Bass Coast 6 MUTINY – Lineup Revealed!!

The Basscoast Mutiny lineup has been revealed, and as expected, it’s stacked with an impressive array of musical talent. For the past three years the Ganjaology team has adventured north into the Canadian wilderness to share in one of the highest vibes parties this side of the Kootenays… and you better believe we’re gearing up for another round!

Year after year the Bass Coast Project continues to amaze, enliven and inspire. Once again, this year The Bass Coast Girls (organizers Andrea Graham and Liz Thomson) have outdone themselves. Performances for this year’s bush session include Addison Groove, Tribe Called Red, Bogl, Cure, D Bridge, Danny Corn, G Jones, J.F. Killah, Kir Mokem, Mat The Alien, Max Ulis, Natasha Kmeto, Nick Wisdom, Philthkids, Self Evident, Sweater Beats, Tank Gyal, Librarian, and Yan Zombie among others!! We’ve listed music from many of the musicians below.

Listen to the sounds and imagine yourself in the forest, the beats filling your auditory field. Notice how you feel as these frequencies are filtered through your receiving centers. Are you inspired? Does the music make you move, make you bow your head and hum… Do these sounds suggest to you love or lust, laughter or longing? Are you sick with excitement?

Whatever the case, our physicians here at Ganjaology Institute prescribe one fat dose of BC trees combined with all manner of creation from raw to refined (super pun here, please smirk responsibly). Coincidentally you can get all this at Bass Coast. Do your body a favor and get up to Merritt, BC this August for Bass Coast 6 Mutiny!

Circula – Deep Data

Ganjaology, Circula

At times I find myself overwhelmed with all the swirling symbols that seem to dictate the movement of the world around me. This language, these numbers. The repetition of bass followed by snare, followed by bass, and again followed by a snare until ultimately it breaks with a crash!

It’s times like these that I find myself immersing in sound. There is great power listening. This ability to find freedom and relaxation through meditating with music has become an important part of my life, and I feel that those reading will probably agree.

The sample that UK soundsystem music creator Circula uses on this track speaks directly to this point. The infamous MF Doom can be heard saying…

You can hear it when you meditate in deep data… It’s the BEAT!

This beat is the rhythm of the universe. It’s the heart, the brain, and the breath. It’s what drives us to collect and create. This beat is the data with which we imagine. We are all attracted to rhythm in one form or fashion. We only differ in how we choose to tune our dials.

After you listen to Deep Data, check out the other tunes from Circula. This is easily some of the headiest garage / 2 step / techno (or whatever you want to call it) that I’ve heard.

Turn up and tune in!

This UK native Circula aka Alfie Brooks resides in limbo between Berlin and Totnes. His loyalties lie with GroundVibes Collective. Check them out here.

The Trailer TV #16 – Alphabets Heaven, Circle Traps, Stanky

Ganjaology, Trailer TV

Do you ever feel like the tunes you want to hear just aren’t being played at any clubs in your area? Tired of wishing you were living in London so that you can really get down to the fascinating sounds of the UK bass culture!? Well now is your opportunity to tune in from your home, car or mobile device. No need for expensive flights, long layovers or mind bending jet lag. All you need is an internet connection… and the super special link below!

Tune in tomorrow for a special online radio feature presentation of some of the sexiest music being offered this side of Neptune. Our friends at The Trailer TV will be hosting an awesome lineup of DJs and live audio production engineers which will send their sounds out over the inter-frequencies, just for your ears.

We’ll hear performances from Alphabets Heaven (King Deluxe, Cleaning Tapes), Circle Traps LIVE (Five Easy Pieces), Stanky LIVE (Shades), and the Trailer TV resident R: Phodee. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to listen live to some of the most progressive electronic bass music available right now.

It goes down tomorrow, Thur Nov 14, 2013 3:30-7:00 EST

…that’s 12:30-4:00 for all you West Coasters!

More info about the event, the lineup, and the organizers of TTV here.

Here’s the link to listen: TUNE IN!

Films by Maxim Sullivan…

I found this music video while researching a tune that has been playing over and over in my head since Om Unit’s set at Bass Coast. The tune – I’m a Creator – is an insanely fresh collaboration between UK bass producer and lyricist Dub Phizix and Skittles. I was impressed by the film, so I decided to look further.

What I found is that the creator of the music video happens to be one of the most impressive moving graphics designers I’ve seen, and further is funny as shit. Check out a few more films by Maxim Sullivan below, and be sure to share the love. Big up Maxim!

Video Remix of the Creator tune… Pretty dope right there. Love the Exit Records splash!

Check this one by Sullivan as well and be prepared to laugh.

Oh my gosh… This guy is funny. Hit play.

DJ Spookz – Turntabla (Morcee Remix)

Here’s a fresh one from London, UK producer Morcee. With an obvious nod to early 90s UK Funky Garage sound, Morcee brings a futuristic twist to this movin’ selection. With a distinct staccato drum pattern, overlaid with half jungle, half spacey synths, along with a sinister synth line; this track rides. Be sure to check out more of Morcee’s tracks here.

 

Peaman – IDK (Kahn Remix)

Please excuse my language here but this track is off the fucking chain! Bristol Dubstep creator Kahn is showing his true colors with this remix of Peaman’s ‘IDK’. The sample makes the song but the addition of Kahn’s oh so smooth drums takes the track to a whole new level. I wish so badly that this was available so I could drop it at my gig tonight. It would fit so perfectly with the Ladies Night theme. Check back for more info about this release soon!
