“Matters of the Heart” – Album Cover

By Michael DivineJune 19, 2021  •  Music

Bluetech’s record label “Behind the Sky” just released “Matters of the Heart” – a beautiful compilation of music from my long time friend DJ Maggie and featuring my painting “The Birth of Venus” on the cover. It’s available on Bandcamp both as a digital version and a beautiful double LP vinyl album.

From Bandcamp:

Behind The Sky is proud to present our 16th release, a gorgeous overview of contemporary downtempo electronic music, compiled by label DJ and co-collaborator extraordinaire DJ Maggie. The global ambient music scene and small chillout rooms are the spaces that have fed and informed our musical taste since the early 90’s. Paying homage to the deep waters and magical moments of the lesser and the unknown, this compilation is a love song to the community and sound that has inspired everything that we do.

“Collaborative creative projects have always held a special place in my heart. I learned about creative collaboration from hosting weekly Art Night events in the early 90s, teaming up with others to construct theme camps at Burning Man, and organizing outdoor gatherings with my Floasis and Moontribe crews. The spirit of many working toward a common creative goal is something that inspires me more than just about anything else. When Evan approached me to curate a compilation for Behind the Sky, highlighting this incredible community of inspiring electronic music, it felt like a great fit and an opportunity to invest energy in creative collaborative projects.” – Maggie
