Terrordisco - Shortwave

here's a great / experimental mix from Terrordisco a.k.a. Sveinbjörn from Reykjavík, Iceland. He contacted me after hearing Abel's last mix for the growing bin describing "Short Waves" with words like this: "It's kinda conceptual, rooted in memories of playing around with shortwave radios when I was a kid."
Yep, that's what it is! And it's full of wonderful bittersweet moments....
Please check it out!! It's a highly entertaining piece of art
Thanks Sveinbjörn!!

The Cosmic Equation

More Lasry for synth fanciers. This one is from 1976 on the RCA Victor production media label. Lots of spacy noodling and some fine percussion on a few tracks. Lasry is credited with all instruments except bass which is covered by Jannick Top. Lasry's instrumental credits include reeds (flute, sax, and clarinet), mallets (marimba and percussion), keys (synths, clavinet, electric piano and piano). Some nice long tracks are included with this release, so it's one of my favorite Lasrys.

Miguel - Breathing The Rain Drop

Some time ago I got this this lovely ambient mix from my friend Miguel, who is a music promotor in Oporto, Portugal working with onedotzero and arquivo, organizing listening sessions and daily playlists.
I liked it so much that i asked permission to post it here and that's what I'm doing now. Thanks Miguel!

"Breathing the rain drop" is a wonderful deep meditation and the only cure against this hectic internet life.
Go dive.....

Krautberry Jams

Blitz is the third album from Thirsty Moon. This one is a full instrumental set with the Drogies brothers Jürgen and Norbert on guitars and drums. Unfortunately these are the only credits given for this release with the exception of the artwork on the cover credited to Gil Funccius. Lots of moogery and stellar drumming on all tracks. Longest track on the record, The Jungle of your Mind, is a showcase for the band's percussion mastery. My copy of this record was an Australian release on the Clear Light of Jupiter label. It was released in 1976 which was also the year of the original release on Brain.

how does Brown taste?

maybe Jan Huydts knows? Or Ali Haurand or Leo De Ruyter?? Maybe you'll know after listening to this fine piece of experimental jazz from 1970? Released on the tiny JG label (Jazz Groove... yep it got some groove as well) this record does not wait in every box at the fleamarket, so I thought sharing it would be a nice thing to do.
If you dug this post over here and you wanted it a little less sweet then check out Brown Taste. It's completely different.... Most definitely something for fans of Third Eye. (Hyutds and Haurand were founding members).
Enough of the namedropping - go beg for a link in the comments ....

cheers, Basso

Cosmic Estonia

Hingus was the first solo release by Estonian keyboard wiz, Sven Grünberg. Synthesizers are the only musical component of this production. This rip is slightly stretched. Nothing wrong with longer jams.
