Inspired by Transcendental Meditation, Fritz von Runte produced this mixtape using mainly samples from the Buddah Machine and tracks inspired by it. It doesn’t have any popular songs. There are no beats, no chorus, no falsettos. It’s got tracks by Justin Carter, John Mingay, Salakapakka Sound System and of course, FM3. It’s a very conceptual and monotonic piece, with some trance-inducing chords, and processed vocals layers. Transcendental Rumination is the perfect soundtrack for a solo long cross-country train ride, or even a simple afternoon in the park, whilst thinking about what went right, what went wrong and the ever-lasting doubts.
