Over recent years my work has introduced me to many amazingly talented people …. none more so than the hugely talented Caz Coronel. Indeed, the extraordinary circumstances by which we finally met up, after knowing of each others work by reputation for many years, vindicate many of the experiences discussed in past editions of this “Consciousness Hour” series.

Expect invigorating and exciting percussive rhythms and massive earth-shattering baselines with worldly flavors! Often mashing and smashing other genres from, soul, hip-hop jazz & World music!

Venues including Fabric, XOYO, Printworks, Islington Metal Works, London Orbit, The Shard, Sparkford Hall, The Olympic Park, London ExCel, Gunnersbury Park, Remixes for Sony and music written and produced for top artists.
But adding to all this Caz is also a person fascinated by consciousness, OBE’s and altered-states of consciousness. As a direct descendant of the famous Dutch philosopher Benedict (Baruch) Spinoza it is not at all surprising to discover that she takes a deeply philosophical approach to these experiences. This is reflected in her hugely popular Conscious Explorers website and Facebook page …. a place where people from around the world exchange ideas and experiences relating to matters esoteric. http://consciousexplorers.com/ http://www.meetup.com/consciousexplorers
