MJ Lallo is practically invisible on Discogs. But this lady has been active in music production / post-production for over forty years. Once a Hi-Energy star, MJ is now, amongst other things, a respected voiceover artist. Coaching others in the characterisation of animated heroes and villains. The voice is MJ`s thing. On the three tracks on this Seance Centre “Maxi” 12, her`s moves from ethereal sighs to a muezzin`s drone. Wordless scat, whooshing winds, and birdsong. The low “Om” of a Buddhist chant. Dominican / Gregorian prayer. Appearing as a multi-tracked choir. Or imitating a trumpet solo. The accompanying electronic instrumentation incorporating elements of Electro-Boogie. PPU`s Psychic Mirrors busted up on love. The Jazz-Funk of Loft favourites, Atmosfear. Machine percussion rattling like the Rai I was on about a week or so ago. Aquarius Blue occupies similar musical territory as the stylish Art Pop of Dip In The Pool. The nova Bossa Nova of Antena. Appropriately conjuring images of a lazy float on azure waters. On Deep Dreams a distant drum keeps a blissed-out tempo. A happy heartbeat that twins the track with Sth. Notional`s Yawn Yawn Yawn (itself about to be reissued by Archeo, with some stellar remixes). Crystalline New Age synths mixing with gentle harp-like glissando. Woven together by MJ`s siren`s call. Soothing, and steering you away from, rather than towards, those rocks that life might throw your way.
