REVIEWS:

Vital Weekly:
This the third release by Illuminati, aka Dave Clarkson from Manchester, who's 'Ocean Almanac' was reviewed in Vital Weekly 428, which was a pleasant distraction from the usual ambient flock. On 'Searching For The New Land' he continues his ambient explorations through the use of digital synths (perhaps software synths), sparse rhythms and occasional field recordings. The initial fun of a somewhat rawer version of ambient is gone here, but the eight lengthy tracks are still quite ok. Great music to chill out too, even when it's lesser sophisticated than the "real" ambient music. Cloud of cosmic music pass by, and synthesizer sound swirl in and out of the mix. A touch of darkness and surrealism add to the fun of it all. Nice soundtrack music for your home halloween movies. Chilly chill out. Influenced by Conrad Schnitzler with an interest in some techno related ambient music. Nighttime music. (FdW)

Side Line magazine:
The 3rd album for Dave Clarkson under the Illuminati moniker. Behind this occult band name hides a pure minimal sound combining experimental collages and ambient soundscapes. A few electro bleeps have been added now and than, which make it all a bit more accessible although this is the minimal sound of the underground! (DP:2/3) DP
