On February 5th, my Great Teacher passed on into Mahasamadhi. His presence, his effort, his attention, his love, his devotion and his teachings have forever impacted the face of planet Earth. Personally, I have been enmeshed in Transcendental Meditation [TM] since just about the time I was born.
I attended courses with my Mom and I began meditating with a walking mantra and later moved on into the more advanced techniques. As a high school student @ Maharishi Upper School in Fairfield I spent my time rebelling against the dogma of the TM Movement, and then at the University of Iowa I began to explore consciousness via music, light and art...Raving and electronic music became power tools which needed juice and Transcendental Meditation was the obvious choice for me.

This show is NOT for the faint of heart. It is a truly deep journey into the most abstract and profound realms of electronic music. It is a jaunt into a space and time that reflects the direction music is taking as we fly into the ultra_future. 2012 may very well need a soundtrack, and these artists and their music could be the candidates for that task.
Others who enjoy the sublime abstraction of the concepts of stress-release or impending earth changes could possibly discover the music's ties to physiologically empowering rhythms that exist in indigenous cultures and traditions; modalities which are meant to LIFT YOU UP and BRING YOU THROUGH blocks in creativity and consciousness in order to reveal a higher state of awareness.

There are now 12 releases from Beautiful Eternal, even though the netlabel is officially less than two weeks old. Come bear witness to this rapidly expanding catalogue and bask in the warmth of the very first KRUU-inspired netlabel. See for yourself what can be accomplished in the spirit of CREATIVE COMMONS!
The new netlabel Beautiful Eternal is the product of a year's worth of education from Sundar Raman and James Moore about just how cool a tool Creative Commons (CC) actually is...I've been producing ambient and tribal electronic music for 14 years and even began my own "traditional" record label 10 years ago, but now the netlabel model with CC at its foundation is clearly the next stage of evolution.

Tonight I'm featuring 3 new releases from the new Creative Commons netlabel I've recently started, called BEAUTIFUL ETERNAL. The albums Motate [B.E. #00000], Bring it Back to Jack [B.E. #00002] and Ellis D. [B.E. #00008], range in style from hefty drum n' bass to bumping tekno to smooth chilled out ambient. Blessings!

marko fürstenberg was born in 1976 in thuringia, germany. influenced by the 80s music such as depeche mode, a-ha and new order he was attracted to electronic music from its beginning. very early marko made his first steps in recording his own tapes as “dolby”. in the beginning of 1995 he started dj-ing at several parties in thuringia and already then showing a techno-orientation originated from labels like x-trax, force inc., klang and later basic channel.

a few years later he started creating his first own electronic sounds with a pc and thus he invested constantly in technical equipment. in 2000 his first project “vertikal 23” was established, in cooperation with local musicians. the outcome was a mixture between downbeat & trip hop but later on marko developed his own deep sound.

Tonite's show will feature Creative Commons music from across the world...net-labels such as BROQUE.DE, MIKROTONIK and more..

There will be soothing pieces of chill-out, a touch of tekno, a very thick drum n' bass mix from the Sonic Walker folks, and then wind down the evening with a special niche blend of downtempo.

Tonite's show continues on with the original compositions of Obvious World's SoundRETROSPEKTIVE... there's tek-hop, drum n' bass, house, experimental and ambient compositions, along with a 30 minute mix --- all designed specifically for you.

The pieces grew from a deep desire to meld together the forms of hip hop with other genres, and then to just explode with odes to great new age psychedelic tribal gatherings organized by little elves in the thick mysterious forest.

Please refer to the playlist and look for an archived download of this and other shows available on the KRUUfm.com website in the audio section.
Glad to have you travelling along on this adventure!
Love, Light and Blessings!

Tonight’s show is presented fully in the spirit of creative commons and open source programming...finally. It’s been a year since KRUU opened its doors and raised its tower-of-power (happy 1 year anniversary everybody!) and I began broadcasting on a radio station again (thank you FCC).
As a musician who writes and plays his own tracks, the concept of having my music available for free just didn’t make sense. Open Source? Creative Commons? Hmmm..Sounded like Latin to me. No comprende amigo.
But the awesomeness has finally taken hold. Things have clicked. The pieces have come together. Now I get it.
