Summer is in full swing and herb enthusiasts around the world are preparing for a bountiful harvest season. With an exciting turn of events occurring in Washington this year related to cannabis legalization, we’re in for one of the biggest and most burgeoning Seattle Hempfest events yet. Coming up this weekend along the Seattle waterfront at Myrtle Edwards Park, Hempfest is the world’s largest event advocating cannabis exploration, use and legalization. Basically, if you’re into all things herb… HEMPFEST IS THE JOINT!
Our good friends over at Bassdrop Music have procured an awesome stage equipped with stellar sound and an exciting lineup of local electronic acts, plus a handful of guest speakers. We’re lucky enough to have been invited to showcase our skills and represent Ganjaology with a sunset set at the Bassdrop Village stage on Sunday August 17th. Be sure to show up early in the day to catch all the exciting activities Hempfest has to offer, but don’t forget to come kick it with DJs Man.Amen and Callisto of Ganjaology as we close out the festival starting at 6:30pm on Sunday. Peep the full three-day lineup below and be sure to check out some of the smokin’est acts performing at Hempfest on the Bassdrop Village stage!

Bassdrop Music and Neumo’s Presents – Ott & The All Seeing I with KiloWatt and HZ Donut [2/21/13 at Neumos]
This Thursday in Seattle, Bassdrop Music has a very special evening planned indeed. UK sound sorcerer Ott along with his band, The All Seeing I will be gracing the stage at Neumo’s. With support by HZ Donut of Seattle and KiloWatts of Philadelphia this will be an exciting display of progressive electronic music!
It’s not every day that performing electronic musicians bring with them to the stage a full band. Ott is certainly an exception. Maybe in more ways than this. With more than 10 years of production under his belt, this purveyor of hypnotic rhythms and psychedelic sound is making his way round the world to share his music. Still in touch with early dub influences like Scientist, King Tubby, LKJ, and Prince Far-I, Ott has continued in their legacy to produce the leading edge of electronic dub music today. This is not a show to miss.
SEE YOU THURSDAY!
And here’s a word from the Ott himself…
Seriously stunning production on these.
Big up to Seattle’s own HZ Donut for his work in the music scene up this way. Here’s a mix he’s done to get ready for Spring!
Ok, KilloWatts. Wow, this guy is on top of his game right now. From his roots in Texas to his home in Philadelphia to his international collaborations, the man called KiloWatts has some high voltage sounds in his pack. Come prepared for a storm. It might not be the work of of Zeus, but Seattle is certainly going to see some electricity and feel that thunder…
Yup, you know what I mean.
Ps. THANKS BASSDROP
