A kaleidoscope of visionary power, mystery and awe explore and push the outer edges of shamanic-electronic tribalism.
This deep trance-shamanic-atmospheric collaboration evokes the primordial caverns and aeon-blasted landscapes of their groundbreakingThe Serpentâs Lair(Projekt, 2000). And yet a new sound emerges. Itâs a lucid trance-groove experience, a searing combination of acoustic percussion and hyper-dimensional electronic rhythms. The Ultra Tribe are the future primitives: the future-tech foundation wrapped by the organic. Itâs no longer clear where the human ends and the machine begins.
The elements of this sound are Steveâs complex hybrid-grooves overlaid by Byronâs primal, fluid and organic â yet precise â frame drums and percussion. Itâs an atmosphere of shifting soundworlds in which the forms of the Ultra Tribe exist. An alchemy of electronic sequencers, drum machines and percussion locks in the groove, while the human element jumps in and out of the steady pulse, giving the music a passionate intensity. The elements are deftly shaped to a point of complete integration where the final result is transformed into a living breathing body with an electro-organic soul.
As one the original architects of the tribal-ambient genre, Steve Roachâs innovations are mapped out on a long history ofÂ landmark albums. Similarly, Byron Metcalfâs tribal-shamanic albums serve as a benchmark for deep journey exploration. In the late 90âs, Steve teamed up with Byron, and over the span of a dozen years theyâve created an array of releases that explore and push the outer edges of shamanic-electronic tribalism.
The eight pieces onTales From the Ultra Tribeare built into a seamless 74-minute deep-journey experience. With a multi-dimensional trance-groove trajectory, the sound is a tribal-electronic well of experience. A continuous kaleidoscope of visionary power, mystery and visceral awe envelops the listener. The synergistic alchemy of Steveâs and Byronâs work fuses to new levels of audio-induced, mind-expanding music.
