  • Plasmo says:

    finally …..is like 6 months I’m waiting for this :)

  • Alien Prime says:

    AT LAST!!! I’ve been waiting so long…
    This time it’s downtempo with the same magical touch inside as the «Creatures of the Forest». Usually I do not like downtempo, but NOT this time! It’s fantastic.
    Thank you, Ray!

    (by the way, this release sounds like one of my friend’s music — a strange mix of psy-ambient with moonlighted moody house and enigmatic space sounds)

  • Ekoplex says:

    Thank you all :) Thanks to Xander (Ektoplazm label owner) for all his help and support.
    @Alien prime. whats the artist name of your friend?

    Нереально! Запоминающийся релиз!

  • Trytpicon says:

    This is truly a Masterpiece that will have a number of replays for me, especially playing at 4a-6a Morning sets. I think this might be the theme I build our annual Spring Burn at around in a couple months. So gorgeous and enveloping, CAN NOT wait to feel the harmonic resonates of the frequencies rolling across the hay fields w/ 15,000 watts of love and firelight licking the shadows playfully! =) Thank you for this gift, truly Ekoplex.

  • inforest says:

    Great album!! Listening third time in a row now. Just one question to Ray, is it going to be some unmixed version?

  • Cyll says:

    Awesome! One of the best downtempo music i’ve ever heard. And thanks for writing some of your thoughts in the liner notes, they’re really interesting.
    I have to hear it again now..

  • Kilura says:

  • Andre says:

    Awesome album :D

    Normally I find downtempo too boring to keep my mind interested… but this is totally different.
    Well, I knew from previous Ekoplex releases it would be good, but this exceeded my expectations.

    Warm, beautiful sounds with awesome sounding bass.
    I think the ‘deep’ tag is very appropriate ;)

    Thanks a lot for this!

    Im going to have a little CD release party here in Toronto, sorry for those too far away :) It going to be on the 25th of February.

  • ibi says:

    Visionary. Ekoplex has reached a new plateau! This one I had to download on WAV; it was that good. The MP3 version just didn’t do it justice in my opinion. It’s hands down my favorite album of 2012. I think I felt my brain ripple during the Shapeshifter tack! Outstanding! Ray’s music has evolved by leaps and bounds. This one is downright amazing. Ray, you just set the bar a little higher once again. Thank you!

  • besnik says:

    hey ray,

    nice one!

    besnik and danny

  • nomad moon says:
