FORCES OF NATURE – JOURNEYS IN TIME AND SPACE – Released: March 19th 2012 – IA7
Forces of Nature are back on Intelligent Audio with a full length album, it’s been a long time coming and worth the wait!
Forces Of Nature emerged in the mid-nineties and have always been very prolific producers, releasing on LTJ Bukem’s Earth and Cookin’ labels, and Clean Up Records (home of the Sneaker Pimps), remixing The Shamen and being remixed themselves by the likes of Big Bud and PFM. They have worked on many collaborations, and have their own label Tundra Records, as well as their work for Intelligent Audio.
‘Journeys In Time and Space’ is quite simply a divine excursion into the philosophy of the label, delivering a musical message of intricate beauty, emotional melodies, deep techy basslines and razor sharp production.
11 tracks bound together in a mature musicality that only comes with years of experience and an infinite talent at the core.
This album will appeal to lovers of all genres of the underground, with an ear for what touches the soul, from the funky laidback groove of the opening track ‘Timeless’ to deep house grooves like Air of Da Dawg and 6equj5 wow and the epic spacey soundtrack of the closing salvo ‘The Prophet’, it’s a cosmic journey from start to finish.
A long time in the making, this LP will be a firm favourite among serious music heads the world over who will appreciate the love and attention to detail that has been carefully crafted into this classic audio sculpture.

Discoteca – Been following these guys for a while, Sushi is my pick here.
DJ Nova, Greece – Lost in the magic. High recommended sound experience, really beautiful and seductive long player. The limits borders between house and jazz, especially between deep house and nu jazz is not excist here, ‘’Suchi’’ as example is starting its journey as deep house from the early ninities with jazz influences that melted together with a beautiful atmosfear and ending like dreamy nu jazz like this one that we all miss, like ‘’Timeless’’ is opening the long player and ‘’Advent’’ offering few tracks later. ‘’Hive Mind’’ got a gentle funky jazz hidden in its veins and a hilarious live instrumentation, ‘’Stasis’’ meets broken beat, an etherial ambienteque jazz aspect of it. Tech edges excist everywhere, pumping ‘’Air Of Da Dawg’’ is softly touching them, ’E3QU Wow!’’ seems that is trying to escape from Detroit… The album is rolling really perfect and finishing with night lover ‘’Borg Mentality’’ and closing with the epic ten minutes long ‘’The Prophet’’, a perfect soundtrack for next N.A.S.A’s mission. Do you need a digital soundtrack for an imaginert film? I think you got it!
