Ishq

Ishq

Profile:
Ishq have been making music since about 1995 under various guises including Indigo egg, Ishvara, Elve, and a few other alter egos. Ishq music skirts between IDM electronica, deep ambience and even has some newage overtones. The emphasis seems to be on music as harmony.

Ishq means "love" in Persian and Hindi, it is also a word used by such past masters as Rumi to express love of the divine and the ecstatic love of the Sufi or lover of God and all God's creation.

Matt and Jacqueline also run Virtual (3), a limited edition CD label which releases their more experimental soundscape music and other studio works.

I find their minimalism and good nature heartening and great to work to. Strength to strength with every subtle, gentle release.

Love beauty and harmony.

Some will find music with those qualities offensive if they are full of hate or shall we say insecure and judgemental.

Ishq means 'love' in case people didnt know.

Listen with your heart.

Ishq debuted with something amazing and unique. Every release since then has been getting more bland and inoffensive than the last. Now his music all sounds the same: some water sounds, some soft melodies, some girl moaning, nothing happening. Unfortunate that his original stroke of art went nowhere. From his extensive catalog, Orchid is the only one worth listening to.

Ishq is heavenly, ecstasy, bliss... simply amazing. Sama is one of my all time favorites.

Ishq is a truly magical project. Orchid is one of my definitive ambient favorites.
