There is no need to introduce it any special way. Everyone who are involved with this music genre familiar with its own unique sound and impressed by huge amount of releases. It is eleventh one in lats two years! We can discuss what is a reason for this fertility or how it is really needed for best self-representation on the scene... But lets leave it out of this review. The main thing is that music is certainly has high quality production and tends to be different. Two previous years passed for Koan in some experiments with styles. Releases varied in wide range from totaly slow beatless weird ambient to progressive romantic trance. Series of full length albums were dedicated to different moods and genres so fans were overloaded by tons of tracks. Almost of all those albums appeared more as collection of tracks then as real stories or trips. Now in Condemned everything has changed back. Here we have an epic story with great cinematic effect. For me it is a return to the format of the best masterpieces of the project as Two Moon Butterflies (2006), When The Silence Is Speaking (2009) and The Way Of One (2014) were. It seems like years of experiements were not wasted by composer and all of the gained expirience collected in this new great album. The realese contains of three parts. The first is slow bold ambient of rather epic atmosphere. It is lasts first five tracks. It is not dull at all cause it is morphing all the way bringing different features of contemporary electronic music. The mood is changing too. It is waddling on the edges of more dusk and more light spirits. Great evolution has its top at on From Nowhere to Nowhere (Condemned Mix). Here is the end of the suppositive first part. The the second one (6 to 12 tracks) is a cascade of many different genres and moves from breaks and dub to jazz fusion. Track by track it changes again and again presenting very great development and showing outstanding music purview of the composer. All the practice of last 2 years of other releases is here packed in 6 brilliant tracks that blow your mind with great composition and highest quality sound design. The third part is second climax and summary of the whole release. These two tracks repeated the mood of the middle of tracklist to deliver great conclusion to the album. It is rather long album (102 min of 15 tracks in total) not usual for todays scene. It is not a collection of tracks to bring you section of genre hits. It is not a set of pieces to mix. It is really impressive tale with overture, climax and a plot. Chapter by chapter it is unfolds to you in slow but very diversified way. Sure it is one of the best downtempo trips I've ever heard. It is one of the best downtempo albums. And maybe it the best of Koan. I think it should be cheked by every fan of the music alike.

E-Mantra / Emanuel Carpus - Constanta -Romania Hailing from Constanta, a port city on the Black Sea of Romania, E-Mantra is a seasoned veteran and prolific composer, with several releases on respected labels such as Suntrip and Altar, under a variety of aliases (E-Mantra, Emanuel Carpus, Neurosect, and Night Hex, to name a few). E-Mantra is always upping his game with each release,making him one of the most revered and respected producers from Eastern Europe, with several thousand followers on Soundcloud, and excellent reviews over the span of his career. One of the reasons he’s so popular is he represented Goa Trance at a time when Psytrance was on the upswing, so for fans of the old-school he became a sort of musical saviour. And while he’s moved on to other sounds to satisfy his artistic needs, he still maintains that respect for his roots, all with a polished, modern production that really allows the listener to get into a state of trance. "I always had in mind to make a drone ambient related release During my years of music making i placed one drone ambient track in most of my chill out albums; Now its the time to explore more this universe.

  4. Pete Ardron Unexpected Pleasures with Teresa Gabriel, Psibindi, Onyx Ashanti, Sayak Mitra, Myo, Samantha Ray, Harmony Yemanya & Helen Francis Pink Hampster Recordings PHCD12 Audio album taster: https://soundcloud.com/peteardron/unexpected-pleasures-taster-mix Video album taster Pete Ardron (of Orchid-Star) releases his 10th solo album (with guests) on Nov 4th 2016. Call it Psybient/Psychill/Psydub/Ethno-chill/World-fusion or whatever, this shows the usual signs of Pete’s main influences - psychedelic, classical (from the turn of the 20th century), and world music, with a strong Indian influence running through much of it. Musically it carries on very much where Orchid-Star’s Birth left off. Having been persuaded to take the band more uptempo for the 2nd album (Faster), Pete started this album at the same time, finally finishing it a decade later. It is a chocolate box full of gorgeous and very different guest performances, from the epic Hindi/Urdu torch song Mera Dil (my heart) – almost 9 minutes of stunning, passionate wall–to-wall vocals from Psibindi - to the entrancing, quirky, random incursions of deaf vocalist Helen Francis into the gentle, dubby title track, sharing the vocal credits with the beautiful morning song of a Scottish blackbird. Orchid-Star vocalists Samantha Ray and Myo also feature along with 2 tracks from radiant Portuguese singer songwriter Teresa Gabriel, flautist Harmony Yemanya, a bewitching, genre-blending collaboration with beatjazz wind-control virtuoso Onyx Ashanti (Soul II Soul/Basement Jaxx) who also appeared on Birth, and a cover (the first Pete has ever done one) of Ami Tar Thikana Rakhini – a big Bengali hit for Manna Dey in the 1960s, with newcomer Sayak Mitra.

  5. Hi guyz! The summer is going to its end but festival season still blasts. Every year there are many new acts, releases & other fun things appears in the scene. Some for a long time and some for a moment. Just as years before psy scene nowadays seethes and bubbles to deliver new sound impressions to all of us. It is morphing and changing to bring new forms & trends just to leave them back again and keep moving on. One of the best & significant prog&psy label of last years - Blue Tunes Records - has started its chillout division about one year ago. After almost 10 years of building their very special main team and unique sound. Blue Tunes chillout has been started from the only project - far-famed Koan - that used to be resident of Blue Tunes Records since epic & all-time-classic "When The Silence Is Speaking" was released in 2009. Everybody knows the older we get the better we are. Apparently the venerable age and extensive experience of music management pushed Sirko & Co. to expand their vision of today's scene needs. No need to expalain how it is risky to found new line of product especially if it is slow & intelligent sound. And we definetely should say thank you Blue Tunes just for attempt. The year that gone is not true index of what has realy happend and nothing is too clear now but there are some tracks & artists that worth reviewing and measuring. For every head that is in this kind of music it is rather important to have a glance of what is going on at one of the most demanded labels in the scene. So I've tried to listen to several releases that were out recentely to have a chance to catch the main idea and direction of the new source of contemporary chillout & downtempo. I must confess that I was realy impressed of Beatport's page of the label. Almost 30 releases mostly by newcomers in less then one year is very strong result. It seems like label team has started with a massive rush. Artist list contains of both newcomers (the majority) and already well-known artists. Among them such names as Baba Ghnome, Astropilot, Feuerhake, Blue Lunar Monkey and Koan. Also One Arc Degree was very intersting for me as project that sounds perspective. I dont claim to have my review too impersonal and comprehensive enough. I've tried to describe briefly several releases in order of my sympathy. To be true & relevant I've included few releases that I didnt like too much but that I was expected to be rather good. Lets start! Eyescream - Melting Point EP Date: 29 Dec 2015 Code: BTCDR009 1 Phillrider 5:16 2 Laroxyl 4:43 3 Dextro 5:42 4 Nystagma 4:47 The first place in the list is for russian project of Andrey Novikov from Saint-Petersburg. I havent heard of him before this release and was very surprised that it is his 4th release. Howerer almost all of them were out at sort of netlebels so it is little excuse for my ignorance. The album presents 4 tracks of one nice style. It is neat downtempo european progressive style with plain beat and smooth melodies. The mood is elegiac but not too melancholic. It is not so original but very good composed and performed. All sounds are at their places nothing excessive and not too minimal. This kind of music is good to open progressive club party with. In the early evening when people still gathering to the place. The mood and composition reminds older tracks of Abakus and Vibrasphere. The first and the last tracks are more peculiar and the pair in the middle is more mainstream. Altogether they sounds very nice! I also think that this style of downtempo fits the style of main label very nice. Laroxyl is my favorite piece but i need to say that there are no weak tracks in the list in my ears. Maluns - Emmas Dream EP Date: 14 Jan 2016 Code: BTCDR011 1 Dream 1 6:30 2 Dream 2 7:01 Maluns has erlier releases at Cosmicleaf Records and Plusquam Records. It is Swiss artist who prefer to hide his real name so lets pretend we dont want to know it ) This sound is about dynamic psychill. It has cinematic stories inside and very diverse flow. Many different instruments and tunes are intertwined in two impressive suites. Artist definetely has his own style and musical testiness. Each track has good development and sounds original and catching enough. I think it is important for psychill music to have some action and changing in the story the song tells. And Maluns do it just right! Both tracks are in one style but dont sounds dull together. Jule Grasz - Higher Love EP Date: 17 Mar 2016 Code: BTCDR021 1 Full of Stars 6:17 2 Gaia's Rise 6:35 3 Painted Moon 6:40 4 Higher Love 7:55 Jule Grasz has been noticed 4 years ago at unhappy Beats & Pieces Records that was reanimated for 2 years and then fell down again. This year 2 new releases out at Blue Tunes chillout show that this artist is good enough to move out from dead studio and bring her sound to the world. Here I'll review EP but I have listened to album too. The style is ambient. There is almost no beat with exception of rare drums that are mostly parts of composition moves. Sound is burly and low and stories are epic. Atmosphere reminds fabled worlds of mythic lands & times. It has some taste of medieval I think. The highest point is number 2: Gaia's Rise. Great song with chorus effects and heroic mood. Although it is usually not my cup of a style Jule Grasz sounds very impressive. Yarn - Cryptic Entity EP Date: 07 Jan 2016 Code: BTCDR010 1 Entry Level 11:17 2 Deep in Highness 7:03 3 Pille 9:47 4 Innocence 6:42 Ferenc Majercsik, Nandor Horvath are from Hungary. Their magic music will hit many chillout areas soon for sure. Its very danceable and handsome psychill with openwork melodies and velvet beatbase. I think it is very useful at the party when you dont realy want people to fall asleep during your set in chillout. Guys have baked very talented release here and you also can check their album that presents the same style but twice as much. Personally I sure that this style of Yarn is required at psyparties that wants to preserve the spirit of real magic psychedlic event. In a scorching heat of main dancefloor there are moments when you need a place to escape to. And this place should run its own atmosphere that is opposite to the rough night rhythmes. It should be melodic and warm but it still needs engine to keep things running through your mind. Yarn are as close to this goal as it is possible today. My favorite track is Pille but the rest is high quality too. Pay your attention to this release folks. Brian Grassfield - Decades EP Date: 28 Jul 2016 Code: BTCDR030 1 Decades 5:40 2 Quinta 5:52 3 To the Mars 5:57 Brian Grassfield is from Hungary too. And he also presents the division of psychill sound on Blue Tunes. Distinct thread of beat and sophisticated arpeggios of melodies are combined to give us rich taste of wonderland. My favorite Qiunta is morphing a lot and summs up about 3-4 nice tunes that are whirling around each other through the track. I think that while the author have enough imagination to continue this way he will definetely reach a success. Heliocentrism - XIX Date: 19 May 2016 Code: BTCDR025 1 Proportions 3:50 2 Arkanoid 6:18 3 Symbol 7:17 4 Patchwork 8:40 5 Ace 4:21 6 Waves 5:15 7 XIX 6:55 Helioctntrism sound is example of dusk and minimal music. It have a taste of techno & urban soundscape. Tracks are slow heavy and bit depressed. Gloomy atmosphere of the whole album is picturesque and stylish. It is very unusal mood that personaly me likes not so much usually. But this release is much attractive because of its wholeness. My favorites are 2 tracks in the middle - Patchwork and Ace. There are not so many projects in the scene came from Poland but those that we know are rather interesting and unusual. Lets track further progress of this one together. Koan - Why? EP Date: 03 Sep 2015 Code: BTCDR001 Miracle For One 9:28 The Appearance Of Unicorn 9:18 Envoy (White Mix) 10:24 Destination (White Mix) 6:42 Why? 10:28 Koan is headliner of the whole label and probably most known act from the team. Their releases were out at Blue Tunes motherlabel since 2009 and there were many tracks that shake the genre very much. Why? is another one in the long row and presents 5 tracks of saturated and highly melodic and dynamic psychill. Nowaday project is experimenting in many different moods. From dusk ambient to melancholic progressive. But this release is the trademark sound and if you're familiar with Koan's music this one will fit your demands well. My favorite track is Envoy that blasting all the way with great melody and vivid surrounding. All other tracks also very well made and will surely satisfy any psychill lover. J.P. Illusion - When Night Falls EP Date: 05 May 2016 Code: BTCDR024 1 When Night Falls 5:38 2 Wind Full of Voices 7:13 John Panagoulias, Athens, Greece has couple of releases at local label Harmonia Rec. since 2010. His music is very nice example of quality psychill. He shows up as mature artist with great sense of psychdelic composing. When The Night Falls is full of magic sequences that develops very nice together to born out realy great atmosphere of psy chill-out. The second track is bit repetitive and so bright but has also some nice moves that works well. I hope these two tracks are just begining of creative path of the artist that sounds very perspective. Unusual Cosmic Process - Living Earth Date: 10 Mar 2016 Code: BTCDR019 1 Another Beautiful Morning 7:28 2 Salar De Uyuni 6:52 3 Silent Kerguelen 8:22 4 EveRest 8:35 5 Frozen Svalbard 9:04 6 New Zealand 9:22 7 Antarctica 8:26 8 Paints Of Danakil 9:06 9 World Of Tomorrow 8:09 Armen Akopov from Nikolaev, Ukraine is known as founder of many different projects. Unusual Cosmic Process is his psyambient alter-ego. It is expirienced artist whose albums were released at Ovnimoon Rec., Microcosmos Rec. and other studios. I think this album isnt bad at all and the project definetely worth attention. All of you who likes ambient sound and seek some additional inspiration of this kind of music are welcome to try this release. It has some fresh moves and presents its rather special taste. It has some deversity but mostly it is slow cosmic ambient to seduce you. Personaly I didnt like it much but it is more about my personal predilections. My favorite is Frozen Svalbard. One Arc Degree - The Ocean Palace Date: 31 Mar 2016 Code: BTCDR023 1 Through This Haze 7:50 2 The Ocean Palace - Part I 5:30 3 The Ocean Palace - Part II 5:22 4 Saturn Rising 6:28 5 Kraken Mare 6:53 6 Methane Tears 6:02 7 Crossing Belet 6:40 8 Hydrogen Times Pi 6:36 9 Memories of Earth 5:31 One Arc Degree is ambient music producers Ioannis Konstantios & Vasilis Kesalidis from Greece. Couple of earlier previews at soundcloud were very exciting for me and I was waiting the release with impatience. Notwithstanding its not exactely what I was waiting for the album has some nice features that worth to be checked if you are in this kind of music. It is atmospheric and melodic kind of beatless music that nothing to do with psychedlic actually. AstroPilot - Solar Walk IV. YOUniverse Date: 04 Feb 2016 Code: BTCDR014 1 Our Second Sun 7:58 2 Balance 7:46 3 Desolate Spaces 7:41 4 Permanent Impermanence 6:54 5 Immersion (Space Symphony Version) 6:18 6 YOUniverse 6:52 7 Attraction 6:43 8 Through The Veil 8:29 9 Shots Of Awe 6:37 10 Frozen Time 9:39 AstroPilot's album was most anticipated by me among these bunch of releases. I have to say that my expectations were way too high. I dont gonna say that release is awful but I should say that it is not show any development. In both inner and outer meanings. It has no any perceptible development inside - all tracks are so uniform and even... And it seems like all of them just trying to repeat previous releases of the artist. I didnt found any idea that connected them in one suite. It seems like release starts from one uncertain point and then ends in another that uncertain even more. Ambient style is very demanding to the skill of compilation of the release. Slow, almost immobile music wants to be packed in the long stories and should impress listener with imperceptible micro changes all the way to substitute more colorful design of more upbeat music. This release sounds more as compilation of similar beatless tracks then true ambient story as were albums by Cell, Solar Fields or Healer and so on. However the production is still hi-level and up-to-date. Looking forward to find out great creative progress by this artist in next releases. As we see the label now at the time of team's building. They are trying out different artists and styles. Many of them are very interesting and perspective. Personally I prefer psychill & chilgressive styles better then too dull ambient and in my eyes there are too much beatless releases. Also I hope to see more dub/psydub/dubstep acts in the list. But it is up to label's owner to gather artist's pool. All in all I can say that Blue Tunes Chillout team have done great job! Many cool releases and new names are definetely badly needed in the scene today. In the era of digital production there are too many projects borns and dies without a trace at all. Sublabel of mighty Blue Tunes Records is a great chance for newcomers to draw attention and then blast with a masterpiece.
  6. :: PRESS RELEASE :: The duo ELEA is pleased to present their 6th album, « Oniros ». A journey to the heart of Ethno-Ambient, deep and mystical… About the album: Journey to the heart of Ethno-Ambient, deep and mystical, "Oniros" has matured through years of work and creative introspection. This new ELEA duo album reflects a period in life made of strong and enriching experiences, during which the artistic expression of Swann and Ely, and the precision work on arrangements, bring to fruition tracks charged with strength and meaning. The power of the album lies notably in the use of multiple sacred and shamanic instruments played live, with a large measure of improvisation. Several pieces also contain mantra chants. Included as well in the recording of the album are certain of their musician friends (Hideyo Blackmoon, Ismaël Diallo, Trio Zephyr, Amu Ahava and Sangit Sirus). "Oniros" is a rich, spellbinding album. It tells the story of the duo in a manner at once ecstatic, symbolic, almost supernatural, and always luminous. About the artists: www.eleamusic.com Reviews: Stef Holweck / Total Eclipse : …It's a pure chilled album that I will put in my dj bag…loved it… Robin Triskele / Triskele Management : “It is such a nice release, smooth and solid.

Here are my own suggestions: Goa trance - Suntrip Records, Ovnimoon Records, Timecode/Sangoma Records ... Full on - Dacru Records ... Progressive Psytrance - ? What about Psybient? Psybient - Altar Records ... Ambient - Ultimae records (Ambient and downtempo in general)... P.S. Feel free to add you favorite sub-genres.

  11. Artist: Psilocybian Title: Unfold Oneself Into Endlessness Label: BMSS Records Date: November, 2014 01: Wonderfantabulous 02: Dreamability 03: A thing about inconsequent Reverberation 04: Pathways 05: Science Friction 06: Strawberry Fields 07: Unfold Oneself into Endlessness 08: PsiloCybian & Deimos - Waveform with a mind of its own 09: Yield 10: NLO 11: Let me tell you about a weird Dream So we all know Sasa Dukic (Psilocybian) from his fine work in the full-on arena with albums like Dreamtime and Godhead. Both great stuff from a guy who likes to put a pinch of goa in all that he does. For his latest he delivers something that has been on his mind for quite a while. A chill-out album. It took me a long time to review this because I had the hardest time getting into it. And I'm lazy. Well, mostly because I'm lazy. This isn't the dreamy soundscape stuff you would expect from Ultimae or the crazy psychedelic madness from the likes of Shpongle. I suppose you would classify it as psychill (if you must), but it's really all over the map. In speaking with Sasa he basically said he wanted to make a chill out album that people could dance to. Say what now? The name chill out means to, well...chill out. Relax. Not dance. That's what the other stuff is for. So I had to wrap my brain around that mindf*ck. And let me tell you this isn't music that will help you escape, or drift off into memory. That's not what he wanted. A lot of the tracks are big beated. Don't think that's a word, but you know what I mean. Head nodding beats. He's not here to put you to sleep, but to wake your punk ass up and keep you grooving. He mentioned that this album was made without any inspiration from other artists so he took the music wherever it wanted to go without any distractions. Good for him. My favorite was Science Friction with its big beat and Shpongley vocal tacet. And he kept the goa special sauce in there, don't worry. It's really a very different type of chill album than I'm used to, but I think it hits some psychedelic notes. It has some really good melodies and as I mentioned he wanted you to dance with this so that's in here. He floats among all the styles, breakbeat, downtempo, ambient, even a little drum n bass. So there's probably something for everyone here. Not my favorite chill album, but an interesting foray into chill from a guy who knows how to craft a psytrance track. BMSS Psyshop
  12. Orchid-Star's Pete Ardron has come together with singer, snake and fire dancer and Kundalini instructor Kwali Kumara to produce an album which wears 2 hats equally comfortably. Each track is built round an 11 minute repeated mantra delivered in such a way that they can be used easily in a Kundalini meditation context but put aside whatever preconceptions that might give you - anybody familiar with Pete's other work will see the same ecstatic blend of psychedelic, world and classical, electronic and acoustic, in these six beautiful, intense musical journeys - this is most definitely also music for the listener (and dancer!) - psy-chill, dub, liquid drum & bass, progressive and other grooves wrapped in orchestral layers and sprinkled with Indian and Celtic colours. The CD also includes a 12-page booklet featuring the exquisite artwork of Pashet, the mantras with translations and explanatory text from Kwali. Available now on CD - www.pinkhampster.com/html/artistpage.php?artist=Kwali_Kumara_and_Pete_Ardron and digitally from - https://peteardron.bandcamp.com/album/exalted - includes PDF booklet Available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, Google etc. (but not Spotify, Deezer and Rdio) within the next few days. Available on CD from online/real shops globally (through Arabesque Distribution) from Jan 15th

  15. Charles Farewell (aka Asura) is well known as one of the pioneers of psychill music. His deep, slowed down and tripped out beats redefined the genre. What a lot of people don’t realize is that he’s also a genius when it comes to making elevating, uptempo trance. One of the defining qualities of his music is its ability to transport us ever further with each listen. And that quality is very much on display here as we’re teleported up to the higher spheres with this new EP entitled "Eternal Sunshine”. An engaging acid synth line, rich pads, heavenly arpeggios, and lush angelic choirs (all dripping with audio sunshine) counterpoint his hypnotic and locked in, gritty approach to the drums. This is a tune that harks back to the golden years of trance, when productions were simpler, yet incredible powerful and effective. Combined with an impeccable arrangement and gorgeous breakdowns, "Eternal Sunshine” opens the doors to the inner spheres of nirvana on any dance-floor, creating a state of trance with an incredible amount of grace. The track is already an instant underground classic, played frequently across Canada by DJs in the know. Thanks to their support, it's become a 'must' on the trance-floor of each and every festival. Altar Records offers you this jewel of a release with great pleasure. Asura’s "Eternal Sunshine” is guaranteed to brighten your day and light up any dance-floor. Enjoy this Inspiring Release! https://altar.bandcamp.com/album/eternal-sunshine-ep-24bits http://ymlp.com/zr8xA1

  20. E-MANTRA ::: Raining Lights New album out now! :: PRESS RELEASE :: Acclaimed Goa Trance producer Emanuel Carpus (aka E-Mantra) returns for his fifth album with Altar records, with the brilliantly named “Raining Lights”, and what a beauty it is! Each song tells a story. This happens through his choice of sounds, and of course arrangements. Textures are lush, as melody lines are tripped out with delays that intertwine and morph in and out of the soundscape. His leads often have a modulating acid tinge that harken back to classic early TIP releases. Lush, mysterious, and completely hypnotic, these are songs that are a true joy to listen to. E-Mantra is always upping his game with each release, making him one of the most revered and respected producers from Eastern Europe, with several thousand followers on Soundcloud, and excellent reviews over the span of his career. One of the reasons he’s so popular is he represented Goa Trance at a time when Psytrance was on the upswing, so for fans of the old-school he became a sort of musical saviour. And while he’s moved on to other sounds to satisfy his artistic needs, he still maintains that respect for his roots, all with a polished, modern production that really allows the listener to get into a state of trance. For his latest sonic adventure, he highlights his mastery of his favourite genres by crafting a finely tuned tale that progresses seamlessly. The journey starts with an immersion into the depth of sound, an emotional tale that is sure to resonate. Here, he’s reaching the kind of spaces that people loved with the release of his 2012 "Silence" album. Things heat up slowly, and build to satisfying dance-floor oriented beats (peaking with a stunning remix of Kaleidoscope Clouds), and then onto more introspective and meditative vibes in the last stanza. The result is a cohesive experience that creates a sense of euphoria sure to thrill fans both new and old alike. The album title “Raining Lights” perfectly describes this release, as rain is both nourishing and cleansing, and also refers to water - a symbol of our emotions - and emotions are very present here. ‘Lights’ touches upon the healing and luminous aspect of his music. One gets the feeling he’s subconsciously downloading some advanced information. Yes, he moves into dark spaces at times, where thunderclouds appear briefly, but it’s always to put things in context and come back to the essence: radiant light. Each track is a gem, shining both on its own and within the constellation of lights that make up the entire album. In closing, E-Mantra once again proves himself to be the master of flow, and with this modern day classic, offers us a glorious musical experience that stands out no matter what the genre. “Raining Lights” promises to warm your hearts for the coming winter in 2016. We Hope You Enjoy the Journey!

  21. For those who like Goatrance, Goachill and the like... we have compiled here brand fresh new tracks from Khetzal, Tentura, Azriel, Mindphoria, E-Mantra, Asura‼ Give them a try! DJ Zen presents: "Fall" (the new Altar Records compilation). They say there’s a song for every season, and a season for every song. And our musical choices, while influenced by the weather, also become the soundtrack and help define how we live each moment. With that in mind, Altar Records label chief DJ Zen has been tuning into the elements of each season and crafting a special release of Psychill for each one. Following the success of 'Spring' and ‘Summer’, he’s ready to present a celebration of the Autumn season with the release of ‘Fall’. After a summer blessed by the sun, and amazing festivals where we danced half naked under blue skies, there’s a certain nostalgia in the air. Suddenly, we’re more in touch with our feelings. The grass is fading, and the winds have shifted…birds call out as they make their yearly migration south. And the nights are cooler, and arrive too soon. But the light at the end of the day is glorious, with sunsets full of rich orange colours, long shadows, and piercing azure blues that reach up into the twilight. It’s a time of transition; it’s a time of emotions; a time of letting go, and (like the bears in their den) getting ready to go inside, to get cozy cocooning - alone, or with friends. At this crossroads, DJ Zen has compiled some very special music for your listening pleasure. Like a hot cup of chai, these are tunes to keep your heart warm, and your thoughts happy! Featuring 13 exclusive tracks from renowned Psychill masters such as Asura, Elea & Bahramji, AstroPilot, Alwoods, Tentura, E-Mantra, Azriel, Mindphoria and more. Autumn is an amazing time of year, full of transitions, and this release is the perfect soundtrack for tuning into your inner bliss. Enjoy! PLEASE NOTE: (bonus tracks) are not included in the CD. These are only included for your enjoyment on Bandcamp as a 'Thanks' for supporting Altar Records since the beginning credits released December 4, 2015 http://www.altar-records.com/Newsletter_63.html https://altar.bandcamp.com/album/fall-24bits CD tracklist: 01- CABEIRI: Agronauts 02- ALWOODS: Love Spell 03- E-MANTRA: Mesopelagic 04- MINDPHORIA: Fall 05- AZRIEL: Stay in Meditation 06- ELEA & BAHRAMJI: Dancing Blossoms (Sidereal remix) 07- ASTRAL WAVES & ASTROPILOT: Inflation Eternelle (AstroPilot version) 08- ASURA: Deva Delay 09- ASTROPILOT: Sweet Mirage 10- INNERSELF: Rise Of The Earth Keepers Digital tracklist: 01- CABEIRI: Agronauts 02- TENTURA: Cold Drop 03- ALWOODS: Love Spell 04- E-MANTRA: Mesopelagic 05- MINDPHORIA: Fall 06- AZRIEL: Stay in Meditation 07- ELEA & BAHRAMJI: Dancing Blossoms (Sidereal remix) 08- KHETZAL: Farewell, beloved sunshine 09- ASTRAL WAVES & ASTROPILOT: Inflation Eternelle (AstroPilot version) 10- ASURA: Deva Delay 11- ASTROPILOT: Sweet Mirage 12- TERRA NINE: The Heart of the Matter 13- INNERSELF: Rise Of The Earth Keepers Cheers!
