Title: Some Candy Before Christmas
Catalog #: CANDY002
Label: Candy Mind Records
Release Date: 2004/12/20
The dark winter and the bright Christmas have come to the land of Candy Mind. We are celebrating with this release, trying to capture the feelings and movements of this introspective part of the year.
With “Some Candy Before Christmas”, we are showcasing all different kinds of frosty winter music; from Liquid Strangers December meditation “Ginger bread Juice” to Goto80s Santa’s-toy-factory-journey “Alaska”.
Dance to glittering, glitchy beats with Dorothy’s Magic Bag or chill out with Hectopascal during their Christmas promenade; with some candy, this winter will be something to remember.
1. HECTOPASCAL – TIME
To let you slip into the proper christmas mood, Hectopascal delivers a glimse of true winter bliss with
their track Time.
A solemn hymn with lush harmonies and subtle ambiences. A perfect warmup for every kind of x-mas
2. GOTO80 – RELAX ENJOY HELP
It is time for Goto80 to tell us all what Christmas is all about: relaxation, joy and generousity.
This cosy tune comes with an addictive hook and an overall joyful vibe that will make you smile.
3. LIQUID STRANGER – GINGER BREAD JUICE
Even (or especially?) during Christmas time we are in need of some rest and peace. This track is a deep and exploring meditation about the truth of gingerbread and candy syrup.
Hold your hat and follow the mind streams of Guru Liquid Stranger while he is showing us how (and how not) to make some refreshing ginger bread juice.
4. DOROTHY’S MAGIC BAG – FROST
After his stunning releases on Kahvi collective, Dorothy’s Magic Bag joins the Candy Mind crew and delivers a full-fledged christmas stormer. This frosty track is loaded with sharp, crisp beats, epic harmonies and the north wind can also be heard in a distance.
5. GOTO80 – ALASKA
Near the North Pole, on the coldest cape of the Alaska Peninsula, Goto80 is rushing forward on his sledge, toiling and moiling to get all the Christmas presents delivered on time.
Tonight our own 8-bit santa deputy is bustling about the planet, spreading chaos and laughter in all directions.
6. DIN STALKER – RATE YOUR MATE
Din Stalker is showing us a totally different aspect of December; a story about getting lost in snowstorms and then being forced to fight giant evil snowmen.
Join this chilly electronica adventure and find out what really happened to the snowmen, Din Stalker and the last days of December.
7. PALUESTIL – TALADMAI ROAD
Snow is falling down even on the tropical Taladmai road, making its ground and vegetation all white. No one less than Paluestil is there, playing in the snow and sending us a Christmas greeting card to tell us about the tropical snow.
Unfortunately the card was posted to late and will not get there in time. Sorry…
