AMBROSIA (Full Mix) is compiled by Fishimself and consists of 10 tracks composed by mainly Greek artists, whose names were seldom heard of, but who should quickly reach the pantheon of Psychill. The compilation forms a dense musical journey built upon warm, downtempo grooves with a touch of electronica, breakbeat and idm, wrapped in hypnotic atmospheres, pulsating basslines and melancholic pads.
Ambrosia formed in 1970, in the South Bay/San Pedro area of Southern California. The musicians were inspired by the progressive rock era, and developed a large regional following for their inventive musicianship and skillful arranging. Ambrosia came to national prominence in 1975 with the release of their self-titled debut album on 20th Century Fox Records. Ambrosia was produced and engineered by the legendary Alan Parsons, and featured the top ten hit "Holdin' on to Yesterday", as well as the FM classic "Nice Nice, Very Nice". After lengthy touring, the band returned. The latter sets to music the lyrics to a poem in Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle". Alan Parsons was the engineer for Ambrosia's first album and the producer for their second.

Although they would become better known for smooth AOR ballads like "How Much I Feel," Ambrosia first made their name with this album of progressive rock with a pop music twist. Its songs skillfully blend strong melodic hooks and smooth vocal harmonies with music of an almost symphonic density.
