This melody builds around a male sample (which says something in a language not known to me), combining synthetized guitars with echoing keyboards and dripping percussion. It is a journey song with many soundscapes; psybient at its finest.
With its almost ritualistic mood, this 90s big beat electro masterpiece exhibits some amazing use of percussion, meshed together with a highly energetic and uplifting soundscape. Stand up, close your eyes and move your body.
This song comes from one awesome album (“The Fat of the Land”). I strongly recommend giving a spin to the entire thing.
Sweeping melodies and an adventurous bass line contribute to this song’s exploratory mood. Let the vibe flow and energize this moment.
Flow rather than dance, soar rather than fly, live rather than listen. Follow the mystic chants inviting your imagination for a dance through nourishing beauty. It may be dark and overwhelming at times, but no story is without contrast. And when that gateway opens and shines its vibration through your every fiber, you know you’re on the right frequency.
This ritualistic, hypnotic dance could impress 37-dimensional alien priests. It powers through the multiverse with bursts of lower vibrations and then begs entrance to the Quantum Cathedral of Everything and Everytime by beaming her voice through every consciousness that ever truly understood its innocence.
Despite it being a playful song from start to finish, there’s still a certain solemnity about it. Perhaps it’s the otherworldly chants and voices, or maybe it’s the thump’n’bass foundation. It’s a melody of delicate contrast. Dance the river sisters!
Psybient is a Journey Genre. This means that most psybient songs are Transporters. Where (and when) they Transport you is mostly up to your own imagination and experience. This song has all the hallmarks of an excellent Transporter: incantations, choirs, a wide array of playful instruments, multiple sound planes, a diverse, inspired orchestration and, of course, awesome rhythms and bass.
There are many kinds of Healing Songs. Powerful or unstoppable, divine or mystic, calming or embracing, tender or humble. There are Healing Songs for all sorts of hurts.
This vulnerable gem is here to seed the hope. All around us, there are unseen gifts that time allows us to witness in this life. This is one of them. When words fail, just lie down, open up and let yourself be soothed.
Now here’s a trip if there ever was one! This baby will take you away, far away and then even further away and when you think it’s done, it’ll take you another couple of Universes away and just when you thought you landed, it’s gonna take flight again and drag you another dozen Universes in X directions at once, where X is the number of multiverse dimensions you’re in, factorial!
Musically, what we have here is a steady and unstoppable flowing song of devious construction. Layers upon layers of deep, suggestive sounds are quietly shifting into existence. I’ve measured the song with my Spirit Buoyancy Meter and it scored a juicy 83 kiloquantiverses. Not bad, not bad at all!
Prepare to sink in, to take off, to slow down towards a climax speeding straight at your heart. The molten rock core vibe carries an angel’s voice. Wavy planes of sound spiral around the thumping bass pillar while playful happenings wander here and there. The storm of butterflies dances to the magical flutes. Shine your consciousness within this vibrating cathedral.
It’s one of those songs that made me contact the artist and thank him for creating such music; a short celebration of life, of thankfulness towards being able to perceive and appreciate art. And a winner of my Song of the Year prize!
Mystical choirs, check. Lush, satisfying electronica percussion, check. A wide array of tribal and symphonic instruments to enhance the atmosphere, check. A talented, inspired musician to put it all together, check. And that’s how we’re gifted with a solid and I do mean solid psybient song.
