VA - First Light

This album I like. Very much. I've been listening to it in a loop for three days straight. Oh three very unproductive days they were, and I almost went crazy at some times, but First Light helped me get around it. The sun was shining, the chill was chilling and that was all that mattered.

Out at Expansions Collective, this compilation will take you to new heights of hip-hop and urban chill, that style of music that strangely makes me want to live in the city, whereas I thought that thought would never linger in my head. Go figure.

Saxophone, piano, hip-hop, the whole finely blended and beautifully crafted.

Sephira - Monkey Tales

State-of-the-art deep-trance, also called deep-tagada by the true goalords of ancient times. It was made to rumble the soul from the inside with cosmic vibration that go through dimensional planes with ease to get to the one where you're at right now.

If you like that kind of music I can recommend the albums Inner Thoughts by Cabeiri and Random Friday by Solar Fields (but those aren't free mind you).

Foreign Fields - What I Kept in Hiding

I've waited long for Foreign Field's new album (well, it's a year old so not really new, let's say latest) after listening to (and enjoying) the first one, Anywhere But Where I Am. Dim-lit atmospheres, half forest, half cottage. Half river, half mountain. Half small village, half snowy park in a city. Discover here another side of Foreign Fields, a tiny little bit more pop, but in a really enjoyable way.

I can't get tired of it.

The Bandcamp link is not free, and while six dollars for a release of this quality is really almost a gift, you can also download it for free on Noisetrade  and leave a tip (if you want to). Noisetrade is another gold mine of free music, where you can find just about anything.

Special mention to the song "Little Lover", really astounding.

Chronos - Technologia

Here is an absolutely flawless album, perfect, sublime. I just cannot get tired of it although I'm really trying. And I will probably add each and every track that composes it to the psybient/psydub playlist, because they are so... You know.

Chronos is one of the few artists at Mystic Sound Records who puts his albums at a free-price, whereas in fact his talent really has no price.

I'll let you judges.

Special mention to the tracks "Planetarium" and "Swinging Satori" that make my humble mortal soul shiver.
