Further developing the collaborative element that had been such a liberating part of ‘Organik’, 2002 saw the release of a remix album, suitably titled ‘Organik Remixes’ which assembled reinterpretations of many of the original album tracks by a choice selection of leftfield and dance orientated artists including Future Sound Of London

Robert Miles & Trilok Gurtu – Miles Gurtu

Another element of ‘Organik’ explored further on ‘Miles-Gurtu’ is that of live playing and the album is rooted in a very 21st century reimagining of the classic Jazz trio featuring ex-Mahavishnu Orchestra member Trilok on drums and percussion, Jon Thorne, whose jazz-tinged work with Lamb had been so innovative, on double bass and Robert and Mike Patto on keyboards. Still further live input was provided by ‘Organik’ veteran Nitin Sawnhey on guitar and other players including Paul Falloon, Toshinori Kondo and The Urban Soul Orchestra. All of this is then given a further dimension by interacting with Robert’s cutting-edge electronics and superb production techniques.

Robert Miles – Organik

The record that emerged was a deeply personal and for Robert a cleansingly contemporary one. Darker, more leftfield and drawing on a far wider palette than anything which might have been envisaged at the close of ’23AM’, ‘Organik’ draws on the deepest exploration of his musical self and earliest influences thus far as well as reflecting to a certain extent the traumatic period from which he was finally emerging (as titles such as ‘Separation’ and ‘Release Me’ would suggest). All of this is further synthesised with the experiences of his recent travels. As Robert said at the time “I’ve seen and experienced a lot of different cultures and that has had an effect. It’s the interaction between European electronic music and other, more traditional sounds that fascinates me now.”

Robert Miles – Dreamland (The Winter Edition)

After the huge success of Children, not surprisingly, Robert had been hungrily snapped up by a major label, BMG’s ‘Deconstruction’ and temporarily escaping the media frenzy that had engulfed him returned to his bunker in Italy to finish the rest of what would become his first album ‘Dreamland’. On release ‘Dreamland’, which also includes the singles ‘One and One’ and ‘Fable’, was perhaps even more successful than ‘Children’ itself, racking up a mighty 16 platinum and 12 gold discs in 21 countries around the world. Industry plaudits naturally flowed and the following year (1997) Robert picked up a host of trophies including a Brit award (Best International Newcomer), two BMIs and a World Music award (Best Selling Male Newcomer of the Year). Wherever the peaks of the music world were to be found that year, Robert Miles was assuredly at the summit.

Robert Miles – 23am

“23am” is a splendid product of Robert Miles’ continuing growth as an artist. Comparing tracks from “Dreamland” to “23am” reveals new depth and appeal. Though it is among my favorite CDs, “Dreamland’s” tracks tend to share the same fundamental sound throughout the album. Robert Miles introduces greater variety in “23am”, providing each track with it’s own distinct character. The true value of this album is found by sitting back at the end of a long day, closing your eyes, and savoring it’s entire length. Robert Miles’ new sound is beautiful, yet unobtrusive. It fuels the imagination, and sets the mind at ease.

First of all, Dreamland, like 23 AM, is not trance. It does have the breakdowns, bass-driven beats, and melodies that are characteristic of trance, but it is definitely inaccurate to classify it as such. However, what can this musical beauty be classified as? But this should not deter anyone from purchasing this CD. As a trance and house lover, I more than encourage anyone to buy this CD. Honestly, anyone I have ever played Dreamland for has loved it. No one had complaints about it, except when it was played too much.

The music is like an emotional rollercoaster. “Children” sets an uplifting, inspiring tone, then “Fable” (although I prefer the non-vocal version) carries you off into musical bliss. The next few tracks are more mellow but still use the piano and bass beats to create a chill-out mood. Then, the “Princess of Light” begins and what follows is more like magic than music. See for yourself. The CD winds down with a more mellow remix of “Children” and “The Red Zone”, which is, along with the last two tracks (I like to think of them as one) on Tranceport3, the best track to end a CD I have ever heard.

Robert Miles takes you into a Dreamland with this CD, and I promise you that you will enjoy it, not once or twice, but many times. Also, play this CD like a trance CD for the first time by listening to the whole CD at once. I GURANTEE that you will embrace and love the musical journey Robert Miles guides you through. In other words, buy it right now.
