Robert Jan Meyer also started his own compilation series: "Science Fiction Jazz 1-12 (Vol. 1 at the same time, was the beginning of the "Mole Listening Pearls"- Label) and "Batucada 1-3". He compiled the double CD "Blue Note Weekend" for the renowned jazz label "Blue Note" and two more samplers on the Japanese market.
With sonic waves in a sea of synths, battalions of brazilian batucada beats, flamenco solo's, piano solo's, vocal soarings from Hari Om and trancey dubs this really is more music from the otherworld. A place of undefinable and indescribable beauty where all cultures collide, genres are rode over roughshot, and nothing is outlawed. For those that know them these will be sentiments they recognise and welcome as further evidence of Shongle's reputation. To those that don't, welcome to a new universe one with it's own language and musical map, a place of beauty and impermanence.
