.....The Saafi Brothers make a hybrid of ambient, dub, house, and trance. And within these softly "progressive" realms, the Saafi Brothers have previously made some smooth-listening gems of chill-out. In 1997, their album Mystic Cigarettes delved into ambience and tranced beats that was fascinating, if not attuned to its time, what in the early '90s would have been somewhere in the realm of ambient house, of Café del Mar compilations, The Orb and The KLF's Chill Out.....

.....A lot of the material here has a deceptive sense of duality. On one had, the music would be ideal for chilling out at home - or tripping depending on your poison. At the same time, there's enough hustle happening that the material is eminently danceable. That juxtapose is at work on a cut like "Sunchild," a tribal number with an enveloping density but persistent and chugging beat. Again on "Lovin' Music," with its deeply twisted vocals and great percussion, and the title album track, "Liquid Beach." The album is rounded off with two different mixes of the morning trance-tinged "Metapop."
Liquid Beach is a fantastic destination boasting a soundtrack of trance, dub, downtempo, dance and sun-kissed psychedelics......

Frankfurt, Germany-based Saafi Brothers are an electronics oriented outfit that perpetuates trippy vibes and calming EFX. However, the musicians (Michael Kohlbecker and Gabriel Le Mar) enhance their palette with pumping rhythms and inauspicious treatments amid quaint melodies. They effectively meld elements of the visual with lucid soundscapes and blissful themes.
I've always liked Saafi Brothers after hearing their debut album Mystic Cigarettes. Released in 97, it seemed far ahead of its time, delving into what would later be known as psychill or morning trance, but bringing traditional ambient roots to the mix. I loved that album, and so I was excited to get my hands on the next album of theirs I came across, Liquid Beach. This is simply a fantastic album that hovers comfortably somewhere between trance, downtempo and techno. All 3 genres make a strong appearance in their own ways and will appeal to listeners who appreciate musical diversity. From chill-out BPMs up to the mid 130s, this album is a fantastic example of 4/4 trance crafted with an ambient/downtempo flair rarely heard in the electronic music world. Highly recommended.
