New album Buddha Bowl by No Mask Effect

2017-07-07 21:32:08 UTC

New

Psychonavigation Records founder, Keith Downey returns with his latest musical offering, Buddha Bowl. Under the guise of No Mask Effect, the prolific Downey has just released his fifth project in under two years through Psychonavigation Records.

The album opens with “Be Good To Us”, a diverse mix of industrial complex beats, electronic and Afro-Caribbean inspired vocal snippets alongside an ear worm of a saxophone groove. On “Siren” the mood shifts with a lush sea of sound drifting from the speakers. A sinister yet tranquil string melody lurks beneath the audio waves, eventually emerging to create a beautiful piece of effortless ambient.

Meanwhile the mysterious bells, chimes and subtle, pulsing rhythm of “Hidden Surprises” takes Downey's long time love of Ambient music to new territory. With chattering electronic beeps and bleeps, celestial vocal samples and an ultrasound inspired bassline that is both intriguing and unexpected.

“Dark Emotion” however, reveals itself to be more enigmatic rather than pessimistic.  An eight minute sensatory expedition of obscure samples both organic and electronic, nature sounds, glorious synths spiraling electronic loops are all included in the production. Music for headphones, this track's intricacies can only unfold with repeated listens.

With what is undoubtedly his most accomplished and eclectic collection to date, Buddha Bowl should satisfy long time No Mask Effect fans while exposing his unique sound to many new listeners.

Presenting the new Dark Ambient Album from Xerxes The Dark, Named [Ab]Solution  released on D.M.T. Records (Canada)

The Story behind the Album: The album is inspired by a true & heavy Overdose of Morego in fall of 2008, when he was 20 years old. He lived about 2 hours not on earth nor hell, but in a gloomy place like a limbo, after seeing many things and suffering from unknown disorders, experimenting flashes about his past and his death, he gradually came back into life by a mysterious cosmic power that changed the game. This album is a simulation of what happened in his darkened trip on that cold-foggy november night!!

New album - R.S.I. Therapy Center by Superstructure

2017-02-11 04:20:45 UTC

New1


Superstructure's new record is called "R.S.I. Therapy Center". As with all his stuff, Josh Younggren is still struggling to properly explain it, but seeing as this was a great opportunity to make a political record (as an American),  he finds it telling he couldn't make it overtly political. The music here is an examination of our repetitive tendencies - simultaneously soothing and harmful. 

Track List


  • Welcome - 06:47 
  • Ranger - 03:56 
  • Territorial - 06:58 
  • 5AM Loop - 06:36 
  • I Found a Prophet In Omaha - 05:47 
  • Sophia/Harmful Therapy - 08:29


Genre : beat, electronic, house, minimal, techno

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums.

Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
