Psyder 20! The first one I did even before I adopted the name Flexagon but after 20 eclectic & chillout-ish mixes here we are. Scary times call for calming music so I thought it was a good idea to do a VERY downtempo mix. Starts off with the classic track Under Mount Kailash from the seminal concept album ‘The Mystery Of The Yeti pt2’ and heads off on a journey backwards and forwards through musical time, featuring as always tracks old and new. Running theme on this one is a combination of positivity mixed with introspection, that’s how I hear it anyway.
1 Process- Under Mount Kailash
2 Dhoop- Just A Little Deed
3 Amygdala- Fragments Of Spirit
4 CloZee & Laura Hahn- The Experience
5 Continuum V Axion- Power Breakfast
6 Supersillyus- Charade
7 Ott- Queen Of All Everything
8 Union Jack- There Will Be No Armageddon
9 Brian Eno- 22

I LOVE to DJ my own style of Psy-Trance late at night, which is usually a mixture of tracks old and new that actually fall somewhere in between the accepted pigeon holes of Psy-Trance, Goa-Trance and Progressive Trance, including throwing in the odd Goa classic from the 90s. (It’s only DJs that care about genres I think…….?)
What I haven’t done though is produce much if any music of that style, Magnification from my album Helios came closest to it but that was really made just for the album, wasn’t really dancefloor friendly and didn’t fit into any existing genre styles.
Fear not however, I now have 2 such tracks out at the same time!
First up is my remix of Mahanada‘s – Back To Nature out on the label Euroforix.
Follow the buy link on soundcloud or click here to track down the track from Euroforix’s website.
Next is an original Goa flavoured Flexagon style psytrance track from me.
Free on soundcloud if downloaded using The Artist Union‘s social sharing stuff. Or for a super easy download buy it on Bandcamp here! https://flexagon.bandcamp.com/track/are-u-ok
This track has also been used by Anya Goy @ Rainbow Hair Colour as the music to her new UV active hair video.

BLAKALASKA’s forthcoming series of remixes is being headed up by fellow Guernsey electronic tinker Flexagon. He has smashed up and re-imagined their track “Machine” into a edgy, darker and yet occasionally dreamlike workout. His trademark heavy rolling bass juxtaposed with Lee’s vocals sees this remix hit deeper than the original in the main, while becoming more delicate and contemplative in the breakdown.
”We are big fans of Flexagon’s music and were delighted when he offered to remix a track from our EP. His clever manipulation and reinvention of ‘Machine’ is like sweet sonic origami. Our musicles have definitely been flexed!” –BLAKALASKA.
Released February 1, 2016

My debut album as Flexagon is out on bandcamp.
Released 7 days ago, so far tracks from it have been played on both BBC Introducing Guernsey and BBC Introducing Devon (big thanks for his long running dedication on the Guernsey show go to Tom Girard), played out in Oz on Bondi Radio and shared across the Chill Broadcasting Network.
On the BBC side, to any unsigned artists reading this, using the BBC Introducing “Uploader” really does work!
I’m putting one track per week up on my soundcloud for free download, the first two from the album are up there already just waiting to be grabbed, eventually a completely free release on another mystery website should catchup with this plan………….but at the moment things are going well and I can’t say any more as I don’t have any dates or guarantees that the album will be accepted elsewhere. 😉

Mastering was by Colin Bennun @ The Stooodio, Bristol, UK
(I can’t recommend him enough, great results and very helpful)
