This is exactly what new EP, The Fallen, from OCD does. A couple of pups from South Africa, OCD have announced themselves as a pair of bright young things with this new Free-Spirit Records release. As Dillan M and Octoclutch, they did their time as individual contributors to the scene both in their home country and current reside London but since coming together as a duo they have fully let loose their creative abilities. Re-imagining the world and re-fashioning it into a package that brings a new definitive to full-on psychedelic trance. The four tracks on this EP each a separate entity, each standing alone, each standing out. There being no theme here rather you enter one realm indulge in all its delights step out of it and bang you are into another, very different to the last but of equal joy and wonder. This continuing through all four tunes so that by the end the experience has been massive. Title track, The Fallen, has a cheeky sample that will resonate long after listening and surely result it being one that will be played and played for years to come, check it out for yourself and you’ll know what I mean. Also included is a homage to OCD’s new surrounds at Free-Spirit Records, remixing label fave Tron’s Evolution Revolution; lifting the searing beauty of the original and infusing it with renewed energy so that it soars anew. All-in-all the EP’s total actuality is something that will result in it being an icon for years to come as these two continue on their journey, one they have only just begun. The Fallen, by OCD, come and get it. ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ --O.C.D --- BIO OCD is a collaborative full on project between Dillan M and Octoclutch Recently formed duo OCD are Dillan M and long time friend Alan Gross (Octoclutch) both from the motherland South Africa. Both now based in London town, feeding at the bosom of psychedelic trance, OCD are blasting upwards. Already with releases on labels Free-Spirit Records, Antu Records and Flying Spores Records, it was only a matter of time before they hit the stages of world taking their enthusiastic, infectious and upbeat sound to the masses. There is a certain sunniness to the OCD interpretation of psychedelic trance, and considering their birthplace its probably not surprising, and whilst it is also complex and intelligent it is the lightness of mood that is generated that directly characterises who they are at the moment, relaxed, unforced positivity emanating from their wonderful diversity. A meeting of like minds therefore as OCD take to the podium for years to come… Journey – Ghost Radio (OCD RMX) – (Free-Spirit Records) OCD v Static Flow – Rhythm on a Clock – (Antu Records) http://free-spiritrecords.com/artists/ocd/ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ :: Booking Opportunities :: We are always looking for quality promoters and production crews worldwide to host Free Spirit CD Release Parties and also Free Spirit Records Label parties.

A musician since his early teens, hailing from Miami, Florida, USA, Vince majored in Audio Engineering at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale where he studied Recording and Mixing. Having moved to the UK in the late nineties in order to immerse himself in the underground psychedelic scene/culture,he then released Outsider / Induction Ritual on Psylevation Records under the Pagan Technologies moniker. This release featured two of his compositions and included additional engineering and production by Dick Trevor. Critically lauded, and played by DJs such as Shane Gobi, Tristan, Antaro and Captain Kairos, among others, he eventually went on to co produce Arch Fiend’s Shock Hazard. This was a collaboration with Paul Wright of Deviant Species / RAM, which was released on the seminal Alchemy Records compilation Electrum. Soon afterwards, he continued his mutation into Savage Circuit and began performing at many key underground parties and events in London, becoming a notorious regular staple as a live act on the underground psychedelic scene. In July of 2012 he released his debut ep, Crosstalk, on Alchemy Records, which showcased the deep, hypnotic, driving style he developed and perfected throughout his tenure as a live performer . Combining a hybrid approach using analogue and digital synthesizer and studio technology with computer generated 21st century tribal rhythms, his sound is driving, acidic and bouncy. Soaring melodies reminiscent of Goa combine with brutal machine rythms, which further collide with punchy basslines and hypnotic atmospheres. His music encompasses a vibe that is equally both nightime psychedelic, and morning full on. Designed to be played loud in the jungle or forest. The twilight zone with an extra dash of esp and post hypnotic suggestion.

In 2009 he started producing progressive under the name Omsphere. In 2004, Jay conceived the vision of a network of like-minded artists in the psy-trance, progressive and ambient genres, all working to promote themselves and each other under one banner.

In early 2009 he was signed to upcoming UK label Furthur Progressions www.facebook.com/furthurprog CIMI has been a work in progress for a few years now.

Label dj for Etnicanet Records until 2004, he then moved to Neurobiotic and Free-Spirit Records while also acting as an event promoter, co-founder of the legendary Fairy Tales parties. His passion for digital production eventually gave birth to CIMI, a crossover project between full on and progressive psytrance. CIMI's first tracks appeared in compilations by Alchemy Records, Point Zero Records and Y.S.E. The project was put on hold until late 2008 while Marcello was focusing on M-Theory with his former partner Rob.

His interest in music started early on in his life at the age of 9, when he began studying classical music theory which soon evolved into playing saxophone for the citys orchestra and a teenage rock band. At 15, he discovered Hardcore and Techno music and after only a couple of years it became clear that his passion for music wasnt going to stop there. Aged 20 he became a member of the Hardcore Legacy Dj Team and performed in different clubs in North Italy and Switzerland. In the summer of 2003 Imry started following free psychedelic trance parties in around Italy and the UK and by 2004 realized that he had a real passion for Psytrance, a passion that pushed him to look deep into the different sub genres of the style to select high quality music. After moving to London in 2006, his love for psy trance continued to increase and in 2010 the Imry project was born. Imry found real inspiration within psygressive and fullon where very strong baselines and trancey riffs brought to life his emotion and love for this sound. To date Imry has performed at various London events including Progressline, Auralphonix and Itzama Crew and internationally at festivals including cK Festival in Tenerife, Spain and Sundance Boutique Festival in Antalya, Turkey. In addition to DJing, Imry is also working in studio on the release of his first EP. Imrys production style is influenced by artists such as Omsphere, Techyon, Gaudium and Protonica who blend progression with power to bring the listeners to the next level of psychedelic experience. Having joined Free-Spirit Records in late 2012, Imry has recently been appointed as A&R for the label and is ready to embark on the next stage of his musical journey supported by other authentic Free-Spirits.

Clearly inspired by the experience he is now about to launch the follow up, the EP Heliocentric, on Free-Spirit Records. Operating in the psy-chill sphere, StereOMantra produces enduring pieces of music that despite the throttled bpms contain many of the characteristics the more energetic ends of the spectrum do. Yes, while other-worldly and ethereal in nature so too does there bristle emotions threatening to break out and engulf the listener. Consisting of four tracks there clearly exists a progression from beginning to end with the final location distinctly distant to the beginning one. Cleverly hidden early it is by the final tune that the mood breaks wide open and a sense of enlightenment becomes apparent. What is this enlightenment? My interpretation is that it is hidden in the name of the EP. As a model of the universe heliocentricism has the Sun at the centre round which all celestial bodies, including the earth, rotate but StereOMantra is debunking this theory by exhibiting there exists too other intangibles on metaphysical level determining our day-to-day experience so to have only one entity at the middle is overly simplistic and without philosophical consideration. Well that was my enlightenment at least, what will be yours? ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ stereOMantra - Bio StereOMantra is Robert Rohaly, a Hungarian music composer from Budapest. After years of classical piano studies he made his first electronic music compositions in the 90′s, experimenting with Impulse Tracker and even older DAWs and gradually developed to an advanced level through related studies and much practice. From the start he has believed that art and science meets most perfectly in psytrance and has experimented with different kinds of related genres through the years until finally finding that progressive psy chillout is the most suitable for him, capable of expressing deep feelings of a wide range. Mostly inspired by chill artists like GMO & Dense, Labs Cloud, Aes Dana, Ascent & Argus, CBL and Solar Fields, now he is trying to raise prog psy chill to a new level, bringing gentle new atmospheric trippy chill sounds to you ears. Balancing on the border of popular chill and psychedelic culture he tries to bring the best of both worlds together, doing that with the aim of destroying the boundaries and building up deep connections amongst his listeners. ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ :: Booking Opportunities :: We are always looking for quality promoters and production crews worldwide to host Free Spirit CD Release Parties and also Free Spirit Records Label parties.

Their latest, an EP called Into the Vortex, comes from Free-Spirit’s core featuring two co-productions from its stalwarts who’ve been there from day one, Journey and Tron. Journey is based in London and Tron from Mexico and they are both at the epicentre of the scene out there doing the hard yards lapping up influences and influencing others in equal measure. Their tunes a direct reflection of that on-the-ground presence, a summation of the sounds of the city wrapped in universally relevant dynamism. Progressive by nature the characteristics that stand out greatest are the richness of texture, of the constituent elements, and the clarity of their definition. So that their music comes across as other worldly, the product of artificial intelligence from enlightened beings but still drawing on primal human urges. The confluence of these two life forces, the alien and the inherent, providing an invigoration that impacts on both the physical and the metaphysical of the partaker. Offering a form of sustenance and ensuring that within the vortex of our lives we are at peace. ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ -- BIO's -- -- TRON -- Tron’s style is unique in psychedelic trance, with fusions that go from morning funky to the most psychedelic consistent sounds; which makes his style fit anytime on the dancefloor. Born in 1981 in Mexico City, he has a long carreer on classical guitar. Started producing trance in early 2000 and 2 years later he was playing in clubs and gatherings all around Mexico. His first release Existence was released with Liquid Records, based in London in January 2006, and had raving reviews and excellent feedback. His second full lenght Bio-Logic was released on 2009 placing him fully on the international scope as one of the leading figures in the trance scene worldwide. Between his colaboration projects there is "The ART conspiracy" (with Psymmetrix), "Blind Roller" (with Mood Deluxe), "Floating Point" (with Dj Pollyfonika), and a couple more within other styles of dance music. He has collaborated with lots of artists and played in countless festivals, and clubs all over the world. -- JOURNEY aka Jay OM -- Journey (Jay OM / Omsphere / Sonic Wave Control) is the psychedelic solo project of, Milan born but now London based, Giampiero 'Jay' Mastino, label manager of Free-Spirit Records. I have said it before and I will say it again, Jay OM must surely be the hardest working man in psychedelia. He’s label boss for Free-Spirit Records - which this coming year celebrates its 10th anniversary - plays and produces under multiple guises – Journey/ Omsphere/ Sonic Wave Control - performs as one or many of these all over London, Europe and the world plus he’s a successful party promoter. Coming from Italy, Jay hails from a vinyl background having first encountered it whilst working in a local radio station and then gigging in the trance scene in London in the late 90s. The skills developed as a result making for a polish that is immediately apparent when he jumps behind the decks. So too is the absolute dedication to the trade that keeps him highly occupied which combined with an enthusiasm for sharing his passion ultimately makes him more than just a man playing a few tunes. Rather, an energy radiates from his soul cascading into all corners of the environment he dwells, enrapturing all participants so that they too are invigorated by his lust for life and music ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ :: Booking Opportunities :: We are always looking for quality promoters and production crews worldwide to host Free Spirit CD Release Parties and also Free Spirit Records Label parties.

  9. Track Listing: 1) Temporary Paradise 2) Wall Of Voodoo 3) Ampliflyer (Feat. Razzek) Mastered by Giampiero Mastino aka Jay OM Killah Mastering Studios, London N22 www.facebook.com/killahmasteringstudios Listen to samples: https://soundcloud.com/free-spirit-records/sets/savage-circuit-temporary-paradise-ep-free-spirit-records-1 Released Exclusively on Beatport from the 25/11/2014 General Release 09/12/2014 Genre: Psychedelic Progressive Trance Cat No: FSR0056EP Worldwide distribution by INgrooves, San Franciso, CA Tel: +1 415 489 7000 http://www.INgrooves.com/ Thoughts from Australia by DMG It is easy to see the point of three track EPs; there are no fillers, intros, progressions or journeys, rather bang you are into it and boy that bang is sudden and explosive when playing Savage Circuit’s new EP, Temporary Paradise. It is a bit like the classic Monty Python fish slapping sketch where just when you expect to be hit in the face by some pilchards along comes John Cleese who whips out an enormous trout that he hits you so hard with it knocks you off your feet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhJQp-q1Y1s). For here we have three tracks of pure energy that will play out in venues in across the planet and rather than being knocked into the water, as in the Python skit, they blow the listener towards the dance floor as the immediate response is a desire to indulge in the sonic waves discharging from the speakers and explore within them the interaction of sound and movement. The invigoration in each track is astounding and a credit to the all-containing nature of psychedelic for the power that can be crammed into each package is impossible to find in most other genres. Savage Circuit capturing the beast and through his own proficiency and dedication unleashing it in such a manner that it can be replicated over a multitude of environments and maintain its vitality wherever it is consumed for psy fans globally will appreciate the universality of the verve contained. Temporary Paradise is out now on Free-Spirit Records and available from your favourite download store - turn it on, turn it up and wait for the trout to the face. Savage Circuit -- BIO Savage Circuit is genetically engineered and generated by Vincent Garcia. A musician since his early teens, hailing from Miami, Florida, USA, Vince majored in Audio Engineering at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale where he studied Recording and Mixing. Having moved to the UK in the late nineties in order to immerse himself in the underground psychedelic scene/culture,he then released Outsider / Induction Ritual on Psylevation Records under the Pagan Technologies moniker. This release featured two of his compositions and included additional engineering and production by Dick Trevor. Critically lauded, and played by DJs such as Shane Gobi, Tristan, Antaro and Captain Kairos, among others, he eventually went on to co produce Arch Fiend’s Shock Hazard. This was a collaboration with Paul Wright of Deviant Species / RAM, which was released on the seminal Alchemy Records compilation Electrum. Soon afterwards, he continued his mutation into Savage Circuit and began performing at many key underground parties and events in London, becoming a notorious regular staple as a live act on the underground psychedelic scene. In July of 2012 he released his debut ep, Crosstalk, on Alchemy Records, which showcased the deep, hypnotic, driving style he developed and perfected throughout his tenure as a live performer . Combining a hybrid approach using analogue and digital synthesizer and studio technology with computer generated 21st century tribal rhythms, his sound is driving, acidic and bouncy. Soaring melodies reminiscent of Goa combine with brutal machine rythms, which further collide with punchy basslines and hypnotic atmospheres. His music encompasses a vibe that is equally both nightime psychedelic, and morning full on. Designed to be played loud in the jungle or forest. The twilight zone with an extra dash of esp and post hypnotic suggestion. Savage Circuit joined Free-Spirit Records in 2012.

At the very core of which is their Free-Spirit series it being their first ever foist on a then unsuspecting world. How times have changed though with FSR now on the verge of celebrating its 10th anniversary during which time it has launched many a career, attracted talent from across the planet to its roster and brought into the wider consciousness all number of artists. The latest of the Free-Spirit Recordsseries is Volume 8, Dividualism. Each of its predecessors designated the responsibility of a different individual to compile and over the years featured producers from across the spectrum and across the sphere. This time it is Dillan M playing selector and those aware of him will have an expectation of what he brings to the fore, for those who don’t, expect no-nonsense, new-fashioned psychedelic. Dividualism containing a varied line-up of contributors including tunes from FSR stalwarts - Journey, and Sonic Wave Control, some co-productions - Twelve Sessions and Woodstech, K.i.M and Manipulation, Hypnoise and Ying Yang Monks plus a few from those appearing in FSR colours for the very first time such as Breathead, Cylon and Space Vision. The common theme; the sensibilities that are constructed into each track. Think focused, with intent, stripped back, unreconstructed, unadulterated energy and you are getting the idea. Working on the primeval surges that happen at the subliminal layer which then get released as a re-interpretation of what is surging from within, often in an atmosphere of communal experience. Yes, this compilation is all about the dance-floor, be it sandy, dusty, leafy or wooden, the sounds are universal, appealing to all comers from all quarters. Have a listen, and get on it too. ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ Dillan M ( Free - Spirit records ) Bio 2000: South African born Dillan M began his DJ career after being exposed to the Psycadelic enchantments of Cape Town’s outdoors. His journey began in a friend’s room with the classic sounds made by vinyl’s and turntables and lead to playing a few house parties. 2001-2002: Whilst living in in Miami Dillan M started to take music more seriously after djing out there. 2003: Dillan M made the move to London and started doing house parties and playing around various clubs & squats. 2004: A breakthrough year for Dillan M when he began hosting a weekly Internet radio show with friend DJ Tabs on World Dance FM, called Tribal Tabs.

Jay forged his earliest psychedelic-rock influences playing guitar in local bars in Milan. His romance with the decks began in the late 80's whilst working for a local radio station where he was given the opportunity to spin his first record. This love firmly in place the move to London followed in 1998. Soon thereafter in 1999 he started djing professionally as Jay OM and in 2003 he studied Sound Engineering and Music Technology and began a solo production project under the name Journey and another collaborative project called Star~Trip. In 2009 he started producing progressive under the name Omsphere. In 2004, Jay conceived the vision of a network of like-minded artists in the psy-trance, progressive and ambient genres, all working to promote themselves and each other under one banner. Thus the Free-Spirit label was born... originally intended to focus on artist management, the label's skyrocketing success combined with the enthusiasm of Jay, the artists and fans enabled Free-Spirit to outgrow its horizons. Jay released his debut solo Omsphere EP, Earthling, in November 2010 followed by a collaborative EP with Solar Spectrum, The Earthlings, in May 2011. He has also released tracks on several other international labels and also has numerous releases under his other projects. Jay has been rocking the crowds at many of the biggest venues internationally as well as outdoor parties and festivals in the UK, Europe, Brazil and South Africa under his various projects including Boom Festival, Universo Paralello, Origin Festival, Fora do Tempo Festival, Aurora Festival, Vortex Festival, Boomerang Festival, Psionic Visions Festival, Sonica Festival, Samsara Festival, Life Celebration Festival and many more... Jay also produces progressive under the name Omsphere, has a further psychedelic collaborative project with Ralph K (Braincell/Solar Spectrum/Rastaliens) called Crocodile Rangers and in January 2012 formed a progressive tribal trance project called Sonic Wave Control. HIs debut album, Sixth Sense, was released on Free-Spirit Records in April 2012. Today, Jay's reputation as an active, involved and hard-working individual in the global trance circuit precedes him. His commitment and enthusiasm for trance music has left an indelible impression on the world scene already and Jay's future has never looked brighter, from his burgeoningly successful record label to his organized events to his upcoming solo releases.

Track Listing: 1) Ethnic Proportions 2) Vision Heir Mastered by Giampiero Mastino aka Jay OM @Killah Mastering Studios, London N22 www.facebook.com/killahmasteringstudios Listen to samples: www.soundcloud.com/liftshift/sets/liftshift-vision-heir-ep-out-on-july-1st-2014-free-spirit-rec Released Exclusively on Beatport from the 14/07/2014 General Release 28/07/2014 Genre: Psychedelic Trance Cat No: FSR0053EP Worldwide distribution by INgrooves, San Franciso, CA Tel: +1 415 489 7000 http://www.INgrooves.com/ LIFTSHIFT - Vision Heir P.R by DMG Liftshift springs forth dumping into our consciousness a brand new release, Vision Heir, which is as demanding of attention as an ice cream store is on a hot summer’s day and once you have indulged in it, as with that ice cream, it will be forever etched in your memory. Busting out all over the place Liftshift is a regular feature on the psy-trance party and festival circuit and as a producer can be found across all manner of labels and compilations. This new two-track EP released by everybody’s favourite London all-things-psychedelic, Free-Spirit Records, who’s own discography grows by the week and satisfies all comers to the genre. Track one is called Ethnic Proportions, the name of the track unveiling somewhat the tribal atmosphere bound to be unleashed upon the listener. Liftshift is of the progressive psychedelic persuasion where often not a lot goes on but that cannot be said of this piece, with an ethereal base there is definitely an atmosphere of exultation throughout and through the track’s progression so does that mood further soar, first teasingly before going all out taking the listener to the boundaries of the universe where interaction with other life forms is now a real possibility. By dropping in some percussion serves merely to reinforce the celebratory nature of what has been achieved and if you don’t have head and hands in the heavens on completion it must only be because you have none. Track two, Vision Heir, is a tad more grounded so that the greater response is to go a stomping, visions of dust clouds being raised as a result are not too hard to conjure. Once it has been confirmed that this is the correct response it is time to go no nonsense but before you get too carried away with this pre-occupation it is worthwhile acknowledging the room that has still been provided to allow interactions between beings of shared desires as a lightness of spirit maintains to pervade in the inherent organic earthliness of the raw componentry. Come up for air and everything has now changed. These two tracks bound to be popping up in DJ sets across the psy-planet and break down dance floors in equal measure. Now, did someone mention ice cream? Liftshift Since Eric Bijl started producing his own music in 2003 putting the trance vibe into his own music, he took off on a journey that would soon take him to many dance-floors worldwide to play his fat and unique progressive sound. Since that time he has been releasing on labels like Echoes, Neurobiotic, Flow, Spin Twist and Plusquam frequently placing himself high in the top 10 of the Beatport charts if not on a No.1 position. These successes have taken him from Universo Paralello festival in Brazil, Boom in Portugal to Summer Never Ends festival and Timegate in Switzerland as well as the classical surrounding of ancient Italy for the infamous Sonica Gatherings and Trimurti festival in the Golden circle around Moscow amongst many others. In 2010 Eric started working together with “Neurobiotic records” and released the highly acclaimed 3 track “Full Cycle” Ep as well as a remix on the “Zen Mechanics Remodified” remix album. He collaborated with Cimi (M-theory) on his album “White world bridger” from 2013 and frequently get’s his work re-released by bigger and more commercial labels. Currently Liftshift is working on a lot of new music, to come out soon.

  15. Track listing: 01) Purity 02) Dharma 03) Infinity 04) Neverland 05) Phenomena 06) Projections 07) Miracle Mastered by Giampiero Mastino @Killah Mastering Studios www.facebook.com/killahmasteringstudios Art Work Graphics by Graham @Geo-Matrix Design www.facebook.com/geomatrixdesign Listen to album preview: soundcloud.com/stereomantra/stereomantra-projections-full Beatport Exclusive Digital Release: 23-06-2014 General Release (Digital): 07-07- 2014 Genre: Psychedelic Downtempo Cat No: FSR0052DA Worldwide distribution by INgrooves, San Franciso, CA - USA www.INgrooves.com stereOMantra - Projections - Digital Album (Free-Spirit Records) PR by DMG It sure has been a bumper few weeks for Free-Spirit Records (FS-R) fans with releases from across their spectrum of artists - a compilation album called Rewakening Vol. 4 featuring the progressive psy talents of the FSR stable and a psychedelic EP by Twelve Sessions aptly named Tropical Storm -plus another instance of the London club night promoted by label boss Jay OM, Tribal Village A Psychedelic Adventure; the fluffiest tribal music event in the capital. Next cab off the rank is a progressive psy chillout album from StereOMantra, Projections, proving once again that there are no boundaries in the universe that Free-Spirit exists. StereOMantra is a music composer from Budapest, Hungary whose background is the classical piano which he forgave once he began exploring electronic music, subsequently finding that psychedelic trance was where art met science. And from there it was the sub-genre of chillout SterOMantra found the most suitable form for the expressing a wide range of emotions and deep feelings that he was seeking to do. Now let’s get it out there, Projections is a simply beautiful piece of work. At fifty-two minutes in length it is an album that grabs attention from beginning to end. Nominally consisting of seven tracks the differentiation between each is irrelevant as it is all about the voyage. It is down-tempo, as you’d expect, but it is the heightened emotion, best described as a notch below exhilaration, that is held throughout that makes it such a standout. The listener slowly eased to this point but once there held for the duration through layers of atmospherics transposed over a deep synth that explores the soundscape and acts as torch light guiding the listener through the experience. So whilst SterOMantra is quick to acknowledge his inspirations it is fair to say he is now contributing as a more-than-worthy member of the chillout community. And once again Free-Spirit Records is proving to be, through its banding together of like-minded but infinitely diverse souls for the goal of communal enhancement, a beacon to which fine artists and producers from across the planet are now flocking to. stereOMantra - Bio StereOMantra is Robert Rohaly, a Hungarian music composer from Budapest. After years of classical piano studies he made his first electronic music compositions in the 90′s, experimenting with Impulse Tracker and even older “DAW”s and gradually developed to an advanced level through related studies and much practice. From the start he has believed that art and science meets most perfectly in psytrance and has experimented with different kinds of related genres through the years until finally finding that ‘progressive psy chillout’ is the most suitable for him, capable of expressing deep feelings of a wide range. Mostly inspired by chill artists like GMO & Dense, Lab’s Cloud, Aes Dana, Ascent & Argus, CBL and Solar Fields, now he is trying to raise prog psy chill to a new level, bringing gentle new atmospheric trippy chill sounds to you ears. Balancing on the border of popular chill and psychedelic culture he tries to bring the best of both worlds together, doing that with the aim of destroying the boundaries and building up deep connections amongst his listeners. :: Booking Opportunities :: We are always looking for quality promoters and production crews worldwide to host Free Spirit CD Release Parties and also Free Spirit Records Label parties.
