A special album created by Taka Noda aka Mystica Tribe from Japan. Island Oasis features 8 dubbed out tracks that reverberate through the forest. Featuring an analogue mix down and mastering on tape through a Studer A80, ½ inch tape machine by Stefan Betke of Scape Mastering.
It’s the Japanese producer’s first appearance on the long-running Canadian label, which usually specializes in dub techno and ambient. This time, the focus is on pure dub, part of a new series and eventual spin-off label for Silent Season. Label boss Jamie McCue and Noda became friends shortly after the latter’s debut release, Meditation Stick, in 2011, and Noda had wanted to make a “live-feeling” dub record, and the making of it included a trip from Japan to Canada to soak in the natural surroundings that have had such an influence on Silent Season. – Resident Advisor
