Nice cover art - a big pyramid stage not unlike the one reportedly spotted at Samothraki this year, giving birth to glowing butterflies - nice! Synthetic's up first with a remix of Bamboo Forest's Ohmboys. A hard funky bass line underlies a swishing top end. After the break the temperature rises with the pitch as Dado cranks it up. Altom follow with Cycles, an ambient intro leads us to the drop of a thumping bassline as crisp stuttering percussion flits around in the background. There is nice progression throughout as loads of layers come and go. Talamasca step up next with The Missing Link, nicely remixed by Silicon Sound. Things get more full on now - a bouncing oscillating bassline keeps pace while all sorts of bells and drums echo behind. Nice melodies float around as a rising acid line builds the pressure. 'Do you know where you are?' - you won't after this drops back after the break. It kicks back in a stripped down fashion before building it all back again with stabbing synth lines and uplifting French melodies. Atomic Pulse, fresh from Israel, seem to be infecting all sorts of compilations recently, and this is one of their darker offerings. Crashing percussion and a driving bass make this a strong tune. A wizard's voice spooks you in the break and then it gets deep. More spooky voices float around on the edge of consciousness and it's a pseudo-melodic final run. Polaris take us to Breaking Point with some sci-fi samples and another deep pulsating bass line. The atmosphere is other worldly and the whole tune has quite a techish feel to it, with strangely flexible and stretchy synth lines! Next up is the debut release for Camposonic - the younger sibling of Riktam from...er...wait a minute - I'm sure that name sounds familiar ;o Similar in style to the growling mad ones but with all the madness and enthusiasm of fresh blood - a real floor burner, plenty of ideas and nicely put together. Then it's this summer's anthem tune - Psychedelic Circus. Classic quote and not half a good tune either - more outdoor party fodder. D-Tek (rarely heard from since Psychedelic Cowboy on Assasi: nations) teams up with Paul Taylor for another quality psychedelic stomper, and then it's Logic Bomb masquerading as Alternate Vision. What a way to finish :) This tune brings up visions of enormous stacks of speakers spewing out their twisted psychedelia deep into the night. Spacey and etheral and very banging! Quality release of outdoor party dancefloor tunage. Rating: 4 out of 5. Compiled By Dimitri Nakov And Paul Taylor After the first installment of the internationally acclaimed 'Time and Space Part 1', the Mexican-based trance label is back and proud to announce the follow up to that groundbreaking compilation. Although evolution has played it's role here: the cocoons have matured, and the butterflies have left them behind to take flight into THE MAIA WORLD in order to establish once again, Mexico as one of the nodes in the worldwide Psy-Trance web. Time and Space Part 2 is a collection of music that represents the gathering sound we dance and listen to at most outdoor parties in Mexico and around the planet. DJ's DIMITRI NAKOV and PAUL TAYLOR have scoured the globe and have come up with another nine exclusive and unheard psychedelic gems of pure dancefloor madness. Featuring some of the world's top flight Psy-Trance composers like SYNTHETIC, LOGIC BOMB (this time under the moniker of ALTERNATE VISION), and SOUNDAHOLIX teamed up with PAUL TAYLOR whilst on a trip to Mexico which inspired the creation of the anthemic 'PSYCHEDELIC CIRCUS'. Time and Space Part 2 also introduces newer artists that are on a rapidly rising trajectory, and deliver fresh sounds to this masterpiece compilation, such as, POLARIS, ALTOM and ATOMIC PULSE (developed by TAMIR OZANA, whom also goes as SPECTRUM combined with the genius of DJ Dede). Some of the rarer tracks on this comp include an exclusive remix of BAMBOO FOREST's 'OHM BOYS' by SYNTHETIC; 'HARI KATSCH' created by RIKTAM's younger brother (but not lesser music & computer genius), SHANTI and PAUL TAYLOR; a remix follow-up to TALAMASCA's 'THE MISSING LINK' featured in TIME and SPACE pt.1 by SILICON SOUND; and PAUL TAYLOR'S collaboration with Mexican DJ/Producer David Durst aka D-TEK, whom's half-way responsible for creating the polemic, yet acclaimed guitar blaster 'PSYCHEDELIC COWBOY' released on TIPWORLD's 'ASSASSI: NATIONS'.
