Everyone has their own personal stories, walk their own paths, perceive and live by their own values and belief systems. The stories entwine, the paths cross, and our personal faith ripen into a shared, cosmic religion. We might be privileged or just exceptionally fortunate for those faithfull moments we experience at the sunset. That is our temple, a sacred space where we connect, dance, celebrate, which surrounds and fulfills us inside out.

After the first collaboration release with Pixan Recordings last summer, we aim to bring another load of musical melting pot, this time in collaboration with Sangoma Records. While Purple is the colour of spirituality, incorporated in the crown chakra and the connection between mankind and its spiritual counterparts, the term Sangoma refers to the Shamans and Healers of the Zulu and Swazi tribes from southern Africa. The musical mixture of Purple Hexagon Records and Sangoma Records therefore results in a sonic cure for your ears, neurons, minds, chakras, dancing feet or whatever center it is that gathers your energies. Having compiled both “Brotherys Balderdash” Insults, it was without hesitation that the choice fell on G4rY and Merry:) a.k.a. the Broth3rys – both label djs for Purple Hexagon with their collaboration project, and Sangoma’s with their individual dj-sets. At times like this, when new labels are mushrooming again, trying to find their spot in the musical circuit and focusing on shaping their own individual identity, we decided to stick to a well known old African proverb in order to find new ways to connect different approaches and highlight common musical as well as personal grounds: “If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together!”
