niceFingers – Intercontinental Beat Collection

Intercontinential Beat Collection - niceFingers

What are we supposed to do with all this great music!? I mean seriously, there have been more extraordinary musicians surfacing this year than ever.

Once again, here we have some stellar synth work by a pair of intergalactic sound boys with roots in our home land of Ohio. I met Nick Waterhouse and Dave Schneider of niceFingers while in school in Columbus. It was just a few years ago that they were beginning to get their fingers dirty while bouncing around town getting into what the ColumBASS scene had to offer. As their fingers grew and danced to the rhythm of their beating eardrums, Nick and Dave went their separate ways to collect inspiration from the far reaching corners of the globe. With one man in China and the other in LA, niceFingers stretched their imaginations skyward to create a symphony of satellite traded synthetic sound.

This is Intercontinental Beat Connection. The album is available via BandCamp for a suggested donation of ONE MILLION DOLLARS! But you know, pay what you will.

And this is just the beginning. Stay tuned for another big album from this now reunited pair of killer creators set for release later this year.

Self Help – Gingko Biloba

Welcome Self Help back to Ganjaology as we present his brand new piece of sound art, which is (as you may have already guessed) absolutely incredible.  With the idea for this song stemming from an afro-funk sample and  over a year of thought and hard work put into every aspect of this “afro-tropical-house” beat, Self Help has come to terms with his beautifully bassy creation and is calling his finalish draft, Gingko Biloba.  Gingko Biloba also known as the Maidenhair Tree is a rare species of tree found in China that has no close living relatives and has been used in traditional medicinal practices in the past.  Is it a coincidence this song, which contains healing powers of it’s own, carries the name of an ancient healing tree?  I think not.  Self Help is one aware being, and this is his medicine that he’s giving out to the world, through one of the most ancient forms of administration. Through Music.   Enjoy this tune, it’s made up of nothing but love and positivity, and be sure to check back for more Self Help in the future!
