Jimi Jaxon here! And this is my new mix alongside Machinedrum in Seattle! In awe that this is the third show I’ve played with Travis Stewart. I consider him to be one of the best artists around, a serious gift to the universe. Disco Droppings draws influence from this dude, and I intend to continue holding my light for diverse sounds such as these.

I believe you can look at these videos from so many angles and gain something positive. For some, there are some relaxing meditations here to lessen stress, worry and such. For the music producer, ambient soundscapes with a variety of themes to take influence from. For the spiritual seeker, these can be a catalyst, doorways to the unconscious, a deeper realization of self, and/or a connection with the Divine. I would consider myself a some combination of all these, and I’m hyped to share Nu Meditation Music here on Disco Droppings. This is a resource I use just about every day now, which I can’t say about any other music at the moment. It’s a part of my life, and soundtracks a variety of my activities. I care about style, and when I first found this channel I was relieved to see graphic design that wasn’t cheesy, as many New Age graphics can be (spoken with love, haha). A certain male from Portugal crafted a 100 video strong collection, neatly organized into playlists such as “Binaural Beats and Meditation Music”, “Sleep Music & Sounds”, “Shamanic Meditaiton Music”, and “Chakra Meditations”.
I’ve gone on some journeys with these: had restful sleep, exercised, drove, meditated, studied, had sex, everything! They are very malleable and overall expansive.
I’ve included some personal favorites or regulars in my history. Hope these are of some use to you. And cheers to Nu Mediation Music! Please keep it up!:]

Several years ago I found Tame Impala’s debut album, Innerspeaker. I listened and without any second guessing decided, “this is now my favorite band.” At that time my energy and mindset fit these sounds and words like a glove. What I thought was a band was really the core efforts of one Kevin Parker, performing with his band. With each successive album, Lonerism and now the masterful and expansive Currents, I’ve felt aligned with his flow. Tame Impala holds a platform that I love to stand on.
From a visual standpoint, I adore this newest execution for album three. Robert Beatty hit the feel of Currents with such precision. He also did the single art for “Disciples”, “Cause I’m A Man” and “Eventually”. Parker linked this style to vortex shedding in his recent Redit conversations. If these images aren’t quite enough for you, let’s move on to some of the show posters..
The top of was created by Status Serigraph and the bottom comes from Gregg Gordon at Gigart. More from a variety of artists can by found on Tame Impala’s Twitter.
Not only did Parker beat the dreaded sophmore slump with Lonerism, his newest moves are his most daring yet. He’s stepping into new territory and in his mind a place he’s always wanted to go to.
“I think I just wanted to make songs that I had always wanted to do, but I’d always shut out, because I thought that those influences were taboo or not fitting the realm of psych rock,” Parker said. “But the more I explore, the more I realise that those boundaries are meant to be broken.” via NME
It’s comforting that as I go through my life evolutions, all my ups and downs, wondering and wandering there’s someone out there on my wavelength, encouraging me to be myself and use these wonderful creative outlets for expression. Cheers to you Kevin Parker, a genius in my book.

Disco Droppings has two new features goin’ around, both on local artists and friends based in Seattle. First up, this closer look at Newaxeyes, my favorite band from the area. You first saw them here for our first interview of the year, and again at a Disco Droppings Presents show as headliners. I had the idea of getting this articulate bunch together to chat about their progression and plans for the future. Also got The Strangers Dave Segal in the mix.
This video would not have materialized had it not been for Ben Schauland over at Big Building, responsible for filming/editing, as well Joshua Chin, bringing more help with cameras and lighting. So yeah enjoy! And if you feel moved, head to the bands site and support their upcoming debut album!
We follow that with a spaced out free track from Soft Horizons. Also a past performer at our shows (formerly as Raveghost), this dude has been nothing but encouraging to me. I’m excited to be a small part of his artistic energy. Call this our summer comedown track of 2015.
Get em boyz! Got your back
