ENDLESS MIND PORTAL is my pranam to the old and ancient masters of the ‚Berlin School‘ of electronic music, who‘s astonishing music is an neverending well of enjoyment and inspiration to me, and is therefore, with all respect, dedicated to them!
This project was triggered by meeting some excellent musicians (and their music) in the internet forum of the EM Portal (www.emportal.info/portal.php
) - a great place to visit if You are interested in electronic music! Without this encounter this project would never have happened, so my special thanks goes to everyone there, and especially to Stephen Parsick and Bert ‚Phrozenlight‘ Hülshoff.
The conceptual idea (which is not exactly new, especially in the field of electronic music) was inspired by some of my favorite authors:
James Graham Ballard, Olaf Stapeldon, H.P. Lovecraft and Wiliam Hope Hodgson.
Without the support and patience of my family, and without the interest and feedback of a lot of friends, this project never would have been possible, and my love and heartfelt thanks go to all of You!

P.S. Please note that there is a large amount of BONUS material which comes with the album when You purchase it (just as much as the "main section" maybe even more...).
Actually, "The Endless Mind - Chill Mix" is the first of those bonus tracks, but since it was played in quite a couple of radio shows and is perhaps the most "commercial" track in the whole project, I decided to keep it in the above playlist...
