Erik De Castro Lopo introduced me to http://ektoplazm.com, a … sharing site for all styles of psy trance. Most importantly, the recordings there are a) free, b) licensed usually with the Creative Commons Attributions license, and c) really great stuff. So after collecting a suitable quantity I put together a new mix and it all sort of went together pretty quickly.
I’ve tried trawling through Jamendo, but I find it lacks quality control – there’s some good stuff there but it’s buried under mountains of badly-labelled, badly-produced, amateurish bleeps. I wholeheartedly support Magnatune but I find the subscription model annoying – I don’t like the feeling that I must slurp down another bunch of albums to get my money’s worth this month – strange as that may seem. So Ektoplazm has hit the spot on both counts – consistently good production quality and not feeling obliged to consume.
If there’s one theme I felt coming through while mixing this, it was the feeling that the rabbit hole goes much, much deeper than you expected to go…
This mix is released under the Creative Commons Attribution license.
Next step – passing this mix on to Ektoplazm itself…

I welcome any suggestions, criticisms and recommendations for new music to listen to. I will consider doing specific mixes for people, but this is only a hobby. Hope to hear from you.
