With very subtle distinctions, and a slow, calm atmosphere that functions within the rhythms that dictates the unforgiving easiness that triggers the melodies around skies of exceedingly efficient sonorous flows, Shamanic Experience is an album that captivates the listener by reenergizing the most traditional elements of Trance music. Although very standardized by a colorful, but at the same time vaguely opaque nuance of a massive equilibrium between Chillout and Downtempo elements, the Trance mostly predominates, with a very intriguing layer of superior originality, never sounding boring, repetitive, tedious, limited, or resentful of imitations, although it does retain several aspects of the genre that could be regarded as pervasive and fastidious at times. Nevertheless, while managing to be faithful to the most pervasive elements of the genre, the record itself aggregates subtly a useful pattern of progressive beats and creatively settled orders.
Undoubtedly very interesting for Trance fans, the album do provide a cool vibration and a fascinating ambient experience, that traditional Trance isn’t able to fully achieve, for relying primarily on a wider circle of confident and usual sonorous uniformity, that sounds always the same. Shamanic Experience, on the other hand, explores a very winding field of constrained melodies, that manages to rearrange a sincere and expansive confluence of restful beats in the lines of its own sonorous frontiers, realigning the apparent limitations of the genre in something categorically distinct.
A very decent work, with a very satisfying result, especially in such a difficult and narrow genre, Shamanic Experience does live by the force of its title: it is – if you are a person bound for meditation – a shamanic experience, by sound, sensation and harmony, floating throughout the boundaries of an unknown universe, by the wingspan of its own escalating transcendental melodies. Certainly providing a firm, decent, cool-minded and transient recollection of monumental sounds in a vast sphere of delusional transparency, Shamanic Experience, by Jedidiah is an exceedingly good exemplar on the Trance subgenre of electronica, so good that it is capable of attracting even the ones who are not particularly interested in this style of music.
