I'm proud to be bringing the music of MANTRAMAN to the masses for this outing on Spaceman's Transmissions. I've been digging on Mantraman's mixes for a bit now, and I finally get a chance to show the love. I've been blessed with having the opportunity to host 3 mixes (the 2 additional mixes are available at SPACEMAN'S TRANSMISSIONS: http://ambient-transmission.blogspot.com).
I got contacted recently by FACTION (Ben Selby) about a new mix that he's created. Out of all of the artists that I follow, Ben is probably one of the guys that blow my mind in the biggest way. his sonic tapestries are a huge journey in the subconscious, stopping at the various synapses which bring light and sound into focus. Given the vast amount of influences and music, Faction flawlessly (and consistently) pieces together the most seamless mixes ever. I can never seem to find edits in his mixes. His canvases are a perfect blend of light and dark colors that are pleasing, challenging, and ever shapeshifting. Not only are they musically gratifying, but the work ethic that he displays is unrivaled and unparalleled.
