Review : Psyfunk EP by The Egg & Greg Hunter

The Egg & Greg Hunter - Psyfunk - web Sangita Sounds

The inimitable Greg Hunter (aka Dubsahara / Mutantra) has filtered the much loved musical magic of UK festival favourites, The Egg, through his prismatic audio spectrum of consciousness. Thus allowing their mellifluous melodies to scatter in rainbows upon the sultry, psysexy beat that relentlessly urges the listener to throw their arms into the air and dance like a bellydancer rejoicing at the Oasis at midnight. Check out the sample tracks below and let your mind and body absorb the mystical journey into this original blend of psychedelic, dub, rock and electronica.  Psyfunk has been a firm favourite in Darren Sangita’s DJ sets over the past few years and its a blessing to share this release as it finally sees the light of day.

Review : Another Fine Day – A Good Place to Be

Another Fine Day have been a blessing on the musical horizon over the past 2 decades. The depth of this production and the musical magic combine to open deepest spaces of musical experience.  Consciousness flows into Zenlike pools of awareness, revealing ones innermost thoughts and emotions. Its a therapeutic musical moment and can always be recommended.  By comparison with many other contemporary ambient album releases, the sophistication of the geometry of sound is like luxuriating in the State rooms of Consciousness!  Do yourself a favour and go and listen in one of your quieter moments. Your merkaba will thank you for it later :)

Let me get the elephant out of the room and say…this album is very … Piano-y.  So if you are piano averse then perhaps not for you. I also felt it was perhaps too much on first listen. But again and again I found myself coming back to listen to the album, its delicate spaces opening up on repeated listens and creating a perfect mood for that peaceful, anti-urban stress-busting aura to unfold.   The production quality is so beautiful that it thankfully seduces ones ear into repeated listens.  Enjoy the original album and DO be sure to check ot the remix album too… its full of splendour!

Review : The Moonlight Orchestra – Traipsing Bloom

Traipsing Bloom - The Moonlight Orchestra - Sangita

Magical, characterful cosmic tales in poetry and prose are draped in musical perfection on this album from New Antique Records.   Lee Harris, Ben River, Youth and friends are The Moonlight Orchestra. There aren’t many poetry albums in our collection but this os one to lead the way. Classic contemporary soundscapes, beautifully produced by west London’s Ben River, amorphous producer and talented songwriter in his own right, are the perfect backdrop and interlude for the strong psychedelic characters featured here. A host if famous and infamous story tellers and poets, casting light on life’s ineffable mysteries.  Do check it out.. take the trip into beauty of the spoken word.   Above is a sample of one of our favourites from the album featuring the legend that is Alchemy’s Lee Harris and his paean of light, “Shine On”.

The Moonlight Orchestra // Traipsing bloom, a drifting, meandering journey of sonic and aural fusion. Intertwining experimentalism, soundscapes, psychedelia, folk, blues, electronica and featuring guest poets:Daevid Allen, John Sinclair, Lee Harris, Youth and Ben River, who also founded The Moonlight Orchestra and co-composed & produced the album over a three year period.

The album also features special guest musicians; Founding member of the legendary band Hawkwind,  Nik Turner plays saxophone on three of the albums songs, guitarist Paul Bangash plays guitar and other instruments on the album, Georgina Brett provided vocal looping on the album, Producer and musician Darren Moss played keyboard on ‘Thrones made of Crumbs’. Musician and producer Jon Clayton, plays Cello on one of the album’s songs. Bass player Lee James, Guitarist George Hall, Violinist Giorgia Macellari and DrummerAntek Prysbola play on the song ‘North Star’

Beautiful meandering journeys though sound and spoken word create a natural ambience to engage deeply with, allowing consciousness to roam through the multi faceted aspects of human nature expressed within. Superb contributions from a host of talented poets, musicians artists and producers embellish each track with poignant gems of wisdom and experience. This album is a rare and magical gem of a musical journey, revelling in the sweet mystery of the human experience.
