124-whomp4
123: Whomp Massive 4 : Vapor Dreams & Molecular Modifcations
Mixed by DJ Playaduster at 4th Korner Soundsystems, January 2013

Another installment in the celebrated Whomp Massive series--inspired low-end collages for your personal Bass Chakra Therapy practice. This one starts slow and languid, taking its time before Nico Luminous starts getting rowdy with "Swamp Gate" and we achieve Whomp Massive lift-off at precisely minute 17:46. The rest is bass gravy……



Tracklist:
Gladkill "Distance > Don't Say No"
sAuce + SIMPLETON + Dub.Buddha "Sleepytime "
Nicoluminous "Swamp Gate"
GRiZ "Vision of Happiness"
ChrisB. "Tripping in the Key of Balls"
Gladkill "Beyond Me"
The Candyman "Molecular Modifications"
NiT GriT "Dimethyltryptamine"
Guttstar "Vapors"
Whitebear "Fever Dreams"
The Polish Ambassador "Future, Sex, Computers" medley (Sugarpill / Gladkill / Stephen Jacobs remixes)
Mus Sik "Eternal Smile"
Kaminanda "Time Travellers"
ChrisB. "Eye in the Sky > Triangular Objects"
Gramatik "Bluestep"
Michael Menert "Eventide" (edit)

ps. one of my most vivid, blissful memories of Burning Man 2012 was swinging freely on an oversized swing set behind the DJ stand at False Prophet's annual Tuesday Night party on the Esplanade. The sense of weightlessness, the backdrop of innumerable stars against the inky black eternity of sky, the empathic bass and blinky lights and love and dust….After the Polish Ambassador's playa debut, ChrisB took the party to the next level with his confident bass-slinging of daring low-end frequencies to a very supportive crowd of movers & groovers…..perfect!

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"
Kaminanda "
The Portal"
Sugarpill "Bring It Back"
eDIT "Mildew"
Rena Jones "
Open Me Slowly"
Beats Antique "Hero"
Nicholas Jaar "Colomb"
DJ/rupture "
Save from the Flames All That Yet Remains"
Pantha du Prince "Stick To My Side" (Four Tet remix)
Grizmatik "Digital Liberation in Mad Freedom"
GRiZ + Big Gigantic "Power"

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!"

Lost Track of Time



dBMcast #114: Lost Track of Time (320 kbps)
Mixed by
DJ Playaduster, October 2012

More often than not, DJ Playaduster's dBMcasts choose a musical genre and explore the various electronic permutations of that vibe over an hour-and-a-half. In this new mix, the genres are blended, one flowing in to the next, an undulating river of blending sounds and spirits. This is a sonic exploration that goes off the map, a journey through progressive grooves and forward-leaning beats: Bass Chakra Therapy alongside deep house, Gypsy whomp vs. ambient spacestep, fractured glitchhop rubbing up against pop music remixes. Playaduster was guided by intuition on this excursion and the results are exquisitely interesting, both for a headphones chill-out session or a dance floor adventure.

We might also note that at the heart of this mix is a long cut from Pachanga Boys entitled "Time" — a bit of an unusual choice for DJ Playaduster. This was the beat that Robot Heart
often played to meet and greet the first rays of the rising sun out on the playa, so it is packed with meaning and memory for many of us RH junkies at Burning Man 2012!



Other artists include Flying Lotus * Ricardo Villalobos * Nico Luminouos * Jupit3r * SBTRKT * Radiohead * Four Tet * The Polish Ambassador * Sugarpill * Nicholas Jaar * GRiZ * Beats Antique * Filastine * JoBOT //

What the Mixtape?! (Side Two)



Greetings friends near and far, met and unmet, DJ Playaduster here representing Destination Burning Man with Side Two of What the Mixtape?!

Get yourself ready for a hour long mix of electronic music based on DJs and producers who played at
What the Festival?! in Oregon the last weekend of July 2012. This was the best festival my PNW Get Found crew and I have ever experienced off the playa and the rush of inspiration we felt in the White River canyon has carried over in to this 2 side music mix tape project. From the environment to the art to the people to the lighting to the vibes to the splash pool and ESPECIALLY to the expertly curated schedule of to-notch DJs, the organizers did it right. We can't thank them enough for all the special touches, large and small.

We're going to explore some of the more experimental bass frequencies that What the Festival offered, including Sepalcure, Scuba and Sinjin Hawke, taste some acid crunk from Low Ryderz, get soothed with a long set from Emancipator and dabble in some forward-leaning low-end wavelengths from Gladkill, Bluetech, PhuturePrimitive and Sugarpill.

What the Mixtape?! (Side One)



I’m just back from the first-ever What the Festival?! in the White River Canyon of Oregon and am so incredibly inspired by what went down there: an eclectic roster of top-shelf DJ talent dropping their jams through Function One soundsystems, the gorgeous landscape accentuated by art and light installations, lots of chill spaces full of kind and creative people, good food, minimal security and hilarious pool parties during the heat of the day – I can’t say enough good things about this gathering and the team that put it on. Big ups to the Zanzibar crew for pulling this off so flawlessly, and to my own Get Found family for representing the love.




Side one of What the Mixxtape?! features some of the artists I saw and danced my ass off to, with a focus on the glitch-hop, dubstep, acid crunk, whomp and other soundz from the heavier end of the Bass Chakra spectrum, including Bonobo, Beats Antique, GRiZ, Gladkill, Ana Sia, MartyParty, Sugarpill, EPROM and Paper Diamond. Next week I’ll put out Side 2 with sounds trending house, ambient, experimental and sacred bass.

With 29 days until the Man burns, fevered excitement is in the air. I hope this What the Mixxtape?!, along with other recent episodes like
Desert Dreamers and Shimmer, provide you the ultimate soundtrack for your playa preparations.

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.

Rites of Passage: Pathways to the Portal



What does the theme Rites of Passage mean to you? Is Burning Man just a big party in the desert? These questions spark the insights and musings of Get Found 3.0 campers as we envision it, manifest it, build it, paint it, pimp it out, feel it, struggle with it, open to it, let go of it and offer it as a gift to all.

The soundtrack for this lucid stream of consciousness is a mid-to-downtempo mix of music from Mimosa, Bassnectar, Eliot Lipp, Burial, Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Pretty Lights, Marty Party, Ooah, Emancipator, Jamie Woon, Russ Liquid Sound and Tycho.

We will pass through the Portal in 6 days! We invite our fellow Burners who will be on the playa this year to visit us at 8-8:30 & G-H (approximately…look for our blue and green parachutes, teacup signs on the street corner, or check in at Playa Info) for a cup of tea at the Get Found SyncroniciTEA House & Ju Ju Parlor! You know we'll be playing good music. See you at Home.

The Larry Harvey Dub Experience



Here’s a new mix from DJ Playaduster, with special guest Larry Harvey, founding visionary of Burning Man. The audio is from a recent talk he gave in San Francisco at the Burning Man Regional Convectional Caucus that was recorded and broadcast by Shouting Fire. He is pontificating on the early roots of Burning Man, some of the principles Burners adhere to, and ways in which the Black Rock City culture is spreading out in to the default world in surprising ways.

The music is a mix of style from whomp to dubstep, glitch to jazz. Many of the tracks are taken from the Ninja Tune XX compilation. Hopefully this soundscape presents many of the tempos and feelings one would get wandering around Black Rock City at night.



Featuring Amon Tobin (King Cannibal remix) * Andreya Triani (Mala remix) * Bonobo (Floating Points remix) * Anti-Pop Consortium (Four Tet remix) * Thom Yorke + Four Tet + Burial * Wolf + Lamb * The Bug * Coldcut * "White Rabbit" dubstep remix * R/D * MiMosa * Pretty Lights * Vibesquad * Eskmo (Lorn remix) * Burial * Radiohead * Dorian Concept * Jazz Jagist (Grasscut remix)

I am a Lazer : Bassnectar Maxxximum



Here's a mad mixxx I made of favorite Bassnectar cuts, from brand new to older classics: "the perverse and the bestial vs the gorgeous and the angelic." It features tracks from most of his albums, plus some remixes by other DJs, all mixed up with clips from an interview with Lorin I found on the internets.

Enjoy the spiritual pulsations of thick, liquid bass, the deconstructed, freeky beats and ethereal soundscapes -- may it help you and your personal
Bass Chakra Therapy work progress. Can't wait to hear the new Timewarp bizness on the playa, stomping with the tribe in the dust -- bring it, Lorin, BRING IT!

Whompadelic * Bass Chakra Therapy (Intermediate)



Another Bass Chakra Thearpy session from DJ Playaduster -- this time an intermediate level mix for those who have already absorbed the teachings found within the first introductory BCT session.

Vocals woven in to this session include soundstick recordings from the Halloween/Spiderball experience in San Francisco, the Get Found reunion at the Samish Island Zendo and the night Team Love danced all night in puddles to DJs on the top of the old Rainier Brewery in Seattle. This episode, in other words, tracks the post-playa adventures of our furry, fuzzy family up and down the Pacific Coast in the waning months of 2009.



Soundtrack by Lux, Nosaj Thing, An-ten-ae, Tipper, Lotus Drops, Vibesquad, ill.gates, Mihkal and Eskmo.

Bass Chakra Therapy (Introductory)



This mix is an overview of the electronik sounds I am currently filling my head with, including several DJs I learned about for the first time at Burning Man 2009. Heavy San Francisco emphasis here, naturally, as that is where my favorite grooves are coming from these days. Special guests include Maketa, Scotty G. and Suga Cubed, recorded both in Black Rock City and on the road to home post-Burn, decompressing and reorienting from the Best Burn Ever. This is one of my favorite mixes I've ever spun out -- I really dig the flow between tracks and between sections and the sacred womp of the bass is cleansing to my soul. Hope you dig it too.

xo, DJ Playaduster

Random Rab : Synchromystic



Last weekend I flew from Bellingham to San Francisco to take part in the many Halloween festivities in that fair & freaky city, as well as to reunite with approx. 1/3 of my playa family from Get Found. In addition to a boozy tour of the city on the Transported DJ-funbus, great meals and sock shopping on Haight Street, napping in the Panhandle and a stellar post-Halloween daytime renegade party at Toxic Beach hosted by Brass Tax, a highlight of the trip was certainly the Spiderball on Halloween night proper. It was held at the Bentley Reserve downtown -- an amazing space that used to be a federal treausry builing or something, all decked out in psychedliec Halloween vibes including a giant spider, zombie cheerleaders, Butoh performers, aerialists, bars, beds and couches, and much more -- and was obviously a gathering of mostly-local Burners, taking costumage to the next level, as we're known to do.

Music was provided by
Beats Antique, Vibesquad and Random Rab -- three DJs I spent an inordinate amount of time listening to these days. Each performer brought a different vibe to the dancefloor and the party, with Beats being the most raucous and rowdy, Vibesquad bringing the heaviest, most focused bass and slamming beats, and Rab kinda chillin' the place back down with his 2-4 am set. It inspired me to post this here set of Rab spinning last spring in Seattle, around the time he released his excellent album aRose. Dig it!

Here's a video I shot of Rab and the Spiderball dancefloor around 3 in the morning -- apologies for the horrid sound:




Now I'm starting to think about the next Bay Area Burner throwdown, the Sea of Dreams ball on New Year's Eve, with Bassnectar, Rab, An-ten-ae, Glitch Mob, MartyParty, etc. How can I resist?!?! I cannot.more…?
