Various ‎- Mantra Mix (Tibetan Refugee Benefit Album) [2xCD, Compilation]


A benefit album I can get behind, a ton of fantastic artists here!, some special versions/remixes. I’ve also included the quick time video which was included on the 2nd CD to go along with the music. I think it’s safe to say, there’s something for everyone here. Just a great chill out compilation for a crummy Monday.

Goldie – Timeless (UK, 2 × CD, Album, Limited Edition) [1995]



It’s been a break for the Summer and now my little girl is heading back to School and things are resuming to the normal routine, and for the first time this morning I put on my favorite Nike hoodie for the Sunday walk in the park. So with that, I return to posting these silver platters and the occasional vinyl.

Starting off the new  with the UK metal mouthed Goldie DrumNBass Exxxxtroidinaire’s “Timeless” album, a beautiful ping pong balls to the wall 2CD set. I found this UK limited edition version at a Goodwill in Seattle for a nice 2 bucks. Enjoy!

Timeless is the 1995 debut album by British electronic musician Goldie and a groundbreaking release in the history of drum and bass music.[1] The album blended the complex, chopped and layered breakbeats and deep basslines of jungle and drum and bass with expansive, symphonic strings and atmospherics, and female vocals, creating a crossover hit. It is listed as one of the best albums of all time in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

been a shit year so far, it plays like a bad country music song … among other losses and disappointments, I had to say “goodbye” to my dear sweet Lucie (Aussie-Retriever mix) and put her to sleep a couple weeks ago, she was with us through the good and bad for 12 years.

So it was this or that R.E.M. song.


This was my last photo of her ,before she went to doggie heaven.
