Accadia "Blind Visions"

Out Now on Lost Language

Accadia is the brainchild of producer and remixer Michael Woods. Known to many for his work as Praetorian and Warrior, Michael has made a name for himself over the years with chilled remixes of such artists as BBE, Energy 52, and many others in addition to slightly more upbeat mixes for Solar Stone and Tillman and Ries. His debut Accadia release, 'Into The Dawn' became a seminal classic thanks not only to Michael's lush ambient mix, but great remixes from Ashtrax and James Holden. Now he returns with the follow up, 'Blind Visions'.

Israeli psytrance producer 'Yahel' shows there is more to him than meets the eye, turning in a fast paced atmospheric progressive edged trancer on the a-side, gorgeous riffs and horns melting subtly into the main vocal hook, building and building to a dramatic full on climax, keeping you engrossed throughout. Uplifting , emotive and quite frankfully stunning...

'Harry Peat' takes things on a more dubbed out chilled journey, the vocal being used to full effect to full out the excellent production, layers of subtle atmospheric breaks running softly over the underpinned melody line, intricate fx floating away adding depth to the vocal.. Already a favourite with Max Graham who has featured it on his forthcoming cd.

Futher more commercial edged remixes come from Michael himself who turns in an 'Accadia Club Mix' and German duo 'Pitch and Sulphur', both mixes having been supported by the likes of Ferry Corsten and Paul Van Dyk, but for the more progressive minded, it's this first disc that holds the goods.
