La Mila received beautiful gifts of melodies, sound and instrumental powers through their dreams. They have defiantly searched their lucid state to find the beauty of magic and mysticism. La Mila is a lovely new musical project by the Belgian based human hosts, Wouter Nottebaert and Tom Moons. These two sound scientists seem to have a wide understanding of electronic dance music, as Wouter has a SAE sound-engineering degree from Brussels and is reported to be the main man behind the magnificent melodies played throughout the whole journey; and Tom steps in with his talent and respected expertise within the psytrance scene as DJ Jharu where he played for about 10 years on the world’s biggest Psytrance Festivals. These guys got the experience combined to make your vivid dreams become lucid, there is no question about it!
In their debut- Search Your Dream- you are thrown into a delightful paradise of complex melodies running along with beautiful sounds and some of the more impressive instrumental usage I have heard lately, ranging from native instruments like bamboo sticks-like sounds, piano, bongo drum, flutes and a didgeridoo play by Federico Petrei in track 4, to a heavy electric guitar solo by Frank Arras in track number 5. All this is topped with some of the better voice samples and synthesizer work I’ve heard in this sort of funky full-on dance music. The different chorus samples throughout the album are truly impressive! It’s all sugarcoated in dripping sunshine to give one the hope and smile we all deserve for a united energy. The instrumental usage together with blissful melodies inside these dreams are key elements for me to recommend this to all of you with glowing hearts out there, searching for a fresh full-on psychedelic adventure with soul, pleasure and truth. If you like it pumping and driving, charming and cool, moaning and smiling and easy listening, this album has the touches you crave. Fear it can be too cheesy? I would say it can border the cheese fall, but in all honesty, this is the kind of cheese we all need in our life sometimes to feel a happy vibe, its delightful and you won’t put on weight, on the contrary, it will make you lose some pounds because it will make you move, dance and wave your arms and feet like the carnival of lemon sunshine dreams where upon you. The eye-catching lime fresh album art is creatively thought out by Griet Van Den Bosch and the album is released on Naturall Productions, where one of the musicians, Mr. Moons is the label manager. This also happens to be the labels debut release.
