SUBBASS : Ethnostep 8 [SBES8]

“This compilation brings together artists from all over the world –
Grooves `n` Vibes whose roots are found particulary in electronic Bass and World music.
Making music is the most primeval form of human expression. Imbued with a mystical power to communicate at an instinctual level that transcendends language and speaks directly to the soul.
All artists follow a vision and live their dream with the realization of their music that unites us.
Moreover, we do not pursue any commercial interests with this project. It is our interest to spread this beautiful music to this world in which we all live together. – Dance to the rhythms and make the world a better place!”

KUSHT : Didn’t Leave / All My Tears [ynFree 005]

“Once upon a time dj Gammler came around the corner with a hint to this scotch guy in Oslo named KUSHT.
After mental handshake we met on the slowest dancefloor in town and headed up for more.
Here you go with our first affair: a delta of christian spirituals and pop blueprints (your mother would like) by Emmylou Harris – stripped down & reassambled by Buddy aka KUSHT striking for our solid ynFree series at number 5.
Shaky beats, petting melodies & potent grooves.
May the data be with you.”

Maugli : Away / Did You Ever [ynFree 004]

“MAUGLI’s debut hits off with two fresh tracks for our free download series.
The first song „Away“ starts dark with choppy guitar licks, chants and arpeggios, repeating, twirling and pulling you in, drawing you deep into its rhythmic african world.

A warm percussive piece, underlined by deep bass and shaky synths, warping and weaving in and out.
Schweben’s Away,a sample of Merlui Miranda’s ‘Pamé Daworo’, Ogoya Nengo and The Dodo Women’s Group’s ‘Kadana’ have been worked into the track.

‘I bought a Shotgun’ the infamous Screamin’ Jay Hawkins used by
sample trio ‘Den Sorte Skole’, returns to stage.
Based on the pounding guitar pattern of Damon’s song Did You Ever
Maugli kickstarts his second track with a bass and a beat that gets your teeth churning and shakes you to the bone.
With delightful twists and turns the track becomes a catchy
headbanger that is hard to resist.”
