Somewhere in the middle of the trance ocean lies a lost island, where the grooves that don't fit anywhere else can be found. On this island, strange percussion-loving creatures frolic to a sound that can be heard from the rocky beaches to the deepest jungle. All attempts to locate it on a map have been stymied by its neither-here-nor-there-ness, and the travellers that have returned from its shores tell wildly implausible tales. Some tell of a Goan feeling in the air; others, of a psychedelic mood, that recalls a time when experimentation and rule breaking was the norm. Could all of these stories be true? To find out, you'll have to seek the Island of Misfit Grooves...

All proceeds from the sale of this album will be donated to A Well-Fed World.
