I´ve been hooked on this latelly

I love DCD. I saw them live a couple of years ago or so, touring that album. They were immaculate and the new tracks came out excellent live.

 

Coincidentally I played their Passage in Time compilation the other day and it warmed my heart and put a huge grin on my face. Their music fits autumn weather perfectly IMO.

Lucky you, have yet to see them live...i know what you mean, for me it's a great soundtrack for when you feel melancholy

I know it's obviously not the same but their Toward the Within video/DVD is at least there and it's pretty awesome. This is the whole of the concert I went to:

following our discussions about origins i am into oldschool now, and i highly recommend this =>

I love Mystical Experiences. The title track, The Answer and Alien Patrol are masterpieces in my book. :wub:

 

Patchwork were on a sort of similar era and vein. This Patchwork: http://www.discogs.com/artist/10476-Patchwork I really like their first two albums.

I like Dublicator's Expanded track. I've heard some lush dub techno from him before, but maybe shifting to nearer dubpsytrance now, if that's a thing yet. It has a sort of slightly weathered texture to it that works for me - I often find 'psybient' a bit cluttered and sharp/bright and that Expanded track is a bit more minimal but it's a nice vibe still. The track might blend in amongst Psychic Warriors of Gaia or Locust/Autocreation even. I think it's a TimLeary sample in Expanded - there's a snippet of his LP about 'drift within' on PWOG too.

+1 to silent season record label. Last night I picked out Shaded Explorer's album and the ambient EP on Warmth's Archive record label is quality too. There's a couple of tracks on that ambient archive2 with hydrophone field recordings on I like the sound of - well it's an element that a sprinkle of might work in the mix - I wonder is there a biological/womb or evolutionary/fish aspect to underwater sounds that appeals. That vague dubtech area seems to draw me in t most for chilling right now - even for low key trips I like the Bluetech/SteveHillage dreamtime submersible album a lot. I've tried a few big name 'psybient' mixes on occasions and it was like there wasn't enough space to breathe in amongst it all or something. Everyone's different I guess. Some other times, pitched tonal bit melodic stuff hits the spot - but I really flinch at bit crushed fx and any vocals beyond less-than-words - which means finding stuff that doesn't grate a bit tricky. I think it's the exclusion aspect of language that turns me off - that most of a global audience doesn't understand - plus words really draw me out of some type of timeless listening thing. I worry too in case the words, if I can't understand them, might be mean-spirited in intent - doesn't seem to bother a lot of producers. Ha do fish even have ears?

^there's a GregHunter track I'd missed via Canadian Spiritech records.  You know I think it's closer to 170bpm than 85bpm, it defo has a two-fold rhythmic overtone and I'm guessing inspired by underground drum&bass 

 

https://spiritech.bandcamp.com/track/wingmaker

 

If, in an eclectic frame of mind, that track might play along nicely with something from dBridge (ex BadCompany D&B outfit) label Exit records.  This tune also runs at 170/85, from Instra:mental (who was also picked up by Scuba/Hotflush - I like the Sepalcure project on that label which is Praveen Sharma plus MachineDrum )

https://exitrecordsuk.bandcamp.com/track/fist-level-2b 

 

I just found an interview with MachineDrum chatting to Praveen (Braille) 

https://www.xlr8r.com/features/2015/03/b2b-machinedrum-interviews-his-sepalcure-production-partner-braille/

 

"Sharma: House music speaks to me because it speaks my love to dance, my love for emotion and soul, and for its timelessness."

(I'm not sure how to embed a single bandcamp track, hope these album links work alright - doh!  might be worth clicking links anyhow :) )

LinguaLustra also worked with GregHunter, ISHQ, Mauxuam and more? on the cloudcycle project.  There's uploads over at archive.org and companion releases to Mauxuam's Interchill label too

https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Mauxuam%22

 

- I only found that Spiritech recs chasing Snufmumriko who did a nice hydrophoney track on Warmth's Archive label, I like the quote from Spiritech:

"we want to bring together spiritual electronic musics from all corners of the world..."

 

(apolgies for trivia, but that instra:mental track has a sound in the intro that made me think of ocaso by panoptica - electronica from Mexico in 2002 but still sounds fresh and not really surfaced on youtube or online much so far.  It was released via cert18 which I thought was more of a d&b label, not sure if they reached out to much more diverse stuff but Ocaso is a 5star track I reckon)

it is not possible to embed bandcamp sinngle tracks, and if you want to embed album you need to input id and not url.

Latest Ishq album. Although there's something to be gained from all of Hillier's releases, somehow this album feels closer to me. I think it might be my favourite Hillier release since Flowering Mountain Earth, if not even And Awake. It feels a bit more varied in terms of moods.
