Description

Antinote squeeze out the Mind Lotion: eight sun-drenched excursions, TIP!!Mind Lotion crafts a very modern guide to sun-drenched soundscapes in the form of Altitude Attitudes; a musical travel-log, consisting of eight pieces, written over two years, which are recollections of experiences, moments in time from trips – either real or romanticized – to exotic destinations. Exploring the softness of 1980’s digital presets, Mind Lotion creates mental landscapes in a way reminiscent to D.K.’s escapade to his Island of Dreams (ATN026): mineral samples meet crystalline synths on Dreamscape, evocating half-submerged coral reefs, while the redolent flute on “Atmospherica” perfectly makes up for a great piece of “Lagoon House”. Some tunes from Altitude Attitudes, such as “Hotel Breakfast”, even recall the naivety of “Exotica” masters, while “My Language’s” percussions and eerie sounds somehow taking us back to Umiliani’s vision of Polynesia or Africa. The flip provides the most housey moments of the record with Astro Girl: beginning with a heady DX-7 bassline and layers of digital vibes, the song soon turns itself into a thumping typhoon of club fun. Next to this one is the closing track, Algo Rydim, which illustrates the equilibrium reached by Mind Lotion on Altitude Attitudes: it always stays sophisticated, though it never takes itself too seriously.
