THE DEVINE XPERIENCE

Electronica’s a funny thing. I always expect every act to sound the same, because really, how much can one do with remixes, samples, and synthesizers?

Turns out a lot. The Devine Xperience, recently signed to Keoki records, are birthing alternative realities with their time-defying, super-charging, futuristic melodies.

Anything with the “dubstep” tag used to be met with my immediate suspicion and scorn. Yet The Devine Xperience softens the hard-hitting bass lines typically associated with the genre by infusing a slough of musical movements, such as trance, acid, and electro. Plus, Vanessa’s voice keeps my ears rapt with attention.

Robert (who writes all the music) has this to say of the project:

“I try to take listeners on a journey into their innermost senses, almost as though I’m acting as a musical shaman.”

That goal is unequivocally reached! This album is right up there with chakra chants and Korean meditation music for hitting the sweet spot of a vision quest. Seriously: during Completely In A Trance, close your eyes right when Vanessa says so. Your lobes will fuzz!

Disorientation is made surprisingly soothing with this dimension-bending, pleasantly unique release.
