Ektoplazm‘s downtempo imprint Omnitropic, in conjunction with Gliese 581C Records, is very proud to present A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy, the momentous full-length debut of Globular (Morison Bennett), a visionary producer from Bristol, U.K. Drawing inspiration from the mind-bending sonic alchemy of Ott and Shpongle, Globular has emerged as one of the rising stars of psychedelic dub, an inimitably British fusion of brawny bass lines, dazzling melodies, intricate rhythmic programming, emotionally-charged vocals, and immersive, otherworldly atmospheres. This is an album that captures the essence of the perfect summer day while offering a rare glimpse of the ineffable, inviting you to “hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.” Through its ambitious, sprawling passages, A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy articulates a profound view of the universe’s tendency toward complexity, the twist of fate that gave rise to life and consciousness, and our morally ambiguous role in the mysterious and impenetrable cosmic drama unfolding all around us. Mastered by Colin Bennun at the Stooodio, Bristol, U.K., with artwork by Basilisk featuring Creative Commons-licensed photos by Luc Viator and public domain imagery from NASA.

  • Jarrod says:

    Fantastic, I’m really enjoying it, thanks very much for your effort :)

  • Theobligron says:

    Good times and good tunes. Shpongle-esque in complexity, but with a strong reggae undercurrent. Of course, it being a dub album that is to be expected, but this one stands out. Five stars.

  • quazar says:

  • blub says:

    musician or magician? – u make me question the difference between those two words. great album.

  • Mafi says:

    Thanks for this, I was already afraid this site might be inactive forever now, which would be a real shame.
    Thanks again!

  • Rey Raton says:

    I don’t usually like downtempo stuff; Hinkstep’s Medusa was probably the only track that really caught my eye prior to this. There are several here I like! This is great stuff, and congratulations for putting it out.

  • highks says:

    Very good! It’s really good dub, but it doesn’t sound at all like all the other dub releases. Very refreshing! Thank you!

  • towa says:

    high qualitty music, recpect for great music

  • ForestChild says:

    Its good, but some of the intros are way too long before the real music starts, and it seems a bit repetitive, not much progression to this one. I give it a 7 out of 10.

  • Vendeplhi says:

    I listened to this album, approaching it with high hopes. But after hearing tracks like Aldrig Mer, and Medusa from Hinkstep’s latest album, I feel that those 2 tracks have set the new standard of high quality downtempo. Thus, Globular – A self fulfilling prophecy seems to have fallen very short of what i was expecting. Its good don’t get me wrong, but its just not THAT good. The songs seem to just linger on and on and on… nothing incredibly happens. Nothing I hear makes me want to label this as fucking awesome, just mediocre. I am thoroughly disappointed.

  • Homitek says:

    Great album, very Shonglesque.
    The first two minutes of The Loon are simply awesome. Actually too awesome, cuz I usually spend the rest of the track wishing that the sitar theme would pop back in :-)

  • Vendeplhi says:

    ive heard better. you people are losing it. maybe thats why the album sucks. because the listeners that give feedback dont seem to be helping.

  • Akhentek says:

    Finally had the chance to sit down and listen with proper attention. This album is great!

    Much gratitude for all of the hard work of everyone involved in this release. :)

  • thank you! come to transylvania!!!

  • JahWizz says:

    Amazing… Cant stop listening to it! Cheers, cant wait the next one!

  • Ben Q Hardy says:

    The best release I’ve ever seen on Ektoplazm. Globular’s a musical genius, definitely at the level of Ott/Shpongle/Younger Brother. Excited to see more of his work in the future!


  • Tara Putra says:

    Without doubt in my Top3 of psychedelic dub. HELP! Can’t stop listening! d(+_°)b

  • Showsey manza says:

    Dude this is next level fucking awesome psychedelic phat! MASSIVE respect :) WOW !!!

  • Slava says:

    It’s just perfect, very nice sounds and melodies, fell in love with this album immediately!

  • eScape says:

    I love this album. This is the best stuff i’ve ever heard on ektoplazm. Very deep and psychedelic tracks with much stuff going on in the background and very tasty rainbow-like melodies tingling in front of me. Didn’t listen enough to it yet, but i think it could well be on par with Ott, Younger Brother or Shpongle in terms of complexity.

  • freddyy says:

    one of my favorite albums !! really good atmospheres brings emotions & chills to my brain and heart.. thank you very much i love this

  • xs4u says:

  • JonnyB says:

    Wowza. Brilliant stuff. First class Psy Dub. Thanks to artist and Omnitropic at al for making it available for free

  • Schnappi says:

    I haven’t got an account or replied here before, but to this album I Just had to comment. Having lost faith in psychedelic downtempo (meaning psybient / psychill) a few years ago, this album took me by surprise. It reminds me of older Ott, Shpongle and Younger Brother, without copying their style too closely. It’s wonderful, touching, emotional psychedelic psydub that’s not tacky. That really is quite an achievement after ten years of artists imitating each other without much regard for originality… This deserves a proper release! Many kudos to Ektoplazm for hosting this and to Globular for giving away this brilliant music for free.

    This comes from someone who’s listened to a lot of psybient and has since moved on… this album brought me right back. Outstanding stuff! :)

  • Cyan says:

    ^ Very well said.

    “A Singular Synergy” is one of the most original, beautiful, and warped songs I’ve ever heard. Thank you for making this music, and sharing it ! Much love and respect to you!

  • Globular is the shit. This album is awesome. The haters are gonna hate, but they’re gonna be wrong.

  • Cyan says:

    Globular, I’m very curious… How did you create the DMT elf vocals on “A Singular Synergy” They’re processed in such a cool way. Can you share an info about their origin? Much Respect

  • prodigymania says:

    fascinating … I was impressed. I congratulate… .)

  • Tusk Bilasimo says:

    Thanks…. awesome, penetrates them levitates the soul :)

  • Ake Cooland says:

    All these three albums sounds spectacular! Magical music I really really liked.
    Thank you very much for this!

  • Elle Sugar says:

    I have been listening to this all summer, and totally in love with it. I have shared it with numerous friends. They all have the same reaction: “who IS this artist?? This is AMAZING!”

    Thank you Globular for producing the wonderfully chilled, subtly complex soundtrack to my life for the last 5 months.
    Every time I listen to this, I feel as though I am at the perfect summer festival barefoot in the grass and looking out across a beach filled with hula hooping hippies.
    I can’t write more, because I’m too compelled to dance ;)

  • Flarkus says:

    Hoo-ha-ga-wa-ka-chaka! Such incredibly beautifully melodically twisted music that make the thoughts take flight. Some top-notch toe-tingling tunes, thank you so much, Mr Bennett

  • raanst says:

    It’s my very first album from Ektoplazm and this album is so great! Very original and deep, maybe it’s not a pure psy, but it’s a great electronic music sometimes smells like Jarre’s “Oxygene”. 4/5
