The three tracks, plus a bonus remix from elusive wizard Reptant, were recorded over a two week period in Bogota, Colombia, and conjure up vivid spectacles of a mysterious labyrinth populated by sprit entities and trans-dimensional serpents.
The title track, "Dream Portal", unlocks the gateway via a dank, sway-worthy roller, equally menacing and eclipsing, paving the way for the A2 "Crystal Viewer" where propelling snares layer across delicate harmonic tension and spatial delay. Sparse sub bass fills the foundations to complete this progressive trance fusion in a grandiose style.
On the flip "Star Fissure" delves into high-octane liminal electro. Slick rolls, percussive fills and its hovering, humming bird NRG make this a daring DJ’s dream. Meanwhile, the Reptant mix of "Dream Portal" deploys a degree of lysergic squelch to the originals stems for an acid-punch enriched trip peppered beautifully by the Roland 303. Add some skillfully executed flurries of activity on the live tape delay and you've got yourself another stonking slice of lizard-tek!
