From the shores of Lake Ontario comes Parallel Minds, a label geared towards sharing Toronto sounds of a proggier persuasion. Brainchild of in-demand Canadian Ciel and the lesser known Daniel 58 and Yohei S., the label’s primed to make a big splash on its first release, a four-track affair furnished with breakbeat, hardcore and house cuts engineered to sooth the soul and expand your mind.

Produced under his newly-forged Radiant Aura Faculty alias, Raf Reza strikes up a balance between trippy atmospherics and earworm groove on the B1. A trancey, breakbeat-laden number, ‘Mana Sadhana’s goa stylings sit alongside efforts from the three label founders. Pairing quasi-spiritual flourishes with loping drum loops and a heavy dose of cowbell, it will teleport you to the mid-’90s heyday of Anjuna Beach.
