Miranda Lintermans I like the variety of songs, the lyrics and the variety of amazing vocalists that express them. It's a great album to take with you for a run and it's a great album to immersive yourself in while sitting on the couch. My favorite tracks are Voodoo Love, Searching, New Times, Train of Thought, Dream Fever and City Flames. I picked Train of Thought as my favorite. I just like the free falling. The song does give a floaty feeling. Favorite track: Train Of Thought (ft. Kyoko Baertsoen).

marlon bonnici Couldn't write the long review I wanted to so I'll keep it short and sweet. Yet another brilliant and enjoyable album from an artist and artists I've come to consider essential whenever I hear they have a new release. Lot of love for Psy'Aviah! Favorite track: Voodoo Love (ft. Roeland van der Velde).

Peter Ford Stunning album from an archetect who builds polished sonic experience from a unique sound meshed with faultless vocal contributors. Yes it is that good, from a three score plus 10 who's difficult to please.

brianmccalmont In this day and age of streaming and (cough) "downloading" It's becoming a rare thing to find people who will actually buy music unless they find something exceptional. This is what I class as one of those albums. You can't classify this as a certain "genre" as it skips around most of them and mixes in guest vocals and (in the case of the remixes) guest artists as well who all add their own part to an already good album taking it that little bit further and making it stand out from the crowd. Favorite track: Hold On (ft. Mark Bebb) (Metroland 7" remix).

about

One of Belgium’s finest electronica trademarks over the last decade, Antwerp-based PSY’AVIAH aka Yves Schelpe returns with “Soul Searching”, by far his best album concept ever for a unique experience in sound, story-telling and emotions…

Through some 12 brand new songs, PSY’AVIAH transports us to the most remote unexplored places of his dreamscapes. A virtual otherworld where we can enter a state of mind allowing us to question our nostalgic or depressive thoughts, our insomniac behavior, our self-centered existence, humanity as a whole… Some kind of meditative trance triggered by pulsating electronic sequences, wrapped by highly melodic synth melodies, augmented by a wide palette of ethnic instruments facilitating the exotic traveling experience and topped by bewitching blissful male and female vocals reinforcing the hypnotic sensation.

Personal stories told with passion and interpreted by highly skilled singers in the likes of Mari Kattman, Kyoko Baertsoen (ex-HOOVERPHONIC & LUNASCAPE), Lis van den Akker, Ellia Bisker, Addie Nicole, Saydi Driggers, Alicia May, Roeland van der Velde, Marieke Lightband, Mark Bebb as well as psychiatrist Prof Dr. Dirk De Wachter speaking on the intro track “Becoming Human”. Poignant lyrics we can easily relate to and which evoke intimate moments of the listener or awake personal demons.

As always, PSY’AVIAH knows no boundaries and crafts music ranging from atmospheric floating ethereal songs to harder pumping industrial/EBM tracks through sensual trip hop, nostalgic synthwave and other catchy dance pop tunes. It’s electronic music without limits for your ultimate pleasure!

May this reflective soul-searching experience help you find your way in this tormented world!
A must for all fans of DELERIUM, AVICII, MASSIVE ATTACK, THE CHAINSMOKERS or DEPECHE MODE.

Faithful supporters of the band will enjoy the limited edition of “Soul Searching” and its 16-track bonus CD presenting carefully selected upbeat dancefloor oriented versions of album songs that will guide us to tomorrow land and further thanks to successful collaborations with artists like METROLAND, KGPROJECT, PEOPLE THEATRE, J. WOLF, STUDIO-X, SD-KRTR, 11GRAMS and so many more.

And... we have exclusive bonus designs and 2 remix kits waiting for you as well once the album is released here on Bandcamp.
