As a long time listener of Liquid Mind, aka Chuck Wild, I have to admit that there is something about the music that he composes that simply harmonizes with the body and mind’s natural vibrations and just allows you to relax and destress to a remarkable degree. That’s not to say that other artists’ music doesn’t accomplish the same thing at times, but with Liquid Mind compositions it doesn’t appear to be happenstance that each album reaches that goal almost naturally.
Glimpses is the second album to be released on the Real Music label from The Haiku Project who is actually Danish musician Henrik Hytteballe. Glimpses is a twelve song, 70-minute peaceful journey that offers up a varied sound palette that is both relaxing and still able to hold the listener’s attention as it weaves a most thoughtful sonic space through well-written and produced music.
Sacred Earth is one of those groups whose compositions quite simply shift your consciousness immediately into a place of peace once the music starts to play. No matter what mood you might be in when you hit the play button, their songs will allow you to shed the distractions that we all seem to accumulate each day and bring out the inner you that is very often hidden away because there are so very few times during most days that we can relax and be who we truly are.
Bernward Koch has been a great artist for Real Music since he signed with the label way back in 1998, and he has created six wonderful albums since becoming part of the label. Remembering is the seventh and once again his music resonates with feelings and emotions signature to Koch.
While the artist known as Ashaneen may not be a household name in the new age/ambient community in the U.S., he has a rather large body of work available on his website through his Bandcamp page. Ashaneen, which means inner peace, is the artistic name of Piotr Janeczek who hails from Warsaw, Poland. Ashaneen’s new album and his first for the Real Music label is called Waves of Life, and will make a fine introduction of his style of music to listeners who have come to appreciate the quality music that this San Francisco Bay Area based label has released over the years.
