Max Essa dusts of his captain`s hat and pulls the tarps from his Glass Bottomed Boat. Tests the Spring waters, and takes her for a spin in readiness for Summer. On this occasion shying away from the hornpipe. The beach-side Discos of the Mediterranean and Adriatic. Leaving the champagne, cocaine, Jet Set hedonists ashore. Instead cutting the engines while at sea. Happy to just float. Take in the scenery. On vacation. Gone fishing. Drifting through chimes, orchestral strings, 1980s synthesised soundtracks, gentle 303 fractals, and slow, thoughtful sketches picked out on piano. Through nightfall, shooting stars. Steering a course between Akis` Erotica and Art Of Noise`s desert Island.
The eleven minute plus Themes From The Hood, The Cad, & The Lovely, makes Max`s previous chilled epic, Panorama Suite, sound like a Chicago Jack Track.
