DJmix : Peter Fanai ( Basicnoise )

Bookmark and Share

basicnoise peter fanaiI don't often post other dj mixes on this blog but this one is so freakin good I just had to share it. This is an amazing mix from Germany's Basicnoise ( Peter Fanai ). At the age of five Peter started with classical piano lessons at the conservatorium. Aged just 13, he got his first synthesizer (Korg M1), resulting in an affection to electronic music. Around 1995 he got a groundbreaking mixtape with tracks from Sähkö, Basic Channel and Peacefrog.

Already in love with electronic music, these minimalistic and dubby tunes changed everything and he started to create his own tracks. After some releases with different styles as Peter Fanai, he came up with Basicnoise for pure minimalistic dub techno.

Psychill Radio - Psionic Geometries Vol 17

Bookmark and Share

Here is the DIFM PsyChill radio mix for November 2011.

There are a number of great new psychill CDs out at the moment including the excellent new "Ultimae Records" release "Ambrosia" which features a number of new artists and reflects a bit of a departure from the usual Ultimae sound of Aes Dana, Solar Field, CBL etc. Another release I'm really enjoying is "Ethnoscapes", the debut release from "Atmospheric Records". I don't know much about this new psychill label and their homepage is pretty sparse but this release is a pretty solid ( mastered by Aes Dana ) debut so let's hope they can continue their strong start.

Another great compilation to check out is "Nutek Reocrds" new release "Mira" which has some real gems on it from Abakus, Bohemian ( in this mix ), J.P Illusion and more. Nutek is best known for their psytrance catlaogue with a number of big psytrance producers on their roster including CPU, Painkiller and Azax Syndrome. This is a welcome departure and hopefully not their last. It reminds me of those psychill compilations 3D vision put out all those years ago "Module01" and "Module02" .

One more top compilation released recently is "Origins" by Lisbon's "Woorpz Records". This also marks a debut as Woorpz first psychill compilation and like the two compilations mentioned previously is a solid slice of psychedelic chillout music. If you like Origins I also recommend giving the "Around The Universe" EP by "Timescape" a listen.

Fractalic Design - Fractal Psychedelic T-shirts

I was recently contacted by Itay , a founding member of Fractalic Design with news about their new online fractal tshirt venture. If you are looking for some high quality fractal designs do check out their site sometime. They run a quality setup and the fractals themselves cover the entire tshirt rather than a simple design in the middle as you might find on Zazzle or CafePress.

The tshirts are not black light reactive, which is a nice change to be honest. Personally I've see too many of the black light tshirts over the years and they have become a bit too cliche. These shirts are something more unique and modern. It's great to see people putting their artistic hearts and minds into an operation like this. I hope they can continue to grow the business over the years to come.
