    This Heat's "It's Madness" is a 1940s film noir introduction to Tilted Horizon(es); it rhythmically projects dark, chilling, and hollow orchestral formations onto the blank wall of a dark room. Mahmoud Ahmed's Afro-pop is smoothly invoking a hallucinated image of the late 1950s to early 1960s when there was much more jazz in music. The next is Liquid Liquid, a post-punk outfit from Brooklyn which was active in the early 1980s and famous for its captivating rhythmic impulse. When they feel erotic, as they probably do in "Eyes Sharp", Liquid Liquid begins to caress the snares. In "Come Sta, La Luna," Can is doing kraut-tango. Perhaps I may be committing a true sacrilege in even considering this but I could not help but wonder, as I was listening, how a Gotan Project remix of this mechano-romantic kraut-tango tune would sound like!

    We are now on the American continent from South to North, first moving our hips to the beats of the Peruvian Juaneco Y Su Combo, then to the smooth boogie of Marcia Griffiths's "Feel Like Jumping." From Jamaica, we are back to the Africa when the Muziqawi Silt fills the speaker with the solid groove of the Ethiopian the Wallias Band.

    As the mix continues to its journey into its second half hour, it becomes easier to discern the location of the central void that Untel is encircling around: Somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. With Tom Waits, we arrive to the hometown of the African diaspora in North America, to New Orleans. In the instrumental "Raining in My Heart", Robert Wyatt plays the piano, sentimentally yet briskly bringing us into a dance hall from the inter-war Britain.

    Next is "Mr. Lennie Tristano" by Ulrike Haage. Haage elegantly structures the cool jazz of Italian-American composer Tristano with a skeletal beat. The sultry vocalists of Lovage duet through a Bristolian trip hop tune ("Lifeboat") with all the requisite wheening guitars and the splashy snairs. But without a doubt the zenith of the mix is when a very handsome Iggy Pop croons to a deliricious Françoise Hardy in "I'll Be Seeing You."

    The Irish neo-folk of Fred Frith is followed by the Arab blues of Boubacar Traoré; a short snippet of conversation from Italian, perhaps stolen from a film, but found in a Tuxedomoon release is followed by the only appropriate closure to this most accomplished mix: an anthemic and shamanic Sun City Girls.

    Tilted Horizon(es) is a highly recommended archeology of contemporary Atlantic music.
