In 1998, Japanese digital artist and composer Osamu Sato conceived LSD: Dream Emulator as an alternative to the mindless adventure games¬†available for the Sony Playstation at the time. It was an open-world concept in which the player¬†"explores surreal environments without any objective"... pretty much exactly what the title describes. It was a cult hit but never made any major waves in the gaming world, which was itself still a (relatively) niche subculture by today's standards. 20 years later, Sato has revisited the game's iconic soundtrack for its first vinyl release, touching up the tracks and adding on a slew of remixes from the original CD release with a few new ones as well, with heavy hitters¬†like Morgan Geist, Mike Paradinas aka ¬Ķ-Ziq, Jimi Tenor, Japanese techno hero Ken Ishii, Hyperdub chiptune-techno alchemist Quarta330 and more rounding out the list of personnel. All of Sato's originals are dripping with heavy 90s Warp vibes; "Funky Solution," "Fax Factory" and "Oriental Grill" all sound like some of RDJ or Squarepusher's more playful bass-driven¬†braindance, while "Fried Banana," "Professional Problem" and "Long Tall Eyelash"¬†recall some of the deeper, more introspective fare from the Artificial Intelligence series. I'm actually more taken¬†with Sato's immaculate and¬†meticulously-programmed original score than most of the remixes, although Morgan Geist's chillout room-primed mix of "TV River" and the Pantunes mix of "Professional Problem" are pretty hot. 20 tracks in total, spread across three red colored LPs housed in a deluxe three-panel gatefold. Def one of the craziest records to come across my desk in a long time.
