Multi-instrumentalist John Deere (the man behind Cybertribe) continues his explorations in ambient, trance, and ethnic fusion on the textured and engaging EONS OF DIGNITY. Cybertribe's beats are part-tribal and part-dance club, with songs like "Autumn Spirit" riding a deep, in-the-cut groove colored by auxiliary percussion and effects-treated didgeridoo. "To the Moon," the album's opener, could by the soundtrack to a Celtic ritual as put together by some savvy, downtown DJs.
Washes of synthesizer splash through the album, whether over pulsing techno-inspired rhythms ("Forces of Nature"), or floating, ambient sound-journeys ("Fairle Mountains").
As the name of his project indicates, Deere brings together a penchant for heady, melodic exploration with insistent rhythmic patterns and pulses, so that albums like EONS OF DIGNITY are appropriate for full-moon parties, late-night clubbing, or interior travel at home with a stereo and a pair of headphones.
