Boomkat Product Review:
The new age node croons over bubbling, flanging drum machine patterns. Sounds like he’s really heavy into the groove, which, funnily enough was written to accompany (maybe muffle out) the sounds of childbirth...
“Laraaji at his peak in the 1980s, using drum machines and stream-of-consciousness vocal mantra to make new-age trance pop. Om Namah Shivaya was originally released on cassette. This is its first time on vinyl.
Laraaji: “This 1984 recording, made at home on cassette, was inspired by request for personal long play soundtrack to accompany a delivery room child birth in Florida. It was intended to welcome a newborn child with love, ecstatic joy, and high positivism. I used the Casiotone M70 electric keyboard and chat sang while in a prepared vision trance. C Major.”
