As much as I enjoy experimental music, after a full immersion afternoon of listening and reviewing weird sounds a CD like this is almost like breathing in fresh air ;-). Extremely smooth and beautiful jazzy sounds create a lush laid back washed ambience where brushes on drums, hi-pitched whispered female singing (by Marie-Louise Munch), lazy distant easy hammond chords and lonely, dreamy, floating and ethereal atmospheres catch your attention and convince you all the way through. What a pleasant and pleasing listening experience! The "Here to Go" extended AB/2 CD EP (which means a 31 minutes long CD with a transparent outer part) is basically sort of a maxi single of the award winning song "Here to Go" (from their other full lenght CD "#1" - read review elsewhere on these pages). After the opening radio edit of the single, the other 5 versions of the song are remixes by techno producers Full Swing (former Stol drummer) with Stephan Matheiu, Zammutto, prolific Chris Jeely aka Acclera Deck, Matematics (also known as Lee NOrris, Norken, Tone Language, Small Medium and Nacht Plank) and Geiom (collaborator of Skam, City Center Offices, Hem and Small Medium). These remixes are not techno though, most of them are sort of trip-hop... They keep the slow laid back motion and make it more exciting by stepping into the fields of electronica, pop, ambient and, like I said, trip-hop (I can't seem to stop thinking about Portishead...). The design is green and immediately reminds of their blue main release "#1". Ladies and gentleman this is a GREAT CD that I strongly recommend to anybody feeling the whole uk-style jazzy/trip-hop/electronic vibe... Get in the groove... extend your Antenna!
