Dream Tracker
by Bill Binkelman, New Age Retailer
September 2010

Bringing ambient-wunderkind Steve Roach and percussionist/drummer extraordinaire Byron Metcalf together always results in an explosion of primal power married to darkly sensual soundscapes. On DREAM TRACKER, the duo is joined by didgeridoo/tabla/hapi-drum player Dashmesh Khalsa, and the assembled trio conjures up a musical exploration of ancient mystery, haunting memory, and shadowy visions. I once described Metcalf's earlier CD, THE SHAMAN'S HEART, as "a trip way up river into the heart of a ... rainforest." DREAM TRACKER goes even further, leaving the boat behind and continuing the journey on foot, heading into an uncharted jungle landscape where the native peoples still practice the "old ways," surrounded by the Earth Mother's exotic flora and fauna.

The essential ingredients of ancient and contemporary shamanic trance states are fully activated in this highly potent new release. Byron carved out a collection of incredible trance grooves for nearly a year, eventually bringing in the prana-infused didgeridoo of Dashmesh Khalsa on every track. Steve joined on in early January 2010 and poured his heart and soul-drenched soundworlds into the six pieces, covering a full range of ecstatic dreamtime flow: rhythm, breath and expansion. The end result is a full-blown dreamtime alchemy of all the elements. The living, breathing percussion, didgeridoo and soundworlds are unified in a single purpose: to open to the door out of the ordinary world, initiating the listener into an empowered journey of infinite possibilities for spiritual rebirth, illumination, and transcendence.
