Dubamine – Bust ‘Em EP – Out Now!!

Bust 'Em Art

We are proud to announce Ganjaology’s first release with multi-talented creator Dubamine! The Bust ‘Em EP features four tracks filled with drippy synths, crisp percussion, and bubbling dub baselines – all packaged into a visionary dub selector’s dream pack. Whether your tastes tend toward the heavier side of dubstep or the more reggae influenced, vibes oriented rub-a-dub stylee, the Bust ‘Em EP has something for you.

Native to Santa Cruz, based in New York – 22 year old Lucas Heinel is Dubamine. Already receiving accolade from some of the scene’s heaviest hitting DJs, the sound boy is on track to be one of the hottest up and coming artists of 2013. His tune “Wicked Dub” was recently featured on a mix by legendary UK selector, Cessman. With plans to release a series of EPs followed by a feature length album through Ganjaology Records, Heinel has his work cut out for him.

When asked, “Why Dubamine?” – Heinel replied that the name highlights the idea that within each of our brains is a little receptor specifically targeted to resonate with the sounds of dub. The Bust’em EP, available for free download June 1st, is just a teaser of what this sound boy scientist can do. We invite you to awaken your consciousness with a pure dose of Dubamine!

To get things started, the first track entitled Bust ‘Em sets the precedent for this sinister sound pack. The track features classic vocal samples carefully inlaid atop a burping bass line, smacking drums and a stack of spacey dub synths. Bouncy and delicious, this one definitely defies gravity.

Next up is another round of dopeness, aptly titled Dro. Featuring an acapella of E40’s “Pimpin Smokin Dro”, this hard hitting track will surely find it’s way into the crates of many.

For those that thought the EP wasn’t quite gutter enough, the tune Gutter Punk certainly exceeds expectation. Heavy synths and smacking snares characterize this dastardly track.

Lastly, we have Dubamine’s self proclaimed favorite of the release, Vita Mon C VIP. Throw this one in the mix for a straight to the vein dose of Dubamine’s vital dubs. One question, “Are you feeling alright!?”

“Ganja Rush”

“Ganja Rush”,

or the Regulation of a Natural in the Land of a Thousand Kisses,

by Papillon Philippe, Comte du Cray

The prohibition has ended. Welcome to the second G…. Rush.

For the first time in the history of American capitalism, the tobacco and alcohol industries are going to get some serious competition. Their markets will shrink a substantial amount; may be 25%.

How is this going to happen you might ask?

Very simply: the new kid on the block is called cannabis (C). Its consumption and its trade is now, as we speak, being legalized by the state governments of Washington and Colorado. You can now walk the streets of downtown Seattle while puffing on a (C) cigarette, freely. I was doing so last month one evening. A policeman walked by me. He did not say a word, nor did he even look in my direction. But he for sure smelled it. I suspected he probably smoked it too…

A new society awareness is being invented by the American population. One can draw a direct parallel with the 1930’s when alcohol became finally legal.

Only one must add to this comparison a fact of pure wonder, the one that will change the world as we know it: cannabis acting as the “health angel”, which in turn will prove alcohol (as well as tobacco) as “hell’s angels”. An iconic, societal combat is about to begin.

We will separate our study in two parts:

The first explains how cannabis teaches you the creative process, which starts with the thought process and finishes with the emotional one, while the link is played by the nervous system. Creativity is the voyage between the thought and the emotion. To travel the distance, we depend on the nerve. We ride on it.

We must therefore protect the latter — which is what alcohol (A), tobacco (T) and cannabis (C) do so well — in order to facilitate the creative process. Only we will explain how one of those three actors, (C), does it so much more effectively, because, among other reasons (those two being linked):

It creates much less side effects than the two others; which, in turn, makes (C) a much better actor on neuro-transmitters.

The second part will explain how the (C) makes you physiologically aware of the deficits of (A) and (T), and their taxing on one’s psycho-physical wealth. We all know about how bad those two compounds are for us (except for the moderate consumption of wholesome, pure, synthetics free red wine). But here, we will explore how (C) gets you to the feeling of such deficits, which in turn will subconsciously dictate behavioral and life style changes. And that for the better.

Dubamine – Ju Shei (Feat. Jelal)

Santa Cruz’s hottest underground bass producer, Dubamine, is known to many for his heavy reggae influenced dubstep.  However, this time he’s showing his hip-hop background and versatile style with this beautiful track entitled Ju Shei.  Jelal is the MC responsible for the deep smooth lyrics over top of Dubamines production which create a warm, sleepy environment for listeners.  This is not the first time the two have collaborated on a track together.  A little less than a year ago Dubamine and Jelal released two tracks entitled The Goal and Vocal Illusions, which much like Ju Shei, carry an old school hip-hop feel and really just get you in a comfortable chillin mood.  Check out all three tracks from the Californians and be on the lookout for more collaborations from Dubamine and Jelal in the near future!

Dubamine – Salty Riddim

We are gonna kick off the month of July properly with this big new riddim from our homie Dubamine down in Santa Cruz, CA.  If you’ve checked out Ganjaology anytime over the past year then you are well aware of the awesomeness that this youngin’ is bringing to the world.  If  not…then now you know!  Follow him on SoundCloud and support the hard work being put forth by Dubamine.  Big Ups!

Dubamine – Tribute

Dubamine, a top shelf riddim creator, delivers with the purest of vibrations forming a spacey atmosphere colored by echoing and ribbed scraper percussion.  Chiming with authentic flavor, Dubamine floods the floor with freshly fused ragga dub sound.  Tributing to its roots and praising a master of dub creation, Dubamine, continues this fresh legacy of rootsy dub production. Cheers to any Dubamine dose, this strong substance is sure to supply ultimate satisfaction.

Dubamine – Informer

Dubamine is comin’ in tuff with his new track Informer.  It’s got that distinct Dubamine sound…drums that hit your soul rather than just your ears, a bubbly wobble walking you through the scene, and a worldly vibe that leaves you no choice but to sway and smile… I think you’ll all like what you’re about to hear.  This tune is worth letting the neighbors hear! 

Vita Mon C – Dubamine

Are you feeling alright?  Ugh…sick stomach..a bad headache…vomiting a little bit…hot flashes every other minute…ugh…TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! Don’t forget to take some time some time out of your day to chill.  It’s as important as working.  Don’t overwork your body.  You need all the energy you can get this winter.  We are not halfway through the season.  Stay healthy.  Promote positivity through your daily interactions with strangers.  Wash your hands. They’re dirty.  I see girls open doors with their feet.  Your feet smell. Wash those too.  Stay up on your daily dosage of vitamin C  Last but not least, BIG UP YOURSELF!

Mantra – Dubamine
