The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
Formed back in 1996 by Stephane Benhamou, Javier Da Calloy and Cedric Dassulle, Talamasca is a French psy-trance group whose name was inspired by one of Anne Rice’s books. Today, it is a solo project of Cedric Dassulle.
In focus this week is the title track of Talamasca’s 5th studio album, Obsessive Dream, released in 2007 under his own imprint, Mind Control Records.
Obsessive Dream‘s prominent baseline, great use of acids, and generally accelerated delivery of sound work very well together, creating the addictive soundscapes that have become a staple of psy-trance productions. A good track is not merely a nice arrangement of sounds, but rather something that flows effortlessly. This is even more important in psy-trance, since the main attraction of it, is the organic flow of sound throughout the track.
Since it’s Halloween night, I suppose this is my recommendation for the occasion. Until next week, here’s Obsessive Dream:
