Overview of five top psybient artists :
'Aeolian Mode' is the first album .
For this album, Alwoods draws inspiration from his love of nature, the elements, and his time spent in the Greek mountainside. Natural sounds, bright atmospheres, and pulsing energies create a wondrous audio experience that fuses morning sounds with deep ambience.
Every song is a unique piece of art in itself and the quality and craftsmanship reflect the time taken to produce the entire album.
Originally scheduled over a year ago and released just now, this album shines with the extra time and effort invested to perfect it. Each sound hits your ears with thick bass lines that vibrate and resonate your ear drums and your entire being.
A favorite off of the album that moved the down-tempo and chill-out dance floors this past summer is 'We Are Modern Shamans'. The combination of melodies with the shaman's vocals deep energetic bass makes the track irresistible, and makes it an infectious track to dance to.
Every song is diverse, but they all keep the familiar 'Alwoods' progressive-chill signature sound. Both his first album 'Aeolian Mode' and 'Long Life Forest' are tied for one of the best Altar Records albums so far.

Charles Farewell aka Asura opens two outstanding chapters...
...in his musical odyssey with '360', a powerful cinematic Downtempo album which captures and enhances the essence of the original Asura sound with its slow grooving rhythms, entrancing melodies, deep flowing pads and ethnic instrumentations.
This fourth album from Asura will stand as the coming out of Charles Farewell as an incredible composer of overlapping ambient genres, from ecstatic to chilled,
groovy to uplifting, he offers the audience a wide open musical journey with finely chiseled orchestrations and a strong sense of space and timelessness.
Mostly instrumental, the album offers a sublime vocal introduction courtesy of Ayten and discreet voice overs from the artist.
'360' is a lively and attractive record which presents three years of sound modeling, synth programming and deep immersion in multi-layered soundscapes. Peaceful and majestic.
