Just thought I'd share my dj set! I did this mix a few months back while working on VA - Rest in Pieces.
Hope you enjoy the dark groovez!
Heres the link to download the set:
And I would also take this oppurtunity to share with you something even more important!
Many times I have been asked, why do I produce such dark ghastly muzik?!! Why can't I make some reiki or hindustani music which instantly heals the soul and provides nourishment?
The answer to this question is bit philosophical and also quite true (so i believe!)
Apart from being a fantastical psychedelic journey through the cult and craziness of the Agh0Ra belief system, this project also highlights the truth in the deep truths presented by this system of thought.
I would quote one of the on-going conversations I am having with a new friend Dana
Yes I've read bits and pieces of Paramahansa Yogananda and also lived
in Ashrams in South India and Pondicherry when i was a bit younger.
I then travelled to Australia and lived in and around Byron Bay and
got influenced by the Shamanism practiced around those parts.
Finally after almost 6 years of spiritual study i returned back to my
city of Mumbai.
Oh it was horrifying !! Dirty streets, garbage every where, technology
and pollution holding hands...and inspite of this I found quite a few
amount of people satisfied with their life and happy from inside..
Anyways, yes its true this music comes out to sound dark and intense
when listened by already enlightened Ones and is more for the children
who are badly affected by technology and terror around. We hope to
send this message to them via music they might more appropriately want
to listen to -
There is a time and space possible to exist, when nothing can hurt you
and you laugh!!
You laugh at everything thats going wrong, and you laugh at everything
that is good. Because good and bad do not exist, it is all an
illusion. And this is the purpose of such intense frequencies, to
Just like mother Kali, She laughs!! Yes there are demons around, but
ofcourse they shall be conquered, and what is left is the laughter!
Laughter of victory, laughter of madness and finally laughter of peace
So this is how the concept of dark psychedelic music arose, it is the
left hand of musical world. It can be used for a wrong purpose, but it
can also be used for good and is very powerful either way.
We on our part, impart a spiritual feel and theme to the music in some
manner and make sure the audience is guided towards the light. No
matter how many demons they have inside them, they have to be balanced
out. Once a balance of some sort has been achieved in an individual
clearly living in the "Ghor Kaliyug", it is possible then for this
individual to look inwards and find beauty and peace...
Anyways, I totally agree with your wisdom about Inner revolution, but
some people do not ever even think about seeking it, and have to be
guided by a powerful force to go in that direction, and that is what
sonic tantra is about.
I leave you with this to contemplate about and share your wizardom on this as well :)
