04.05.08 - New review of Zen Conspiracy

Go here to read Wildy's positive review of Mashed Buddha's latest offering. He gives it a rating of "Buy It Now!" and says

"...cerebral and danceable at the same time... You will play it again and again ... one tasty recording....I have to recommend this highly."

02.11.08 - Zen Conspiracy Now Available

Mashed Buddha's second full length release is now available. Listen to samples here. Purchase at CDBaby or join MyTracks. more coming soon...

02.05.08 - Zen Conspiracy artwork and video

The new full length album is just about here. The album cover artwork for Zen Conspiracy was created by Peter Kuper who has produced covers for various magazines (Time, Newsweek, etc), not to mention creating all the Spy vs Spy comics for Mad Magazine since 1997. The stenciled painting Kuper created for Zen Conspiracy is the perfect vision of the album's namesake. More of his work at

Samples of the music and places to buy will be listed here soon. For now you may check out Four Keys to Zen directly below for three free tracks from the Zen Conspiracy album, or check out this new video which shows the making of the title track from the new album. It's something of a first draft of the tune which is much more fleshed out on the album itself. However much of the percussion and the complete piano solo is on the full album exactly as you see here.

07.09.07 - Four Keys to Zen

Mashed Buddha releases four tracks online for FREE, three new ones and one from the debut album, check them out here. They represent some of the new concepts I'm exploring for the upcoming full length album Zen Conspiracy, which is a unique dichotomy of more complex beats and simpler big beat dressed up with improvisation as well as layered melodies as is the usual M.O. As promised, the voice of famed guru Uri Geller threatens to put you into a hypnotic coma in the track 'Hype.' I hope you enjoy, and I'll keep you posted about the upcoming full length album which will be released in CD as well as at your favorite online digital music store.
