Whitebear (Melbourne, Australia)
Shanti Planti | Re:Evolution
Complexsoundscapesturn to glitch, breakthenflow;psychedelic sound infusions leakstraight to the brain. Whitebear has a particular addiction to mangling samples intotwisted sounds, couplingand contrasting the with infectious arpeggiations, and finally setting the mood in stone withan earthy, groovy, bass. Of late, anorganic, tribal influenceis startingto emerge from the glitches, allowing thelistener totunein and vibe outon dancefloor, stirring up something familiarandprimal within, whilstrevealingnewenvironments.The listener istaken ona 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
Bogtrotter (Minneapolis, MN)
Shanti Planti | Addictech | Re:Evolution
Through complex percussions and growling rhythms, BogTroTTeRs diverse collage of original compositions challenges the scope of modern day psychedelic bass music. His sound pushes the limits through his own unique mixture of glitch-hop, breakbeats, and psy-bass with a dark, swampy twist. Murky bass lines and terrestrial synthesizers are just a few things contributing to the lustrous sound field amalgamated by BogTroTTeR.
BogTroTTeR has seven releases creating complex terrestrial soundscapes on legendary Shanti Planti, Merkaba, and Addictech Records.
Duffrey (Oakland, CA)
Street Ritual | Shanti Planti | Wormhole
Utilizing a fusion of the chilled out, hazy influence from the Northwest and the lush vibrant inspiration of Northern California, has defined an entirely new sonic vocabulary. He experiments with many genres including Midtempo, Dub, Four on the Floor, and Drum and Bass and the result is comparable to an omnitempo psychedelic space safari. Hes known for converting brainwaves into tangible vibration that takes control of your body and leaves you tingling. Duffrey achieves this by combining an undeniable groove, rich instrumentation, and with his insatiable hunger for brain tickling soundscapes and squelchy bass, a complex sonic exploration to transport the listener on a funky intergalactic journey.
Duffrey is a resident DJ at Wormhole Wednesday, Oakland's premium bass weekly and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many talented artists including Bluetech, Ott, Opiuo, Random Rab, Andreilien and Tipper.
