While the term ‘World Music’ became a dirty word by the late 80s onwards, the ground-breaking work of producer Steve Coe and his partner, Sheila Chandra as Monsoon, spread beyond their1981 hit with Ever So Lonely, to be literally the originators about all that was good in the merging of dub, dance and ethnic music.Expanding this to it’s maximum through the idea of a full orchestra, The Dream mixes duggis, shenai, tabla, conga and guitar through Indian raga and European rhythm structures to create a unique musical vision.Discovered and championed by a young Daniele Baldelli, this is our 2nd release to of been defined as a “Cosmic Classic”, however, that would be too narrow a description. Long known to more open minded collectors and DJs, the whole EP has long been sought after and staple of many sunset and sunrise experiences.This release takes this further with the little known and in this longer version, previously unreleased addition in The Calling. Essentially an ambient version of The Dream, to some this will be the real gem of the EP. Extended especially for this release by The Invisible Hands, it’s title is apt.They also turn the respectful scapel to the raga of Meditasian. Originally the B side to The Dream and at over 24 minutes infamously packaged with what turned out to be vinyl warping incense that was designed to be lit for it’s journey. For our release we have edited it to a shorter meditative length that still grasps it’s depth. Enjoy, but be careful with the incense this time!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the bass bins, Mysticisms brings the latest in the Dubplate series. After the success of the first, Persian returns with a second 10” of reggae inspired electronics, covering Bass, Breaks, Digidub and now also, Jungle.Taking no prisoners with the massive opener Survival Dub, Persian marries classic breakbeats and toasting to bouncing, dance floor effect. THE party starter. This is followed by Smoke Mari, a looping steppas of FX and breaks to lay down the Dubplate clash.As ever the link between rave, breaks and sound system culture is explored, this time with the Roots’n’Lovers opening of There Is No Love giving way to a Junglist drop lifting up a beautiful soul sermon.Finally, taking it all down, things wrap with the deep, sampledelic dub of Zatoichi’s Troubles. With a bass to destroy many a speaker, it’s lanquidity morphs from the EP’s hedonism of Soundclash styles to a gliding “tokers delight”.Smoke the Mystery.
