Release Text:
“Fifteen years after the landmark Mahorka compilation Music For Elevators Vol.1 and six years after the latest volume 4, in the beginning of the summer of 2017, for the Netlabel Day occassion, we released “Music For Elevators vol.5 (Part 1)”. As the title suggested, we definitely were to have more than one album for the fifth volume. To blame are that number of years between the previous installment and the moment a new volume felt ripe and right to start materialising and also the number of great Mahorka and related artists from throughout the “genres” and approaches spectrum that we have been collaborating with through the years. In August 2017 Part 2 came out, continuing what is our biggest compilation project to date.

Finally, at the end of 2017, we complete (and quite epically that is) what just might be the last volume of Music For Elevators, with the release of Part 3, again, taking you on board for a pushing all kinds of boundaries trip through what ambient music can be and what can be ambient music.” – Mahorka

Release Text:
“We’re not preaching Straight Edge, Healthy Living, PMA or Spirituality at you. Not everyone in the band takes the same stance on everything. We embrace those differences. This is not a album with an agenda. These are simply stories and methods that we’ve found that personally work for us. Please seek to better yourself on your own personal path. This album is simply about Our passions. Make your own. We do this because it’s all we know. So many things separate us in life…. Religion, Politics, Sex, Money, Education, Race, Social Status, Social Media and Age. Let’s rise above all of it. Unity.” – 2Minute Minor
