Cosmic Trigger - The Hallucinatory Mountain
"The Hallucinatory Mountain" is the long awaited debut album from young 25 year old UK producer Jamie Grashion, now a permanent member of Shpongle. An alumni of Youth's Meridian Studios, Jamie has honed his skills working with the likes of The Orb, Gaudi, Kuba, The Irresistible Force and a host of LSD artists, remixing the latest Dub Trees album with Youth earlier in the year and always staying true to the Liquid Sound Design aesthetic.
This album is a golden apple from Eris herself, a polymorphous journey soaring through the psychonautical altitudes of the here and never ever, peeling through the shifting layers of aural hallucinations to find some sort of sanity and spirit at the core. With moments of zen-like lysergic reflection mixed with bamboozling SNAFUs of pure spiritual vertigo, "The Hallucinatory Mountain" is the amalgamation of years of dedication and optimism, a promising seed with more fruit to bear.
