  1. Colleen - Everyone Alive Wants Answers truly mesmerizing ambient/post-ambient/experimental album Colleen is a gal from France, her sound is melancholic, hazy and dusty, consisting mostly of repetitive vintage loops, tape hiss and crackles! Perfect for slow weekend mornings and sleepy moments.
  2. you're right, missed that one... the weird thing is that it does not mention the new compilation
  3. Congrats on your release guys! Advertise it as much as you can Also, a good idea would be to start a myspace website for Cosmic Flower! peace
  4. I would suggest sticking with Lime Structure and avoiding Archipelago and Tributaries, unless you enjoy a more commercial/clubby sound.
  5. So...the fest is over. Back to reality... The lineup proved to be exactly what was needed for such a place. We're talking here for one seriously beautiful beach!! The Ultimae team mesmerized us with their unique sound, I really can't distinguish anyone, HUVA, Aes Dana, Solar Fields, CBL, Asura, all of them were excellent and very appropriate for that time and place. Youth earned our respect yet again, for his devotion to good music. His dub set was fantastic, playing tunes from Celtic Cross, Kumba Mela, Dub Trees and Youth in Dub projects. His live appearance with the newly formed Vertical Smile band was so entertaining, giving the live band feel and energy that is usually missing from such events. It was great seeing the veteran hold his bass again and playing it out loud... The japanese...what can we say about them? Who would have thought that we would enjoy Uni playing live with drums (and in fact TWICE in the same festival?!). Japanese psy trance overflowing with energy, and thats a fact! As for Kay Nakayama, he really surprised everybody with his live set, a very intelligent set flowing from groovy sounds to psychedelic atmospheres, from breakbeats and intricate patterns to 4/4s and dancing rhythms. Stunning! And of course, Kenji Williams did what he does best, covered the place with his atmospheric violin melodies accompanied by his dancing wife, what a sight... The usual chill suspects delivered as expected (and even more I would say) since both Abakus and Tripswitch played very fresh music which I am really eager to get my hands on! For nostalgic guys (like me) listening to California Sunshine playing was an experience like no other. Needless to say, Har-El played all the classic tunes from that golden Goa era. Sadly I missed MFG, and I heard afterwards that I missed another good trip down the memory lane... The big surpsise for me was I M LGND. Anna played a stunning set, ranging from avand-garde electronica (Autechre, FSOL) to drum & bass (4-5 killer tunes that I will definately have to track down). I'm sure I am forgeting many other great moments (Gabriel Le Mar played an excellent groovy prog/minimal set), but quality-wise it was like condensing a 5 days festival in 3 days. It's a lot to take in!! I also want, as Fabrics, to thank all the people who listened to our dj+live set, moving, nodding and dancing to the music. We respect you for that. All in all, the high quality and variety of the music as well as the perfect setting of the festival left the best of memories to me. It was a small fest (around 400-500 people) and that made it feel like a cozy private beach party. Really good vibes from the people that gathered. We had a great time in Lemnos and I hope this was the beginning of even bigger and even better things. :drama:
  6. Fabrics: http://www.myspace.com/fabricsgr electronica/idm/ambient (mostly!) Our first digital release is coming in the next few days! :posford:
  7. nicely done guys! we can't wait for the release a small suggestion: a more properly syntaxed title, "kids of the sun" or (even better for me) "children of the sun" peace & music :drama:
  8. So...how many tracks does the compilation have by now? Is it not getting a little too big? Have you considered splitting it into two compilations/projects (perhaps with a concept theme, so that they are complementary), that can be released with a relatively small time gap between them? Just a suggestion! cheers!
  9. Hello guys, I hope I'm not too late, I've just sent you a megaupload link to a demo track for your new compilation. It's from a new project I've started together with a friend, called Fabrics. We hope you like the track! In any case, let us know what you think. You can also find us at http://www.myspace.com/fabricsgr Good luck with the new comp!
  10. hi all, together with a friend we have started a project, called Fabrics, with a focus to completely unfocused electronic music. Basically we write anything that grabs our attention... I know I couldn't be more vague, so if you like check http://www.myspace.com/fabricsgr to hear a sample of our music. Feedback is much appreciated! Thanks.

  12. I use a pair of Genelec 8020A (the small ones!) and I'm totally satisfied with them. Very convenient and very precise. It could be that I got used to them but the 8020s sound fine to me (given their small size).
  13. Labyrinth was grand. If the new album is a continuation of this Bible of Dreams / Shango integration (maybe with a new twist) I say bring it on...
  14. one of my favourite ambient/chill albums as well...

  16. hello guys & gals, I would appreciate some feedback on this tune: Spinnet - Coretex (Tek Mix) I would classify it as techno-trance let me know what you think cheers
  17. wow! This is cool, reminds me a bit of the Timber video by Coldcut.
  18. Sweet album! Nicely programmed beats (IDMish) and melodies that strongly remind me of video game music (of the SNES / Mega Drive era). so...the ideal album for IDM fans who still cherish their 16-bit games consoles?
  19. At long last a refreshing release that breaks the psychill conformity! Infused with IDM elements (and yes, Edit - Laundry is a great track!) but keeping its dubby and atmospheric colors. Celestial Dragon hits the spot with this one, the most interesting compilation I've heard in a long while.
  20. NHJOHYENNRO, please do not EVER stop posting in psynews, we need you here!!
  21. We had a really nice, easy-going night... Fishimself played a really smooth selection of tunes... check out a small review and some pics (as soon as I upload them) here: http://geocities.com/coffee_bar_aldebaran/ This night was some sort of an unofficial beginning of the "digital utopia" sunday afternoon sessions that I'm starting this sunday (and following every sunday, from 4pm to 8 pm more or less). I'll have 3 retail & promo cds to give away every sunday, thanx to the support of IT Record Shop. thanx 4 the support guys, both physically (agia_igoumen & alex) and mentally (gnome & unikos)
  22. hey unikos, it was an interesting event, the best parts being: 1) the live performance of spyweidos together with his professor (mourjopoulos, keys) and a veteran sax player (floridis). The sound was kind of experimental jazz (really weird sounds made by the sax!) on top of the great beat programming of spyros. It sounded a bit ...disconnected but it definately has potential 2) Pamelia Kurstin, live theremin concert. You really have to see her playing the theremin... It is simply jawdropping. Pamelia uses a couple of samplers and distortion effects, so she records on the fly some loops that she likes while improvising, building slowly an entire twisted and distorted theremin concert!! 3) VGO, videogame orchestra. Really funny!! about Metronique, as you will know there was a mixup with his plane ticket and he didn't make it (Nick was so pissed...)
