Ed Wynne & Gre Vanderloo - Tumbling Through The Floativerse (vinyl LP)
Since 1983, the Ozric Tentacles have woven psychedelic audio-tapestries that capture the almost dangerous musical diversity of the free festival scene, blending acid rock with dub, reggae, ethnic world music & electronic, jazzy experimentation.
Ed Wynne, founding member & leader of the outfit, now presents a new project. A long-term admirer & friend of Gre Vanderloo, better known from his project Gracerooms, the two have now teamed up to record ‘Tumbling Through The Floativerse’.
“I’ve always enjoyed the synth orientated musical worlds he creates with his project ‘Gracerooms’” says Ed of his new collaborator. “Shortly before lockdown 2020, whilst making the early stages of the recent Ozrics album ‘Space for the Earth’, we decided to try & make some tunes together. Gre came over from Holland where he lives, to the Blue Bubble Studio here in Fife & we started recording pretty much straight away. We ended up with about six definite starting points, which then developed & unfolded into a harmonic realm we referred to as ‘The Floativerse’… A place where you might escape gravity for a moment”.
Featuring guest appearances from Gracerooms bassist, Paul Klaessen & long-term Ozrics synth player Silas Neptune, the entire album was recorded at Ozrics headquarters; Blue Bubble Studios, engineered & produced by Ed Wynne & mastered by Adam Goodlet.
