I'm gonna make the suggestion that the mentioning and or promoting of its new album be kept to a bare minimum rather than maximum, this is the Posford app, and especially since he recently dissed simon with regards to performing with shpongle! Just my two cents , which ain't worth much of course!

I wonder is there a different way of non-critical listening? Or even experiencing everything as subjectively perfect almost...so like a earfulness version of mindfulness - that sounds/thoughts just pass through awareness without much of a ripple? I dunno sometimes I get really fussy about what I want to hear - almost to the point of not liking anything - Shpongle bits too (which is probably some of the best music around). Antero Ali writes about how intelligence could be the ability to absorb, assimilate then communicate information - weirdly I can sense myself closing to hearing much other music for now - to make space to play at learning how to create - but it's hard for me to shift from being just ears into trying to make anything - trying to let go of idea I have nothing to share - but then half thinking I might be amazing - well that anyone could make wonderful music - or at least add to range of stuff out there - if only for someone else not to like it and make something better! I'm hopeful, in general, that our species best music/art is made in the future - being creative just seems like the most appropriate activity right now. Sorry for rambles.

There was a post from BlackDog the other day about how they're critical of nearly everything they hear - imagining it different somehow - they were saying that 'ear' for what could be was just bundled up with being an artist. I mostly trust MixMasterMorris' selections and amongst modern dub I regularly see Ott, Akasha and International Observer as his picks - so in the scheme of things Ott music is probably very good. I've tried a few times & bits of Ott are brilliant but I only really like a couple of his tracks and I've never managed to play a whole album of his without it jarring somehow - not really sure why.

Makes perfect sense Rachel!
Seems like noise is all that's coming from that guy no real sound with any meaningful substance

I recently lost my best mate since grade school over jealousy and malicious judgments. A complete lack of support for one the biggest moments in my life. I was devastated. I had to cut that rot out of my life.

the new Ott album is very commercial, and kind of what I expect since anything after the Twisted era just wasn't the same. Simon is a mastermind, one of a kind musician and anyone around him seems to flourish with talent at the time, Doof, Youth, Ott, Total Eclipse, Space Tribe, Benji, and all his time at Dragon Fly, TIP, Solstice and Twisted.

I agree with you Sam! It's Simon's app! I gave the album a listen and I wasn't all too impressed with it anyhow... My ears hear too much noise, not enough sound - does that make sense? I'm pretty biased when it comes to people disrespecting my man though!!! 😉

The latest album that has got me excited is Eat Static's newest. You can really hear the attention to detail, and it shows that Merv sweated blood over that thing! And that's not something I hear very often in albums...

Checked his album on Spotify... It's ok.

I love Ott, and he used to be my best mate. But yes, I was upset when I asked him to support Shpongle at Red Rocks, and his response was full of ego: "Open for you, with half the lights & lower volume!? I'd rather eat my own flesh!"
And we were disappointed at Twisted, having helped build his (at the time non-existent) career & paid him loads of money, as soon as he started to get any success he took all his stuff off twisted and never called us again.
He did admit to me in Sweden that he has a chip on his shoulder towards me though...
I checked his album out on Spotify, and it sounds ok.... Sort of what I'd expect, but perhaps not what I'd hoped.

Even in the best houses their brews trouble. Do as mum says and "Let sleeping dogs lie" not that anyone is a dog just an old wives tail. Keep the Shponglee side UP :::;)
