The mix Peter has crafted for us pulls from all elements of a galactic spectrum, with tastes of balearic classics and afro-realness. It's a real, coherent, journey through space and time. An exemplar for what we're all about at Cosmic Incantations, and we're very proud to present it to you.
Here's a little of what the creator had to say...
'When JP asked me to do this mix, I was immediately inspired by the name of the blog. One of my all-time favorite Jean-Luc Ponty records is called “Cosmic Messenger”, and one of my all time favorite Jean-Luc Ponty tracks is “Computer Incantations for World Peace”. I was planning to start my set with a track or two from Ponty, but decided to opt for something a bit more driving.
I pride myself on playing firmly rooted music. That being said, lately I’ve been drawn deeper into the more cosmic side of my record collection. So for this mix I focused on marrying more conventional earth-level sounds with mind-expanding and forward-trodding space music. And I am incredibly pleased with the results.
This was mixed with just two turntables and a rotary mixer. It features a dubplate from myself, so enjoy it now before anyone else!'
