Synopsis

Product Description
A celebration of the full solar eclipse in Baleshwaar, India this album of ambient psychedelic dub is, A Journey of Permanence and Impermanence and voyage into deep ambient and far beyond into the stars. From grand beginnings of Shpongles first track ...and the day turned to night (20.30) full of the ambience of India and melodic flutes blended perfectly with a cocktail of liquid jungle beats, through the dub chill of Dubstuff. The tribal beats and vocals of Anubis Invocation and into Doofs title track Baleshwaar Balesheesh complete with audio samples from the solar eclipse itself. Not content, there are world ambient offerings from Frances Total Eclipse and colloboration between Doof and Hallucinogen in the form of Nomads of Dub with the smooth ambient trance of Spirals, a powerful blend of exotic and spiritual sounds generated from analogue recordings and hi-tech digital manipulation of mankind and nature's response to the most overwhelming astronomical phenomenon, the total eclipse of the sun. the starting point for each track is a series of recordings made before, during and after the solar eclipse witnessed in India in 1996. the album represents a musical journey carefully crafted in response to this event by Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and colleagues whose expanding horizons encompass styles as diverse as drum and bass, dub and ambient. this is an undeniably a positive album guaranteed to soothe, seduce and satisfy genuine music lovers of all persuasions.
 

CD Reviews

Mind-breaking psychedelisk ambient/drum'n'bass/trance!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is perfect for a chill after a great party and it takes your mind out of the room and on a journey that can (and should) NOT be described. Get yourself on a hilltop,bring some ******,and play this cd. Its so psychdelic,and will force you into differant dimensions,outer space,Goa,in the mystical wood filled with psychedelic mushrooms,and an old wizard playing tunes on his flute. For everyone who thinks that the spirit and soul deserves something better!+ABw-"
Brilliant (if you have the right mind for it) :)

"Take this psychedelic-ethnic-dub compilation to the highest mountain tops and let the music take over your mind.

The journey begins with a 20 minute composition masterpiece that only gets better with age.

Thank you Simon, Raja, and Sheldon for this cosmic beauty."
