DJ Basilisk channels subliminal signals from the electronic noosphere on Silicon Overmind 5, the latest edition of his signature psychedelic techno mix series. On this outing we are treated to an expert blend of deep, dubby, and psychedelic techno bleeding into minimal and progressive psytrance, with five selections apiece from both Digital Diamonds and Techgnosis Records. This mix is an experiment in running the tape backwards, moving from light into darkness and back again, carrying the listener through inner worlds of thought and sensation. Subtle transitions and attention to harmonic theory create an illusion of seemingly endless evolution, as one track vanishes into the next in a dreamy, formless haze, while slow and deliberate tension-building invariably leads to cathartic release.
