The Goblin of illumiNaughty presents Sunday Chill Sessions!

The 20th mix of the series comes by SIDE LINER from Cosmicleaf Records. Enjoy the journey and stay tuned..

 

<<< SIDE LINER >>>

Side Liner began as a project in 2004 by Nick Miamis in Athens, Greece to explore the emotional side of music and give shape to the events of the day. His music is best noted for the continuous flow of thought it creates, often visually stimulating and evocative of a particular mood — without the jarring interruptions of so much of today’s electronic and chillout music.

The sounds created by Nick in his studio by the sea are heartfelt expressions of his concerns for the future — whatever it may bring.

Side liner has released 15 full albums: “Emotional Diving” (2006), “Once Upon A Time” (2007), “My Guardian Angel” (2008) ,”Crying Cities” (2009), ”Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle” (2009) , “Human Recycle” (2010), “Dream Stealers (2011), ”Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 2” (2012), “I A Bird Now” (2012) , “Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 3 (2013, “9 Years Side Liner” (2013), “Water Everywhere” (2013), “Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 4” (2013), “Out Of Town” (2016) with Aviron, “Last Breath” (2017) all through Cosmicleaf Records and numerous eps and tracks in compilations.

Miamis often releases “beta” versions of a track through Last.fm and other music channels on the web to get feedback from the public before finalizing an album. He personally reads and often responds to the feedback he receives through “shouts”. His broken English is testament to his desire to get everything he does “just right”, and the final production is usually flawless.

The critics have taken note of the body of work from Miamis and have begun to help spread the word— or the music. As Groove Magazine perfectly described, “Side Liner’s music is a journey through sublime textures that hopscotch between comforting warmth and oblique menace. Running the gamut from ambient to breaks, (the music) soars through dreamy soundscapes where Side Liner’s chilling vision of the future collides head-on with the realities of a perplexing modern world.”

Nick Miamis began releasing his music in 1999, his first record deal with Discobole Records. under various names before Side Liner project, his work was mostly considered “trance”. Miamis has created or produced over 330 tracks, covering 113releases -some of whom were on “chillout” compilations as well as his own albums. He is also the label manager of Cosmicleaf Records.

The Goblin of illumiNaughty presents Sunday Chill Sessions!

The fifteenth mix of the series comes by ZAFTRA MORGEN from Netherlands. Enjoy the journey and stay tuned.

<<< ZAFTRA MORGEN >>>

Zaftra was born in the mid-sixties and is inspired by the music of that era, which includes Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane. She lives in Nijmegen and is becoming a household name in the Dutch ambient and psybient scene. The use of psilocybin mushrooms was what caused Zaftra to become familiar with these genres. They grabbed her and have not let her go, partly because she feels healed by the music.

Zaftra started her own Youtube channel in early 2016, where she shares the best ambient and psybient music with her loyal listeners. They hold her musical choices in high regard. Her You Tube sets are focused on pure followers to chill music and who wants a set that breathes and fits, where the selection and sequence of the tracks are more determined by “flow” and “vibe” than bpm’s.

It was only a matter of time before she had to share her love of hypnotic music with an even larger group of like-minded individuals. This led to her first live sets, which range from two to four hours. Zaftra creates musical tension with her music. Her sets alternately build up, climax, and wind down again.
What makes Zaftra’s live sets special is that she bases her set completely on her audience. She does not have set lists. She customizes and improvises based on the type of venue and the kind of people in the audience. This is quite impressive of this rising, one-legged woman in her fifties, who operates in association with Gaia Psybient Music.
