Back To The Roots Tour
🕉Kalya Scintilla🕉 (Australia)
Australian Music Producer and Founder of Merkaba Music, Kalya (Ka –lee- yah) Scintilla ( Sin–till –ah) has always had a love for music; playing in garage bands, banging on drum kits, spinning vinyl in the night clubs of Sydney and getting down to funk! Kalya had a knowing one night listening to one of the most profound pieces of visionary music from the legendary Herbie Hancock, that his soul’s mission was to make music his life’s devotion. Soon after this experience he enrolled himself into a two year audio engineering course and eventually left the city to work on music in the country deep into nature. Taking on small part time jobs to get him by, he made his sole focus and time dedicated to honing his craft. He signed on with Zenon records in 2009 putting him on the map inside the psy-trance world with his first project, Merkaba. His second project, Kalya Scintilla made it to the top ten on Addictech charts in the same year and by 2011 he was touring the U.S. west coast. Kalya Scintilla took hold in the United States as dance floors were all a buzz about the masterful style in which Kalya was throwing down squelchy funky grooves that were uniquely deep and hypnotic. In 2012 he began collaborating with artist Eve Olution inside the album Open Ancient Eyes. New elements took root as these two worked in the studio to add detailed nuances to weave the current mythos of our time within the music. This album is the first of three inside a trilogy dedicated to our human journey, this planet, and our connection to creation itself. Today both Kalya Scintilla and Merkaba are renowned throughout almost every continent on the planet and the popularity of both projects are growing as more & more people are connected with the deep seeded intention of every song.
🕉Whitebear🕉 (Melbourne, Australia)
Complex soundscapes turn to glitch, break then flow; psychedelic sound infusions leak straight to the brain. Whitebear has a particular addiction to mangling samples into twisted sounds, coupling and contrasting them with infectious arpeggiations, and finally setting the mood in stone with an earthy, groovy, bass. Of late, an organic, tribal influence is starting to emerge from the glitches, allowing the listener to tune in and vibe out on dance floor, stirring up something familiar and primal within, whilst revealing new environments. The listener is taken on a journey, but free to explore the vast expanse of intangible space between the frequencies and synapses. What happens in that space, in that darkness, is an immersive experience limited only by your own imagination.
🕉Sixis🕉 (Berkeley, CA)
The Sixis project fuses distinct sonic spaces with danceable bass music aesthetics to create a thought provoking and emotive experience. Synthetic and organic elements blur through field recording and electronic synthesis, generating a familiar yet alien trip through the body and out of the imagination. This is done in order to stimulate people to think about what is really going on and what connections can be made beneath the surface, even once they have left the dancefloor. Inspired by the ever changing world around us, this is merely a reflection of what has been and will be experienced.
🕉Kaminanda🕉 (Victoria, BC)
Kaminanda's ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and lush downtempo textures. His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.
🕉Shwex🕉 (Minneapolis MN)
Shwex is the moniker of musician, electronic music producer, and sound designer Nathan Wexler. This project is intended to deliver thought-provoking experimental electronic beats that travel far into the depths of genre-bending sound design.
🕉 Smoke Sign presents Pirate Juice🕉(Portland, OR)
