Reid Willis – The Ocean Won’t Allow (Official video)

Morphing fluidly through all sorts of otherworldly scenery, sci-fi cityscapes and fantastic pharmaceutical visions, always in perfect sync with the rhythmic ebb and flow of the multi-layered rhythms and melodies, this music video by Xander Steenbrugge makes the perfect visual counterpart for Reid Willis’ The Ocean Won’t Allow from his stunning new album.

Roberdo Raval / 11-2020

Ambient House, Breaks, Acid, Tech. Uplifting, mellow, ecstatic, inebriating, hallucinogenic. Bright and sunny at the beginning, turning rather dark and nocturnal towards the end. It’s been a while since I recorded a DJ mix, and even longer since it had a notable amount of four-to-the floor tracks in it. Go here to download the file,…

Adam Pits – HAWSMIX036

Long gone are the days when terms like psychedelic or trance were reserved for the junkie space pirates inhabiting the subculture with this very name, and when these terms were used by outsiders with a somewhat derogatory connotation. While major Psytrance festivals have turned into a neo-spiritual version of EDM events, urban hippsters and other…

Self-Portrait: Adam Pits

Good things are oozing out of the gaps between House, Electro, Bass, Breaks and… Trance. Intriguingly psychedelic things, that is. Read all about it here and embark on the journey by pressing the play button below.

Bluetech – FWD136

A name that brings back Nag Champa flavoured memories of days spent between flourescent depictions of mushrooms and eleves: Bluetech. The North American artist had quite a unique sound already 15 years ago, when his mellow Downtempo Psychedelia were released on quality imprints like Aleph Zero or Interchill. Pleasure to hear that he didn’t lose…

Applescal – FWD106

Sounds pretty much like a modern-day version of what D-Nox played at VooV’s second floor on those unforgettable Sunday afternoons in the early noughties… Well done, Mr. Applescal – very well done.

Jon Hopkins – Singularity

Jon Hopkins’ last album would have been the perfect terminus for a musical career that burns out rather than fading away. However, he faced the extremely high anticipations and released another album. Singularity might not be quite as groundbreaking and innovative as the last album – but it surely is a worthy successor. Ecstasy and…

Astroboter – Form & Void Mix

It’s been real quiet around German producer Astroboter. So quiet actually that one might have thought he drifted into oblivion. However, now he’s back – and he didn’t lose his touch. This excellent mix is an appetizer for his forthcoming album Form & Void, to be released on 19th January 2018. And if it is…

The Oddness – Live at Ranch-o-Relaxo

While the Psytrance scene seems to be stuck in an endless loop of the same artists playing the same sound for many years already, other electronic music genres are getting deeper, more ethereal and even psychedelic in very fresh and innovative ways. What happens at the Ranch-o-Relaxo gatherings in Australia is a perfect example for…

Ulf Eriksson – Boiler Room Upfront 060

Deep, hypnotic Techno at its best: “DJing is so much more than just swapping records. It is – and should be – a reflection of the person that’s mixing. Right now I like to do mixes as shapes or waves. Sort of like small sculptures of sound. This is also how it turned out this…

Sparksart

Using exclusively graphite pencils and paper, Australian illustrator Susan Sparks creates mandala-like pictures that are simply mind-blowing – both technically and aesthetically.        

Griff – Live At Shambhala Music Festival 2015

Seventy-seven minutes of bass-heavy awesomeness, delivered by Griff, my favourite artist from the thriving Australian Glitch Hop scene. The warm and organic sound that is so typical for the Melbourne based artist has a very human, almost hand-played vibe to it. Also I love how it is deeply psychedelic in the most progressive, most forward-thinking…

Romanesco, Brain Cactus & Co.

The symmetrical awesomeness of nature, captured in a collection of 8 plant pictures.   Crassula Buddha’s Temple     Alstroemeria Pelegrina     Brain Cactus     Aloe Polyphylla     Drosophyllum Lusitanicum     Dahlia     Romanesco     Red Cabbage
