Welcome to T.S.A.I.F.A.R.D (The Solar Alliance Institute For Auditory Research & Development)

Our dedicated team of researchers meet once a year at an undisclosed remote cabin located in the northern hemisphere. For three days they conduct studies and experiments with soundwaves and revolutionary (patented) techniques in the field of healing frequencies.

After two straight days of research, mind expansive practices and recording, they spend the last day preparing their finds for human comprehension.

Welcome to the Solar Alliance

A new surprise album from the Ute.Rec group. Skimmed through the samples and they sounded very nice! Will give an in-depth listen later.
Some personal highlights from what I heard:


Theories Of Atlantis


E.A.R.T.H.


Tree People

already had one listen, it's very good. too soon to know what I like best, but you already shared some key contenders.

wonder why wouldn't they release on UTE, considering its the people who run it?

Listended up to Varmland Cruise and am really enjoying most tracks. For me though i'd rather have smaller EP's then these big albums at once. Will listen the the remaining tracks another day so to not oversaturate.

Took me a minute to find this interview as I kept mixing it up with the one on Trancefix. Translusid is for their spontaneous and less polished work. They said the stuff on the UTE label sometimes takes two years from start to finish. That's some QA/QC for ya.

This album took 3 days to create.
And it will most likely end up in the top three of the year.

The flow of it, is what makes it so good.
It feels like a meditation. It flows like water.

Isn't it strange, how those synthesized sounds can feel so organic. To me this actually feels more organic, more natural, than the acoustic music I know.

One more top quality release,
this year had started unbelievably well.

Under Vänern and Värmland Cruise for me. The rest I'm not feeling at all.

bomb followed by bomb. Love what they have put together, and in only 3 days is nice achievement. Theories of Atlantis is eyes closing experience.

Alright, listened to the full thing. The main impression? Appreciate the sounds and the overall idea, however the music just doesn't grab me. Do you wonder... is a stunner though!
