The long-awaited debut album of the duo Stuart Elliott from the United Kingdom and Emil Anderberg from Sweden sees the light in September 2007. Under their moniker Dream Lab, they have been producing music together since late 2004, when they crossed paths whilst using the same bulletin board on the Internet. It is their unique and captivating sound that has been leaving the listeners wanting more.
Dream Lab’s Cosmotherapy is an amazing blend of Emil’s dark trippy Ambient and mesmerizing rhythms and Stuart’s engaging melodies and evolving soundscapes. Furthermore, it features the amazing vocal work of Seka and Susi Lavender (of the UK-based band CLING), it includes the remixes of Marco Torrance, Ferdy & Edwin, and Easily Embarrassed. Finally all is wrapped together by the awe-inspiring mastering skills of Jeffrey van der Schilden, who is one third of Easily Embarrassed.
Detailed track breakdown:
The journey starts with the killer title track Cosmotherapy. A melodic and light yet lushious track preparing you for the experience to come. Check out the amazing climax near the end!
After the first five magical minutes there is I’ll Guide You. The smooth vocal work of Seka carries you on a peaceful and colorful track. You’ll find yourself on a sunny island, while chilling to the loungey electric piano and the tropical guitar.
Time to cool down in Cryogenic Suspension. The celestial sound will make you vision many things. A beautiful melody and a dreamy atmosphere will give you goosebumps.
Part two of Cryogenic Suspension will let your body temperature drop even more, along with the rest of your body. The wonderful melting riff will put you back on earth for some very different stuff…
Chemical Karmasutra. A top melodic chill track, with some hint of the shaman trance. The most trippy of the tracks, with a slight breakbeat in it. You can see the manifestation of a dream in the distance!
The other vocal track on the album is Silver Skies, which also starts of very calm. Happy, uplifting, and once again melodic. The vocals of Susi Lavender and the production work of Gerald Patient (both from the UK-based band CLING), will also make this track a success.
The last of the original tracks is the Psy-Dub track Suspicious Minds. Containing weird samples, female vocals, trippy sounds and the most amazing reggae beat, this is another track with the unique Dream Lab stamp on it.
After the first seven original tracks, we’re far from the end. Marco Torrance alters Cryogenic Suspension to perfection with an epic Chillout mix. In the style of his debut album Reconstructed Moments, he does an interesting take on this song.
Easily Embarrassed does an amazing remix of the Suspicious Minds dub. Making it even trippier, weirder, this is a must for every Psychill fan!
Finally, the album closes with a Progressive Trance remix of I’ll Guide You. Edwin & Ferdy, who recently got signed with Global Underground and Armada Music, will let you either rock in your chair or dance on your feet! All in all, a perfect addition and closing track to this album.
