Michel Sanchez is a member of Deep Forest. This solo CD was recorded in 1994. Of course, it`s not as good as “World Mix”, “Boheme” or “Music Detected”, but this CD much more interesting than other albums by Deep Forest. It starts from dynamic song “Tholos”. Tholos means a kind of mysterious sanctauries or tombs, which were built from gigantic stones in Europe in Neolithic Age. The album is a mix of dynamic and slow light instrumental electronic melodies with many samples of ethnic singing (one thing is bad – there are no any commentaries by Sanchez or references to the sources of this samples). If such an album was recorded, say, by David Byrne or Eno it could be a sensation! So if you like early Deep Forest – you would like this CD. A must for every fan of DF.

Michel Sanchez (Deep Forest) – Hieroglyphes

Michel Sanchez, who also gave us the infectious “Deep Forest” albums, is a master talent. His previous solo outing, “Windows,” was one of my favorite albums of 1998, so I couldn’t wait to get my ears on this new release. Believe it or not, this new record, “Hieroglyphs,” makes the wild and wonderful “Windows” seem almost tame by comparison. Think of what might happen if there were a collaborative effort among Weather Report, New York Voices, Cirque du Soleil, and Rob Mounsey’s Flying Monkey Orchestra — all pumped up on steroids — and you begin to get the idea. Sanchez, with his amazing ability to mesh various musical styles and vivid tone colors (not to mention his impeccable keyboard virtuosity), will turn your ear every which way but loose! While “Deep Forest” fans may or may not be able to keep up, Sanchez definitely runs ahead of the pack on this one!
