The Sonica Festival delivers you a new multicultural experience through music, art and peace. As a tool for increasing a common ecofriendly consciousness, Sonica aims to realize an international creative network crossing all different paradigms including visual art, performance and electronic music, together with their own ethic parallel contents such as wellness, meditation, nutrition, holistic therapies, alchemy, cosmology, quantum physics, environmental sustainability, green technologies and human design.

According to this vision, Sonica would like to represent a new spiritual gateway for the universal shift post 2012; a behavioral pattern’s upgrade for applying new ideas and new models of interaction able to overcome the social collapse reached by the information technology era. To achieve this goal Sonica would like to become a junction point for different realities, where the collective participation leads to peaceful comparisons in order to share both transcultural values and the general interests growing behind productions, creations, exhibitions and every kind of artistic expression.

Padmasana have released the follow up to their eponymously titled debut 1999 album, with Padmasana II on Dakini Records with a limited edition of only 500 beautifully presented CD’s.

Padmasana II - Dakini Records-  Full Sleeve

Padmasana was formed in 1997 by Gio (Makyo) and David Hikari and on this 2nd sonic voyage they have produced a deep, spacious dancefloor meditation for conscious souls to move and groove to.  Deep 808 kick drums massage the base chakra and the kundalini massage continues right up to the Sahasrara with sparkling hi hats of pristine purple.  Minimalist in approach and Zen in attitude, this allows for much space to unfold from the Minds Ear.  Its wonderful to enjoy such clarity in shimmerdelic sonospheric style.  Perfect space musik for ambient tranceheads, spiritual seekers and dope hip-hop freaks alike!

The Neodelic sonic aesthetic contained in this sonic vista, is a breath of fresh air in the contemporary electronic landscape.  Amongst the rush and push of musical life, here exists an energising yet spacious frequency which allows for transmogrifying possibilities whilst always maintaining the spiritually enriching and centred, meditational space which is deep in the groove.  A rare gem of a record in the read more »
