Liquid Mind is a collaboration of twisted style psychedelic trance composers from California and beyond. Compiled by C.L. Martin (Bodhisattva 13:20) in order to help induce the flow of psychic energy to the mind, this comp is dedicated to the infinite possibilities within the subconscious. The music contained within will help to crack the code of the psyche, and move you to the next level, so that we may continue to regain balance with the natural world.
Ranging from 148-158 bpm, this music is perfect for the outdoor nighttime psychedelic trance experience. The disk begins with Glyph’s smooth and trippy beats, followed by Electrypnose’s tweaky, glitched out style. Limbertimbre comes next with the same style, but harder. Clilium turns up the crazy knob, and Dai continues the same pattern, with less glitch. Mubali then shifts gears toward a deeper sound, retaining intensity. The Monks get a bit wackier, with comic samples, while remaining deep and trancy Arabali then slams us with insanity, followed by Mubodhi who goes deeper and more serious. Bodhi then ends the compilation with an unsane 158 bpm oddity.
