Nocturnal Research: Bass Medicine 6



dBMcast #178: NOCTURNAL RESEARCH ~ Bass Medicine 6
mixed by DJ Playaduster for Destination Burning Man.com and Sacred Bass.org in eager anticipation of the Oregon Eclipse gathering
///

the journey: Erothyme "Parting the Horizon" + Yellowstone thunderstorm & birds / Spoken Bird "Nocturnal Research" (CharlestheFirst Remix) / ill.gates "Spread Ego"/ Ooah "Lelly" / PANTyRAID "Beba" / Duffrey "Split Reality" feat 2birds / CloZee "Harmony" / Thriftworks "Off the Hill > Vanilla Pea Milker" / TPA "Punjab Shuffle" / Hedflux "Sacralicious" / TPA "Midnight Radio" / emancipator ensemble "Soon It Will Be Cold Enough" /  Mr. Moo "Krunk Temple" (debut! exclusive!) / Dirtwire "Mueve" / Tor "Two Suns" (CloZee remix) / Tor "Days Gone" (emancipator remix) / Bonobo "Samurai" / EurythmY "Innen > Shako" / AtYyA "Fortress Of Light" (Yaima Remix) ///

the low-end vibrations coming off of these songs we're hard to get a handle on, hard to wrangle and get consistent with each other, so some tunes clip, warp, get fuzzy...hang in there and learn to appreciate life's imperfections :)

DURGA DUB: gopi danceparty (Bhakti Bass 5)

158-Durga-Dub

BHAKTI BASS V // Mixed by DJ Playaduster // Winter 2014
The fourth in our popular series of mixes inspired by sacred Hindu deities and energies, with devotions, yoga, dance, chanting, bliss and singing praises blended with sacred bass vibrations ...

Goddess Durga is the mother of the universe and symbolizes the divine forces known as shakti (feminine energy/ power) that is used against the negative forces of evil and wickedness. She protects her devotees from evil powers and safeguards them. It is believed that Goddess Durga is the combined form of powers of Goddesses Lakshmi, Kali and Saraswati, created by Lord Vishnu as a warrior goddess to protect good people (devas). She represents the power of the Supreme Being that preserves moral order and righteousness in the creation. Durga, also called Divine Shakti, protects humankind from evil and misery by destroying evil forces (negative energy and vices—arrogance, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, greed and selfishness).

DJ Playaduster channels the divine shakti in this Goddess mix, the fifth installment of the Bhakti Bass series. There is A LOT to LOVE in this latest
musical puja from P’duster, from soul-whomping root chakra low-end pulses designed for Bass Chakra Therapy to Kirtan hip-hop to devotional dub to simple, unadorned mantras. Every track here is interwoven with the feminine touch in some way or another: female singers, musicians and producers, muses and spirits lead the way in this offering to the Goddess.



track list: // Lux Moderna "Adi Mantra" / Eukarya "A Mid Night's Wind" /Kalya Scintilla "TribeOriginal" wiith Deya Dova + "Osiris" / Beatfarmer "Shanti” / Ananda Rasa and The Sanga Crew "Shri Ram Jay Ram" (Srikalogy remix) / Akasha "Sky Lines" / Living Light "Perihelion" / Srikalogy "Together" (with Malia Kulp) / Halo Refuser "Soul Searching" / Eccodek "Silent Song" (EarthRise Soundsystem remix) / Ayla Nero "From the Ground Up" Srikalogy remix) / Soulacybin "Surrealendipitous" / Deva Premal "Om Purnam Mantra" / Srikalogy "Hare Krishna" (KulaHeadz remix) / Jai Uttal + Shiva Rea "Invocation" / Wah "Sita Ram" (Srikalogy remix) / DJ Drez "Sugar Drop 77) / Eccodek "My Primitive Heart" (with MC Yogi) \\

Dedicated to my summer gopi loves:
Ciana, Kanti Devi, Rey Rey, Em, Leah, Melissa, Whitney, Coutney, Jessi, Leah, Chloe...maybe you too? ;)

KRSHNA DUB: low-end devotions (Bhakti Bass IV)

153-krshna_opt (1)

Bhakti Bass IV: Mixed by Kaya Rainface * August/September 2014
The fourth in our popular series of mixes inspired by sacred Hindu deities and energies, with devotions, yoga, dance, chanting and singing praises set as the intentions ...

Like India herself, this mix is a vibrant, sensory-overloading mashup of different styles, from down n dirty bass to effervescent ambience, transcendent mantra chanting to gritty hip-hop rhymes. KRSHNA DUB is packed full of new music I've discovered this summer traveling to NW festies like Luminosity, Wanderlust and Beloved, and I'm loving exploring the fusion of sacred music with beats and bass from the dancefloor. I hope this music transports you (headphones strongly recommended!), inspires your own practice of devotion and prayer, and I give thanks and praise to all the visionary musicians, DJs and producers making this world a more beautiful place with the gift of their artistic vision. Namaste!



track list: Beatfarmer "Solace" / Sol Rising "Shri Ram Jai Ram" / DJ Drez "Royal Krishna" / Kirtaniyas "Krishna Govinda" feat Jai Uttal (DJ Drez remix) / Shaman's Dream "Istanbul Dubphonics" (Drumspyder remix) / Drumspyder "Ingwaz" / Skytree "Ganesha" / Biolumigen "Parasamgate" / David Starfire "Soma Dreams" / RORSCHACK "Allah!" / Astarius "Spirit Rap" + Anna (solo violin live from "Sonic Mediation Hike", Wanderlust Whistler July 2014) / The Polish Ambassador "Sri Gurvastakam" (ft. Kirtaniyas" / MC Yogi "Bhakti Beatbox" > "Krishna Dub" > "Ganesh is Fresh" / C.C. White "Hari Bo" (Live at Beloved 2014) / Kirtan Soul Revival Ft. Srikalogy & Luminahdi "Jaya Bolo Ram" (Srikalogy Remix) / Earthrise Soundsystem "Metaphysical Fitness" (feat. Srikalogy & Luminadi) / James Boag & Friends "Shanti OM" / DJ Drez "Nectar Drop"

Skytree * Sonic Blossom Live Mix + Artist Profile ** EXCLUSIVO!

Skytree_Jason_Carncross_600_2827_Sonic_Blossom_Vol_1

Evan Snyder, aka Skytree, is a DJ / producer based in New York. He has been making electronic compositions for a decade, releasing nine albums including Knotwork, Wilder Forest, Windings of the Dragon Track, Sacred Singularity and a compilation of his music remixed by friends and fellow producers entitled Treemixes Volume One. Skytree's sound resists definition, as it blends together found sounds from urban and nature soundscapes, ethereal vocals, percussion and live instrumentation, dark synths and layers upon layers of winding, warping, luscious, low-end bass vibrations. His peers include other Sacred Bass purveyors including Kalya Scintilla, Kaminanda, Soulacybin, Erothyme, Space Jesus, Shwex, Whitebear, PhuturePrimitive, Aligning Minds and other visionary sound shamans who carefully craft bass music full of momentum, magic, mystery and intention.

His profile is on the rise as he has been playing a variety of transformational festivals and shows around the country, including Gratifly, Prism, Stilldream, 3DL, Autumnal Equinox at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, Surreal and tour support for The Polish Ambassador, Kaminanda and others.

Last October, Skytree played a genre-defining set at Sonic Blossom at Cervantes in Denver, Colorado.
Sacred Bass Sessions and Destination Burning Man are stoked to present an exclusive remixed and remastered version of the show, which includes a look ahead to his forthcoming 2014 release, Cirrus Sapiens. Inspired and intrigued by Evan's unique and moving sound, as well as the ideas and ethos that he broadcasts via his active social media presence, we engaged him in a lengthy interview to find out more about what is happening behind the music.

Enjoy the galaktivated ride bass space fans!

Sacred Bass Sessions: Who were some of your musical influences growing up, and what’s something about your musical background that most people might not know about you?

Skytree: Since I was young I’ve listened to a pretty wide range of stuff and had influences from a lot of genres, many of which I’ve incorporated into my music at different times. In one of our emails you asked about Jazz, folk music, and Led Zeppelin, which was funny because I love all three. When I was little we used to listen to a pretty eclectic range of stuff on long road trips, or on my dad’s turntable by the fire. Sometimes it would be classic country western (I’m talking dusty old time cowboy music), other times it’d be New Age ambient meditation albums, Motown or progressive psychedelic Celtic folk rock. Electronic and atmospheric sounds were always my favorite though. In my teens I really got into industrial, drum and bass, IDM, dub, and 90’s breakbeat.

Something I haven’t mentioned in past interviews is that I really loved singing from an early age (in addition to banging around on pots and pans). I was really active in choir during middle school and high school, as well as several musicals, and did pretty well quite a few times at state competitions, that kind of thing. The only trouble is that I’m not particularly good at it now to be honest! I haven’t practiced in ages, outside of doing aums at my shows, chanting or singing ridiculous songs in the morning. So, I’m kinda intimidated by putting my voice back into my music. I have a few times, but it’s been looped and warped to make it more of an abstract expression. Using my own vocals again regularly is something that has to happen at just the right time and way.

skytree-NES

SBS: What kind of films have had the greatest impact on you? What cultural leaders have influenced your thinking, from a childhood or adult perspective?

Skytree: This probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone, but 80’s kids fantasy/sci-fi movies like the Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, the NeverEnding Story and the Explorers were a huge influence when I was a kid. Star Wars is of course pretty high up there as well. I’ve always loved movies that portray a dark strangeness in surreal beauty, using models and puppets over CGI…this aesthetic preference influences my music quite a bit actually.

Sacred Bass Sessions Vol 1 : Beyond the Dream Dome (for Sabbahji)

SacredB_3


dBMcast #136: Sacred Bass Sessions Vol. 1 : Beyond the Dream Dome (for Sabbahji)
Mixes by Kaya Rainface at the Purple Palace, November 2013

Destination Burning Man is excited to introduce
The Sacred Bass Sessions, a new series of intentional gatherings in Bellingham / Cascadia. Produced in partnership with Boogie Universal, these sessions are envisioned to be a series of transformational gatherings based around electronic music, community engagement and freedom of expression.

This musical mix by Kaya Rainface is a soundtrack for our vision of Sacred Bass Sessions, like a mission statement, or a map to the subconscious nooks and crannies of your mind. It features music from the West Coast's finest DJs, producers and sound shamans, artists we either have already booked to play an upcoming SBS or are actively pursuing. The low-end mystical flow is deeply inspired by Rainface's time spent in the DreamDome at Photosynthesis 6 this past summer.
Just before releasing this mix, we synthesized a spur-of-the-moment tribute to Cheb i Sabbah at the conclusion of the audio journey, in honor of his passing on November 7. As we listened to this mix that evening, we could clearly hear Sabbahji's influence in every track, his musical legacy informing the current crop of Sacred Bass DJs who carry forward his global-galactic grooves for the next leg of the journey.



track list // itom lab "Galactic Mantra" + The Bells of Sh'ang Sh'ung / Subaqueous "Invoking (eO remix) > In Spire > Cryptic (Michael Manahan remix) / Osiris "Immersion > Soul Diver" / Drumspyder "Caduceus" / itom lab "Brahmin" / Plantrae "Primary Decomposers" / GUDA "Riparian Toadschool" / eO "Lilt" / Kyrstyn Pixton "Dolphin's Pipe" / Cheb i Sabbah "Durga Puja" (Rainface Redub) / eO "Sussurus" / Bass Chakra Therapy outro //

Bass Harvest: Fresh Frequencies for Fall

134-Bass-Harvest

dBMcast #134 : Bass Harvest: Fresh Frequencies for Fall
DJ Playaduster Live from the Purple Palace, 10/3/13

Here's a hot-off-the-griddle dBMcast that blends together many of today's finest, fattest, freshest forward-leanin' tracks from the purveyors of Bass Love. These cuts are the latest of the latest, wildharvested hither & thither here at the end of summer by DJ Playaduster. He's able to tour the listener through a wide range of cutting-edge low-end whomp in a short span of time, his sonic processing skills honed by extensive Bass Chakra Therapy practice at transformational festivals around the Pacific Northwest this summer. The Symbiosis Gathering, in particular, expanded his musical horizons and inspired him to dig deeper in his ongoing bass investigations, and several of the performers he caught on lakeside stages over that weekend have worked their way in to the fabric of this exploration.

track list // James Blake "Holy Ghost" intro.... / saQi + The Polish Ambassador "Jarro" / Ott "Baby Robot" / Random Rab "Release"/ Sidecar Tommy "Vortex" / JUPIT3R "1226" / GRiZ "Heartbeat" / Phaeleh "Make You Feel" / ODESZA "Keep Her Close" / Break Science "Now You Want More"/ James Blake "Life Round Here" (saQi remix) / Laura Mvula "She" (Shlomo remix) / Claude VonStroke "The Bridge" / Nico Luminous "When I See You Shine"/ Blackstreet "No Diggety" (TPA remix) / Wildlight "Live Inside a Dream" (saQi remix) / saQi "Your Last Breath" / ODESZA "If There's Time" / Nightmares on Wax "Om Sweet H(Om)e / Shpongle "Tickling the Amygdala" / Timonkey "Sooner or Later" \\

This summer we tried something different and passed on Burning Man in exchange for a variety of different transformational festivals / electromusikfests / tribal bass gatherings in Washington and Oregon, choosing to disperse our time, attention and resources over several different fests instead of the Grandaddy of them all. The results were extremely positive, which sets up a hard decision that will need to be made sometime next year when scoping the next summer. This mix represents some of what we learned out there in the woods: the music we absorbed, dancefloor community we joined, freedom we cultivated and bliss we tasted.

Our Deep Listening, usually under enhanced circumstances, of artists like Grammatik, Russ Liquid, Pumpkin, Plantrae, Shpongle, Kalya Scintilla, Odesza, STS9, The Polish Ambassador, Emancipator, Sun:Monx, Dirtwire, Thriftworks, Freq Nasty, saQi, Phaeleh, Lotus, Sidecar Tommy, Jupit3r, Sugarpill, An-ten-ae — all in the space of a few moons, many for the first time ever — it really took our understanding and appreciation of Bass Chakra Therapy to a richer place, more free, more flowing, more abstract and psychedelic yet rooted down than ever before.

Huge gratitude to the Dream Dome on the edge of the Pacific Ocean at Photosynthesis, the upper "Clamshell" with a wicked Mt. Hood view at What the Festival?!, the late-night tent at Summer Meltdown next to the wild river and glacial-clad peaks and, with an extra-deep bow, all places at all times for Symbiosis Gathering. I learned so much from you and will continue to work on incorporating the best parts in to my day-to-day tenure on Planet Earth. To all the beautiful peoples from all over the world I met around campfires, on the beach, in front of the subwoofers, stage left, stage right, in the woods or on the road: Namaste.
The light inside me recognizes the light inside you. Dance on!

Jedi Teahouse

131-jedi-teahouse

dBMcast #131: Jedi Teahouse
Mixed by DJ Playaduster + Kaya Rainface, March-April 2013

Dark, brooding, mystical, epic, cinematic and full of coiled power ready to strike at a moment's notice: this is the sound of the Jedis, gathering together in a dimly-lit teahouse at the crossroads of two trails in the forest. Taking pause, in the candlelight they share stories of their adventures, make connections, trade secrets, hone their craft. Some are just in from a mission from the coast, others heading off towards the desert for the Great Convergence. For a spell, they can rest, revive and relax while sipping steaming cups of tea served by the mysterious tea master….

The soundtrack for the Jedi Teahouse is a result of a tag-team effort by DJs Playaduster and Kaya Rainface. PD sets the proceedings off with a smoldering blending of dubstep+ambient+chill to set things up proper and Kaya Rainface steps in around minute 28 for a rugged Sacred Bass pilgrimage to the Temple of Wobble. The vibes get deeper and darker past the 1 hour mark; experts only, please. Tread carefully and mind the Jedis.

By the conclusion of our tea session, the two DJs have melded their scents and sensibilities in to the One Groove. Bass Chakra Therapy at its finest. Vintage Jedi that even Master Yoda would approve of, humping it to the dance floor with his gnarled staff and riddles….



Track list // R.O. "Wood" / Shlomo "Out of Hand" / lokae "Siphon in the Sky" / Shipwrek "Bloom > Tangerines" / lokae "Slow Burn" / Russ Liquid "Formidable Signs > Furbish" / Mr. Squatch "The Squatch Expands Life" / Mumukshu "Wakefulness"/ Shwex "Forever Shining Soul" / Andreilien "Tafoni" / Whitebear "Auric Sight" / SIXIS "Cyclic Time" / Biolumigen "Akuna Marana" / Kalya Scintilla The Hathors" / The Polish Ambassador "Invisible Frontiers" / Sugarpill "You Got" / Mystral "Afterglow" / Shpongle "Tickling the Amygdala"

Photosynthesis : Into the Dream Dome

photosynthesis-dreamdome

dBMcast#129: Photosynthesis : Into the Dream Dome
Mixed by Kaya Rainface, August 2013
 
Here's some Jedi Goddess Ninja Healer Mermaid Wizard music, inspired by the Photosynthesis Festival held at Hobuck Beach in the far northwestern corner of Washington State July 19-21, 2013 and mixed up by Kaya Rainface for Destination Burning Man. This set evokes the sacred bass celebrations held in the Dream Dome, tapping in to dream states, dream flights, subconscious massages & third eye galaktivations, a space where fantasies morph in to altered realities….let this musical sacrament take you to the places where you access your subliminal sides & express your secret powers!


Jon Hopkins "Sun Harmonics"
Subaqueous "Invoking"
Kaminanda "Liquid Sunrise"
Plantrae "Taiga Bloom"
Drumpyder remixes "Shiva Ntaraj > Bodhi Mandala" (Desert Dwellers)
Aligning Minds "In the Wake of Forever"
Osiris "Immersion > Sole Diver"
Kalpatura Tree "Naked Soul Dub"
Kalya Scintilla "From Day to Night and Back Again"
Elephant Revival "The Raven Song"
Russ Liquid "New Beginnings"

Photosynthesis began with a ritual. An elder from the Makah tribe—we were holding our gathering on their tribal lands, at their invitation—said prayers in his native tongue and then blessed the ground we would dance upon all weekend by sprinkling white puffs of eagle down from his medicine bag. It was an offering that galaktivated the Dream Dome. The line-up of DJs—combined with the visionary artists, VJs, tea servers, dancers and many wild, organic shrines—created a deep vibe that persisted over three long nights of ritual and dancing. The swollen moon waxed in the heavens above, ravens and eagles flew overhead and the hypnotic roar of the Pacific Ocean backdropped everything.

Photosyn-3
Plantrae playing violin and dropping botanical beats in the Dream Dome


In this mix, Jon Hopkins gives the opening invocation with "Sun Harmonics," appropriate for Photosynthesizers beneath a grey blanket of sea fog and salty mist. The rest of the artists contribute to the musical journey in more or less the order they performed in the Dream Dome over the weekend: amazing contributions from (mostly) West Coast/Pacific Northwest producers Subaqueous, Kaminanda, Plantrae, Drumspyder, Aligning Minds, Osiris, Kalpatura Tree and Kalya Scintilla. Elephant Revival shares a closing prayer with "Raven Song" and, as we drift off from the Dream Dome at dawn, the sounds of Russ Liquid coming from the Mandala Dome carry us home to our tents in the trees….

I should note that Hopkins and Elephant Revival did not play at Photosynthesis, but their opening and closing mantras to the mix are in alignment with the Dream Dome vibe and we're happy to have them!

Photosyn-6
Visionary art in the Dream Dome

The vocals are Makah elders speaking in their indigenous language, including a whaling chant. They are incorporated in Kaya Rainface's mix in the spirit of respect for their culture and gratitude for letting us gather to dance, celebrate, commune and heal on their ancestral land. You'll also hear elements of the land: waves crashing, birds calling, winds blowing…it was an overcast and somewhat chilly weekend, though we were spared rain, and the chill brought us closer together around campfires.

Photosyn-7
Kalya Scintilla closes the weekend ritual Sunday night in the Dream Dome


Gratitude. We are grateful to the DJs, artists, dancers, temple builders and festival organizers. See you back at Hobuck next year!

Temple Twilight > Moonjuice Dub

124-templetwilight
dBMcast #124: Temple Twilight > Moonjuice Dub
Mixed by Kaya Rainface + DJ Playaduster from 4th Corner Soundsystems, December 2012

Kaya Rainface starts this playa journey with a 30+ minute mediation on transitionary periods on the playa, not-this and not-that, like twilight out at the Temple. A mediation on Sacred Bass ensues as we slowly lift off from Planet Earth.

Rainface and Playaduster join forces around minute 34 and intertwine their bass DNA to co-create some deep
bass chakra healing vibrations.  

At minute 48, Playaduster steps in to usher in the nighttime wih a propulsive set of headtronic glitch and dust-raising whompstep.

At 1 hour and 10 minutes, they reconvene to bring the journey back home, and tuck it in safely to slumber…..

Threshold (Open Me Slowly)

117-threshold

Mixed by DJ Playaduster, December 2012

Here's one more dBMcast for 2012 and the first to actually feature some of the soundstick recordings captured at Burning Man 2012. dBMcast #117 features Moontroll of Get Found reporting from the road to Gerlach, and from the exciting moment when one's vehicles leaves pavement and hits the playa, and from the line to get in to the city when a whiteout dust storm stopped all movement. Moontroll is geared towards that once-a-year passage through the Portal to the other side, and his excitement is palpable. Ride shotgun with him as he approaches the Threshold to another world of magic and mystery, a journey with an undulating soundtrack of forward-leaning bass music that touches on electroboogie, dubstep, ambient, world beat, breaks and other styles.

As this mix is about thresholds, portals, journeys and crossings, you'll also hear contributions from Terrence McKenna speaking on UFOs and spirit molecules and a science report on recent NASA searches for elusive portals that spontaneously open and close in the Earth's magnetosphere.



Track list:
Break Science "Forest of Illumination"
Elliott Lipp "The Sunset"
Michael Menert "Take All You Want"

Beautiful World



dBMcast #116: Beautiful World
Mixed by
Kaya Rainface, November 2012

Music by The Polish Ambassador * Stephan Jacobs * Gladkill * Emancipator * Sugarpill * Michael Meneirt * SBTRKT * Paper Diamond * Russ Liquid * Andreilien * JoBOT * Bassnectar.

"Its a beautiful world we're livin' in…"



With this simple phrase repeated over and over like a mantra on the title track from Stephan Jacob's new album, DJ Kaya Rainface heard the possibility of a new mix celebrating the ephemeral glory of being alive on Planet Earth here at the end of the Mayan calendar.

"What happens after 12/21/12? Nobody knows! Will our world look different the next morning? Or will the changes all take place inside of us?" Rainface wondered in a recent conversation over steamy oolong tea. "Whatever goes down, 12/21/12 provides all of us a centering of attention, a cosmic quickening, and a chance to refocus our intention. I felt the call to create a mix that celebrated how fortunate we all are to be here, in this place, at this time. Beautiful world for sure!"

Elements that hold this musical journey together include 1.) heavy participation from the
Headtron crew in California, including Sugarpill, Gladkill, Andreilien, Stephan Jacobs, Russ Liquid and JoBOT, 2.) an exploration of tracks that use the human voice in interesting ways: looping, mutating, glitching out, bending and folding and chopping singers' voices until they are barely recognizable as human, becoming instruments instead, disembodied androids offering fractured vespers, and 3.) an interconnected mosaic of midtempo tracks that marry intergalactic space travel, melodic beauty and deep, nutrient-rich bass whompage.

The Beautiful World Choir includes voices from Sade, Jay-Z, Yukimi Nagano, Linval Thompson and the glorious wispy vocals of Thao Nguyen on Emancipator's track "When I Go," which is presented here in a mashup of the original with the Michael Menert remix.

"The Headtron tribe is putting out some of the most interesting bass music happening today. They are way out there on the leading edge of electronic music, creating pretty, emotional music that also slays you with bass" Rainface mused, "I love how they are each distinct artists yet sharing a common aesthetic in making music. Putting them together in a mix made it really easy for me to keep the flow moving forward. It developed very organically. The mix knew what it wanted to be and I just helped facilitate its manifestation!"

Shimmer : Dreamstep for Dubheads


dBMcast #107: Shimmer : Dreamstep for Dubheads
Mixed by DJ Playaduster May-June 2012


With dBMcast #107, DJ Playaduster has woven a sonic tapestry designed to induce dream states and facilitate astral projections. With rumbling bass as our Earthly grounding, we float past nebuli, vortexes and voyaging spacecraft on the wings of violin, percussion, guitar, trumpet and more. If you listen closely, you'll hear Moontroll & Orbit encountering the Temple for the first time at Burning Man 2010.

Have a look around. Smell the colors. Feel the low-end textures massage the tender places in your Bass Chakra. Taste the salty stardust. Relax. Let go….There are no sharp edges or rough transitions here, so you can close your eyes, lay back and take the ride with full trust in the interstellar navigational skills of DJ Playaduster.



Featuring
Liquid Stranger * Pantha du Prince * SexyTime * Sunmonx * Nicoluminous * MartyParty * Ganucheau * Shlomo * Filastine * Kalya Scintilla * GRiZ * Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Bass Meditations



With no more delay I offer 'Bass Meditations' for the dBM massive.  This is the mix formerly known as 'Kung Fu Jedi II'  However since I don't have any yoda or kung fu master vocal samples, I didn't feel it was deserving of that title.  No vocal samples here, just a mix of
sacred bass music

This mix drops into the sacred bass realm and was designed as a soundtrack to your Practice.  Find your flow with Kaminanda, Phuture Primative, Kayla Scintilla, Tipper, Nanda, Thriftworks and The Human Experience.  This mix is a sampling of some of the freshest, most deeply studied bass chakra masters.



Track List:

Kaminanda - 'Conscious Droplets'
Phuture Primative - Center of Gravity
Kaminanda - The Yum Factor
Russ Liquid - VGA
The Human Experience - Entheos
Tipper - Bubble Control > Hourglass Infringment
Thriftworks - Pillow In the Woods > Greenie Beanies
Nanda - Cry of the Ages
Kayla Scintilla - Rises In The East
Kaminanda - Temple of De'Light
Kayla Scintilla - Way of the Tarrot
Phuture Primative - Ripple Effect

Subconscious Shapeshifter Swarm



A subsonic sacred bass exploration with
DJ Playaduster channeling a night at Burning Man. Imagine traveling between several different soundscapes late one night in Black Rock City: your first stop features whomp-fusion, glitch-hop and luscious low-end bass jamz to start the party. But then you wander a couple doors down the Esplanade to discover a camp spinning psychedelic progressive house and you get lost there for what seems like an eternity of booty-shaking. Robot Heart rolls by and draws you deeper out in to the open playa for a serving of dark and dubby disco-trance music. Mmmmmmm, feels so good! Right about the moment you suspect that you are going to turn in to a puddle of goo from dancing to such elastic, nerfy beats, a random art car -- perhaps a golf cart made up as a glowfish, or a pulsating fuzzy UFO -- drives by blaring Hendrix and the rawness and realness of his guitar pulls you back to corporeal form. Out at the trash fence, you stumble upon Tipper spinning an early morning set full of neuron-splintering sounds and feel your DNA literally being reprogrammed…. almost sunrise!

All of these various styles and genre-mutations sound s
o good to your ears -- they move your body hypnotically, swarm your subsconscious with shapeshifters and create an epic night of dancing beneath the broad dome of stars with the beautiful freaks of BRC!



Featuring Kaminanda / David Starfire / Beats Antique / ill.gates / Glitch Mob / R/D / Bassnecter / Osunlande / Tanner Ross / Round Three / Kassem Mosse / Behrouz / Jimi Hendrix (?!?) / Tipper/ more...
