Review

The Main Stem, a Birmingham based trio of disciples from the british disco neo disco university, have steadily and quietly honed their art with dubby refixes of disco tracks and beyond, fine remixes for labels like ” is it balearic?” and now get the proper platfrom provided by Prins Thomas to present their original material. Enlisting the help of two live drumers this sounds like a magic jam session night of early Pink Floyd or Hawkwind with Lee Perry at the mystic Black Ark studios: after an intro of swirling synth atmospherics and guitar licks they feel their way into an hypnotic, earthy groove with loose offbeat rhythm guitar chords giving it an skankin quality; guitar licks, synth loops and cosmic atmospherics fly around on top for a while before they take it to whole other level in the later part with orgiastic string backings and entrancing electric piano lines. PRINS THOMAS opts for a faster straighter and funkier groove, rebuilds and condenses the originals guitar chords, synth strings plus is own delicate additional touches into a truly intense blissfull rework.
