Pre-orders available now for the latest offering from the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble, EARTH PORTALS.
Release Date: 9/15/17
“We recorded (Earth Portals) about 2 years ago, doing yoga on a farm in West Virginia for a few days, but then we let it sit to work on other projects, or just whenever we’d get sick of working on it. There were a lot of challenges. Earth Portals has a totally different vibe than any of the other material we’ve ever done, and it’s WAY different than the Asanas Ritual 2 album we’re currently wrapping up, but I like it a lot. Hopefully some of you will, too.” – Scott Massie
A limited D.I.Y. pressing of 100 copies, hand assembled and numbered by Innervenus, come with a free screen printed patch and download codes for Earth Portals and “Asteya” (the first track released from the Asanas Ritual, Vol. 2 sessions), can currently only be acquired at the BLACK YO)))GA webstore or on Bandcamp.

We filmed the footage for Asanas Ritual, Vol. 2 a couple weeks ago at a gutted warehouse in the South Side of Pittsburgh, re-uniting once again with Joe Stammerjohn of Eyes to the Sky Films (eyestotheskyfilms.com) and the amazing crew that he put together for this one. SOOOO excited to see how it comes out. Right now, we’re looking at an early 2018 release date, FYI. In the meantime, thought you might like to see a photo of the set.
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.
