Meet the Crystal King

Meet the Crystal King

A momentous occasion indeed, Theta State Records has turned a new leaf with it’s first solo EP.  Coming from the captivating mind of avid floater Jon Timm, Crystal King is the newest installment of sensory deprivation inspired music. This 5 track EP truly captures the sensations of floating, drifting away, and being lifted to planes unknown. Riding on a wave of ethereal sonic scapes, Jon’s unusual studio techniques combined with post-float production makes for a very original sound. You can hear more about Jon’s process, and his experience with floating inspired music in his short podcast. Join us on the journey to meet the Crystal King. http://www.thetastaterecords.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Crystal-King-podcast.mp3     Mastering by: Jordan Lamp (Dendriform) jordan@floathq.com Artwork by: Cheylan Edison http://uniqueperceptionarts.tumblr.com/...

Introducing… Mushin Notion

It is with great pleasure that we get to announce the newest installment of Theta State Records: “Mushin Notion“ Mushin, the mind without mind, open to all. It is a state free from thoughts of anger, fear, and ego. It is flow. It’s a mind that is in total harmony with the Cosmos, like a still pond of water without any ripples where the surface reflects a clear and perfectly un-distorted image. With this album, take a journey through the waters of time and space and feel the peace present in all of us. Embrace the sonic-scapes of the mindless mind.

A New Album in the Works

Great News! Theta State Records has a new album in the works! Currently set to be released early January, just in time for the new year.  It will be full of chilled out beats, lush soundscapes, and ambient textures.  Our musically inclined floaters have been drifting through space picking up inspiration along the way, taking it home and sonically translating it into aural pleasures.  Look forward to new music from the void coming soon!

Now Accepting New Musicians!  

We are a small, specialized record label based in Portland, OR, focusing on downtempo/ambient/chillout music.  We operate a bit differently than other labels.  First off, in order to release music with us you must first experience floating.    No idea what floating is? http://floathq.com/learn/floating-overview (check out the beginners guide on the right-hand side) The good news is, as an artist the float will be on us in exchange for your time and effort as a musician.  The bad news is… actually there is no bad news, it is a win-win situation. Music on the label will have 3 possible avenues of manifestation:  A digital copy, a physical, or be used at Float On to be played in the tanks as a “times up” que where your music could be heard by up to 60 people a day. There will be 3 formats of release:  A various artists compilation (VA), an EP, or a full album. Interested in joining our floatastic music creation team?
