"An enthralling experience.. this is simply not be missed!"
"A sprawling, hazy tapestry that blends colours, countries and time periods.. A natural and easy-going spirit of improvisation takes hold of the record. It's that sense of order eventually permeating out of chaos and gripping hold to take us on a hypnotic, heady journey that makes Carpet Album such an enthralling experience. A brilliant and authentic debut, this is simply not be missed."
"Pulsing with the kosmiche and frankly, psychedelic as fuck."
"With its dark, layered conceits, its billowing haze of atmospherics, looseness subducted to the greater evocative purpose of the record, this is music to indulge to; music to sprawl to. It opens with a luring lushness only, with a perfect smile, to tempt you to follow it through streets ever less populous to where the wild things are - pulsing with the kosmiche and frankly, psychedelic as fuck. Travel deep and travel wisely."

"Uncompromising in their quest for the wildest of wig-outs.
"Free-flowing.. cosmically-inclined instrumental jams to get lost in. Microtonal mood music for the terminally maladjusted, drones for days.. wonkier than a weekend with Damo Suzuki – you get the feeling that Mark E. Smith would have loved these guys.. Melodies subsumed by sound, the eternal feedback of the acid-fried mind. Looking back to the phuture, stubbornly uncompromising in their quest for the wildest of wig-outs."
"Something quite spiritual... I find their music to be ineffable."
"Everyone of these albums is brilliant in its own right… and also singularly unique in its own right.. There is something quite spiritual in these recordings…which, of course, you cannot quite put your finger on. There is simply too much going on here on all sorts of levels to be able to do this music anything close to justice... why I haven’t written about Spiritczualic before.. is because I find their music to be ineffable."
Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
is a spectral trance-jazz ensemble with a psychedelic-punk methodology.
Spiritczualic (“cz” borrowed from the Polish / tʂ / hard “tch”) - a word-melange of ritualic and spiritual, reflects upon the ancient practice of musical ritualism. As an idea, it greatly predates the physical occurrence of the Enhancement Center on Christmas Day 2017, when an Ottoman building below the Gates of Old Jerusalem illicitly opened itself for a remarkable meeting.
The trespassing people who happened to be there - admittingly bizarre participants synchronized by state-of-mind rather than tune or scale - began exploring sonic sessions of do-it-yourself mysticism.
As an outernational movement, Spiritczualic functions as an eclectic traveling nexus -- collecting dozens of participants to explore alchemical realms of sonic ritualism.
Witnesses of its gatherings have indeed reported moments of divination - and possibly sorcery. This raises the question, will the audience once again behold the allurement of Higher Sources - or rather testify to trickery.
Fusing self-built electronics and digital algorithms with experimental improvisation and traditional instruments, recurring collaborators have studied under masters of Andalusian music; conducted Grammy-award nominated digging; and established underground venues and professional recording studios.
Since its formation, many collaborators have "visited the Center," with origins from Iraq, Iran, Israel, Germany, Russia, USA, Japan, Turkey, Poland, Macedonia, Montenegro, Philippines, Moldova, Romania, Czechia, Denmark and England.
Visual artist Dima Rabik contributes his devotional miniature ink style to all Spiritczualic releases. Together with Ventral is Golden concerts have become mythic temples adorned with microscopic visual projections and syncretic collages.
When manifesting residencies in warehouses and repurposed buildings, Spiritczualic Enhancement Center produces site-specific recordings and space-oriented audio-visual installations.
