Music to feed your mind and soul

Yesterday I felt like stretching my limbs and dancing, today I yearn for feeding my mind and emotions.

Starting off with Dailon and his Conscioushift EP released a few days ago on Urban Waves Records. Powerful, cosmic neon trips in crunky 8-bit staffage with absolutely amazing synths. I can't even mention my personal highlight of the 6-track EP - all of them offer top-notch listening experience and all of them have their own unique style. One of the best releases this year without a doubt.  Peeps, don't sleep on this and hurry to bandcamp. For a limited period of time you can get this for free, but I strongly encourage you to support the efforts the artist put into creation of this beautiful music.

More conscious-expanding music comes from Mexicans With Guns and amzing remix of Jorge Reyes & Samuel Zyman's Burning the Codices. Tribal chants in a beautifully rolling bass-heavy / beatz interpretation - this is the mixture I really dig. Ernest Gonzales from MWG writes: I recently watched The Other Conquest, a film by Salvador Carrasco, about the Spanish conquest of Mexico. I was inspired by a haunting song on the soundtrack called "Burning the Codices." Using the beginning part of the song with the Indian drumming and chanting, I created a remix that I'd like to share with you."

Acid House is baaaaack thanks to gendre-bending Numbers from Glasgow and DJ Pierre who presents new release in the best style of  classic '80s Acid House, to drop August, 8th on 12" and digital - check Numbers site for details. Listen to the preview of Pierre's Phantasy Club - Mystery Girl (Set Me Free) along with Seiji's refix. I LIKE! DJ Dibbler from Glasgow writes in a note accompanying this release that "acid house music will never die" - I tend to agree with him. Definitely it will outlive all this shitty / indie / boring / copy-cat rock bands with their miserable rock'n'roll which I can't stand anymore.

Finally after powerful and successful acid trip, we steer to more laidback waters courtesy of The Walton Hoax duo (Jeroen Vande Voorde and Peter van Ewijk) hailing from Antwerp (Belgium). The Chemical Burn EP, released on !mpact Recordings offers a mixture of 2-step, UKG, dubstep, ambient and electronica with singer-songwriter vocals, which surprisingly works very well. The title track is already on heavy rotation in my player. I keep my fingers crossed for this project, we would definitely see more goodies coming from them in the future.

Video of the title track has already made quite a fuss in the interweb thanks to its mesmerizing appeal.
