“SOMETHING SPÆCIAL Vol.3 by KOPFLEUCHTEN”
Cosmic psychedelia and space music from 1967 to 1980. Kopfleuchten (http://kopf-leuchten.tumblr.com) is a blog by Oliver Schneider aka randomat (http://soundcloud.com/randomat) presenting highlights of psychedelic music from all over the world.
This mixed “SOMETHING SPÆCIAL” compilation Oliver called “Universal Friend Ship”. It features pre-disco, space pop, moog reggae, psychedelic cumbia, hypnotic afro beat and obscure electronic library music from early electronic music pioneers and experimental producers from 1967 to 1980. The compilation is an imaginary space flight passing Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Netherlands, Nigeria, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the US. The title “Universal Friend Ship” refers to the so-called “Overview Effect”, a cognitive shift reported by Astronauts looking at Earth from space, leading to the insight that we all have to care together, as one species, about our planet regardless of the affiliation to different nations, cultures, religions and economies.
Oliver is the brother of Markus Schneider from The Robot Scientists and Emerald & Doreen and is responsible for most of the artwork of their label releases.
