MOONTRIBE - Max Corbacho
Format: CD, FLAC + MP3 Download
"A collection of previously not published tracks, destined to collaboration projects that finally did not see the light, plus two totally new pieces. Moontribe creates an immersive space, where spectral colourzones meet floating tribal-esque pulsing groovescapes. The four first tracks correspond to stage 2000-2001, the tribal character emerges forcefully in "Suntribe", the first piece of the CD, and the energic percussions drive the atmospheric textures also in the next two tracks. Huge growing currents of sound are rising, falling and surrounding. Techno-tribal beats, with mesmerizing sound effects are taking full control of us. The sound here is so powerful, expanding yet warm and elegant. This most beautiful storm we've been in ends somewhere in the deep hidden ancient foggy swamps. The two final pieces were created in the last months of 2003, in them can be appreciated the evolution of Max´s soundscapes. The final cut, "Moontribe", spiral in an entrancing and melancolic synth layered chords over 20 minutes, a vastly, relaxed and amorphous immersive conclussion.
"Overall, though the music is simply stunning as the musician constructs these giant synth compositions that flow to the stars on unending layers of synth music heaven. Simply, a brilliant album."
"Max Corbacho’s Moontribe is a heady collection of ethno-cyber-ambient rhythmic soundscapes that makes my blood race"
"Tracks like Across The Spectrum and the titletrack are of an unprecedented beauty that I consider masterpieces. In the genre this is the absolute top"
"It’s an impressive aural journey of 67 minutes through vast tribal-ambient territory in which organic soundscaping comes together with strong rhythmic counterpoints."
"The clarity and transparency of these tracks is a delight to the ear - pulling the listener into beguiling worlds of liquid reverberation and interwoven crystal impact."
