Air Liquide


Could this be the most truly psychedelic record to come out of the birth of trance? Cem Oral and Ingmar Koch aka Jammin’ Unit and Dr. Walker would make all kinds of more straight-ahead – often furiously noisy – dancefloor music under other guises, but as Air Liquide and particularly on this album they threw everything into making things as braincell-tingling as they possibly could. Murmuring vocals that felt like they made sense but were completely abstracted on close examination, 303s gurgling and echoing, ambient excursions. unexpected twangs of spaghetti western guitar or Rasta voices: it’s a wonderland of weird.
