Dj Oof - Can You Pass The Oof Acid Test? Part 1
(promo CD/MP3 Podcast) Ping Pong DJOOF002, 2005-10-17

Une odyssée space rock lysergique avec de la pop psychédélique et des improvisations de pure folie. Un voyage étrange passant par la Grèce, le Brésil, la France, l'Allemagne, le Royaume-Uni et les Etats-Unis. Pour une meilleure compréhension de soi, une forte harmonie avec la nature, une lucidité supérieure, un aiguisement des sens.

A lysergic space rock odyssey with psychedelic pop and crazy jams. A freaky journey via Greece, Brasil, France, Germany, UK & USA. For a better comprehension of oneself, a strong harmony with nature, a higher clearness, a sharpening of the senses.

Ce mix a été conçu pour continuer à générer de la curiosité sur l'une des périodes les plus créatives de l'histoire de la musique (1967-1974). La sélection s'est concentrée sur l'acid-rock, quand d'impressionnants et talentueux musiciens mélangeaient improvisation, pop, rock, poésie, jazz ou de la musique traditionnelle du moyen-âge avec sincérité et amour. La personnalité et les émotions de ces morceaux sont sidérantes, comme l'est l'utilisation d'instruments pas vraiment communs: clavecin, guitare hawaïenne, sons et bruits électroniques, mellotron et sitar bien sûr... L'objectif consiste à ne pas oublier ces groupes formidables, qui, sur certain tracks -"indispensables"?- ont prouvé qu'ils pouvaient être intemporels, positifs ou sombres mais toujours aussi agréables même après d'innombrables écoutes.

This mix was made to keep the curiosity going about the music of one of the most creative period of music history (1966-1974). The selection has been focused on acid-rock, when impressively talented musicians blended improvisation, pop, rock, poetry, jazz or traditional medieval music with sincerity and love. The character and feelings of these tracks are striking, as is the use of uncommon instruments: harpsichord, hawaian guitar, electronic sounds and noises, mellotrons and sitar of course... It's about not forgetting these great bands, which on certain tracks -"must-haves"?- proved me, they could be timeless, positive or dark but enjoyable even after countless listenings.
