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 »

Ashirvad @ Ozora Festival 2013 - Sangita Sounds

In light of last year’s 10th festival held in Ozora, in light of the mysticism of the year 2012 and the newest one that follows the end of the world, in light of all that has enriched us with an Ozora experience, we still have only one thing in mind. Respecting and nurturing the valued traditions, treasures, for free spirits, paradise on earth, our fairy tale. A playground where we learn to share and care, to express, connect , unify, beautify the world around us, in us. A universe of openness, togetherness, reaching out to cosmic energies, to nature, to wholeness through dance, trance, creation, invention, transformation and peace.

re-Evolution

If the Truth can be told so as to be understood… it will be believed

Check this compilation of Arabic Hip-Hop featuring artists from Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt & Libya, compiled by Darren Sangita in response to the unfolding waves of oppression and resulting re:Evolutionary social movements occurring across the middle east.

It features Arabic protest wrapped up in the solid beats of Ghetto Rhythms. Could this be the soundtrack of conflict, of the Evolutionary waves of social change? These dudes are chipping away at the rockface of reality with Microphones instead of Guns…May Peace Prevail On Earth

Looking from the Neo-Geo-Political realm to the realms of Cosmic Consciousness may offer a glimpse of hope.   They are inexpressibly interwoven and one cannot know know one without the other and still expect Peace.  We must harness the ancient knowledge expressed by our forfathers in the wisdom of our Elders.  As those responsible for our collective decision making processes carry out the wishes of the people, or not, we shall witness a re:Evolution in consciousness.   The Shamans of the Amazon consider western society to be their Younger Brother and have in recent times, issued warnings about our modern lifestyle and our blatant collective disregard for our Mother Earth, Pancha Mama.  Let us hear their warning, let us re-awaken to the secrets of  Ancient Knowledge.  Let us know re:Evolution…

Re-Evolution
by Terence McKenna

If the truth can be told so as to be understood, it will be believed.

Human history represents such a radical break with the natural systems of biological organization that preceded it, that it must be the response to a kind of attractor, or dwell point that lies ahead in the temporal dimension. Persistently Western religions have integrated into their theologies the notion of a kind of end of the world, and I think that a lot of psychedelic experimentation sort of confirms this intuition…..
