Return to the Source (20 Years of BMSS) - Compiled by Boom Shankar
Play Entire CD

Celebrating 20 years of the BMSS family and ten years of BMSS the record label, ìReturn to the Sourceî brings together sonic synthesis from all corners of the multiverse. Curated to encapsulate the Psychedelic and Goa Trance spectrum in its entirety, this double CD bumper crop represents the diversity of music BMSS has come to stand for. In the process of compiling ìReturn to the Sourceî a vast amount of compelling music was unearthed.

Alongside primal Psytrance pioneers such as Braincell and Hux Flux and the artists who defined the sound of Goa Trance like Pleiadians, Technossomy, Total Eclipse and ManMadeMan, are contemporary wizards of sound whose otherworldly magic strives to reinvent and reconnect. The artists featured are those that have found and forged their unique identities and spirit into music. An eclectic selection gathered by label manager and globe trotting DJ Boom Shankar, to challenge standards that breed conformity and reflecting his own personal style that prioritizes story and flow over genre and BPM.  The result is a story featuring 40 artists, 20 tracks, spread over 2 CDs with an additional 11 tracks available for free download.

Chapter 1 revolves around the intense magnetic power of the moon while Chapter 2 radiates with the emotive bright harmony of day time energy. Representing the BMSS sound and spirit with fresh music that tests the limits are The Key, Datacult, Ascent, Argon Sphere, Sabretooth & PsiloCybian among others. From our extended family of like minded artists, Majide (the new project of Spectra Sonics and DJ Yuya), Lucid Mantra, Vertical, Imaginary Sight and Atoned Splendor bring their signature sense of musicality to the mix. Aashit Singhís visionary cover art is a contemporary take on psychedelic design while warm dynamic mastering of Micky Noise (Plus Six) gives each track a fine smooth polish.

The scale and breadth of this project reflects the spirit of our time where borders and boundaries and burdensome labels become less and less relevant. Through diversity BMSS keeps the bridge to the past alive. With this compilation we choose the unusual. We seek out the strange and unfamiliar. We break the rules and part with convention in favor of experimentalism and a desire to provide new points of inspiration. A selection to remind us that there are no rules & no limits. A return to the Source.
