Beats Bass and Beyond - PsyAmb 73

Some captivating bass heavy tunes have been tickling my fancy of late. Here is a mix of psychedelic tunes with a bass focus. This one starts of in a pretty laid back fashion with a couple of tracks from Anchor Hill and AtYya. 

Anchor Hill ( Richard Hartley  ) has crafted a fine album with his latest "Medicine Grove" release. Check it out on his Bandcamp page. AtYya ( Tyler Clark ), like Richard, is another bass lover from Canada and also has his latest work up on Soundcloud

Some great stuff coming out Canada these days. Once upon a time there was pretty much just the Interchill label but now there are lots of new producers emerging. 

After the those guys we have yet another Canadian - Daega Sound, one of my favorites when it comes to to deep bass laden electronic music. You can pick up this tune, Terra, along with many superb others on the Bloom Series Vol 1 release.

We then move into a champion bit of psydub with a unique vibe from Soulacybin ( John LaBoone ). This track, Shine Out, comes from Mycelium Music Compilation Vol. 3.  For more of his excellent music have a listen to his latest full length release - Gratitude on the brilliant Australian label Merkaba Music.]

Psychill Mix - PsyAmb 72

Summer holidays here and that means time to get some mixes done ! Today I'd like to kick of the summer break with a selection of top psychill songs for your listening pleasure. All of these tracks have a deep space vibe to them. Perfect for chilling out with a cold one to avoid the heat ( so hot here in Osaka !! ). And for you guys in the southern hemisphere - I hope the warm atmospheres in these hypnotic tunes can provide some warmth.

Amos has had a handful of compilation appearances on labels such as Ultimae Records, Suntrip and Spiral Trax. His debut album came out last year, also on Ovnimoon Records.

20 Psychedelic Patterns Islamic Style

Islamic design makes use of mathematics to create intricate, detailed geometric fractal like patterns. The history of Islamic design finds its roots in the art of Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Persian cultures. 

Presented here is a collection of 20 fine examples of design element. Some complex and some more simplified. I find these patterns below to have a decidedly psychedelic retro art feel to them. This is probably because psychedelic art of the 60s borrowed heavily from these types of images as well as the Art Nouveau movement.

In Islam, the designs represent the infinite. That is to say, the complex patterns are a mirror of the nature of creation by Allah ( The Arabic word for 'God') . This is quite the opposite of what one sees in other religions that typically use religious iconography.
