From the Amazonian rain forest comes one of the most potent catalysts for expanded awareness yet discovered by human beings. In Ecuador and Peru this medicine is known as Ayahuasca, a Quechua Indian word meaning "vine of the dead".

I enjoyed it. It certainly has a very "powerful" sound when cranked up on a decent system. It sounded good on my monitors too. Great combination of sounds on here. The vibe of this piece reminded me of Shpongle in places. The arrangement and mix were both great.

Good work :)

This is a really impressive piece. As seismic said, in the vein of sphongle, entheogenic, shulman, etc. The piece has a very peaceful, otherwordly vibe. I thought the soundscaping was all quite well done. The pace got a bit slow for me, but that's down to personal taste.

i hear these trips last forever :)

if i may ask, was the inspiration based on a first hand experience? this stuff has been fascinating to me for a good while...

the song certainly reflects on the powerful experience i imagine it to be. enjoyable!
