dr moods Heard the track "Voices" on the radio Christmas morning while on the road. This confirmed two things. One was that I had to possess this record. Two was that Pocock is a legend DJ. Close second fave track "Today" Favorite track: Voices.

Audio Texture Quality, lazy and hazy soundtrack for stoned states of mind near (preferably warm) sea views. Favorite track: Healing Feeling.

Michael Feihstel While Tornado's recent EP on Music From Memory's Second Circle imprint already indicated a promising LP debut, this album is even more satisfying than expected. Tribal, cosmic, atmospheric music that works at home and on the floor. Favorite track: Today Feat. Sui Zhen.

The eye of the storm: welcome to Tornado Wallace's debut album! The accumulation of about four years of work, with tracks written in Berlin and Melbourne, 'Lonely Planet' is nothing like you may have expected from the Australian expat. No stranger to fans and followers of ESP Institute, Beats in Space and Music From Memory's sister Label Second Circle, Tornado Wallace's strain of releases so far merged functionality with a musical playfulness that led him to find himself as one of the producer's behind José Padilla's International Feel album. Here, he leaves the needs of the dance floor behind in order to create a magical mystery tour de trance into his and our inner jungle.

How about some references? New Age sounds meet new wave melodies, Grace Jones runs into the Dire Straits at Compass Point, while a Korg Mini Pops and a Roland CR78 make amends for Sly & Robbie's absence, Michael Mann pictures Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness', Robert Rauschenberg tries his luck at naturalism and an imagined Wally Badarou echoes through all of it.

Sandwiched between the title track and the yearning beauty of the album's final point 'Healing Feeling', you get all of that as well as collaborations with and contributions of NO ZU, David Hischfelder and the voice of Sui Zhen on 'Today', who would easily make Anna Domino take her proverbial hat off.

Tornado Wallace created an album that supersedes the requirements and expectations of a debut. Like a lost Island Records or a never released Made to Measure album, 'Lonely Planet' soundtracks notions and ideas that recall the nostalgic future in the past as much as it looks ahead.
