Ace Ventura THE DANCE TEMPLE MIX – special pre Boom 2014 set:
One of this year`s most important album releases is Ace Ventura`s ‘Paradise Engineering’, released on Iboga Records. ‘Paradise Engineering’ (Ace Ventura`s 2nd album) brings forward Ace Ventura`s uncompromising style.The album offers to the listener a full power musical journey to different musical worlds, from Indian influences (on Pranava with Astrix) through African tribal percussion beds (on the fantastic Ingonyama, produced with Juno Reactor), always with an emphasis for strong dance floor reactions.
The album offers some huge collaborative tunes, with some serious heavyweight co-conspirators, indicative of the stature and ability of one of the finest psy-prog producers around. Key figures in the scene such as Juno reactor, Astrix, Liquid Soul, Zen Mechanics, LOUD and Symbolic, all collaborated with Ace Ventura on this album. The result is a strong blend of Psy-Progressive with Minimal, Tribal and euphoric trance.
