Transmitting From Heaven [coll] – [Exist Dance]

aarbor   12/2/2020   A Library, CD

Michael Kandel and Tom Chasteen are the masterminds behind the Exist Dance label which they started in 1991. They also produced music as Tranquility Bass. They also used other monikers including: High Lonesome Sound System (breakbeats), Up Above the World (Goa trance). Kandel was considered a pioneer of electronic music psychedelia and ambient trip hop. They were definitely ahead of their time. Transmitting From Heaven was originally released in 1993, then re-released in 1999 this is a classic collection of their work. Most (maybe all) of the tracks are by Kandel and Chasteen with different monikers. The classics are: Cantamilla, I’m So High, They Came in Peace (which features Asian bird songs collected during a trip to Asia), and Mya Yadana. “Transmitting from Heaven” was the name of their studio in L.A.
