Jeremy’s Aura represents but one of the musical directions of Jeremy Costa, a Montreal-based artist with a creative background in painting, sound installation, and progressive rock. Here he presents his debut full-length album, jointly released by Maia Brasil Records and Omnitropic: Being And Becoming… His sound is a free-ranging celebration of many diverse musical influences, from Shpongle, Argaman, Globular, Ott, Infected Mushroom, and Ekoplex to Devin Townsend, Buckethead, King Crimson, Tool, Frank Zappa, Schrodinger Kats, Dream Theater, and many more. With an eager exploration of various activation frequencies, tuning modes, and tempo changes, Jeremy’s music playfully shifts from atmospheric ambient and soothing downtempo into progressive psychedelic environments and back again, always moderating experimentalism with a strong sense of musicality that will not be lost on listeners.
DJ Basilisk proudly presents The Colours Of Ektoplazm, a 5-hour, 69-track midtempo and downtempo odyssey featuring 100% Creative Commons licensed content released through the Ektoplazm free music portal. This mix explores the incredible diversity of Ektoplazm’s electronic music catalogue, shifting seamlessly between intricate breakbeat patterns and pulsating four-by-four rhythms, touching on all points of the sonic spectrum from deep trance and psy dub to psybreaks, glitch, IDM, and beatless ambient. Recorded in two sessions at Hexing Studio, Taipei, with Traktor and a Korg Nanokontrol.
Norwegian multi-genre producer Phobium (Henning H. Ottesen) returns to Omnitropic, Ektoplazm‘s downtempo and ambient sublabel, with this elegant work of conceptual space music and deep trance. This is the story of the first manned mission to travel through the immense cloud that surrounds our solar system, the place where comets are born, the Oort Cloud.
Omnitropic presents Falling Into One, the debut full-length album by Phone Booth Robbers (Bastiaan van Staaveren), a psychedelic downtempo project from the town of Hoofddorp in The Netherlands. Phone Booth Robbers began creating music in the mid-nineties, gradually shifting from early trance music to richly melodic downtempo and electronica inspired by acts like Shpongle, Ott, Bluetech, Ozric Tentacles, and Easily Embarrassed.
