5.0 out of 5 stars Pure and honest electronic music from a superb talent.... Nov. 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you;ve seen the timeless classic Baghdad Cafe, directed by German left of center motion picture visionary, Percy Adlon you will instantly recognize the lead track (of the same name) on this stunning debut from Axus. With the vocals performed by Naomi Nisombi comes the same wonderful sense of freedom and liberty found in Adlon's masterpiece . The freedom to impress is certainly an imperative for A:xus (real name Austin Bascom, alias Abacus) who incorporates everything from deep house to downtempo to drum and bass with even a splash of Detroitish t echno on this smahing new release from Guidance. "My Planet Rocks" and "Pluto" represent Detroit with their stark Motor city beats and surreal chord washes. "Near or Far" incorporates the most beautiful vocals from Rosina and while essentially beatless would provide the perfect set starters. "Oceans between us" could have been produced by LTJ Bukem, while the title track is a clever melange of saved voicemail messages and shadowy abstract hip hop percussion. Pure and honest electronic music from a superbly talented artist-another classic from Chi-town's cutting edge Guidance. -XlR8R.

5.0 out of 5 stars Altogether an impressive debut... Nov. 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The long awaited debut set from Austin "A:xus" Bascom finally arrives from Chicago's highly productive Guidance Recordings. "Soundtrack To Life" fuses all the best parts of deep house with tinges of jazz, funk, ambient and garage to very good effect on vocal cut "Bagdad Café (Callin' U)" which features the vox of Namoi N'Sembi, you become enthralled by the warm creativity of this guy - who made his name with the production outfit A'ba-cus.Tunes such as "Raw Emotions", "Near Or Far", "Taxi Blues" and "Synchronicity" are all superb deep house grooves while Namoi N'Sembi again lends her tonsils on "Nice To See You Again" and the excellent "You Make Me Feel Like (Peace, Love & Happiness)" while the Nat King Cole penned "When I Fall In Love" works very well with a gorgeous vocal from Bratticus. Altogether an impressive debut, but typical of the quality to expect from Guidance Recordings. -Blues and Soul, London.

By "deltafront" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sweet. Soulfull. Thoughtfull. Introspective. Sensual.
Those five words describe this recording in a nutshell. Listen to this CD during a hot summers day while chilling with your friends - or better yet, a loved one; after a good listen, the last song will *definitly* help set the mood for better things to come, IYKWIM.

5.0 out of 5 stars ideal for the dancefloor or chill-out room... Nov. 22 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Guidance starts 2000 with the much anticipated debut LP release from Toronto-based producer Austin "A:xus" Bascom (fomerly Abacus). Featuring the rapturous underground hit "Callin' U," Soundtrack for Life is a subterranean urban panorama seamleassly blending lush deep house with sublime ambient textures, electro, soul, jazz and leftfield experimentation. The 13-track opus resonates with seductively hyupnotic songs ideal for the dancefloor or chill-out room. Flyer NYC.
