CD1 dance


The dance cd is a beat-mixed album of 12 great tracks from the early 90's through to 2012 being mostly trance. The album is designed to move from mid-beat to uptempo. It begins with 'Open Our Eyes' by Marshall Jefferson, the world-famous Chicago deep house track with it's positive conscious lyrics and deep vibe. Next is 'Positive Education' by Slam, the iconic UK techno cut from Soma records Glasgow and renowned in techno. This version is their own recent 2011 Slam re-mix. Then is 'The Milky Way' by Jaia, a beautiful melodic electro house track with an operatic vocal from the French ambient-trance producers. Next is 'Flooressence' (dayglo mix) by Man with No Name, a legendary producer in trance music from the UK. This was a hit in the 90's (particularly in Europe) and was in the UK charts. It is synonomous with Uk parties in the 90's and contains one of the greatest hooks in dance music. 'Axis Flip' again by Man With No Name comes next, a deep and rhythmic tune. Next is 'Cafe del Mar' (kid paul mix) by Energy 52 ( 'everyone's favourite trance track' according to DJ Mag) the most well-known trance track in the world. This is the Kid Paul mix, one of the original writer's production and arguably the best. 'Elevator' by Shinny follows, an uplifting melodic track with a memorable violin break. This was one of the favourites on mega-t's 'cathedral' dancefloor. Next is 'East 98th Street' again by Man With No Name, from the 'Across the Tracks' album. A chugging monster, pulsing, mesmerising. Next is 'Alienated' by Earth Nation. Trance music originated in Germany and Earth Nation were among the very first pioneering producers. This is Earth Nation's own new 2009 remix of their classic tune. Then is 'Morning Star' - the Reactor remix, by S-Range, a newer producer, from Switzerland. Great melody and sound. Then is 'Trinodia' by Alderamin. A new track a very deep original sounding track from new Chilean producers with a deep bass, from 2012. Finishing the album is 'Mir' by Astrix. Astrix is a newer producer from the Israeli scen , very well-known in trance music now. This is one of his best ever (and also one of his own personal favourites). Very full-on.
 
This dance album is a continuous mix, beat-mixed by Dj TK, well-known London remixer/ beat-mixer and dj of over 30 years experience.

John Perry Barlow's (Grateful Dead lyricist and internet pioneer) lyrics feature on 'A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace' by VTea and Entropica ( an electronic / spoken word peon to the internet that appears on thousands of websites).

CD3   shamanarchy

The 'shamanarchy' album contains 10 electronic house / techno and acid tracks up and downtempo, some with vocals and a beautiful meditation. The album name shamanarchy comes from the events at the original mega-t. Most of the tracks on the album reflect the 8 Solar festivals of the Wheel of the Year. These are guided by John Crow. The album begins with an experimental acid track featuring the words of Sir George Trevelyan (the father of the new age movement) by Unimind. The following 8 tracks are the solar festival tracks called ' Winter Solstice, Imbolc, Spring Equinox etc. These electronic tracks reflects each of the solar festivals. Some of the tracks feature vocals by Maria Silmon and John Crow. They reflect the changing season's mirroring those times of year and their rituals.  The album concludes with a full moon guided meditation written and performed by Suzy Straw (founder of Encircling the Land with Sacred Dance) a lovely evocative spiritual meditation. This album is composed of individual tracks.

mega-t album CD booklet


The mega-t album CD booklet is a 100 page full-colour CD booklet, a guide to shamanism, sacred dance, gaia, evolutionary consciousness, love magic, full moon celebration, nature based spirituality and packed with exclusive interviews and artwork. (Based on an original album booklet (updated and expanded), featuring new articles and all-new graphics / artwork ).

Based on the liberation inspired / nature-attuned / spiritual / new conscious / harmonised hemisphere / psychedelic concept, it features articles on the gaia hypothesis, by James Lovelock (one of Britain's most important scientists and inventor of the gaia hypothesis), creation spirituality by Matthew Fox (founder of Creation Spirituality), 5 rhythms dance, an interview with Gabrielle Roth (founder of the 5 Rhythms dance movement), para-psychology by Serena Ronay-Dougall, psychedelics by Timothy Leary (world-famous Harvard psychologist and LSD pioneer), shamanism by Leo Rutherford, the solar festivals by Kate Pengelly (mirroring the theme of the shamanarchy album), environmental conservation by the Women's Environmental Network, Tantra by Caroline Aldred (best-selling tantra author), Be Here Now by Ram Dass, a quote by Sir Terry Pratchett, poetry from Michael Horovitz, From the Grasslands to the Starship by Terence Mckenna and more. A full list of authors can be found below. The booklet also includes an updated 'diy directory', a directory of ethical, environmental, spiritual, healing and DIY organisations and contacts for them, found in the UK and internationally.

The artwork is from Martin Wood (of Unimind), original mega-t artist and responsible for the overall album design and co-producer of tracks on the shamanarchy album. Further artwork comes from Sheila Maclurkin, Scandinavian surrealist and mega-t, Jamie Reid - famous Scots artist most well-known for his Sex Pistol's work, David Goodman of mega-t, Mel Pollard owner of Sauce design, Ed Grace - mega-t and Medland Reynolds ( of Thelemic Pulse). All the artwork is original.



The mega-t album booklet is printed on specially sourced sugarcane bagasse (waste) paper (the waste material from the sugarcane plant) which is virtually tree-free. It is elemental chlorine and acid-free using renewable raw materials. The paper mill is self-sustaining using an effluent water irrigation system, making this the cleanest paper on earth. Sugarcane is one of a smaller number of plants in the world that is an extremely high carbon-fixer (C4 plant) converting a much higher proportion of carbon-dioxide to oxygen. It is part of the solution to climate change (the UN is currently attempting to create the same high carbon-fixing type plants among rice plants for the world's food source). The paper is also very durable and the print quality is fine. It has been especially imported from India.
