E+SM Mix: Evolution for Your Ears

MixlpHave you ever wondered what a planetary transformation of society and consciousness based on the integration of esoteric philosophy, shamanic practice, design science, dance floor grooves, and cutting-edge communications technology might sound like? We hope so, because we devised our first free E+SM Mix: Evolution for Your Ears, to satisfy this secret yearning.

At the Evolver Social Movement, we believe in the concept of free – of sharing, foraging, scavenging, bittorenting, and all forms of open-source opportunism. We are, therefore, delighted to offer Evolution for Your Ears to you gratis, as a gift, with positively no strings attached, ever. In fact, we believe that everything should be free, from now until the end of time or the death of God, whichever comes first.

We promise that we will take your contributions and do good things with it, such as build a global network for conscious evolution, send cool authors out on tours, keep our staff fed and housed, build new widgets and suchlike on our web thingies, and put together conferences and festivals in sylvan glades or dense urban centers.

thievery_corporation440The Evolver Social Movement is a volunteer, non-profit initiative designed to raise consciousness, build community, and put ideals into practice. When you support E+SM, you help to build the scaffold for a new planetary culture that is visionary and pragmatic, experimental and organic, with a dash of paprika and turmeric, a hint of mint, a daub of Amazonian shamanism, and a healthy heap of permaculture precepts. We have over forty local groups that meet up in cities and towns around the world, which we call Evolver Spores, inspiring new connectivity, creative insurrection, and projects that support a thriving, healthy world.

Evolution for your Ears features the extraordinary talents of Thievery Corporation, The Nadis Warriors, KiloWatts, Dynasty Electric, Tipper, and more.

” I feel this is the most important time in human history. I know this generation has been placed here at this moment in time for a reason.

“Evolver Social Movement is a place where this “tribe” of healers, can find a community of support and inspiration. Where we can learn, exchange ideas, lift each other up, and help each other fulfill our purpose on this planet. A symbiotic network of shamans if you will.”

—Jason Hahn, Nadis Warriors Producer/Composer

    It’s not free if you have to give your email address.  “Free… just jump through these privacy-invading hoops first.”  If you are gonna claim something is opensource, at least keep to the spirit.

    Yes, and the Easter Bunny told me that it sounded like shitty house music created by trust-fund babies.

  3. HopeForTheBlurst, I don’t know an easier site for sharing embedded music than Bandcamp; it was my call when I organized this compilation.  I wasn’t happy when they recently started limiting the number of free downloads available to a given account under the pretense that it encourages musicians to value their work…

    …but honestly, all of this music is available somewhere else for free.  If you think it’s worth more to go scout it out and do the bundling yourself, please go ahead.  I am right there with you.  You don’t need to relinquish your hard-won anonymity to anyone.  Except for corporations and the government, to whom you are utterly transparent.

    When it comes to how the precious commodity of your email address…yes, totally:  it’s worth more to a community in which you actually care to participate.

  4. While I appreciate your efforts, I feel these sounds in general fall far from the evolutionary cusp of sound.  While a few tracks have a nice groove to them, many actually had a very old sound to them, like early 90’s casio downtempo kinda of stuff, with not very pioneering transitions or combinations of sound. And the lyrics did not strike any deep chord of shamanism or transformation for me – at one point a woman was repeating “depression” over and over again.

    I’m glad to see so many artists in our global community aspire to create transformational works, but simply titling it as so doesn’t elevate it’s frequency to that measure. I think this strata of the evolutionary consciousness needs to dig deeper and soar higher.
    But beyond all that, thank you for your efforts…
