After years of performing, writing and recording music together in various projects flutist Pearce Van Der Merwe and percussionist-multi-instrumentalist Daniel Symons decided to create a duo together called COSMOSOPHY. After the success of their debut solo albums "Flooting Grooves--Upsyde Downe", "Dymons-Druids Brew" and their bands' album "The Peaking Godddess Collective-Organika" produced with Ajja, Master Margherita, DJ Gaspard, and Tanya (founders of Peak Records), Pearce and Dan are creating new concoctions of sounds different to all the previous releases... After touring all summer with their various live acts they headed back to the studio with loads of inspiration from the smiling dancefloors and chillouts from around the world! The result is a promising album released by Elestial Records and distributed by Arabesque Distribution, UK.... Cosmosophy is coming soon... on a sound system near you! The live set is extremely versatile as it is modulable to fit nicely on a mainstage, an afternoon dancefloor, alternative stage, or in the chillout area...
“Cosmosophy - Organic Space Age” is a melting pot of many influences. Coming from different yet similar musical horizons Pearce and Dan have brought together their knowledge as instrumentalists as much as electronic sonic wizards to make a new kind of electro/accoustic music.
Fat driving basslines, tribal and groovy beats, floating scapes, dreamy melodies and mysterious sounds and are the ingredients to this feast for the soul.
It also features Eulogio “Mambi” Arguelles-Puey, Cuban master of the congas and batas, Yann Shirardin with deep feeling on guitars and Eliot Short fiddling on the viola, the violin and mandolins.
With musical inspiration from all over the world and the ages a new journey is born…
A touch of funk, of the 70’s, breakbeats, ethnic, world fusion, dub, afro-beat, electronica, psychedelic and progressive trance… the combination of all these elements makes for a very ecclectic and even avantgarde album some say... Very groovy and flowing, subtly shifting atmospheres, down to earth dancing pulses and yet flying high like divine ecstatic dream states… Psychedelic Grooves shall we call it?
The lot is wrapped in a beautiful piece of original artwork by visionary artist Luke Brown.
