Gaudi – Live at Cervantes – 10/24

2015-10-24 - Gaudi

Hailing from London, Gaudi, known by many as the king of world bass, is back in North America and is scheduled to make an appearance at Cervantes on October 24th in Denver, Colorado.   Along for the ride will be Kaminanda, Cualli, and Digital Vagabond, all of whom are know to captivate crowds across the Americas and beyond.

Having last released ‘Dub, Sweat, & Tears’ in December 2014, it’s expected Gaudi has some new material to play for the world.  Gaudi’s live performance features synthesizers, CDJ’s, a theramin, sometimes one of the top vocalists in the world, and his own unique ability to improvise and create an unforgettable arrangement of music right in front of your eyes.

Ky-Mani Marley – Photos & Re-cap

Ky-Mani-Marley_honoring-the-greatest-(edited)Last Thursday, the second youngest of the Marley children, Ky-Mani Marley, came out to Denver to celebrate the 123rd birthday of Haile Selassie.

For those who have never been to Cervantes, it is one of Denver, Colorado’s, most talked about music venues.  Located in the ‘Five Points’ neighborhood just outside the downtown center, Cervantes is in the perfect location to draw a high energy, diverse, positive crowd to any shows.

Ky-Mani and his opening acts, Major Myjah and Denvers own, Tatanka, brought strictly positive vibes from the get-go.  Through their heavy bass rhythms, each group successfully rocked the crowd and together, created an environment any reggae/hip-hop lover would be proud to be at.

Ganjaology had the pleasure of attending and photographing the Ky-Mani Marley show.  Below are all original pictures of the night.

We want to say thanks to everyone who came out and made the night a special one!

Chalice In Wonderland – A Mix By : BC DUBCATS

In the midst of a cold winter in most parts of North America, a couple cool cats from British Colombia have recently released a mix that is nothing but pure summer vibes.  I feel that this is a little reminder from our northern neighbors that summer isn’t as far away as you might think…or it may feel.  You should probably crank the heat to about 85*F and roll up a couple fatty’s to properly enjoy this mix.  Big ups BC Dub Cats for this incredibly chill mix!

Darkstorm – Mind Like Water

Ganjaology, Darkstorm

Mellow hip hop, bordering on UK grime and at times darker, more sinister rhythms – Mind Like Water is a purely original piece of sonic art. From the depths of his being, Abdullah Al-wali aka Darkstorm of London, UK brings us this album brimming with soul and steeping with curiosity toward the darker side of life.

These are the frequencies from which we guard our sleeping children when we sing to them before sending them off into the dream time, where they otherwise might be haunted by the sights and sounds of Adam’s original wife, Lilith. But, as adults we relish in these sounds, that bring us to the edge of awareness…. To that strange place between sleep and dream. Our minds are strange in this way. And so is this music.

Al-wali is the co-founder of Bad Taste Records and also makes music under the alias Lean Low. Check out more from him here. And if you like the album, be sure to buy it direct via Bandcamp here.

J-Path – Threshing Ground (Trigram 01)

Dub-Steppers and Reggae Heads Unite!

This release, coming from the heads at Steppas Records aka Trigram, is a nice blend between deep dubstep and reggae. These guys have been putting out awesome bass music, pressing it to vinyl, and spreading it to the world for quite some time now. They’re coming at the scene with their latest release with Seoul, South Korea Native J-Path. The A-side of the release is the wonderful release with a bit of a percussive swing to it, and the B-side is the talented Alpha Steppa’s remix of tune. Check out these vibey tunes below and grab the release on vinyl if your decks are hungry for fresh acetate!

 

Pressure Dub Sound – Lion Dub (Zion Train Remix)

Zion Train, Ganjaology

Shandy – Herb EP – New World Audio

You know we love everything herb related over here at Ganjaology.  Big Ups Shandy for this large single that came out on New World Audio earlier this month!  The original Herb has got an incredibly chilled out minimal dub vibe to it.  It’s nice hearing some tunes that let you think and give you some space to breath.  Squarewave kept a very similar deep vibe on his VIP remix, but stepped up the bounce of the song with some very ‘2013’ hi-hats and percussion that fill out the body of the beat.  All in all this single is awesome. Be expecting to hear HERB world wide for a long time to come.

nonXero Remixes Rhythm & Sound with Exuberance!

Ganjaology, nonXero

So I’ve been really digging the music I have from the classic Berlin dub duo Rhythm & Sound, and I was searching for some new tunes from them when I came across this remix by Toronto based dubstepper, nonXero. While at first I was skeptical, after hitting play, I was immediately sucked in. The flavor with which he highlights the tune is exquisite. Crisp and clean, yet echoing with rushes and sweeps, the track breaks, builds, breaths and bellows… bursting with delicious atmospherics and heavenly bass.

If you are not already hip to the music coming from nonXero, I would highly recommend you tune in. He is a staple of the Toronto electronic scene and heads up 1N 7H3 M1X Records. I added a few additional tracks for y’all to groove to. Many of these include DL links. Get served!

Big up nonXero, the Toronto bass scene, and most importantly… yourself.

Tribe12 Music – Concealed Identity EP

Concealed Identity, J. Robinson, Him Haile, Train To Zion

Deep vibes,  steeped in sweeping rushes, heartfelt bellows and organic percussion – This is Concealed Identity. Still fairly fresh on the scene, upcoming UK bass label Tribe12 Music is providing for us yet another insatiable release to fuel our fascination. With echoing voices and deep burgeoning bass, this is not the dubstep of the masses, but rather a testament to the true nature of dub music. Release the reggae lover within you and listen with your ears while connecting with your heart.

The EP is available for digital download on April 29th, 2013. Get it here!
