Code Indigo – Take The Money And Run

Take the Money and Run’ reflects the history of this enigmatic band with a clever choice of songs, old and new, that also feature many of the bands’ recent musicians; presented with a 16 page booklet containing various line-up pics and notes on the project by David Wright.

The CD contains two expertly Dave Massey crafted remixes from ‘TimeCode’: the pulsating ‘Eden to Corruption’ and a stripped bare ‘Call of the Earth’. ‘Return to Gaia’ is a new version of a track previously only available on a limited edition European compilation. ‘Ashes and Snow’ is a brand new piece which was unable to be included on ‘MELTdown’.

‘A Question of Answers’ sees Wright and Fox joined by vocalist Carys to revisit and re-record in the studio a beautiful piece previously only available on the Derby Cathedral CD. This track, both artists agree, best sums up Code Indigo. The final 30 minute epic is a live track from 2007 featuring 6 interlinked pieces from ‘For Whom the Bell’, ‘Uforia’, ‘TimeCode’ and ‘Chill’.

Code Indigo – MELTdown

Code Indigo is regarded as one of Europe’s premiere electronic music bands and with MELTdown, they’ve delivered an aptly named follow up to the 2007 release ‘Chill’ and it has already been described as; “A majestic tour de force”.

Helmed by veteran UK synth maestro David Wright, co founder and sole survivor from the original 1994 line-up, and producer Dave Massey, the new look Code Indigo continues its own tradition of producing imaginative and thematic keyboard/guitar based chill-out music.

While comparisons have been made with instrumental ‘Pink Floyd’ and ‘Art of Noise’, the Code Indigo sound and style remains totally original, unique and above all, contemporary.

‘MELTdown’ is an epic, concept style musical journey. There are 16 beautifully conceived and highly evocative interlinked tracks that cleverly pay homage to all previous Code Indigo albums while remaining inventive and original. It is moody and topical electronica featuring some of the most atmospheric and thought provoking chill out style electronica you’re likely to hear anywhere.

Trinity – Music for Angels

Angels have featured in many fictitious stories and art forms over the decades and this Music for Angels CD is in the same vein.
68 minutes of drifting meditation music that’s in a class of its own.

This is classic instrumental music, where the three musicians have combined their respective talents to present a unique vision of what ‘drifting meditation music’ should be. Beautiful, delicate pads and strings intertwine with gentle lead lines underpinned by gorgeous acoustic guitar work.

There’s superb interaction between the musicians along the way to, from the romantic refrains of ‘Loves Purest Light’ through the gently uplifting ‘Angels in the Sunlight’ and into the thought provoking ‘Eternal Reincarnation’. This is new age meditation music to savour!
