Ganjaology has a special release coming up on April 20th! Callisto’s highly anticipated EP, Dulcimer Dubs, will be dropping at 4:20am on 4/20/15.  Featuring the title track, Dulcimer Dubs, Callisto’s second work, Dynamic Expressions,  and two remixes from Cleveland natives J. Hanna and Self Help, this ep is a great collection of world inspired electronic music.



Bat For Lashes – Daniel (Self Help Remix, The Grown Up Version)

Self Help put out a really nice remix of Bat For Lashes popular indie track, Daniel, a couple years ago.  Apparently it was not quite up par with the sound Self Help is pushing today, so he revamped his remix and put it out for free download via Soundcloud yesterday.  Grab it while you have the chance!  This is another Self Help classic you don’t want to miss out on.

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!

Self Help Crashes All White Lambo Into Ocean But Manages To Save His Epic 23 Min Minimix!

According to a Sea Lion that saw the entire extravaganza go down underwater, Self Help got carried away with the vibes of his brand new 23 minute minimix, forgot he was driving, and launched his brand new 3D Pearl Lambo into an unknown ocean to sink to the bottom of  the water world.  Before his whip was fully submerged Self Help was able to escape through the driver side window, with the minimix clamped between his teeth.  What a guy.

Banditz and Self Help – Spine Waves EP

It is with much pleasure that I proudly announce the release of Ganjaology’s first EP, entitled…

Spine Waves EP

Featuring Ohio’s own dance floor killa – DJ Self Help – along with Orlando’s hottest young dubstep duo – Banditz – this release is sure to put some energy in your spine. Transcending genre labels, the Spine Waves EP is a unique blend of beautifully crafted electronica and bass. The project involved the development of two songs from both production teams which were then traded and remixed. This exciting platform for creation has resulted in a release that is fresh, fun and full of energy. Banditz bring the heavier, bass driven, break your back energy; while Self Help brings the lighter, uplifting, bounce ‘tuh dis vibe. Together the Spine Waves EP is a testament to the magnificent power of co-creation.

The six track EP is available for digital download from the Ganjaology Bandcamp, here. All the funds will be put back into the Ganjaology Project so that we can continue providing you with the best music we can get our hands on. Please help us to do what we love most, creating a platform for CREATIVITY, POSITIVITY, and BASS MUSIC. We appreciate the support!

And now… SPINE WAVE!

PS. When I listen to this album, I get the sense that there is electricity literally flowing through my spine. My face swells, my hands tingle, and my feet get numb. If you’ve had a similar experience with this or any other music, you might be experiencing what is called Kundalini energy. It is the energy that flows up your spine from your base or root chakra. Often this is the sensation we get when something “vibes” with us. If you think you feel me, do some research. Tap into that power. It lives within all of us. Open the door. Expand your mind. Experience Spine Waves.

Department of Eagles – No One Does It Like You (Self Help Ghetto Disco Dub)

When Self Help releases…we write…about everything…!  Ohio’s lead player in the underground bass music scene is stepping up the awesomeness of summertime with his new remix of Department Of Eagle’s song, No One Does It Like You.  What a proper title for this song too.  Why? You might ask?  Well…because no one does it like Self Help.  No One Does It Like You has all the addictive qualities Self Help has been pumping out through speakers world wide over the last couple years.  An unmistakeable bouncy bass line…samples chopped up with the utmost style…and melodic builds and breakdowns that have feet two stepping and percolating in every direction on the dance floor.  All the technical aspects of this remix are great and I could continue to say positive things, but my favorite thing about this track and a lot of the remixes Self Help has done is the fact that the originals are still worth listening to too.  A lot of producers are putting out remixes that sound great…but you wouldn’t be caught dead listening to the original song.  For Self Help that is not the case at all and this leaves him ranked very high up there in my top artists list.  He has a great ear for good, authentic, emotionally moving music, which is reflected by the tunes he chooses to remix and in his versatile, genre-limitless DJ sets.  Self Help’s Ghetto Disco Dub of No One Does It Like You is a free download so be sure to add this one to your library!  Also worth checking out is the video for the original song by Department Of Eagles.  Enjoy!

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!

David Lynch – In Heaven (Self Help)

“In Heaven, everything is fine.  You’ve got your good things…and I’ve got mine…”

Here’s some new Self Help for ya!   This time he’s bringing some unclassifiable awesomeness to your home speakers with a remarkably graceful remix of David Lynch’s, In Heaven, from the movei Eraserhead.  It’s stellar.  Check it out!

Freeze Tag-Tidal Wave (DJ Self Help Remix)

 Here is brand new remix out homie Self Help did for a Cleveland based electronic artist named Freeze-Tag.   Tidal Wave is right up my alley for the beats I’ve been listening to recently.  Not too heavy, not too many words, a nice hard kick/snare/clap combo to keep your feet moving, and yes, it of course has Self Help’s energy oozing out of your speakers and into your heart.  The orginal Tidal Wave is definitely worth checking out too so here is the video for that.  Sexy and smooth.  It’s that simple. Enjoy!

Self Help presents : Clusterfunk part DEUX

Self Help has broken down all barriers of the genre limit often times associated with DJ’s in today’s electronic music scene with his new mix Clusterfunk Part Deux.  Take a listen for yourself. The mixing is incredible and the tracklist leaves me a little dumbfounded at its diverse selection of dj’s from about every corner of the globe.   No matter what type of bass music you crave the most, Clusterfunk Part Deux will fill that void in your life.
