The latest release on Cymasonic Recordings is the third in their Dance Music Therapy series with Trulz & Robin, longtime contributors to the Oslo techno scene with a healthy discography to show for it. Each volume in the series has come with remixes and the newest installment sees Usmev take on this role. It all starts out with the beautiful, soul searching ambient track most properly titled "Adventure". Besides its existence as a wonderful listening experience, the piece also works as a DJ tool for the more creative selectors out there. In Usmev's homage to the original, he respectfully layers on lush sonic accoutrements and makes it a more danceable affair with the use of a steady kick, simmering highs, and an onward-marching bass line, even while slowing the pace down. Pulling away from an otherwise calm start, the boys turn the tempo up with a jiggy techno track in "Øyestikker'n". Meant for those more neurotic dance floor moments, it's still wrapped up in a waywardly deep atmosphere. The final track, "Blue Grass, Green Sky", is a mind blowing techno journey destined to take listeners out of their world in favor of the far flung cosmos, all the while occupying a place on the dance floor. It will leave anyone suspicious with doubts fully conscious of the meaning of the words: Dance Music Therapy.
