Various - Grandfather Paradox (BBE)

Tired of the usual compilation concept of mixing upfront gems or solely concentrating on a certain sub genre or musical lifestyle choice, Henrik Schwarz, Âme and Dixon bring us the time travelling inspired Grandfather Paradox. This intriguing mix CD cuts through a range of bpms, genres and dates, bringing us a collection of tracks that eschews solely technoid material one may expect from these German heavyweights for something infinitely more rewarding, which is broadly linked by the concept of musical minimalism. Layering grooves and emotions, this hypnotic ride features wondrous moments such as Steve Reich & Pat Metheny’s beautiful Electric Counterpoint (Fast Movement 3), John Carpenter’s sinister The President Is Dead and Yusef Lateef’s graceful The Three Faces Of Bala. Less is more with The Grandfather Paradox!
