Original and purist Oliver Lieb sound.
John
O.Lieb has done it again putting together a collection of tracks that are all written, produced and mixed by him into a beautiful continous mix.
Filip Galiza
The sound is crisp and fresh, deep basses and kick drums, awash with gorgeous sounding synths and distorted synth samples.

This is Oliver Lieb's sixth album recorded under his LSG pseudonym: he records under more different titles than any other producer/musician you could care to mention - Spicelab and Paragliders are probably the best known. Recently he's remixed for Carl Cox, Faithless & DJ Tiesto.
Amongst his other work (and there is a lot, I mean a LOT) LSG stands out as being the best stuff - purely because it's so goddam tuneful! Tuneful and weird! This isn't your everyday trance, this is like a Cyborg Elgar on E. Despite all the critical acclaim from other DJs I'm amazed that Lieb hasn't hit the bigtime proper. Maybe because he's not one of those 'bang-em-out for the radio' techno producers.
Like I said, LSG is NOT DJ Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten or Art of Trance. Most of the 'normal' techno/trance producers clearly use cubase in a very obvious way, and get very obvious results (i.e. chart pap!!). Lieb creates an almost organic sound using his vast array of synths and analogue sequencers. The sound is crisp and fresh, deep basses and kick drums, awash with gorgeous sounding synths and distorted synth samples. And all wrapped up in hauntingly beautiful melodies.
The tracks are all 'segued' which means that they seamlessly link or fade into one another - something Lieb has done with all his CD releases.
1) Loose Ends - Weird synth noises, then big phat bassey synths, drums - the club track begins! Half the way through this nine minute track you'll have a big grin! Tech-trance heaven!
2) Down to Earth - starts with a massively funky techno groove, then come in with a tune that sounds anything but earthly: Close Encounters meets Tron!

Everyone wants to spin progressive house - or so it seems, with the glut of housey-trancey-breakbeaty mix compilations hitting shelves today. The sheen's off the big labels a little bit, and there's a very real danger of people getting - for lack of a better word - tired. Tired of listening to CD after CD that plays like a commercial compilation of "The Biggest House/Trance Tunes To Hit The Charts This Summer".
Enter LSG - The Hive.
This isn't a new release by any means. But I got to listen to it only a couple of days ago, and it made me remember a few things about dance music that I was maybe beginning to forget.
Number 1 - Sometimes, to explore the various NEW ways in which even a tried-and-tested genre of sound can move you, you need to go to the source. Producers & their full length compositions, not mix CDs.
Number 2 - The bass may make you groove to it, the beat may get you hopping... but no matter how cheesy you think it may be, melody made you call it music in the first place. When a composer treats the melody with respect, and gives it the necessary treatment by layering it over synths, draping it along dark, percussive basslines and giving it that occasional anabolic steroid boost of dancefloor mania, the melody WORKS. Period.
This particular composer is perhaps one of the most consistent of his breed, and The Hive adds to that reputation in no small measure. Yes, it's trance - trance that rolls over you in magnificient, thunderous tidal waves. Yes, it's danceable - I can easily see individual tracks from this CD making it on to hardcore dancefloor focused mix albums. Yes, it's mixed - and sequenced so beautifully to form a flowing, one-hour soundscape that I'm not going to try to pick stand-out tracks.

Deeeelicious. Original and purist Oliver Lieb sound. He delivers the entire album onto a 134bpm plate worthy listening to over and over again. His sounds are very unique and vivid with the right weight in building the tracks. The tracks are also perfect in length to set the mood and subsequently meshed together delicatly. Evolutionary, rather than revolutionary the Hive is worthy of much proper attention compared to many cookie-cutter heavy progressive juggernauts out there stealing the spotlight. I was looking for originality and it seems that Mr. Lieb has his own drum beat ;) 5 stars, no doubt!

People looking for a terrific, trancey, imaginative single-artist full-length cd seem to be picking up in droves the "long-awaited" solo effort by a well-known British dj. That disc is good, certainly, but hey, folks, "The Hive" is even better, and yet sadly, it remains virtually unknown and unheard.
German producer/composer/dj Oliver Lieb has been producing first-rate electronic music for years now, using various aliases to create different styles of ranging from experimental (as Spicelab) to trancey dance (as Paragliders) to high-energy trance (as Ecano), techno (as Ivan), plus other words released under such monickers as S.O.L., Mindspace, and The Ambush. Some of his very best work, however, has been his series of releases as l.s.g. Lieb/l.s.g. is imaginative, deep trance at its best, and his latest full-length l.s.g. cd, "The Hive," may be his best yet.
The style here is progressive techno-trance, and although there are twelve distinct compositions, Lieb has sequenced and mixed the tracks so that the whole flows seamlessly as a single extended sonic journey. Lieb is uniquely capable of creating emotionally charged electronic music characterized by imaginative and ever-changing textures and beats. No one is more skilled or creative than Lieb in the use of synthesizers; the soundscapes he creates in these tracks are truly breathtaking. As with all great music, one's appreciation can grow as a result of multiple playings. The music throughout includes "hooks" that will grab listeners from the first hearing, and yet it is sufficiently complex that each new exposure will reveal new intricacies and patterns-within-patterns.
I cannot recommend this cd highly enough. You who currently are raving over Sasha's "Airdrawndagger" should definitely give "The Hive" a spin; you won't regret it.
