Hot on the heels of his first release ‘Urban Metta Vol 1’… Anaamaly is back with ‘Urban Metta Vol II’! Music is something Phoenix based musician Phil Strickland doesn’t take for granted; Phil, who records under the pseudonym Anaamaly has had lifelong passion for creating music.
The first volume of Urban Metta released earlier this year was a hit album that saw Anaamaly break into the Top 10 position of the ZMR (New Age Music) Charts, Urban Metta Vol 1 a collection of spiritually moving, instrumental soundscapes for deep sleep, relaxation, yoga, and meditation. Each soundscape designed to help take the listener on a journey of self-introspection or pure stillness.
Now, the URBAN METTA experience continues in Vol 2 with even more music that is an extra-dimensional journey of love, acceptance, forgiveness, truth, awareness, and self-empowerment. The intention of each soundscape is to provide the perfect backdrop for your meditation or yoga practice, relaxation, self-healing, and introspection. Deep grounding basses and emotional ambiences aim to create a rewarding in-the-Zen-moment.
Since he first picked up the trumpet as young musician, music and the love of composing was something that called Phil early on in life, but it remained a hobby until around 2011 until he decided to pursue a career in music. Since then Phil has produced various instrumental projects, music that was new to him, smooth grooves, laidback vibes that lead to his love for creating chill-out music.
By 2014 his style had evolved into more chilled hip-hop/electronic-influenced music, eventually leading to the release of his first single that year, titled Good Morning, which was later featured on an international compilation called Goa Chillout Zone, Vol. 6. Since then, his music has been used in marketing campaigns and commercial projects licensed through Getty and Audiosparx, and can be heard streaming in hotels and retail shopping centers throughout the world.
Having explored various genres throughout his musical career such as Hip-Hop, Chill-Out, Electronica, Ambient, Dub, and New Age, Phil strives to continue evolving and defining his style as a New Age Ambient composer and sound designer, while making New Age accessible to even more people.
Plans for a third installment in the Urban Metta series are currently in the works, as well as a new series of music called Urban Metta Rebirths, which will feature remixes of the original Urban Metta soundscapes spun into lounge and dub inspired genres. Phil also hopes to eventually partner with yoga and meditation centers to offer a live version of the Urban Metta experience.
Anaamaly ‘Urban Metta Vol 1’ and Now the New Release ‘Urban Metta Vol II’ – Both Albums are best described as the perfect Chill-Out music, Ambient music that will relax the mind, body and soul, and in today’s world… it’s the perfect music that is guaranteed to recharge you from head to toe.
