"It's time to lie down and be counted," declared DJ, composer and Rising High artist Mixmaster Morris. Rising High Records was a mad, wondrous, pioneering indie label that helped define a glorious wave of electronic dance music in the UK up to the mid 1990’s. It was also one of the first dance labels to embrace the newly christened "chillout" - a soothing counterpoint to the excesses of the dance floor.
In memory of label founder Casper Pound (1971-2004), "This Is Rising High" is my 3-volume mix series celebrating the glorious diversity and psychedelic wonders of new-school ambient in its wide-eyed, optimistic youth. The 3 mixes draw from Rising High albums, singles and E.P.s and include many tracks not featured on any the five compilation albums of the "Chill Out Or Die" series.
Tonight you're going home in an ambience. Have a pleasant trip.
