Kahvi returns from its summer holiday with a new ep. Two artists make up Dream Lab - our very own Stuart Elliott and a guest artist Soundfreak who hails from Sweden. A collaboration in electronic music creating easy listening, melodic and interesting audio compositions. great production and that usual Elliott finish make for an exciting and interesting ep. Kahvi, back on top form!

I was digging around in the Kahvi catalog archive, including older forum threads, looking for intriguing artist and album names. This certainly fits the bill. The music is fantastic! I must find more by Dream Lab. They have an ability to convey mood, images, and thought in a similar manner to Mikael Fyrek, Flutterspot, Planet Boelex, and Dreamweaver. Oh-so-wholesome tunes!

This album is extremely nice, attention-holding, compulsive, ethereal, almost hypnotic, yet never venturing far from a driving rhythm. A standout all around -- worth burning to CD!

After a serious car accident (a big truck came, driver asleep or didn't see us and hit us from the site at a bridge in Hamburg, car totally smashed, nobody injured, yippie!) this music is even more appreciated (better listen to music while alive, I'd say :( :D ).

(The picture above looks like taken in Hamburg, U2 trainstation, but in fact it could be anywhere in Germany or wherever someone put an AUFW?TS to it).

In the mood I am now I like the minutes at about 6'40 in the first track most, and the artistic start of cryogenic suspension II.
This release sounds to me like the musicians didn't care what might be "poshy" or what others see like an "outworn clich?" - they just do what they like, and it sounds wonderful. For example, to me the voice samples at the beginning of cryogenic suspension II sound like instruments to me (now :D ). Very nice indeed.

A well-known suite for di.fm chillout listeners. I'm glad to get these mp3 in full quality!! Thanks a lot, DreamLab dudes!! Melancholic (or Maestitia :wink: ) tracks are sometimes a necessary stop to make a step ahead in our quotidian journey.
Thumbs up! :D

Very nice ep. It reminds me of the older kahvi stuff, which I find myself avidly going back to more often as of late, with a few exceptions. ;)

Welcome back kahvi. :)

For the first release in over a month, I'd say it was pleasantly surprising. Very nice release, but for such a absence I was kinda expecting a few more tracks. This is great never the less.
