Review:

This compilation has been released in July but I just got my cd now, so here it goes :)

Track 1 is done by Talamasca and has the name of the compilation...it has a power kick bassline, some psychedelic and playful sounds and a beautiful deep melodie, taking us to a kind of a Goa-Trance mood.

Track 2 is from one of my favourite projects of the moment, XSI...it has a superb bass line that takes your feets out of the floor, mixed with a morning melody that transports

Track 3 was released in another compilation from Digital Oracle – Revelations but I think that it was just sold in Japan and the track is here again...marvellous melody like Space Cat allways does.
Track 4 is my favourite here, it rules in any dancefloor...it has that fat Black & White kick bass line, with some psy tunes going in and out; by one side, it seems a very powerfull track but by other it’s very mellow...just listen :)

Track 5 is done by Vibe Tribe and is called Big Tasty...it could be one of the best Vibe Tribe last tracks if there wasn’t all that boring machine sounds near the end; the Vibe Tribe’s beautiful melodies are there but from 5m15s till the end starts to be a bit too much :(

Track 6 is a collaboration between Ptx and Z-Machine and what a collaboration...I think they have to produce more music together because I don’t like too much Z-Machine or Ptx solo projects but the two together are great...fat bassline, nice melodies, all very rhythmic.

Track 7 by Life Extension is called Under Skin...it has nice morning melodies, good brakes but don’t bring nothing new.

Track 8 by Elec3 – Hipnotic is a bit like the last one, it has a nice construction, nice psy tunes but don’t bring nothing new of the majority of the other Elec3 tracks.

For closing the compilation, Mixtec choosed a track that I don’t understand why is here...I like a lot of Shift sound, but seeing the rest of the tracklist, I think he could choosed another one more melodious and pacific for finishing the compilation.


For me, Life Stream in general is a very good compilation, it’s based on fullon but has too other trance styles...my favourites are 2, 3, 4 and 6.

7/10
