Ancient Astronauts - aka label head Tom Strauch and inhouse producer Ingo Möll - present new fat visions: "Mexican Loneliness" is a heavy nodder whose red sun renders the mouth dry and dusty. "Return To Blackspin (Protassov Remix)" comes as a relaxed and playful remix with lots of atmosphere. "What Does It Take For You" is riddim-driven and alive with flutes and strings.

 

Protassov once again shows himself as a drumster with a head all his own: "Mirrorblind" is thinking man's music for conscious beat friends. "Patterns Of Force" by Protassov & Alexander - aka Tom Strauch - serves as a melancholic reflection - in comparison, "Eyeless & Painfree" shines like a spring meadow with many funky flowers. Finally, "Stupid Pillow (Hint Remix)" is a remix by the new Hombre/Ninja Tune talent with a hint to R'n'B. Handclappin' good!

 

Four-headed band Deela is also heard again here: "Enjoy" is a vivid uptempo chiller for B-boys in their best live tradition. "Wednesday" is an authentic "on the one" Jazz funker and "Conceicao" a NuJazzer with a round bass - already a standard at Deela gigs and appearing here in a special mix.

 

Kabanjak - a moniker of Ingo Möll - is representing here with "Zumbala", an airy Funk take with wide layers and a catchy guitar lick. "I Am Blind" is a real tune with a riddim section that just takes one along. "Chinese Reverie" - a spacious Tai-Chi daydream - closes "Fantastic Freeriding 2".

 

The artwork for "Fantastic Freeriding 2" comes from the renowned NuSkool skier and graphic artist Jamie Strachan, who has already displayed his works at well-known exhibitions like modart and, as founding member of Spiritch Media, designs the boardsports mag "Source" among other things.
