"An exotic rhythmic garden; a melodic playland; an elegant harmonic journey; all this and more.... This inspired musical offering invokes sonic illusions reminiscent of the peerless work of Miles Davis during the late 60's and early 70's. Engagingly beautiful in every way. "
JORDAN DE LA SIERRA , POET/MUSICIAN SAN FRANCISCO/CALIFORNIA
"THIS MUSIC IS LIKE TAKING A BATH IN THE RIVER GANGES"
"There are many roads to success in music. This is an art form of the highest degree here! Artistic integrity is something that many players deal with. Everybody has a different agenda. Clive Stevens is a man of great integrity and amazing vision. This music of Clive's is like taking a bath in the river ganges. A cleansing of the spirit again. The spiritual nature of this disc is evident. It is beyond just a new CD. it is a divine commitment to the highest creativity. Words escape me on this new CD because Clive has created a Mona Lisa of an artistic statement. virtually all of the tracks have a strong initial melodic hook and a highly satisfying outcome. Take that the outcome is not only excellent but comfortable and expected. This music makes you feel good, and as Clive states in his own words, "This is a transformative album that blends future jazz , dance, electronica , downtempo , lounge ,World , dub and spoken word into a new fusion of contemporary global beats and sounds. I urge everyone to buy this CD and not only enjoy it but tell a friend. This CD is a must! This is truly a collaboration and AN amazing musical journey brought to you by very blessed talents. Let's hear more, Clive.What a profound and creative human being.."

"THE WORLD AND THE UNIVERSE ON A MAGIC CARPET RIDE"
"Listening to Clive Stevens new disc "Bacana Beat Club" is like travelling through the past , present and future.
He embraces us as he embraces the world , the universe on a magic carpet ride.He has brought together international musicians who give us guitar solos that remind us that rock is still alive. singers that remind us what real singers sing like. Rhythms that transport our physical bodies to dances that we may have forgotten about.
Clive is able to combine world instruments to perfectly mingle in compositions that are as new as they are ancient, with arrangements that are so sublime that only his spoken spiritual voice can bring us down to earth again.
In a world filled with so much strife , I am always reminded by him that hope is there for the taking."

"HIGHER DIMENSIONAL SONICS"
Since this CD was conceived by the ways of a mystic , enjoy the magic of specific tempos, rhythms , sound colours
and words. Definitely in the realm of a worldwide metaphysical journey, notice the dedication to Ascension ,The Galactic Federation of Light and first contact .This is music for the new earth.
