â€˜Idealismâ€™ is a gorgeous labor of love that will thrill diehard Daniel Wang and Balihu fans and undoubtedly open up a new album-oriented audience to his work. As with all Daniel Wang (and Environ) releases, it`s about the details: from the radical re-working of his rare 12inch tracks to the mastering by Don Grossinger (Salsoul, West End). Opening up with the spectacular vocoded intro of â€˜Let`s Go To Marsâ€™, the album stays in touch with Daniel`s fascination with the dancefloor and dubbed-out funk, disco and jazz. Rare tracks like â€˜Rings of Saturnâ€™ (of which only 150 white labels were distributed to DJs) and brand-new gems such as â€˜Ambiguityâ€™ showcase the spaced, sweaty pulses that made his unique 12s into club DJ`s crate classics. However, the acid-reggae epic â€˜Islandsâ€™ or his sci-fi Theremin cover of the jazz standard â€˜Mistyâ€™ makes this an ideal headphone listening album as well. NOTE: This is the original album, not the reissue!
