Dub Kirtan All Stars’ brand new Subsonic Devotion EP features 3 tracks produced by David Starfire and FreQ Nasty featuring the powerful and compelling vocals of 2 of the Kirtan scene’s most talented singers – Chaytanya and Arjun Baba. ‘Radhe Govinda’ conjures up images of a Dubstep club in the heart of Mumbai with Chatanya bestowing the spacious track with an emotive invocation of the Divine over heavy beats and bass. On ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ Arjun Baba embodies the ‘take no prisoners’ spirit of Hindu deity Shiva delivering a fiery and unrestrained vocal over the top of razor sharp beats and a distorted 303 acid line. The EP closes with the rapturous voice of Chaytanya on a delicate and moving rendition of ‘Kunja Bihari’. Originally recorded as a shiver-inducing acoustic Bhajan it is augmented here by sparse atmospheric dubs, sweet 70’s funk, and a weighty bottom end sub. After a 2 year gestation period spent developing a full force live band we are ridiculously pleased to offer you the Subsonic Devotion EP. Enjoy!

First i apologize. I admit choosing that title “Con los Terroristas ?” would unsettle some people (and i love it). Have we at GenBass gone infected with that viral or are we going to behave like offended puritans and ask the author of the track to be burnt in public (after maybe a session of stoning).
Second, i do not intend to play smart, but really i wanted to share my feelings about that viral. I do not despise the track, as it is to my opinion one of the best Trap tracks released. So big up to Baaeur and Mad Decent label. In fact what worries me is more the viral thing. The first videos were cool and interesting enough to get us curious about the Harlem Shake. Then most of the following ones have only proven something : most people don’t have talent even when they have fun. But this not my point. What actually struck my mind was that “Con los terroristas”. I do not condemn rebellions or unrest and i definitely fight the idea of assimilating anyone who is opposed to a system to a terrorist. I however think that (blind) violence leads nowhere – except to more violence. I do not think as well that the track is advocating terrorism as an act of violence, but rather as an offence to established rules about music and dance. It’s a kind of “So you think that electronic music should always have a harmonic synth line and well ordered beats ? Listen to that !”
What is disturbing me however is that we live in world which at least since the year 2001 has been divided in two fairly distinct parts : good democracy and bad terrorism. And yesterday as my TV programme was again invaded by a Harlem Shake performed by dumb real TV actors, i was really asking myself : all these people (the French ones for example as it is my country) who actually supported all the speeches about fighting terrorism, driving off the frontier men with long beards praying Allah, bombing Colombian kidnappers, cleaning the streets of Rio from favelas gang members (that soccer thing…) How the fuck can they be all trying themselves on some Harlem Shake ? Because let’s be honest they are the same ones. Have they actually noticed the lyrics ?? Or are they behaving like sheep ? Sorry for insulting these animals that deserve better…
Two things however, in Tunisia students were forbidden to perform a Harlem Shake and two officers from Israeli army were condemned to jail for publishing their video. If all the sheep of the world could at least show some support to these persons…
So let’s move onto something more interesting, that would certainly deserve a lot more of sharing !
… posted something like a week ago this impressive video where you can see him recreating Massive Attack’s Teardropwith vegetables as pads. Cooler than cool. If you guys were looking for a good reason to get vegetarian, now you know !
… always amazing. The melodies swirl around your body like fairy dreamish silk dragons. It’s difficult to think that we listen to electronic music as the sounds reveal intense sensibility. This tiny EP is composed of two originals tracks and three good quality remixes. The original track Mouthis pure electromance.
I couldn’t resist posting about the recent release of Machinedrum‘s remixes. I’m honestly not mad about all of them, but some really reveal his qualities as a composer/remixer. (And they are free to download !) theophilus london ft. jesse boykins iii – cold pillow (machinedrum remix)

Our Sexxy Saturday Cumbia expert El Guero Unico, who is presently putting together an official compilation of the same name for official release under our label, has put together this excellent Cumbia Hip Hop mix comprising of material produced by DJ Neber.
It’s an essential grab for those into this style of Nu Cumbia as it rocks!!!
Here’s what he says:
Over the past couple of years now DJ Neber has released sonic brilliance after sonic brilliance. I collect all of his music as he puts them out. I wanted to promote him further by putting together my own mix of his work. The essentials needed to understand why DJ Neber is so great are included in this mix. I won’t give you a track list. But what I will do is much better!
