guest mix: dj snobo

January 16th, 2015

For this episode of Spaceman's Transmissions, I'm very fortunate to have given permission by a deservedly accomplished DJ goes by the name DJ SNOBO in presenting THIS WAS OUR LAST CHANCE (BEFORE WE SLEPT). Gosh hails from Riga, Latvia, and has a very extensive bit of involvement in the DJ scene, as well as in music overall. I asked Gosh quite a while back to host his mix. We had lost communication, but persistence allowed us to reconnect. While I try to do the most justice in doing write-ups for people, DJ Snobo says it best. Therefore, I pulled a bit of the bio off of his website.

"Hey, my name is Gosh, I'm also known as DJ Snobo and I'm a tumbler (born under punches)... Er, just kidding. Still, I've been juggling sounds, words, styles, genres, tempos, moods since 1990, using guitars, microphones, computers, digital & analog recordings and most importantly - imagination.


Which means that as from 1999 I have been DJing, making mixtapes, hosting radio shows, writing about music and otherwise popularize good vibrations of all kinds. A decade before (1989-99) I used to play guitar, sing and write songs in various bands, lead by myself or by my friends, and later on went solo to produce some electronic music. All of that happened in my home town of Riga, Latvia.


Being a passionate music lover all my life, I always had wide range of interests and never locked myself within artificial boundaries such as genres or musical forms. So - both as music maker or selector - I always played whatever interested me at that time, and it could have been almost everything. I usually say that my own projects from the 90s professed the concept of musical circus - quirky, fun-filled, eclectic extravaganza. As a DJ, I went deeper and less whimsical, but no less (and even more) cross-genre."


Gosh's abilities to weave sounds and create such seamless journeys is a mindblower to me. He's very adept at creating sufficient space with various elements to give good perception of depth, and gluing together sonic colors that yield an experience that is uniquely dark, intense, comforting, and enlightening. Yet another guy who I find to be incredibly inspiring, not only in introducing new music but presenting it in format that draws in the listener with absolute magnitude and beauty. I'm presenting an additional download of another mix entitled COLOURS OF WATER as a bonus for hungry minds that crave colorful journeys into the subconscious realm of imagination (this additional mix can be found at http://ambient-transmission.blogspot.com). Pay DJ Snobo a visit at his WEBSITE, his MIXCLOUD profile, his SOUNDCLOUD page (his primary page for hosting mixes), and the Facebook page THE CUP OF SILENCE that he runs. You can also find more links that represent DJ Snobo's musical forays HERE


Thank you so much, Gosh, for letting me be little part in sharing the beautiful creations that you've birthed. I look forward to more in the future.

within clouds of infinite space

January 10th, 2015

CloudspaceIII.png

Now that we've taken various detours throughout realms of thought and imagination, it's time to re-enter the space pod of higher realization and creativity to journey to new worlds for inspiration. To help adjust your human self to certain elements of the celestial current and adjust to zero gravity, Spaceman's Transmissions is offering an in-flight aural injection of freshly processed ingredients. It is mixed with careful consideration and care, and is both organic and high in mental nutrients. For those wishing for a vegan entree of goodness should rest assured, as there were no humans or animals harmed in the making of this delightful departure orientated morsel.


Within your mind there lies a world of untapped potential. The only way there is through your ears. The music will guide you through the darkness, and bring light and sound into focus. As grey matter aligns with the positive gravitational pull, a bright light of mental agility will be poured upon your consciousness. Let the sonic aura draw away undesired tension and bad vibes. Your pod serves as a cocoon that hatches a human that is more aware and more functional. Thank me later for that.


Remember to support the artists. Thanks for tuning in. Peace.

a human being is a human dreaming

December 9th, 2014

Hello, fellow space travelers. I'm back with a new ambient mix of some great things that I've been getting into my head lately. First off, I want to express the fact that I took the title for this mix from the song of the same title by Maiya Heresy from FUTURESEQUENCE8 (which is included in this mix. Great title, amazing composition.

When the music begins to drift into your mental space, allow it to form the cloudy blanket that will encompass your good thoughts and filter out the negative turmoil. This incubating layer will form the egg that will eventually hatch your renewal into peace. The aural comfort that you seek will be placed gently upon your physical vessel (known as the human being). Allow your mind to immerse itself into the dream world that awaits. The sanctuary there will breathe new life into your soul and spur a regeneration of creative thoughts, ideas, and tranquility. This is when you truly become the human dreaming. Upon completion of this sequence, this mission will be considered a success.

swung, shaken, and stirred

November 28th, 2014

If you've been following Spaceman's Transmissions for a bit and have kept your eyes on the guest mixes, you've noticed that I've hosted mixes by FACTION (Ben Selby) on a few occasions. The best part about hosting mixes is corresponding and building a rapport with people (my absolute favorite part of it all). Ben is a super-cool and ultra-knowledgeable music aficionado. He's easily one of my favorite Mixcloud artists that is capable of straddling the perfect balance between surreal and unreal. He's just as comfortable with spacey drones as he is with drum 'n bass. Huge imagination, ears like a bat, and a music collection that must be beyond staggering.


SwungShakenAndStirred.jpg
Well, Ben got with me not too long ago to return the favor of hosting his mixes, and I was invited to create a mix for BOXFREQUENCY.FM radio. The broadcast was overseen by FATPATCORD (aka Matthew Foord), who is also quite active in the scene as well and close associates with Faction (thanks, Matthew!). While it was introduced to be somewhat along the same lines of what I currently mix (with slight variations), I decided to create a mix that was very left field for me, even though the only main restriction that I had was that the mix had to be 90 minutes. I decided to give it a name, and as I initially set out to do a spy music set, the name Swung, Shaken, And Stirred seemed appropriate. So, yeah, there you have it. There is absolutely no ambient in this mix (you are forewarned!). Nonetheless, this was a blast to create, and I essentially used a lot of music that I've been into for the last 10 years (I have a ton of electronica/trip hop/nu-jazz). No worries, Spaceman's Transmissions will continue to be what it was prior to this. If anything, consider this a radical departure to clear the way for new amazing things in the future. Enjoy!

guest mix: junkyard angel (part V)

November 25th, 2014

It goes without saying that when Paul Simmonds creates a session, it's an aural journey that is ever so carefully and meticulously designed to enhance the senses. This is my 5th guest mix for JUNKYARD ANGEL and they just keep getting better and better. This one came as an early Christmas present, and I welcome that. I could easily go on and on about the incredible music that Paul stirs into the pot, or how he adds a touch of madness to glue the sonic ingredients, or what-have-you. Suffice it to say that you will find peace and mental renewal within this set.

I Can Hardly Breathe Right Now is a peaceful (as well as somber and reflective) trip that evolves in colorful ways from dark to light. There is no one better that JA to balance those variables with extremely careful precision. Like all of his mixes, I was drawn into its depth and reassembled as a slightly more aware human. I'm very grateful that I get to take in new music via his channelling of artistic introduction. I hope that the same sensations and sense of elation are gathered by you after taking in this colorful creation. Follow Junkyard Angel on MIXCLOUD and allow him to light your way to new and amazing mixes.
