Dance of the Einherjar: Texas Psytrance festival

Atrium Obscurum Dance of the Einherjar

This weekend people will gather right outside of Hughes Springs, Texas for Atrium Obscurum’s annual 3 days, 2-night music and art festival at Armadillo Acres. This is the same venue used for Myschievia. The theme for this event is to honor the dead. Many of us have experienced death in 2016 in very personal ways so this is our way of celebrating them with this Norse mythology story.

Einherjar (Old Norse einherjar = ‘those who fight alone’ or ‘those who belong to an army’) is the term used in Northern mythology for the warriors slain in battle, who are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries after their deaths. There they spend their days in battle, but in the evenings they are all alive again and drink the mead which flows from the udder of the goat Heiðrún and is offered to them by the Valkyries. They eat the meat from the constantly renewed boar Sæhrímnir. There is sufficient for everyone. – Nordic Names

Headlining is
OCELOT – Prog-A-Lot (USA/Portugal) Avatar – Vertigo – Dropout – Moon – Koradji
*Ocelot will also be performing a downtempo set in the 2nd Dome area*

#MusicMonday Ron Herhuth Liquid Lifeforms – Herhuth (Original)

Missing psytrance right now. I have no been connected to the internet for only 24 hours yet it feel like so much longer since I used to be connected all the time. Wonderful vacation to get to decompress from my typical life. I do need to keep up with things back at home so I am spending time at an internet cafe and found this.

Hope you enjoy your #MusicMonday

New to psytrance? It changed my life and I’ve been part of Atrium Obscrum since 2007. I found this awesome video which I’ve used to explain psytrance’s culutre.

I am heading back to the beach… You can check out these awesome psytrance albums to get you started:

I pulled all these as I go on a road trip this weekend so these are all the best. I perhaps saved the best for last but only because I am nostalgic about my bass music.

Lick it: The Read, podcast

The Read podcast

The Read podcast

One of my favorite podcasts. I have looked forward to every single Thursday for over a year JUST for this podcast. It doesn’t matter what kind of day of I’m having Kid Fury and Crissle always crack me and straight up read folks up and down. I don’t have any other podcast I’m listening to that has the best introduction every single week of a new different song. I’m a fan of Zebra Katz and the DAY I heard “Iam Read” 3 years ago I would randomly have this song pop in my head when I was about to read a betch. Seriously, sometimes folks just need to get some knowledge. Any how, so when the remix played in the first podcast I was like, “Oh?!” Then completely devoured every single episode since.

All major Beyonce fan will love how they both go into deep details of how utterly blessed by all she does as well as talk about Blue Ivy. Then get passionately upset when the hosts discuss hot cultural topics as well as break down race issues. Favorite section? The readers’ letters at the end are hysterical. Sometimes I feel like the listers are just brand new trying to work around things but

Follow Kid Fury & Crissle on Twitter. To get new episodes as they come out, follow on their soundcloud page or via iTunes.

Hope you enjoy their playlist. It’s straight up fire. Even if you NEVER get around to listening to the podcast itself – do yourself a favorite and play the intros picks for the past year.

Christian Prommers 60min Mix @ Wilde, Sonar Patrty

I would pay for a version of this a cleaning session. I do cleaning when deciding which mixes to post so I had this one turned to the LOUDEST (without pissing my neighbors off) volume. This mix is movement motivating and really, I could listen to this at a party. Christian Prommer is a really good reason to visit Europe. Check out his tour schedule: at his site.

Really great treat! This is a best of mix! Free download when you subscribe to the e-mail list, download link will arrive in your inbox. This starts of chill then works its way into a hot sweaty dance beat getting deep and sexy. Just a fun ride! Worth it.

Download Now: Parallels (Part 1: Storm) & (Part 2: Eye) preview

Psymbionic

Yay! I’m getting excited about Art Outside  I had heard Parallels earlier this year but never had the chance to sit down and listen to Part 2 which will release in July 1st!

Here you go! I like to call this glitch drip as there is a very delicate glitch sound that has delicate ethereal notes. All the elements of Silkscreen are powerful like a spider’s web constantly weaving.
