Scarab (1994). A new chapter in dub begins with the self-titled debut by Scarab, a revolving cast of inter-galactic citizens (not musicians) who have been known to beat on a drum, blow on a sax, cut-up records on the turntables, or just tap two empty Heineken bottles together when nothing else is handy. Over urgent primal polyrhythms, Scarab takes you on a journey into the future, stepping through the past lightly with a heavy dose of Middle Eastern mysticism. This is music for mind, body, and soul: so exotic and original that you can't even believe it's coming straight outta Brooklyn…

Saturnia started off in late 1996, founded by multi-instrumentalist Luis Simões. Originally meant to be a free art communal project of several artistic areas such as literature, photography, design, painting and music. Filipe homem and Luis Simões named the project. The name came from the merge between the saturnia butterfly, the planet Saturn and saturnalia. Late 2000 and early 2001 were spent finishing Saturnia's second long duration recording which was well received by music critics and was spoted by Cranium music who released it as "The Glitter Odd". Complete throughout with hiss and vinyl ticks you would think you old turntable is spinning. "The Glitter Odd" is firmly in the psychedelic realm, though lots of fun spacey synths are prominent with Dubs…

The band was formed in 1989 by Rick Eddy and Tim Drumheller, an American duo of multi-instrumentalists who handle keyboards, guitars, percussions, flute and trumpet, although they regularly enlist the contribution of talented guest musicians on drums and percussion. Heavily keyboard based (especially the piano), their style is a curious mixture of jazz, rock and classical (symphonic) music with dark, mysterious overtones without being sinister - more like suspenseful. Even when the guys kick into high gear the atmosphere remains tension-filled. As far as comparisons go, names such as Gentle Giant, Van der Graaf Generator or ELP have surfaced but none truly convey the originality of this twosome, whose sublime interplay and strong emphasis on counterpoint cleverly blends all of these bands' styles and more, resulting in a unique contemporary sound of its own.

"Ritual Ground" (1993) is a spontaneous sonic combustion, rich in cinematic overtones, deep atmospheres and tribal-electronic grooves. Steve Roach's musical explorations have taken him into many different realms, always touching a primal nerve and evoking brilliant mindscapes for the listener. A respected and much followed solo artist, Roach has also embarked on many collaborations in which the interplay between musicians nourishes the creative process. "Ritual Ground" is the result of one of those instrumental partnerships and stands as an important landmark in the development of tribal music. In 1993, Roach went to Europe for his first series of concerts outside the United States. While there, he met German synthesizer artist Elmar Schulte, whose own work has appeared on several different European labels…

The Winter Tree is the new moniker for the American outfit formerly known as Magus. Both are the main creative vehicle for composer/musician Andrew Laitres, and his latest collaborators Deb Bond (keyboards) and Mark Bond (vocals and guitars). Magus dates back to the mid 1980s and has many full length releases, but in 2010 Andrew changed the name to The Winter Tree after a song from one of his favorite bands, Renaissance. The self-titled debut album was released in 2011. Soft symphonic art rock with nods in the direction of folk music is what The Winter Tree explores on their debut album, music pastoral in spirit and expression, emphasizing gentle moods and careful melodies in a manner that should appeal well beyond the art rock universe…

Best known for being the keyboardist in La Maschera Di Cera, but mostly being a very versatile musician/composer who happens to be involved in several groups, Agostino Macor founded Zaal in 2002 as a jazz-prog project. Joining forces with a host of musicians that filled duties on violin, bass/cello/contrabass and drums, plus some guests, Macor managed to deliver a delicately colorful type of progressive-oriented jazz-rock, highly melodic and yet mysterious. The fluid incorporation of elements from symphonic prog, space-rock and chamber-rock gives the overall sound a rich set of atmospheres; simultaneously, the old school jazz factor helps the band to keep things lyrical.

4 Destinies (2014). "4 Destinies" is the third album recorded by the Italian composer and progressive rock musician Alex Carpani. This album is based on four possible destinies that a man may find on his life path, so actually it's more or less a concept album. Apart from Carpani (lead vocals, keyboards) the album had been recorded with David Jackson (ex-Van der Graaf Generator, saxophones, flutes), Ettore Salati (ex-The Watch, Soul Engine, DAAL, The Red Zen, guitars), GB Giorgi (bass), Alessandro Di Caprio (drums) and Joe Sal (additional vocals). From time to time the music on the four tracks tends in the direction of the classic progressive rock of the seventies. Four destinies, four long tracks with many changes in rhythm and mood, very rich in ideas and musical colours well performed by an excellent team of musicians…

Mathematicians were majorly a studio band and played live only in rare occasions. Their debut ''Irrational Numbers'' was released in 1994. The overall style is fiery guitar-based Fusion with melodic touches. Larry McCullough prooves to be a talented guitarist,his playing is very energetic,aggresive and powerful but also it turns right after into melodic or atmospheric lines. Kevin Kouts is also a very gifted drummer, the drumming is solid and dynamic all the way. Keyboard work by Bob Fields is somewhat inconsistent…

During their unsigned period, three demo recording were made, utilizing also keyboards, saxophone and percussion (Ľubos Tomasčik, Tatiana Siládiová and Alexander Čupka). In 1999, the first official album was released for Italian Mellow Records which contains also a material from their last (1997) demo recording "Hrdzavenie"…
