Album Review :: Red Buddha – Tibet Trance Feat by Lenny Mac Dowell

Red Buddha Tibet Trance Review

Red Buddha Tibet Trance Feat

This album is i.m.o. awesome. When I heard it the first time I thought it was a bit slow in progression. But after listening it through a few times, relaxing my expectations, I realized the brilliance in mixing deep ambiance with psychedelic trance and sound samples from the Himalayan Buddhist culture. Lenny Mac Dowell definitely created a uniquely meditative yet engaging musical experience with the Tibet Trance Feat

Buddha ambiance

Most of the tracks start with an environmental ambiance with sounds from daily life in Tibet like monks chanting or the noise from a typical marketplace, animal or nature sounds. The tracks mesmerizes the listener with almost ambient bass-lines, percussion loops and melodies that progressively ascend into the foreground ultimately creating "full on" trance dance themes.

Long tracks

If you listen to excerpt mp3’s from this album remember that the songs are long and therefore won’t reveal all the hidden (psychedelic) ambiance just by hearing a snippet of the song.
