The Medicine Songs EP is something AEONIX holds very dearly to their hearts. It has been a long time in the making, and finally ready for release. At the end of 2014, Jonnie King sat with Brother Edwin in a spiritual gathering and a vision came to him to share Edwin's icaros in the next AEONIX composition. After Edwin sent him some recordings, King brought them to his partner Johnny Reyes, which instantly sparked new creativity in their sound. The two saw this as a great opportunity to embark upon a slightly different direction with their music, and that next year AEONIX went on to open their set on the Robot Heart bus at Burning Man with the record, Pachamama Qhalichay, meaning "Earth Mother Healing."
Later on in 2015, King met Chonon Quena in another spiritual gathering, and a similar vision came to him as with Edwin. He invited Chonon to the studio to meet Reyes, and it was clear that something beautiful was about to emerge from this union. They recorded Joe Divina ("Divine Light") together which was the perfect companion to Pachamama Qhalichay. The boys then reached out to friends Goldcap, Simon Doty & Zein, and Sergio Santos to add their magical reinterpretations of the tracks to the Medicine Songs EP.
