World Ambient Mix Download - PsyAmb 11

Hello again. Welcome to the latest episode of PsyAmb. This week I am presenting something a little different. Until now I have been focusing on a lot of psybient, dub and spacey sounds. This week I would like to share with you something a little more 'worldly' with a world music mix. Lots of tribal drumming, far of distant chanting and wobbling bass lines. Don't worry - there is still plenty of psychedelic sonic shenanigans in there ! It was quite a challenge to mix world music and maintain a psy vibe so I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

Master Margherita download liveSpeaking of world music , someone who has a wonderful psy-world sound is Master Margherita. Hailing from Switzerland , Master Margherita is an excellent musician and covers a wide range of genres but I find he really excels at ambient and dub sounds. He has also produced some astounding world-ethno chillout music of late. Check out his track 'Koto' in today's mix - great stuff !! You can find out a lot more about MM at Peak Records where he is involved as one the label's managers. Also don't forget to check out his latest CD 'Hippies with Gadgets' which I featured here a while back as album of the week.

Today's the start of a three day national holiday here in Japan so I'll be spending the next few days chillin' right out. Peace to you all and thanks for listening once again.

Psychedelic Ambient Mix Download - PsyAmb 10

Hello and welcome to this week's episode of PsyAmb, the psychedelic music download podcast. My apologies to those who experienced trouble downloading last week's episode. Everything should be running fine now. First up a bit of news about some upcoming releases. Out tomorrow ( Sep 8th) on Waveform Records is the new CD from Capsula titled 'Sense of a Drop'. The samples on the CD release page sound very nice indeed. Capsula's last album was his debut release titled 'Synthesis of Reality' from Ajana Records. Released over 4 years ago now , 'Synthesis of Reality' was is excellent album full of funky driving basslines , loads of gated effects and delays and of course the excellent "I know that I know" track. Really looking forward to the new one !
capsula sense of a drop downloadNext up is some great news regarding Koan who I featured here a few episodes back. William Grey of Koan has been in touch to let us know that Koan have not 1 , not 2 but 3 new albums to be released this year !! There will be an album titled 'When the Silence is Speaking' released on Blue Tune Recordings. Next is a double CD titled 'Memoirs of a Geisha' from Diamond Records. Finally there will another album release on the German label SpinTwist. Way to go lads - that's what I call productive !!

Also expected around now is the new release from Heyoka titled 'Gate Code'. If you are a fan of dubwise-psy then no doubt you will have heard the original Heyoka release 'Whomp Gland - Pineal Dub' that came out earlier this year. Some of the funkiest, heaviest basslines on ambient tunes ever. Great stuff ! Looking forward to picking that one up.

Changing World records has a tasty looking ambient compilation coming up called 'Avalon Rising'. With over 35 tracks spread across 2 CD's it looks like value for money to me ! Some of the tracks are quite old and appear on other CDs but the lineup of the tracks is impressive and well thought out. Would suit a lazy afternoon of mental psychedelic ambient massaging.

Finally , due for release in October is the new Liquid Stranger album titled 'The Intergalactic Slapstick'. The LS sound is full of heavy dubstep tunage with a twist of psychedelia now and then. Check out his myspace page for more info.

Well that's about all I've got in terms of things on the horizon. So let's get into this week's mix. Being somewhat of mini-milestone , the 10th episode , I decided to indulge in a bit a longer mix this week. Please enjoy this psybient mix and peace to you all.

Spacey Ambient Mix Download - PsyAmb 9

raja ram download live tourHello everyone. This week's mix takes a bath in some spacey ambient vibes. I've included some up to date releases as well as one or two classics such as Spacedrifters 'Eb' of TipWorld's "Twelve" compilation from 2001. Wow - that long ago already ! Despite being mostly known for their pioneering dance floor tunes, TipWorld and label head Raja Ram put out some brilliant ambient tunes back around then.

Today's highlighted artist is the Ukraine's Denis Botsvin, a.k.a Harax whose 2008 release titled 'Inly' made an immediate impression on me from the first listen. I would describe it as very melodic without getting too cheesy, nice use of full lush pads, subtle bass and emotive rendering. Think Ultimae records with a bit of a fresh twist. Released on the Australian Up Records label, I definitely recommend picking up a copy for yourself.

Check out this video of Harax at Skygravity. Skygravity is a Ukranian electronic music festival that has been gaining in popularity over the last few years. Never been there myself but it looks very nice. As psytrance and psychedelic ambient music continues to boom in the Baltic expect parties like this one to gain momentum and brilliant artists like Harax to filter to the surface.
