"Ataraxia": "a state of serene calmness." An appropriate title for two tracks that epitomize Simon Garcia's singular vision of the hypnotic potential of house. Following his residency at Madrid's MOTEL club and high praise from an array of luminaries including Laurent Garnier, Garcia's "Ataraxia" opens with a pounding kick and busy hats before a slow crescendo of drones and pulsing synths. "A Hot Drink in the Desert" casts a tropical feel with its bustling beat and dancing xylophone. This is soon disrupted by high-frequency Hitchcockian drones, ominous piano strokes, and undulating bass tones, taking the tune into haunting soundtrack territory.
