A pairing that has been two years in the making - both Nmesh and t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 have risen as two of the world's most prominent experimental-electronic artists in recent times, though had never crossed paths before. Now, Dream Catalogue mainstay Telepath brings Nmesh to the label for the first time for the heavyweight, 2-hour split album, 'ロストエデンへのパス'
ロストエデンへのパス (The Path To Lost Eden) is - as is usually the case with both artists - one where a strong concept and narrative runs through the album. The album is split effectively into two halves - A: The Path and then the "Lost Eden" itself as side B - with Nmesh taking control for the epic journey on Side A, while Telepath invites the listener into another look into the world of dreams with his Lost Eden on Side B.
Though there are no collaborative tracks here as there where with Telepath's split with Golden Living Room earlier this year, the album maintains a cohesive structure between the artists separate sides, with their similarities and differences complimenting each other well. Fans of Nmesh will recognise his narrative-like composition techniques, with use of quotes to maintaine a sense of cohesion between the different tracks and new age vibes, while fans of Telepath will be reminded of some of his Virtual Dream Plaza side project from earlier this year.
