Pan Electric‘s Conscious Pilot assembles a cast of wonderful musicians including the award-winning jazz pianist Neil Cowley, Big Chill veteran The Fantastic Laura B, pedal steel legend BJ Cole and synth architect Ishq.

‘Navigator’ Matt Coldrick deftly steers influences from Steely Dan to William Orbit into an uplifting, gapless blend, opening with ambient textures and ending with Beach Boys-esque vocals.

Third in a series of five reissues of Matt’s classic ambient & downtempo work, this album has a unique and ambitious sonic palette that draws together musical loves from global electronica to British progressive rock. Its themes of consciousness, love and recovery are timeless, honest and optimistic.
