I fell into you when I first saw you,
skyclad,
naked to the wind,
your azure blue sky haunting me from that day forth in my deepest dreams.

I could feel your presence in everything,
in every shadow,
every trees shade,
in never blade of grass.

I thought of how things were before this,
feeling so frightened and alone,
my heart nearly turned to stone before my breath heard the whisper of your name.

I closed my eyes when that happened,
when your pursed lips innocently said my name;
these eyes,
these guarded eyes,
they shuttered close but were more open than they had ever been,
and alas,
I could see more in minds eye than I had ever seen in dream or star or vision or sky,
and I smiled a smile from sea to sea,
knowing that my name was now your refrain.

So I stand before you,
my soul skyclad,
shuddering naked in your winds,
catching the incense of your name,
and in your presence,
I am HEALED,
and my healing,
it feels so deep,
all the way from Tartarus to The Seven Seraphic realms,
I am healed so deep because you brought out the best in me,
and your honesty cut at the cords of my soul like a psychic surgeon,
releasing all my old wounds so that I could heal MYSELF,
and in your presence,
my soul shall remain willingly skyclad,
thanking you for the first day that we crossed paths,
and you first whispered my name...

New Album: Memory Palace - Coming Soon!

Posted by eyes cast down on October 21, 2014 at 10:06pm 1 Comment


Chris Russell and I have wrapped our duo album Memory Palace, and expect to announce its release date shortly.

Recorded over a nearly four-year period, Memory Palace features Chris' deep atmospherics and drones glinting over a seething bed of hybrid organic-electronic grooves.

Memory Palace will be a joint release on Chris' Void Music and my Kalindi Music, available on CD and by download.

Look for the preview clip, track list, more artwork and the rest of the story - all coming soon!

[CFM058] The Downgrade Complex - Scrapyard Diptych

Posted by James Shain on October 21, 2014 at 2:16pm 0 Comments

Our 58th release in the series comes from The Downgrade Complex who started off our 2014 edition of Futur[e]cho. He brings a wall of noise filled melodies and thumping kicks to the album before giving way to several remixers who give their own takes on several of his tracks. There is melody in this, but this is very much on the noise side of things till it gets to the remixes which give their own take with Ambient Techno, glitchy Ambient and Industrial Techno. Very much not what you'd expect from the label, but it somehow fits well into catalog of releases. Out on November 7th. We thank all those who check out the release and take time to listen, and I hope everyone likes my DeepWarmth take on the title track.

New album out soon entitled Balance

Posted by James Shain on October 20, 2014 at 2:30pm 2 Comments

I finally have something to share after 4 years of hard work on my followup to the first album I ever started work on, A Chance of Weather. This is the first IDM and Ambient release by DeepWarmth. Taking about 4 years to complete, and is inspired by Rei Harakami who sadly passed away during the making of this album. This becomes an album in memory of such a great Japanese Electronic Music artist as much as an album that reflects the various stages of life during the making of the album. There is a very special remix not included on the preview from Coppice Halifax that will serve as the 11th and final track. Being released on Omchaki November 14th, 2014.

Tracklist:

1. Crafting a Stream

2. Square World

3. Night Warmth

4. Tokyo Lights

5. Slow Movement

6. Valley Echo

7. Shades of Evening Coldness

8. Balance

9. There Was Something Once

10. Ending (Theme For Lost Memories)

11. Crafting a Stream [Coppice Halifax Reshape]

Digital sales for the major music industry is plummeting.

Posted by John K-N on October 20, 2014 at 11:49am 11 Comments

Digital sales for the major music industry is plummeting. Reference: Billboard article. There are about 50 more articles out there as this blew up this month. If digital sales go too much lower - it'll hit the same decline rate as CD sales.

Streaming and music not being a "collectible" thing - and frankly - not even as important of a thing to younger people these days with entertainment options being so vast. Granted there are still collectors out there - but fewer and further between.

It does affect the teeny tiny artists like myself... it means there are less people into music so much that they eventually start looking for non-major releases and finding artists in the lower range ... below the Indie Labels. Less people in the ocean of listeners for all of us artists trying to connect with.

Note - the article also mentions: "Within album sales, there was one bright spot: vinyl is up a whopping 47.5 percent to 6.074 million units from 4.12 million units last year."

Lost Songs from the Endless River

Posted by Roy Mattson on October 20, 2014 at 11:28am 0 Comments

This album consists of songs that did not make the final cut of my full-length album entitled "Endless River". I wanted to let these songs out to the world and decided to combine them into a continuous piece that flows forth from the same place as "Endless River". The end product is a 32 minute journey available as "name your own price". It can be downloaded for free, or pay what you like. Thank you for listening and thanks for your support.
