Astral Waves (aka DJ Zen) of Altar Records is known for his 2007 release of “Mystique” and having released numerous singles to well-known labels such as Altar, Peak, Sellaband, Sunline, Suntrip Records, and YSE over the past decade. Now Zen returns in force with his second full-length Astral Waves release, “Magique”. Zen takes years of growth and experience paired with much valued input from talented artists such as Vibrasphere, Astropilot, CJ Catalizer, Suduaya, Zymosis, and Tentura and puts his evolved skills and knowledge to work remixing original tracks supplied by these artists. “Magique” is comprised of eight tracks. Each is reworked from top to bottom including the use of live drum samples taken in his studio and the lovely voice of Iz. This album is sure to please a wide spectrum of music lovers, from ambient chillers to psychedelic and progressive heads.
Katrina and the Waves were a British-American rock band best known for the 1985 hit "Walking on Sunshine". They also won the 1997 Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Love Shine a Light".
The only real problem with One Way Records' anthology on Katrina & the Waves is that it gives too much room to their first Capitol album (which ought to be out as a free-standing CD) and not enough to their later material. Anyone seeking to go further should track down this imported disc. Thanks to EMI's acquisition of the SBK label, for which the band recorded in 1989, and its merger with Virgin Records, for which the Waves recorded in the early '90s in Germany, this collection has a little range and depth, although it's still just a greatest-hits collection – if it were a best-of, it would also have to include some of their Attic Records sides from before their signing to Capitol. In addition to the eight songs off of the first Capitol album, there are four more off of Waves, including "Lovely Lindsey" (the one glaring gap in the One Way release).
