Ananda Project Night Blossom
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Nite Grooves–King Street
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
“Cascades of Colour,” a deep-as-indigo house track from nearly a decade ago, may be Ananda Project’s (a.k.a. Chris Brann’s) finest creation, but this two-disc collection of re-workings from 2007’s Fire Flower shines a warm new light on that album, Brann’s third. Most of the remixes will still be more at home on Ibiza-chill comps than among Om’s and Naked Music’s post-surf sprawl, but a diversity of rhythms and approaches from producers like Jay-J and Idjut Boys (with a nice take on “Moment Before Dreaming”) keep the groove from washing out. Still, the fully mixed Disc Two, touched by King Britt, Aquanote, and Kyoto Jazz Massive, is the more vibrant of the pair.
