ZEN LOUNGE album (Downtempo/Chill-Out)

ZEN LOUNGE album (Downtempo/Chill-Out) Scour the Internet, and you'll discover that "zen" is described as a direct, experiential realization of enlightenment through meditation. With this canny definition in mind, hats off to superlative Sydney-based label, Hypnotic Room, for achieving this state in just over an hour's listening bliss. It begins with the ethereal, vaguely aquatic wash of Zen Paradox's 'Tuna Head', which segues into the gentlest of breaks and gradually soars over a terrain reminiscent of Vangelis. Franck de Villeneuve's 'Mindtrip to the South' continues the water refrain and tangenti

Deep 1 EP featuring DJ Hi-Shock Remix

DJ Warp: DEEP 1 EP (incl. DJ Hi-Shock Remix) cat# elek018 Deep 1 EP kicks off with DJ Hi-Shock Remix, and as you would expect, Hi-Shock blatantly feels right at home remixing a track with such atmosphere. The track starts by building on the atmosphere created in the original with more useful reverb and effective panning, opening the stereo field.

Perfect for the transition into putting the dancefloor to work. Deep 1 Original Mix is s a sound scape of ph

Japan's DJ WARP releases Psychic Attack EP on Sydney label Elektrax

DJ Warp: Psychic Attack EP cat# elek016 This is the debut release from Takashi Watanabe aka. DJ Warp First two tracks on the Psychic Attack EP are hard-techno, the third one is deep-techno. This is the real deal old-school induced material that some call "proper-techno", not the squeeky, miminal kind that certain online shops refer to as Techno these days. Psychic Attack opens this package with that high screechy sound that Joey Beltram used to love (think the Luke Slater remix of Forklift but a bit warmer). A hard techno track that starts of scarce and cold but gets warmer as it builds. Definitely a track
