:: 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…

AKSHAN “World of Duality” out now!

Altar Records is very proud to offer you the latest compositions from Akshan, wrapped up in a Deluxe Digipack with a beautiful design by Aleksandar Zlateski and DJ Zen.

BP: https://www.beatport.com/label/altar-records-ca/43621

After 5 years of silence, while in the meantime, Akshan left us with his deeply enjoyed first album “Tree of Life” which was crafted of delicious ambient and down tempo tribal grooves. Shortly after this album, his landmark album “The Rise of Atlantis” was released. Today, the master is back with another conceptual album!

This time we’ll dive into the dualism of life, the coexistence of opposite forces and thoughts that drives all forms of life on Earth. The subject is vast and was masterfully designed in a fieriest auditory experience by our dear French artist.

“World of Duality” was in the making over 4 years, and again certainly proves that Akshan is way ahead of his pals with his talents, as he crafts us with his own unique beats, ambiances and melodies.

This album sweats true maturity and it seems that Akshan became aware of his dual nature, while he began to transcend it and was able to express his feelings through the music.
His sound is one of a kind and like a lone angelic knight opening new horizons for us to discover, he amazes us again!

PART 1 : Down-tempo
1 – Welcome as You Are (122bpm)
2 – La Conscience de l’Espace (120bpm)
3 – World of Trouble (125bpm)
4 – Time for Change (125bpm)

PART 2 : Trance
5 – The Other Side (130bpm)
6 – Underworld (130bpm)
7 – Rebirth (130bpm)
8 – Time is Unity (130bpm)

“Duality is an essential feature of the human mind. Our mind makes use of duality to understand the world, to make sense of it.

Had our mind not been dual, I don’t think we could ever possibly describe the world around us. There would be no language, no words, no measurements, nothing. The mind is what it is because of duality.”

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!
