Keemiyo

Biography

Dancing Chakras is the result of years experimenting with music creation and exploring into the energy of the chakras.
The process has been developed through meditation on each of the chakras, practicing a breathing exercise in each of them to allow the inspiration and creative flow arising from the origin of each energy center.

Each chakra is in tune with their respective note: The first in C, the second in D, E in the third, fourth in F, G in the fifth, sixth in A and seventh in B. The tempo increases as we move upward through the chakras so as to reach the seventh chakra we are at a rate of 144 bpm.

This work is a vehicle that can transport you to the state of consciousness known as trance, through dance, focusing our attention and breath on each of the chakras and allowing the body to express naturally.

This release comes with a book where Keemiyo explains each Chakra in detail.
Will be published in all Spanish talking countries by AlphaOmega together with the album on CD.

Audiomatic

Biography

Looking back on more then one decade of intense involvement in the Trance scene, Benjamin Halfmann aka Audiomatic witnessed the rich evolution of this sub culture with all its innovations, variations and all its ups and downs. Even more: During the years his project constantly gained quality and became a reference for sophisticated, high-functional Progressive Trance.

Therefore Audiomatic became an integral ingredient of this scene and has shaped its musical development with his unique sounds which have been part of legendary parties and festivals in 14 countries around the globe.

It all started with some powerful Heavy Metal: Benjamin Halfmann banged his head to the music of AC/DC and posters of Punk, Hardcore and Metal bands adorned the walls of his room up to the age of 15 years. Then he discovered the fascinating worlds of Psy Trance and rapidly became engaged as a DJ, first public performances followed in 1999.

But soon a strong desire to convert his creativity into own music arose, and so Audiomatic got hungry for more. His producer’s breakfast consisted of some tasty Fruity Loops and this simple production software instantly made him aware that the games on his computer were not only a waste of time, but also of hard disc space.

Not even one year later his music already convinced the label management of Leviathan Music and so the track “Woodstock” became the first official release in 2002. Various contributions on different compilations followed and the year 2004 delivered the first full length Album “Multiplayer”.

Together with Stefan “Magnetrixx” Lewin, who has always been a good friend and important source of inspiration for Benjamin Halfmann, the project “Audiomatrixx” was formed, gained euphoric feedback and also brought to life a studio album in 2008. The same year Audiomatic’s second album was released.

And that’s still not enough productivity: As a platform for musical variation and a reaction to the recent developments in the Progressive Trance scene, Benjamin Halfmann is now also running a side project under his civic name which dedicates rather techy and clubby tunes.

Hird

Biography

21 year old whiz kid Christoffer Berg, was born and raised by two musicians in Gothenburg, Sweden. Growing up in a musical environment made it possible for C to play around with music from the early days of childhood, which might explain his relaxed attitude towards creating music. Multitalented as he is – C does everything himself; drums, percussion, keyboards, guitar and vocals – he makes music production seem effortless and filled with joy. Lately the club scene in Gothenburg has been totally dominated by C and his childhood friends Andreas Saag and Yukimi Nagano amongst others. They set out on their quest for musical world domination years ago as Swell Session and have recently produced music – collectively and individually – to great critical acclaim.

”We were a couple of friends who enjoyed playing together. Within our small community we could bounce musical ideas and try things out in a safe environment, which helped us create our own style.”

His first own release – the very limited ”Hostlovep” on Conceptional Recordings under the alias ”Christoffermusik” –with its beautifully organic and mellow experimental electronic tracks, revealed what was to be expected in the future. Using the pseudonym Christoffer Brus, C continued to put out more of that fragile and intriguing stuff on the Björk collaborator Thomas ”Opiate” Knak’s label, Hobby Industries.

C has also been known to contribute with excellent tracks on compilations.”Future Sound of Jazz 9” (Compost), ”Destination:Out” (ecco.chamber), Break n’ Bossa Chapter 6 (Schema) and ”Nordic Lounge 1 & 2” (DNM). These compilations helped spawn his latest alias – Hird. Now combining melodic harmonies with jazzy downtempo house, Christoffer captured the world’s attention. The instrumental housetrack ”Keep You Hird” was subsequently released with lyrics and vocals by Yukimi as ”Keep You Kimi” on DNM. This stunning vocal track was favoured by DJ:s like Richard Dorfmeister, Gilles Peterson, Coldcut, Michael Reinboth and Derrick May and was a contributing factor for the offers to tour Japan no less than three times in the last year.

Autumn 2003 Hird released his second 12”, ”I Love You My Friends”. This release was really a Ep with four different tracks, ranging from dub to deep house, each showing the versatility of the young artist and what to expect from his full album. The tunes “Fading Blues” and “I love you my friends” got massive support from the dj community around the globe and became a favourite track for radio legend Gilles Peterson (Worldwide/BBC).

Christoffer is a busy young man, besides making his own music he have been doing remixes for acts like Koop, Plej and Ennio Morricone aswell as dj:ing around the globe. He is now rehearsing with the live act to get it ready for the album release. The set up will include some of the most talented and well respected jazz musicians from Sweden as well as childhood friend Yukimi Nagano on vocals. Planned tour start is autumn 2004 at time of the release of “Moving On”, the debut album from Hird.

The live line-up has always been very flexible, varying from Perch and a vocalist for sound-system gigs, to the full lineup for larger events. From 2006 Molara concentrated on her solo projects and Zion Train live features a variety of renowned vocalists including Dubdadda alongside Earl 16 and YT.

Zion Train have been one of the planet's most prolific groups, along with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations they have produced magazines, CD-ROMs, Internet sites and built sound systems. Their early releases were on their own Universal Egg label, until in 1995 they signed to China Records. They released the world's first promotional dub music video for the 'Get Ready' single and caused a furore with the publicity campaign for their ‘Homegrown fantasy’ album. Back on their own Universal Egg label since 1999, they have continued to release quality dub, electronica and world dance music.

Their work from the past decade and a half still sounds fresh to today's discerning ears. 2005 saw the reissue of the bands seminal and long unavailable first and second albums; 'A Passage To Indica' and 'Natural Wonders Of The World In Dub' remastered and redesigned. 2006 saw the re-release of the third album 'Siren', which was thought by many to herald the birth of the dub-dance vibe that swept the globe in the 1990s. A new album entitled 'Live As One' was released in September 2007 and will be followed by a remix album - see below. ... September 2007 saw the release of the first album since 2002 .

Entitled ‘Live as One’ this is the ninth long player from the UK Dub collective since their 1992 debut ‘A Passage To Indica’. The band are back with a beautifully produced ‘New Roots’ release. ‘Live As One’ features seven vocalists in various styles. Seasoned performers Earl 16, Tippa Irie and Dubdadda are to be found alongside international stars, Raiz (Italy) and Marlene Johnson (Germany) and also strong newcomers YT and Lua. All bring sterling performances and an inspirational attitude to the album. Whether, it’s the beautiful tones of Earl, Marlene and Lua, the conscious, perceptive observations of YT, Tippa and Dubdadda or the dreamlike quality of Raiz. This album is the first produced solely by Neil Perch in the Zion Train studio in Cologne, Germany. Perch brings us an album that reassures but also pleasantly surprises; the Zion Train quality and ethos is still present and the depth and quality of musicianship is a revelation.

Musicians contributing include the usual, deep blowing brass section, Dave Fullwood and Bigga include P Lush, of Nucleus roots fame, on guitar, keyboards from Paolo Polcari of Almamegretta, drums from Vedran of the Radikal Dub Kolektiv and melodicas from Chasbo of the Bush Chemists. Featuring musicians from Italy, Germany, Croatia, Jamaica and the UK this is truly a world-dub production. ‘Live As One’ is released on Zion Train’s own Universal Egg imprint as well as on Zettai Mu Records in Japan , Invasion/Iguana Records in Mexico and Brazil Deluxe in Brazil.

Zenzile

Biography

After a thirteen years old career, including: seven albums, five Maxi LP's and hundreds of live concerts throughout the world, you would think you knew all about ZENZILE. However, those who have following this band since their beginnings in Angers, France, know well that: No one knows what will resemble a new album of Zenzile before it gets out. Instead of cloning their music precisely year after year, the quintet has always chosen to focus on their trade mark sound which is rich and various, thanks to a dazzling bass and whooping guitars.

From the start, Zenzile is having fun mixing the same influences (post punk, Dub,folk,soft rock,soul jazz) with a savvy sense of measuring them all out, in order to produce a unique album every time.

For Pawn Shop, the Angevins (from Angers) have deliberately let their POP spirit opened up, in an humble and formal way of course.Only two tracks are exclusively instrumental and are welcome signs of a previous life. All eight other tracks are carried by the voices of olds partners: Jamika Ajalon et David K. Alderman (Warehouse), demonstrating some new and unexpected sides of their talent.This eighth studio album is less angular and more confident than the previous Living in Monochrome in which the band had let the guitar lead out.Today Zenzile seems to have found the right balance between staying simple while being demanding.Strings and organs are more present than ever to form melodies never dared before.Evidently freed from any past inhibitions, the band now sweats out many old legendary Vinyl albums, reminiscent of their teen age years. Shadowy organs, bony guitars, ramping bass, Bela Lugosi spirit glides above Pawn Shop.

There are also lingering feverish memories of ESG, Pink Floyd, Nick Cave or PIL but everything is digested and sublimated only to be more accomplished. With a real consistency throughout the entire album, despite the variety of sounds, you never feel like you are loosing tracks.Each song has its own space and there is space for each song.From the very Serge Gainsbourg inspired Mind Over Matter to the lively Fire Eater, you will feel the majestic of Histoire de Papiers or the disturbance of Crooked Man, always sensing a serious focus on the subject.

Remarkable finish from Zenzile with Thursday Night Rover Disco where Alderman's voice reminds the one of his Welsh fellow J. Cale (The Velvet Underground) before the last Caution Horses where the singer throws himself out in a long, progressive and flamboyant post folk rise. With Pawn Shop, Zenzile leaves all the cash on the table and walks out with style...at least for now.

Phony Orphants

Biography

Jeppe Ørnkilde (Dj jeppe) and Mikael Dahlgaard (Dj Emok) where at the forefront of developing the Progressive Scandinavian sound, which swept the world in the end of the 90s and the start of the new millennium.

In 98 the Iboga studio was formed and soon after the boys had their first releases coming out on various labels such as Transient, Aries, Plastic Park, Nanobeat (formed by Dj Jeppe), Plusquam and of course Iboga Records( formed by Banel & Emok). In Iboga Records the boys had the perfect platform for making their mark on the electronic music scene, and with their now classic debut album Symphony, they did just that. US organizer, Gaian Mind wrote: Since their first release appeared in 1999, Phony Orphants have crafted a fat, driving sound which rocks every dance floor! With a wide variety of influences and styles, expect a journey from bouncy progressive trance, through groovy electro inspired tunes and funky house beats - psychedelically enhanced! Pumping, grooving electronica at its finest!

An extensive tour followed to promote the album, which took the boys around the world to big festivals and parties like Voov in Germany, the Outback eclipse in Australia, Utage In Japan and the Equinox in Mexico. The 2nd album ECT was released in 2005, a far more Electro and House inspired bunch of tracks but still very much in tune with the classic progressive Iboga sound. The album went down well with crowds around the world and saw the Orphants take their live set skills to new levels.

After 2 years of touring the boys needed new inspiration and felt the project would bennefit with a rest, so in 2007 Emok started his own solo project Maelstrom, and released his first album called Maelstrom in 2008 followed by the second album "Lights On" in 2009. After times of change and personal projects the boys have set up a new studio in Copenhagen and have finished writing their 3rd album called: Computer Music, released in December 2009! With the new album the guys are going back to the progressive trance roots, with a bang on fat production that will blow your mind.

Koan

Biography

Producing sophisticated psychedelic Chill Out music is a discipline within the electronic music scene that is similar to playing Jazz in a certain respect: It needs maturity and extensive musical experience to go beyond the scope of standards, to become really good and extraordinary. This might have to do with the fact that this kind of music is not aiming a busy dance floor, rising its hands and shouting out loud during the breaks. Instead of that, it is made for the individual mind and therefore includes a less functional but pretty intellectual, mature and also very artistic moment. Seen in front of this background, the history of Koan gives some interesting hints about the astonishing musical quality of this Russian duo.

The early ninties with their wild and excessive Techno parties, exotic culture artifacts of another world, that brought Daniel Roeth to the scene: he experienced electronically generated Hard-Trance and Acid-Techno in the underground clubs of Moscow as a passionate DJ. Discovery of the fascinating creative possibilities that were offered by the tracker programs, first widespeard form of software based audio sequencers, some time later, made him neglect the turntables more and more often to dive deeper and deeper into his very own universe of sounds instead. In this situation it was only a question of time until he met William Grey known as dr. Klaxer, who was an essential part of the Demo-scene in later part of 80's.

In those days Grey programmed his own 8-bit musical codes for Atari-800, Commodore-64, wrote PC tracker-modules and worked on experimental sound-design for independent gaming-industry. William always successfuly combined musical activity with his main work at ambulance service in Moscow as doctor. And his noisy-experimental solo-project called "Paranorma" dedicated to contemporary medical elaborations and real ambulance sound-atmospheres.

Joining their creative energies in a mutual studio in 1993 Roeth & Grey brought three projects to life: Vacuum Stalkes follows the idea of "Digital Dance Sampledelica" or "Digital Techno", which is Progressive in the original meaning of the term, Fatum Sci-Fi is a project dedicating abstract noise experiments, IDM and Minimal and finally the Chill Out project Koan became the most popular of these three. Beside these activities, Daniel Roeth is also busy with composing music for video games and Russian documentary films. In the end of 2008 Roeth & Grey launched new electro/minimal-progressive studio-act under eponymous alias.

After sixteen years of constant evolution, of trying and testing different hardware and software and finding the limits of their possibilities have formed a sound that is outstanding both in the ideas and arrangements behind it as well as its production quality. So Koan today represents top-notch Chill Out music that seeps into the listener's mind with touching harmonies and a mind bending brilliance. Beside being highly active in Russia, the duo has also chilled numerous international Trance festivals around the globe. When the Silence is Speaking (CD album) [2009] Blue Tunes Recordings.. Matching the cold, dark and rather silent indoor season in the northern hemisphere, Blue Tunes Records presents the perfect acoustic accessories for easy evenings at home, meditative hours or cosy togetherness in front of the fireplace. The Russian Chillout phenomenon called "Koan" was formed by top producers duo Roeth & Grey and has been exploring the possibilities of electronic sound creation for more than 16 years. As Koan Roeth & Grey developed an outstanding, non-typical and independent style.

Founded on hovering bass lines and ethno flavoured percussions, their fourth album evolves complex, ever changing and highly harmonic arrangements in seemingly endless acoustic spaces of floating ecstasy. According to the Blue Tunes sound policy, the production quality really provokes a psychedelic effect just by its astonishing brilliance. Beside a series of entirely new tracks inspired by Greek mythology, "When The Silence Is Speaking" also features some "blue mixes" - fresh re-interpretations of tunes from Koan's first album "Talking Stones" which was dedicated to ancient Japanese culture, they illustrate the continuous gain of universal ethnic musical skills...

Narcophone

Biography

Christophe started the music when he was 6 years old. After 8 years of classical piano, he got involved in several different musical experiences for almost a decade (a jazz trio, the school big band orchestra then a heavy metal band and a dub-reggae project).

This quest for diversity drove him finally to a psy-trance festival in 1999 where he immediately fell in love with the superb fusion of styles that this music represents. So, he quickly bought a computer to start experimenting a lot of ideas he had in mind for years and at the same time he starts spinning around in small underground parties He also learnt a lot about sound-engineering thanks to books, artist-friends, and other tutorials.

Then, after a few years of nervous breakdown and states of euphoria, he released his first tracks at the end of 2005. His unique style (a crossover between neo fullon and scandinavian progressive trance) brought him several bookings in Europe and South America where the crowd reacted in a very positive way. He's actually working on his second album which will be released at the end of next year.
