We’ve been working on a lot of new music lately to get ready for Asanas Ritual Vol. 2. Some of the demos will be making their way to our SoundCloud page, such as this collaboration with Jim Wylde/sp3ct3rs. At 35 minutes, it seems perfect for morning practice. Enjoy.

From the official press release
“…Since 2012, the music for classes has been a series of mix-tapes. This particular recording, however, was performed and created by the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble, an eclectic group of metallic hippies and doomlords, headed up by Kimee’s husband, Scott Massie. This ensemble has created a soundscape tailored to form a heavy meditative space and spread the benefits of yoga to people in their own art and music communities. People who may battle depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug addiction, trauma/PTSD, phobias, dark passengers, etc., those who may not feel they fit into the typical yoga classes, the people who, in all rights, may need the balance and release of yoga the most to lead rich and fulfilling lives.
This project consists of two releases. The first will be the BLACK YO)))GA DVD/instructional video, Asanas Ritual Vol 1, directed by Joseph Stammerjohn of Eyes To The Sky Films, containing a full one-hour yoga class, stylized and set to their original score. The second release will be a CD version of the soundtrack on its own. Both releases contain plenty of bonus features and will be available in stores and online October 2015 via Screaming Crow Records.”
