LIB Artist Highlight – Desert Dwellers

With Lighting In A Bottle less than a month away, people from across the globe are gathering their energy and preparing for the journey they will soon be making to Southern California, for one of America’s most unique musical gatherings of the year.  As you’ve probably heard already,  The Do Lab has done an extraordinary job (once again) booking the most original and inspirational artists to bless LIB with the sounds and vibes that participants crave.  One of the groups that I love to see time and time again are the West Coast duo, Desert Dwellers.  Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe have an incredibly unique electronic/world sound that mostly contains a downtempo/glitch-hop vibe, and is composed of live instrumentation, new-age synthesizers, and fat gurgling bass lines.  You’ll surely enjoy this easy listening, positive music.  Make sure you don’t miss their set at Lighting In A Bottle this year!

Self Help Goes To Moombahtown [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Self Help is on fire this year!  Self Help Goes To Moombahtown is his brand new three track EP that consists of remixes of songs by When Saints Go Machine, Busy Signal, and Tennis.  This EP is going to take you on a short musical road trip to Moombahtown where you’ll find nothing but 80 degree days coated in sunshine showers…free 32oz margaritas at every corner…and clubs that bump nothing but moombah vibes out of their front doors at all hours of the day.  Self Help Goes To Moombahtown is particularly cool because of the AWESOME sampling job Self Help conducted in the construction of each of these remixes.  Hearing Self Help’s versions of Parix, Cool It Baby, and Petition, followed up by the originals  lets you see just how unique Self Helps ear is and will give a little glimpse into the mind of the Ohio based artist.  Enjoy this summer energy!

Majora – 2 X 1

I don’t know what happened to the holidays in 2011 but there was a shift of spirit throughout them all.  Now as that may come off as sounding negative, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  Have we been putting too much energy into holidays? So much energy that the holidays don’t meet our expectation of them?  It is possible.  Think about it…what do you want out of your Christmas day?
