Spiritczualic Enhancement Center are a “spectral trance-jazz ensemble with a psychedelic-punk methodology”, as they define themselves - an eclectic group of 15 musicians, almost a collective, from Germany, Israel, Iran, USA, Turkey, UK, Russia and former Yugoslavia. Landing on Kryptox, with their 4th record (the others were self released) this is musical material the band recorded in several sessions in Romania and the Czech Republic, inside a church in Hamburg and while staying with a commune in rural Denmark over the last years.
Their live shows are wild happenings and their studio sessions are improvised rituals. Making use of traditional instruments, self-built electronics, synthesisers and a large rhythm section. The band describes the recording process as "a head-hunting tapestry woven with the tonal colours of music“. Recorded by 15 musicians spanning from Japan and Turkey to Moldova and Iran. The hypnotic music the collective creates is deeply psychedelic, but not in a prog or indie way. This music is more inspired by Miles Davis or Lonnie Listen Smith in the early 1970s.
After finishing and editing the album the band went to an old empty villa in Nice at the Côte d'Azur and later proceeded to Istria’s Adriatic coast to mix and finalise the session and create that what is ready to be released on Kryptox.
