Remember that 'SUP Magazine/Cosmic Kids post we ran a few weeks back? There's more to that story. More specifically an excellent desert-inspired mix by those star-gazing Cosmic Kids. Let your weekend fade into sweet, sweet oblivion courtesy of the Cosmic kids ambient mix. Take it away, Ron.
This mix was meant to accompany my friends and me on a mycologically-aided journey to Santa Catalina Island.
We were to stay on the windward side of the island, overlooking a cove surrounded by rolling brown hills dotted with oak trees.
The water had a tropical-blue clarity, very uncommon for those of us used to the murky greenish waters of California. Curtains of fog would roll through the cove into the valleys and dissipate, and the ground was littered with quarts crystals and veins of jade jutting from the dirt.
We also had an encounter with the local wildlife--a rascally island fox who occasionally visited our campsite to steal food.
The sounds of these tracks have an almost synesthetic effect on me, previously reminding me of ambient elements of the island; the fog, the clear water and the movement of distant ships.
Listening to it there almost felt redundant, filling an auditory void that was fulfilled by present stimuli. Now I can listen to this mix and be transposed back in time to that otherworldly cove above that little harbor.
