Highly hypnotic in every way, with each track having it's own absorbing and enchanting tale of discovery. I needn't say more, I'll let you be the judge. Thanks for the fantastically psychedelic grooves Pearce ; )
Favorite track: Etruscan Adventure.
This album is a subconscious, musical illustration of Antimony (Sb), substance considered between metal and mineral in the table of elements. The ambiguious duality of antimony is reflected in the contrasting sounds that feature in all Flooting Grooves' tracks. They are a combination of live instruments as well as samples from nature and electronically produced grooves, ultimately all contributing to create a cyber space sound wave.
The alchemists regarded antimony as symbolizing the animal side of human nature. This concept emerges as the sounds reach deep down to the core with an unpredictability and ever transforming freedom of expression. In other words a musical flow of primordial, cosmic energy of which you, as a sentient being, can make whatever you want of it.

I only officially purchased this today, after years of listening to this masterpiece Album, to be able to comment here and pass on my gratitude to Ott for giving us such a pleasant music album. Rarely do we get to express our gratitude to artists in these times directly, I know being one myself (RAME).
Mir is probably one of the best pieces of music, technically, production wise and artistically, that has touched my soul. The sheer beauty lies in authenticity of sounds which are absolute trip. Ronak R.
I'm so utterly fond of Entheogenic that I may not be objective when it comes to this duo. Let the music speak. Edit: not correct to say "duo", Entheogenic has long since become the project of Piers Oak-Rhind. God bless him. 9/10 sergpot
