Test Pressing

226 / Misha Hollenbach

Misha Hollenbach works with Thomas Bullock on the Cave Slave project. He’s done us the first mix of the year on a mellow psyche tip. Here’s what he said…

“Following the torches as they dip and sway in the darkness, they climb mountain paths with heads thrown back and eyes glazed, dancing to the beat of the drum. In this state of ekstasis they abandon themselves, dancing wildly, and at that moment of intense rapture became identified with the Gods themselves. 

They strike rocks with the thyrsus, and water gushes forth. They lower the thyrsus to the earth, and a spring of wine bubbles up. If they want milk, they scratch up the ground with their fingers and draw up the milky fluid. Honey trickles down from the thyrsus made of the wood of the ivy, they gird themselves with snakes and give suck to fawns and wolf cubs. Fire does not burn them. The snakes harmlessly lick up the sweat from their heated cheeks.”
