Some Psy to get you Excited...

Some Psy to get you Excited...

Postby Nokturnal » Sat Aug 18, 2007 11:51 pm

Norris and I had a blast at Motion Notion this year, James really out did himself and the weather was INTENSE but made for big adventures for sure.

We are now excited for our dub/glitch set at Shambhala on the Beach stage on Sunday, and of course taking part in the Green Moon (Green Sector & Moon Tribe, hello turbo sound rig!!) camp at Burning Man this August... now that's going to be one hot (+50 celcius, zero humidity is the forcast) and dusty week in the desert of Nevada. We will be wrapping up our summer festival season this year by playing at the Symbiosis gathering in California at the end of September so we are feeling very lucky for having so many incredible opportunities to play some tunes for folks.

I have a bunch of great photos from gatherings and festivals in my photo gallery, and I have just added a bunch from Motion Notion, you can find them here:

Description:

We are VERY happy with how our set came together for this years Motion Notion festival, so we decided to record it afterwards here at home and post it up for others to enjoy. This year we were wedged between two full-on psy performers, with Wizzy Noise being the act to follow us, so our set was meant to be a roller coaster through driving minimal tech, progressive and full-on psy. Add to that the fact that our set started out with hot dry sky's filled with stars and ended during a MASSIVE rain/thunder storm with tornado warnings for the area in effect... talk about INTENSE!!!! In the end our laptop finally stopped working and our fear was that it had actually shorted out due to the rain but the next day it started up without a hitch which was a HUGE relief. Our goal was to keep everyone engaged, twist a few noodles and not burn people out on the full-on. From all the super-positive feedback I think we managed to kick some ass!! Many of the tracks are killer classics, with a few shinny new ones thrown in, and the overall flow is a bit of a journey so sit back and imagine the thunder clouds closing in from behind, and as the mix ends the rain is coming down with a vengeance and the clouds are swirling with the threat of tornadoes. They don't call us Sons of Aurora for nothing....

Enjoy!!

Sick, Sick, Sick -

As I write this I am in a tugboat doing an assist job off of the Coast.
Heres the situation:

Large container ship, lost steering hydraulics we hooked up last night, and are now putting 22000 Horsepower to the water to pull this thing to safety. two caterpillar 3616 diesels are screaming at 105%. (thats over 145DB in the engine room)

So we have a 24000 Watt stereo with like 30 speakers above to blast dampening sound waves to quite it down. In addition to dampening it can play music over the noise, at the same time. Right now we are smashing through 50 foot swells, the rookies are barfing and we are all listening to this mix.

As I have swayed to the green side - I saddens me that we are burning diesel at the rate of 14 gallons a minute. (faster than a garden hose can deliver) But break up a 1000 foot container ship on the rocks and see what happens, so I guess this is the lessor of two evils.

And thanks to Globalstar - i am streaming this on a satphone. So at least we are doing it all in style I love technology
I love it -

Holy crap... that's one very surreal post to read!!!

It's still hard for me to wrap my brain around how connected we are as a species right now... hopefully that connection remains relatively unchained.

Here's wishing you a safe return to land my friend. =)

Hey I think I know that guy - Norris is it? The asian guy on the left in the first post.
Does he live in Northern British Columbia, or did he two summers ago? It would line up - I caught a ride to a party on top of a mountain on the Sunshine Coast with a psy-trance dj named 'Nori'.
I'd really like to get in touch cause he gave me two mix cds one of which I still listen to all the time, I've always really wanted a track listing.

Dude, Nok! We've been streaming your "Area 709 Radio" on two machines in the house for a week straight. Fantastic mix! My ears have not been bored once! :) Several of our friends have come through and been taken by the stream as well, and have asked about it. I've emailed the link to several of them already. Keep it up!

Hey thanks. =)

We work our asses off, and all the guest mixes on the site are hand picked by our team, so it's very time consuming but very worth while when I hear comments like yours.
