Shiiva is a genre-bending electronic musical duo based in Santa Cruz and Los Angeles. James Slotnick and Zach Morton began collaborating in 2012, laying down heady, bass-laden grooves infused with coastal air and light and show no signs of stopping soon. They hooked us up with this impressive live-tronica mix for our 24th Transmission and we’re excited to get it out to our listeners. Shiiva has a unique sound all their own. By infusing organic instruments like the guitar with forward thinking electronic production techniques these two break down the barriers between genres and create something all their own. From bouncing glitch hop to housey breaks and beyond these two touch on a variety of styles incorporating them all together into this mix as smoothly as silk.
These boys are staying busy with an upcoming show at a private venue called Fern Gully in Bonny Doon this Friday September 14th. People can contact Shiiva directly for details. They also have an upcoming EP slated for an October release, so keep an ear to the ground for that.
