More info on KAYLA SCINTILLA-
Kalya Scintilla is a benevolent being incarnate from the star system womp. Drawing inspiration from Nature, Love, tribal energy, healing, sacred geometry, and many other of life's wonders, Kalya's music is quite unique in style and is definitely an interesting cross over between Dubstep/ Glitch Hop, the seductive sound of the Middle East and traditional Gypsy. His debut album 'Dance the Spiral Never Ending' has been given a warm welcome the world over, and sits near the pinnacle of Addictech.com's 2012 yearly chart. Dripping molasses over a fractal tabla, a journey through an enchanted forest, the soundtrack to an epic dream scape. A successful attempt to resonate the heavens and earth channeled through sound waves.
More Info on Desert Dwellers
Desert Dwellers has its roots in the Southern California dance collective known as Moontribe, famous in the electronic underground for organizing tribal dance rituals at magical locations deep within the vast desert expanses of both Southern California and New Mexico. Initially a collaboration in the late 1990's between electronic music pioneers Amani Friend & Treavor Moontribe (aka Amani vs Teapot), Desert Dwellers grew to incorporate Six Degrees recording artist Rara Avis in 2005.
Skillfully blending deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and culture-crossing instrumentation into a sonic incense for mind and body, Desert Dwellers offers a spellbinding hybrid with echoes of our tribal past and future. Using the internet as a collaborative space in which concept albums are created, these sound alchemists use cutting edge techniques that blend the modern edge of electronica with the ancient sounds of cultures past. The result has been the prolific production of genre blending dance tracks and downtempo grooves that make for truly memorable listening experiences. The trio has also collaborated heavily over the years with an amazingly talented array of artists. Craig Kohland (Shaman's Dream) has been supporting the band for years as a producer and guest percussionist. Sarah West, Meagan Chandler and Yamuna Wali are often featured vocalists on their albums, and they have at times been joined in the studio by Sattva Ananda, Michael Kott, Ricardin, and many other talented artists. They have remixed artists such as Donna DeLory, Deep Forest, Girish, David Starfire, Deya Dova, Deva Premal, Jai Uttal, and many underground electronic artists. They have released their work on their own digital labels Desert Trax & YogiTunes as well as on such labels as White Swan, Omnis, Iboga, System, Flow, Six Degrees, and Native State.
More Info on DrumSpyder
Bringing the drums to bellydancers, yogis, and the global dancefloor, Drumspyder weaves the rhythms and tonalities of the Mediterranean and the rhythmic energy of live Arabic percussion into a distinctively sleek and funky style of dance fusion.
Upcoming live appearances include the Symbiosis Eclipse and Movement Play festivals.
Tracks slated for release in 2012 include 3 remixes of the Desert Dwellers on White Swan and Desert Trax, and 2 new bellydance-oriented tracks on the Caravan label.
His debut album "Kytheria" was released on Dakini Records in 2010, and his tracks and remixes have appeared on labels such as Six Degrees, Wonderwheel, Desert Trax, and Caravan, in addition to numerous bellydance DVDs. As percussionist and remixer he has collaborated with some of the most notable figures in global dance fusion, including the Desert Dwellers, Nickodemus, the Spy from Cairo, Makyo, Jef Stott.
