Next is now, world music as the single most potent force in the culture of fusion ... World music-makers are like shamans, carrying us on magic carpets of riffs and melodies through states of consciousness that spin us out of time to lands not yet invented but glimpsed on the aural horizon ... And so we see that music brings us, in the jumping of our cells, from what is past to what is trying to become the future. lt expresses and fulfills our need to hear the spirit in the dark.
(Jean Houston in Jump Time, Sentient Publ. 2004)

Didgeridoo Rocks! reviewed by Music Design
Music Mosaic are the masters of creating a type of compilation that could be called "rhythm and drone," which features the didgeridoo as the primary instrument and plenty of funky techno grooves to back it up. DIDGERIDOO ROCKS follows suit and is one of the label's most adventurous didg recordings thus far, featuring a lot of energy and (as the title suggests) a touch of rock on a few of the tracks. The album opens with a full-on electro affair from Yomano & Stein, packed with propulsive beats and cutting edge mixing. "Butcherbird Boogie" from Tarshito has some rock guitar and a bluesy feel to it, making for a nice counterpoint with the earthy didg drones. Other highlights include Stephen Kent's jazzy "Water" and Ariel Kalma's Asian-inspired "Tablaridoo."
