Pilgrims of the Mind – What’s Your Shrine?
One of the defining documents of the early ’90s Vancouver underground scene, What’s Your Shrine? by Pilgrims of the Mind aka Stephane Novak is a delicate and meticulously crafted fusion of various styles of dance music including progressive house, downtempo, ambient, tech house, and trance. Electronic music magazine XLR8R would feature the album in their February 1998 issue describing it as “a different sound, not merely adhering to trendy styles or dead-end one-up-man-ship, ‘What’s Your Shrine’ helps define what is really going on in the underground. It is an evolution of sounds and styles weened on the dancefloor, creating a music which can truly weave its way into your everyday life…” Released for the first time on vinyl via London-based DJ duo / label Heels & Souls.
