If you like cinematic EDM music with a badass beat and subliminal spiritual messages, Mystic Pete should most definitely be in your rotation. Humor, intelligence, and a spiritual bent make Mystic Pete one of the most unique artists coming out of LA. And BassPop is something entirely new for your music collection.
Pop, EDM, and world music… whaaaa?! Yeah, it’s all in there and is surprisingly awesome. And moving. “Goodbye [Om Namah Shivaya]” is a beautiful track. All tracks on BassPop pack a lovely wallop, in fact.
Mystic Pete himself is a fun-loving workaholic it seems. The music and video producer also hosts In a Dream on KXLU, 88.9 fm, Los Angeles Saturdays at midnight PST, a radio show featuring the DJ community. He’s featured trance, techno, house, electro, DnB, EDM, trap, world and conscious groove DJs.
He’s also an author (Mystic Pete Chronicles), cellist, vocalist, humorist, and teaches spirituality and the arts. And if that’s not enough, his album for yoga and meditation, Deep Self, has all of the transcendental chanting you could hope for.
Besides his dedication to all forms storytelling and music making, his new record BassPop is here to make your holiday funky and fun. There’s just not enough unique music for All Hallows’s Eve. There can definitely be more! So when the veil between the living and the dead becomes thinest, honor the dearly departed with some Mystic Pete.
