Among the goodies in the Tiki Oasis 14: “Beat Tiki” gift bag will be a postcard containing a code which will give you access to a free 16 track Dionysus Records sampler titled Dig That Crazy Dionysus Beat! Most of the cards will be distributed at Tiki Oasis though we will be offering a limited amount to Dionysus mail order and eBay customers, until they are gone. The codes will expire on December 31, 2014.
The compilation contains tracks from current releases, not-so-current releases and some upcoming things as well! This is the first Dionysus sampler since the Top Secret Dionysus Sampler which was put together for Tiki Oasis 12.
The tracks celebrate recent Dionysus releases by Jason Lee and the R.I.P. Tides, Turkey’s Replikas who recorded an entire LP of classic Antolian garage and psych, The Satelliters (x2 2014 releases) and The Dukes of Hamburg, long out of print vinyl repressings by The Surf Teens and Avengers VI, upcoming vinyl LP releases by The Voodoo Organist and The Alika Lyman Group, a bonus track which will not appear on an upcoming 78 RPM release by Skip Heller’s Hot Five with Dionysus Records head honcho Lee Joseph on bass, tracks from last year’s vinyl releases by Creepxotica, Orchestra Superstring, and Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited, a track from a second limited blue vinyl pressing of The Beachcomber Trio‘s “Live at Kahiki” Lp and a track from an upcoming compilation of the first two Yard Trauma albums which was also the A side of a 7″ which was the very first release on Dionysus!
