After another long wait, we are glad to finally be able to announce our next big strike. Originally planned as a little digital concept ep – we have been completely sucked in and inspired so much, that – what came out is almost a fully fledged compilation series dedicated to the four primal elements.
Starting out with a sonic homage to arguably our planet’s most important one: water.
COSM009 – V.A. – The Elements: Water EP
We have gathered our artist core 6TH FLOOR, ELECTRIC SHEEP, PARAPHONE and HERMETICA to weave their magical sonic tapestry – worshipping the basic element of life – H2O.
Opened by 6TH FLOOR’s orchestral descent to the enchanting Sirens Of The Abyss – an atmospheric masterpiece of immense proportions, pulling the listener deeper and deeper into a hypnotic chasm of effervescent psychedelic bliss. ELECTRIC SHEEP further abduct you with their trademark atmospheric groovyness in the timeless floater fantasy Water Of Life – and make you delve into a trippy aquaworld of waves and frequencies. Followed by PARAPHONE’s Octopus – a dizzying polylimbic cephalopod of a tune – sucking you even deeper and deeper – the EP is rounded off with Orichalcum another bubbling dub-tripper from HERMETICA – cosm’s alchemical sonic chillwizard himself.
Watch out for the upcoming Element EPs devoted to “Air”, “Fire” and “Earth” – to be released in the close future of the next months.
