It happened on 24 September 2010 at the Black Tornado Studio in Copenhagen. The multinational Øresund Space Collective jammed cheerfully with friendly musicians. The result was not only the CD "Give Your Brain A Rest From The Matrix" released in 2012, but also the two albums "Entering Into The Space Country" (2011) and "Phaze Your Fears" (2012), which have so far only been released on vinyl. Now the band has had an understanding and brings these two recordings on a double CD in a colorful folding cover. A larger community can finally witness the wondrous things that happened in the studio. Crystal-clear fingerpicking, sparkling guitar notes, sharp-edged solos, often several guitars at the same time. One thing is clear: The guitar is more than clearly shaping the total of 90 minutes of music (spread over five tracks). Spacy keyboards and hypnotic grooves join them. The pieces do not seem improvised, they are not boundless jams, rather they possess structure and format. And the sound is almost frighteningly clear.
