Ecstattic Studio - the recording company of engineer Ali Jaafar - is excited to present "The Adventure Years", their first compilation in four years. Documenting the time after leaving the second Ecstattic space and becoming a more nomadic operation - working out of a number of different spaces, primarily Flowers Studio in Uptown Minneapolis- the comp also marks a solid decade of running the company.
Fittingly, the comp features a wide range of collaborators both new and old: fellow travelers from the attic days (Charmings, Grasshopper, New Rocket Union, etc.) share space with new faces (Time Room, The Bloodies, etc.) to weave a sonic tapestry that encompasses the wide range of artists (and musical styles) that we've been privileged to work with during the last decade.
A huge thanks to all the artists who contributed; please find their links below and support them.
