We’ve just hit a million plays on our Soundcloud and to celebrate we have an extra special mix from one of my long time favorite artists – Drumspyder. This gifted musician/producer blessed us with three quarters of an hour of completely original and mind expanding music that hits the soul perfectly whether you’re on the couch or the dance floor.
Drawing inspiration from the music of the old country and fusing it with a deep appreciation for rhythm, drums and organic instrumentation, Drumspyder’s self ascribed “Heathern Tribal Foktronica” is just that – and so much more! A downtempo experience with uplifting vibes this mix defies conventional genre boundaries blending elements from an eclectic cauldron of sonic varieties. His music is a melting pot of sensual soundscapes, intricate percussion, exotic rhythms and a smorgasbord of instrumentals. In fact there’s so many different types of instruments – from didjiridoos to bagpipes – that I couldn’t even keep track! Besides being 100% original the mix also includes a grip of unreleased material as well. The two Liquid Bloom remixes will be out later this spring on Desert Trax and “Black & Gold” will be part of a forthcoming collaboration EP with Seattle vocalist Ilen Halogram. Peep the track list in the Soundcloud description!
Though posted in Berkely CA you can find Drumspyder at Universal Flow Gathering (CA), One Tribe (AB Canada) , and Good Vibe Getdown (AZ) this spring with more dates TBA soon! Enjoy!
