Elements Of Life – Total Eclipse of the Soul…

Elements Of Life - Eclipse EPMore than 25 years of indefatigable activism have got both Louie Vega and Josh Milan standing among the last defences against the gloom of a world in a growing search of points of reference. Their motto – spreading words of peace and love – would lead them to start collaborating together back at the end of the 90’s. Eventually giving birth to Elements Of Life back in 2004. Meanwhile delivering statements such as ‘A Better Day’, ‘Cerca De Mi’ and ‘Sunshine’. But also ‘Love Is On The Way’ or ‘Children of The World’. Not to mention ‘You Came Into My Life’ and ‘One Dream’ to name but a few…

From the ‘Eclipse’ album that saw the light back in March 2013, this EP of the name is just another episode of the Elements Of Life saga. Therefore showing the hearts of these two creators beating as one once again on deliberately inspiring messages. From ‘I Dream A World’ to ‘Live Your Life For Today’. And a rendition of Baden Powell and Vinícius de Moraes‘s classic ‘Berimbau’ which stands as a monument in the Brazilian folklore. A cut which Giancarlino Battafarano and Pierandrea Righetti brilliantly revamped under the form of ‘Berimbau de Osahna’. This back in 1997 under their Easydelics guise on UK label NRK.

Opening this new offering, ‘I Dream A World’ has both a title and lyrics speakin’ for themselves. Evoking “a place where Love is a lifestyle”, says the press release. With the wish that “music can bring us all one step closer to this vision becoming a reality…” A cut to which ‘Live Your Life For Today’ resonates as the perfect echo. “We live our lives on our own, in time we will grow. In life we should be positive. Show someone what loving is…” The evergreen ‘Berimbau’ with remix courtesy of Timmy Regisford and Adam Rios comin’ right on time to top the whole as the icing on the cake.

All in all, emotions in rhythm(s). Or, in other words, as many elements Elements Of (a good) Life, delivered in a whole bunch of different versions. This with remixing work courtesy of Timmy Regisford & Adam Rios, Sean McCabe, Jihad Muhammad. Not to mention Josh and Louie themselves…
