Limited 2CD 20th Anniversary Edition of Igizeh, Banco de Gaia’s fifth studio album.
Igizeh built on the groundwork laid by its predecessors and is filled with references to Indian and Near Eastern music, as well as less obvious glances at American minimalist music.
Two tracks feature the vocals of Portland, Oregon native Jennifer Folker (including the chilly, atmospheric Obsidian).
The album also saw the introduction of field recordings to Banco’s arsenal, in this case made on location inside Egypt’s Great Pyramid at Gizeh, and on the streets of Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. From these, Banco de Gaia created multi-world music, featuring pumping synths and percussive accents, tribal drums and trumpet sounds, whirring electronics and whooshing jungle strings. The result was widescreen, technicolor worldwide grooves, some designed for the dancefloor, others for more horizontal listening.
This edition comes with a second disc of remixes from the time, including the previously vinyl only Jack Dangers dub, plus a handful of fresh remixes by fellow Disco Gecko artists.
As with the previous 20th Anniversary reissues of Banco albums, Igizeh will only be available in limited edition CD format, with no downloads or streams available.
