Various Artists - Ethneomystica Vol. 1

First and foremost, to all those who would say "hey ! It was psydub last week too !" I'd like to answer "Thank you for following" but also that I'm but a man, and when I'm handed a compilation full of groovy trippy psybient/psydub I just cannot resist. I listen, I download, I listen again, I share and I share again.

So here's Ethneomystica, the first volume. If you like free music as much as I do I'm sorry to say that volume 2 and 3 are excellent but not free.

They are out at Mystic Sound Records and compiled by Maiia, who seems to have an excellent taste in music. In this particular compilation you'll find well-known names such as Globular, Yechidah or Mahaon (a guy that makes wonderful music but that I cannot share efficiently because of technical issues with his Bandcamp page).

Enjoy yourself, it's on the house.

bioLuMigen - ..:tao:..

Each time I listen to this tiny album, I bite my fingers because there isn't more. These are my four favourite tracks at the moment.

Deep, finely crafted, dedicated to the old Laozi and his universal principle of balance, everywhere and nowhere at once, always invisible, yet always there, the Tao, these four compositions reach the summits of quality in terms of sonority, rhythm and musical science. A blend of psybient and traditional chinese music.

You'll see, when you'll have listened to these four, you'll want more, for sure. Unfortunately right now there is nothing more by bioLuMigen on Bandcamp. That is why I recommend visiting his Souncloud page, where you'll be able to find a couple of beautiful mixes among with some other tracks, most of them are available for free downloads. I just can't get enough of it.

HeapRize - Gang Sign$

I don't know for you, but I am warm inside, with kind of a virtual fireplace, remotely controlled, close-by, and I'm listening to Gang Sign$, a little pearl of hip-hop downtempo that could easily become the instrumental of some groovy rap music.

After a month of automated service (thank you technology), La Mojoteque is back with a human being at the controls.

Tenemos el control.

Long live love

Hedflux - In Retrospect

Here's an album that is almost impossible not to like. Just pressing play means that you want to pump up the atmosphere, you want to dance, to move, to wiggle-jiggle, to make light come out of your friends eyes as you say to them "here, listen to this one, I found it on La Mojoteque, it's amazing".

You can also use it to test your sound system, so as to see if it can go the distance.

Hedflux is a london-based producer that specialises in what we'll call psychedelic techno with a touch of electronifying vibes and a twist of technotronic voltage power. To say the least, it moves, it bumps, it goes in all directions, and there is a great probability that you will find yourself doing the same thing in less than a minute.

Best regards.
