature affirmation of their vision and talent for working with sympathetic co-conspirators while grasping the original multi-cultural roots ethic and taking it into modern times.As to be expected from a Malicious Damage act, Analogue Mindfield don’t confine themselves to the one genre they might be identified with: Soul Crew brings in elements of UK free party dub-techno while Burnt Out plants its incisive rhythms over a drum ’n’ bass charge. The possibilities are infinite.Leftfield’s Cheshire Cat once described the band as, “a heavyweight mix of reggae, old school dub with vibrant brass-driven skank… like a mouthful of liquorice allsorts!” while Primal Scream’s mighty Mani declared, “You’ve got to get Weatherall to listen to these tracks man, he’ll fookin’ love em!”…… So will you.**************************************tracklisting1: anna be careful2: political patsy3: downbeat rebel4: need a leader [dub]5: soul crew6: reflections7: mediocracy8: family ties9: high beam10: dreadup11: burnt out12: eire beag13: be careful out there14: music man15: party’s over16: visions in dubnicolour17: need a leader [reprise]total running time: 1h 12m 12s ********************************
