Boomkat Product Review:
Necessary reissue of Laraaji's Brian Eno-produced sophomore album, originally issued on Editions EG in 1980, two years after recording and releasing his gorgeous debut, 'Celestial Vibrations'.
With the boffin Eno at the desk, 'Days of Radiance' presents "an uncharted synthesis of resonating zither textures, hammered rhythms and 3-D sound treatments" rendering his fluid improvisations in a series of swirling, layered trips.
It's effectively new age in dub, inhabiting a unique space of complex, diffuse harmonic patterns and overtones mapping out hypnotic, oneiric terrain between the styles.
If, like us, you've run the grooves of 'Celestial Vibrations' thin, you really need this one, too.
