      Matt Sewell’s A Crushing Glow Presents Anuradha & Kavita Paudwal

      The Gayatari Mantra - 2023 Repress

        Originally released in 2016 & featuring lovely original artwork by world renown artist & illustrator Matt Sewell, the Mantra 12" quickly became a musical touchstone for that year. It was the soundtrack to countless events, radio shows & intimate soirées. It also became slightly infamous for causing mischief at one eminent London venue with DJs relishing it's sumptuous extended running time (over 50 minutes) a little too much !

        The Gayatari Mantra performed by Bollywood playback singer Anuradha Paudwal & her daughter Kavita Paudwal weaves a magical spell . A holy mantra, it is inescapable throughout India. Played publically in taxis, shops and used as a ringtone on ‘phones & in doorbells.

        A Crushing Glow Volume 2 - Compiled By Matt Sewell

        Celebrated UK illustrator & discerning musical globetrotter Matt Sewell has curated & beautifully illustrated this second musical volume. 14 Tracks which take us on an alchemic & singular cosmic journey through sound & vision!

        Obscure pastoral 60s psyche opens proceedings via Philamore Lincoln and Alameda, the perfect tracks for lying in meadows looking up at blue skies whilst tripping on LSD. Juggy D quickly injects some Punjabi rainbows into the mix; accentuating our trip and taking our minds across the globe before esteemed ambient guitarist Mark McGuire deploys a perfectly timed bliss-out for the first part of our journey.

        Side B sees the first forays into electronic rhythms, Manchester hero Ruf Dug getting all 4:20 with the stoned grooves of "Elephant Skank". Four Trees continue the electronic revelry with an out-there piece of kraut sequences supplemented by live drums. Then it's the turn of downbeat legends Prefuse 73 to stimulate us with highly advanced synthesis, glitches and mellifluous songwriting. The sequencing and curation by Matt already perfectly highlighted across this first disc.

        More spiritual Indian vibes return on disc 2: the Ganesh-inspired, Sitar-accompanied hymn "Devinamam" by Amme Bhaghavathi-Devalakshmi alligning our chakras in time and taking us ever closer to Samadhi. Again, the symbiosis of human and machine is celebrated, with Farbror Resande Mac becoming one with his synthesizers on "Monoverse" before Allesandro Allesandroni provides a brief but captivating interlude of plucked devine sensuality via their track "Aliante Giallo". Broadcast's "Echo's Answer" is a deeply personal lullaby that whisper into our ears the closure of side C.

        David Darling channels African township vocals on "Pis Lai" - mixing the melancholic with the uplifting in ways that only tribes from the Great Continent seem to muster. Bruice Langhorne sends out signals from the lighthouse, slowly pulling us out of our psychedelic revelry as penultimate track "Ending" signifies; before Phil France gently caresses our ears into a post-peak-experience slumber; the trip complete; we're both mentally rejuvenated yet physically tired. A good sleep on the cards with New Beginnings that follow.

        A truly healing and transportive compilation, incredibly well sequenced and the ultimate companion for astral travelling. You won't want to get up and flip the records over! Highly recommended.

        Matt Sewell’s A Crushing Glow Presents DrumTalk

        Out Of The Blackness Into The Blue

        Continuing their endless string of essential releases, Caroline True bring us the latest collaborative project from the mighty Matt Sewell, this time with london producer DrumTalk. Taking to the Secret Sundaze studio, DrumTalk drifts away from the club-focus of his releases on Tru-Thoughts, Soundway and Huntley & Palmers, syncing into the sublime vibrations of A Crushing Glow for two meditative synth suites. On the A-side, "Out Of The Blackness, Into The Blue" delivers drum box bossa, dreamlike sequences and celestial bliss-tones, making a connection with a wider cosmic consciousness. If you dig on the library styles of Clara Mondshine, the spacier, synthier end of the kosmische spectrum or the slow and spangled moments of Patrick Cowley's porn oeuvre, you're gonna love this. The flip continues the cosmic voyage, enjoying a little extra thrust from a blorpy bass synth as we lose ourselves in the nebulous goo of e-flute, fluttering sine waves and warming white noise. I imagine this is what Arthur C Clarke's Starchild listened to when he was getting stoned...


        Patrick says: Well this is a delight! Aside from the sublime space-prog sleeve art, and eye catching coloured disc, this release holds a pair of stunning intergalactic synthscapes, perfect for fans of European library music, Berlin school electronics or Patrick Cowley's post-orgasmic bliss outs.
