Earth Mantra releasing again soon!!!

Earth Mantra will start releasing again in 2013! 


Darrell Burgan founded Earth Mantra and has created an amazing label with nearly 200 releases over the years. He's reached a point where wants to step back from the label and instead of letting it go silent... he's allowing us to continue on. Geoff Small (aka åpne sinn) will be running the label with the help of Steve Brand and me - and I'm sure a little help from Joel (Crystal Dreams) who helps us now with the Relaxed Machinery website.  The same team behind Relaxed Machinery is now running Earth Mantra.

We do not plan to change Earth Mantra.  

It's an awesome netlabel releasing Creative Commons music and we fully support that.  Darrell leaves some very large shoes to follow - and we hope to honor his legacy with future releases on Earth Mantra.


This excites me so much - and it ties in with our community 3rd anniversary... as Darrell was the first person to decide this community was the right fit to be the official community for StillStream (which he owned at the time) and his Earth Mantra label.

John, Geoff, and Steve.

Special thanks to Geoff, John, Steve, Joel, and anyone else who pitches in to keep Earth Mantra going. I'm very glad it is going into such good hands, and I'm certain it will be much better than ever.

I have been a huge fan of Earth Mantra for a long time and am glad it is being continued by the great folks here. Darrell, I have really enjoyed the particular way you have written up the reviews for each and every release as they came out. It has always been a great way to be introduced to artists I didn't know. Thanks for you fantastic work, and thanks to rM for the future work with Earth Mantra!

Glad I saw this post! EM is a site/label close to my heart. It was what really ignited my interest in Ambient music again :) Glad to see it will continue!

Yes, thank you so much for continuing the saga of Earth Mantra.  I play a lot of artist from here on Coronal Winds Radio.  I'll be keeping my eyes open for new artists.  My very best wishes and thanks.

This is wonderful news! I'm sure Earth Mantra will (if not already) grow into a ridiculously huge museum of beautiful, free ambient music. Good luck on that! I'll be anxiously awaiting new releases.

I'm very happy to hear that the label will continue, and that it has been entrusted to such trustworthy hands.

Wow - this rocks! EarthMantra has to high up on anyone's netlabel list - they're tops on mine - great to see it in good hands going forward.
