“The inspiration behind this set originally came to me after seeing the beautiful illustration of Amaryllis by Tori Wheeler, which also happens to be the same design I used as the artwork for the set. In this set, I am trying to explain the blooming process of a flower through music. Each bud goes through a very complicated transformation during the blooming process. Flowers are something which I have always considered to be magical, and it has never failed to amuse me.
Science of Blooming will feature tracks from Acid Pauli, Mooryc, Apparat, Aphex Twin, Jon Hopkins, Douglas Greed, Kadebostan, Nu & Christopher Schwarzwälder, No Accident In Paradise, Hidenobu Ito, Thom Yorke, Mind Against, Moderat, Max Cooper, Dirty Doering, and many more.
Hope you too will enjoy the magical evolution of a bud to an astonishing flower.”

Indian-born Stalvart John found his home in electronic music about a decade ago.
He started out playing for pirate radio stations based in the UK, and became resident DJ of Club 1100, Ramada Resorts, playing leading venues like Ava Lounge Dream Hotel Cochin, Lagoon Le Meridien Kochi, V Bar Hilton Garden Inn Trivandrum, and Pebble – The Jungle Lounge Bangalore.
Stalvart’s latest podcast goes by the name “In A Mind Place“. Its concept is not bound by the restrictions of genres. Instead, Stalvart’s idea is to take his listeners on an hour-long journey of sounds. You can listen to it on Tenzi FM every second Saturday of the month.
Other projects include ‘Civilization Of Sounds’ through which he tries to promote home-grown talents, and ‘Odyssey’ which curates pure chill-out, lounge, and experimental electronica sounds.
