The release is great but definitely the biggest discovery of this release for me was Soundcheck! :) The two tracks .ch.ch and More attention are great!

A quick sample from the EEG taken from an ant queen hidden deep within her fortress, at the time when someone has just poured a bottle of acid over her troops. It tickles.

Deckard and Rachael goes out for an evening walk to the seashore with a bottle of good wine. Finally they see some shooting stars.

For some random reason my car mp3 player started with this track today, and I suddenly felt myself completely outdated and boring. There are some other great tracks on this release, but this one is really outstanding for me.

As I wrote in my review on LiveJournal, this is the most consistently listenable compilation on Kahvi yet. I like the unified theme, which seems to be serenity, as seen in a machine world.

Favorites: everything by Kukiklo, Island Near the Clouds; their tracks end alll too soon. Same for "Sole Noid" by Torley: fantastic, but over too quickly. I need to find more stuff by Torley and Island Near the Clouds; these new artists really got my attention!

Other favorites: Soundcheck's second track, "More attention," was very evocative; it stirred my imagination the way Alexi Virta did on his album "Meets Torsti at the Space Lounge," which puts "More attention" right up there with the very best netaudio I've ever heard, period. It's too bad that his first contribution, ".ch.ch" was unlistenable. Still, he makes a worthy comeback with "More attention." I want more like this.

Tiny Disco: who's the mystery artist along with Mikael Fyrek? This track was quite good; the beat was almost four-to-the-floor, not the usual crunchy organic percussion Mikael is known for. Compelling yet unpredictable. Very beaty and meaty. More? More would be nice.

Well done, Kahvi. Thanks for this album; lots of good scifi soundscapes.
