:: PRESS RELEASE ::

Mobitex is Eyal Markovich from the Sea of Galilee Israel. The love for psytrance found him in 1997 and after being deeply submerged in the electronic scene he embarked on his electronic music production journey, first starting out with production software like Rebirth and Fruity Loops 1.1.

In 2003, he decided to undertake studies in sound engineering which was an exponential experience to continue to achieve a B.A in communication studies.

Soon after in 2007, he found himself at a threshold of choosing careers between music or becoming a teacher. He did become a teacher. Nevertheless, life had additional plans for him in store. In 2015, he teamed up with Hudur Shrim and out of that revelation they skillfully produced two albums under the nickname “Profondita”:

‘Ciel’ which was released on Altar Records May 2016. And the second album released in May 2017 as ‘Dracarys’.

Today, Eyal is well on the way in his successful musical career as he is producing his own project Mobitex with a ‘chillgressive’ style (a combination of chill out and progressive trance sounds) with elements that will sweep the listener away onto a exuberant hypnotic musical voyage…

Dragons are well-known mythological creatures that have magical powers.
The Latin word draco, as in the constellation Draco, means huge serpent or water-snake. The word ‘dragon’ also comes directly from the Greek drakones or draconta, meaning “to watch”.
The Greeks look at dragons as beasts, guarding treasured pieces.
Some live in deep areas, such as underwater and caves, while others live on top of mountains so that ancient civilizations couldn’t reach them.

The Progressive Psychill geniuses are back!

Here is ‘Dracarys’ from Profondita. Their last treasure is filled with 8 musical gems guarded by a beautiful luminous dragon designed by George Atherton from Geoglyphics.
The tracks have been a successful hit and exploded with enthusiasm on the dance-floors.
The amazing ‘Profondigiman’ track featuring Gabriel Kimchi aka Aborigiman is ready to blast your sound system and explode the epic dance-floors at festivals all around the world.
The tracks have been a successful thrill with exploded enthusiasm on the dance-floors.

If you’re a long-standing fan and have enjoyed their first opus ‘Ciel’ of their exquisite music, you will be in for a musical delicacy with this weaving follow-up album !
Offered in 24bits flawless quality for the download version.
The CD’s packaging is made of the beautiful Digipack for the visionary pleasures.

Enjoy!

Astral Waves “Genesis” |ARCDA68|

Genesis, by Astral Waves (28th of April, 2017)

PRESS RELEASE:

Get ready for take off with the new visionary album entitled “Genesis”, by Astral Waves! Astral Waves is DJ Zen (aka Gabriel D.) based in Quebec, Canada. Originally hailing from France, he’s one of the pioneers of the Canadian psytrance scene.

DJ Zen created Altar Records in 2009; as label chief he’s been running and managing things ever since. On top of providing DJ and live sets on demand, he also does most of the artwork and audio mastering for Altar Records. His production as Astral Waves has gathered high praise in the psychill scene, along with the numerous compilations he’s compiled and curated for Altar Records (and other diverse labels).

His latest offering gives testimony to his emerging status as a very promising producer. This is a deep, tribal psychill journey made over the last three years with the following goals in mind: no repetition whatsoever of any sounds or samples, and maximum inspiration taken from nature, indigenous people, tribal drum rhythms and chants from all over the world. If you’re looking for a soundtrack to activate your inner Warrior of Light, you are in for a treat!

And while this is definitely a journey that takes you into the realm of psychedelic chill (with its deep, trippy vibe), it also comes with a nice serving of dub influences, some progressive chill, and strong tribal beats at key points for good measure —hence the title “Genesis”. In fact, it’s a wonderfully diverse album that plays out very much like a ‘best of Astral Waves’ compilation would. And for good reason: this definitely is his best work to date, and his most creative.
Each and every sound was carefully chosen and meticulously crafted, providing a unique feeling to the compositions as well as a musical trip to the continents of Asia, Africa, America, and Europe.

The album flows seamlessly even if each ‘wave’ or story has a different flavour. It seems that Astral Wave’s intention with Genesis here is to prove that psychill music is more than capable of tapping into our deepest feelings and states of mind. Since the dawn of mankind, music has been crafted to express feelings, sooth fears, express boundless joy and (most of all) get the tribe dancing, moving and shaking. So it was in the beginning, so it is now…Let the journey begin…

…………

Track 1) “The Believer”: Genesis starts ever so gently with a long, evolving and deep psychill-dub track featuring the amazing vocals of French/Quebec singer Patrick Bernard —a renowned artist in the local new age and yoga scene. Experience spirit through sound with this thirteen minute odyssey (80 bpm).

Track 2) “Ashura II”: offers up a Middle-Eastern sounding track with dark overtones, gnarly bass lines, simple percussion and trippy tribal chants. Suryademah previously released this on Altar Records, and for this album it’s been completely reworked (90bpm).

Track 3) “Rain of Shooting Stars II”: the most psychedelic song on the album…using only three samples taken from the well known Alwoods track “Rain Of Shooting Stars”, this is night time music at its finest (100 bpm). Night trippers, prepare to trance.

Track 4) “La Danse du Feu” (Dance of Fire)”: the fourth stop on our voyage takes us into the primal forests of indigenous North America, for a raw, tribal journey with this (105 bpm) energetic composition. Samples of nature, spoken Native words, and the powerful kick give this tune its earthy, crunchy feel, while the sophisticated arrangement keeps things interesting. If you’re a fan of ‘A Tribe Called Red’ but looking for something a bit trippier, this song is pure medicine for your ears. Electric guitar by Raph LVD.

Track 5) “La Danse de l’Eau” (Water Dance)”: a gorgeous, evolving track with delightful flute lines from AEolia Project, recorded at Altar Records studios during the summer of 2016 expressly for this piece. In addition to grooving tribal percussion, the song also has an amazing climax that takes us on a sunny, positive journey to the heart of mother Africa (72 / 144 bpm). Strong vibes and guaranteed sunshine for all tribal dancers.

Track 6) “Optimistic II”: for this one, Astral Waves collaborated with Mobitex (aka Eyal Markovich) from Israel —a country that knows a thing or two about psychedelic music. While managing to keep a very musical feel, this track is a deep dive into modern dub-trance electronica (115 bpm).

Track 7) “Inflation Eternelle II”: here we have an Astral Waves version of a joint creation made with top producer Astropilot, and originally published on the “Fall” compilation (released in 2015). Soaring melody lines and poignant key changes take this track to the next level. Clocking in at 112 bpm, get ready for an epic and beautiful excursion into sound, unfolding for your dancing pleasure.

Track 8) “Les Liens du Sang (Profondita remix)”: a stunning remix (110 bpm) taken from the last album by Astral Waves (“Magnetique”, published in 2015). With its gorgeous Goa style bass lines, dubbed out arpeggios, and emotive build ups, this track is a pure delight to bring to completion this one-of-a-kind album…

…………

In conclusion, Genesis takes you on a voyage through the dawn of time, to the emerging of tribal trance music and spiritual consciousness in various cultures, and ultimately, to mankind’s reaching to the stars. It’s a journey you’ll want to take again and again, surfing the Astral Waves created by Canada’s very own DJ Zen!

ALWOODS “Stardust” – CD and digital 24bits – Out Now |ARCDA65|

Out now the new ALWOODS album “Stardust” !

About:

Alwoods (John Rigas of Greece) is a man who needs no introduction. As an artist and DJ he makes no compromises when it’s time to rock the dance-floor, and is known as one of the ‘go-to’ artists for raising the vibration through perfect dance-floor friendly grooves.

After his universally acclaimed releases “Aeolian Mode” and “Long Life Forest”, Alwoods latest stellar tracks have been tested everywhere on planet for the last four years, as he’s toured relentlessly on the psytrance festival circuit..

His new album “Stardust” is a major release guaranteed to set dance-floors on fire this summer and create a new level of psychedelic experience for lovers of slow trance, mid-tempo and progressive chill. Alwoods fans are in for a treat as are those who will be discovering the man and his work for the very first time.

While on tour he discovered new production and composition techniques experimenting and collaborating with fellow musicians, and it really shows on this album. He’s also upgraded his studio gear along with his production skills, all for our listening pleasure. And the reactions have been off the charts for one simple reason: this is an exceptional album full of groovy signature Alwoods vibes not to be missed.

“Stardust” is presented in the form of a hero’s journey: exploring the outer reaches of space -with all the thrill of new discoveries- from light, to darkness, and back to light. It’s a journey you’ll want to take again and again, as it’s filled with revelations that are revealed with each new listen.

In classic Alwoods style, deep, trippy vibes connect the listener to the celestial spheres and a higher consciousness, while the driving beat keeps things very much dance-floor friendly, allowing for a unique and uplifting collective trance experience.

All songs are in the well known 4/4 Alwoods style with a fantastic use of digital and analog sounds, polished in the mastering lab of Altar Records by DJ Zen in 24bits pristine audio.

There are shimmering, atmospheric textures that combine with pulsing rhythms and solid drum programming, like the beating of a universal heart radiating purpose and luminescence. And the title track (‘Stardust’) is a mid-tempo groover featuring a snaky bass line, synth stabs, and dubbed out fx. It strikes an incredible balance between the original Goa Trance ethos and the newer Progressive Chill approach to production….a rich and rewarding experience that oscillates between edginess and resolution.

John’s new album is for keeps and the culmination of his years of production and touring experience. Get some audio magic in the form of “Stardust” in your ears today and experience an inspiring gift from the stars!

Winter
Various Artists – Feb 2017

Brought to you by Altar Records:

Sounds, for your body, mind and spirit

Another trip around the sun means that the final installation of the ‘Season Series’ is ready to see the light of day! Altar Records chief (DJ Zen) has done an amazing job of once again compiling the finest ambient/ psychill/ downtempo tracks available with each season’s unique feel in mind for your listening pleasure.

The goal has always been to keep each compilation distinct yet related to the other releases. And each release in this wonderful series has been an opportunity to dance with the seasons through beautiful music -what better way to celebrate? Thus the Winter compilation presents a shimmering array of tracks as unique and beautiful as snow flakes, with sparkling leads, heavenly pads, gentle washes of sound, and pulsing rhythms that raise the spirit ever higher. These are tracks that could play like a soundtrack to the dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis.

Featured artists this time around include some of the most respected psy ambient producers on the planet, including: Argus, Profondita, Suduaya, Sufi’s Life & Merlin, Lab’s Cloud, Unusual Cosmic Process, Asura and Astropilot…talk about a stellar way to warm things up!

In the Northern latitudes, Winter means lots of crystalline, fluffy snow that blankets the landscape. By mid-Winter, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, as everything gets transformed into something monochrome and dream-like. The season also brings welcome days of clear blue skies and sunshine, along with fierce storms and freezing temperatures that invite you to stay warm and cozy around the fire (with your favourite soundtrack playing in the background of course).

It’s an inspiring time of year if you tune into the child-like wonder around you, and the sounds being presented on this latest release perfectly encapsulate all of that magic through each artist’s interpretation.

…some closing words from DJ Zen:

“A massive thanks goes to the participating artists that cooked up some serious and groovy beats for this closing cd of the series! It’s been such an amazing trip and big pleasure to craft these four compilations for you all. Nature’s splendour -at least in the Northern Hemisphere- always amazes me with its sublime beauty and power. The artwork and mastering for each compilation also got a lot of attention and love to reflect each season’s mood and feeling. Thanks for joining us on this journey and get ready for the next Altar compilation: “Serial Chillers” (Top 50 Psychill tracks), scheduled to be released digitally in March 2017!”

So, without any further ado, let’s tune into the magic of this latest release…Enjoy!

This CD comes in a glossy deluxe eco-wallet with gorgeous artwork. Limited to 500 copies. Get yours while you can.

|ARCDA64| Abiogenesis “Biosynthesis” – CD and digital 24/48Khz Out Now

Altar Records presents “Biosynthesis”, by Abiogenesis.

a·bi·o·gen·e·sis
noun
Abiogenesis: the natural process by which life arises…

Calling all lovers of deep, cosmic, tripped out ambient and downtempo…Altar Records is proud to present “Biosynthesis” -the highly anticipated and latest album by CJ Catalizer (aka Dmitriy Neschadim).

Hailing from Moscow, Dmitriy is known for his transcendental musical vision and devoted fan base…and with good reason: he’s been on the receiving end of glowing reviews in the international Psy Ambient scene since he first set out to create his unique brand of sonic psychedelia several years ago.

This time out, he’s changing things up with a new artist name: Abiogenesis – a process which describes the origin of life on this planet some 4 billion years ago…and (drum roll) “…in the beginning, there was sound….!”

And what a sound we’re treated to on his latest studio adventure, as Abiogenesis makes good use of his trademark soaring, hypnotic arpeggios that feature silky smooth glassy sounds contrasted with more acidic lines that interweave in perfect harmonic bliss.
These are long, dreamy, yet engaging ambient and downtempo tracks where the melody and mood are the deciding factors and drive things along nicely, finely tuned to the visionary worlds of the ‘third eye’.

Complemented by subtle use of female chants that give things a human and epic touch, along with pertinent chord changes, a tight, bouncy kick, heavenly pads, and big washes of sound that drift off into infinity, “Biosynthesis” is a masterful album and a true sonic delight that unfolds in the most patient, and yet powerful way imaginable.
Abiogenesis has once again managed -in expert fashion- to create a flawless tapestry, easing the listener into new sonic horizons that will delight for years to come. In short, this is audio nirvana for your daily mana.

Featuring outstanding and crystalline sound presented in 24bits / 48.000Hz, Dmitriy Neschadim’s third full length album was mastered by none other than fellow psy ambient alchemist Dimitriy Redko (@ Astropilot Studio).

The buzz on the streets is that “Biosynthesis” is set to be released at large on January 27th, 2017, so mark your calendars, and get ready to take part in this most epic and ambient musical journey that’s guaranteed to bring you back to your roots and set your spirit free!
