Album Review

After a year, Banco de Gaia (Toby Marks) returns with Igizeh, the full-length album on Six Degree Records. In the spirit of past Banco de Gaia efforts, Igizeh combines dancefloor European techno and chunks of global, ethnic snippets. The track "Gizeh" was recorded in the Great Pyramid, which in Marks' opinion, has great acoustics but not much atmosphere after its renovation. For "Gizeh," Marks adds to the global influence by using a Turkish clarinet to the keyboard sampled sounds.

Besides the instrumental being revamped, the updated version features the vocals of Portland's, Jennifer Folker.
