Greg Hunter (aka Dubsahara)

Greg Hunter

The inimitable Greg Hunter has a long a colourful history in music engineering, production and composition.  Some of his best known credits include work with Paul McCartney, Youth and the early Orb albums.  But it is his fantastic catalogue of incredible works as a producer and musician that have enthralled his fanbase for years.

From creation of the seminal ambient dub of 1995’s Subsurfing album to the legendary ethnodelic classic fusion albums, Lotus Blossom and Second Wave, Sout el Leil and Fifth Sun; Greg has proven himself to be a pioneer of contemporary electronica, always sailing close to the edge of the limits of perceived sound, crafting his ethnodelic music by working with classical and Indigenous musicians around the world and creating a masterful blend with the combination of modern technology and sound production techniques.

On solo projects he has worked under a variety of monikers such as Dubsahara, Mutantra, Jagatah. And his collaberative projects include Spectralite (recorded at Sangita Studio with Darren Sangita) and Waveshaper (with Hataken).

Waveshaper are on the Mutantra label (which Darren Sangita created the logo & logotype for) and they are now on their 3rd release.  Be sure to check out the Waveshaper releases : https://mutantra.bandcamp.com/

Wåveshåper – Empty Path

Deep in the Himalayan mountain range, a mystic sadhu opens his third ear and listens to the universal sound of om echoing through the cosmos.  Flowing down the ancient rivers and drifting slowly across the sands of time in a caranvanaseri, finally reaching the oasis as the sunsets.

All night Lila dances into trance as dervish songs resound and desert drums arrive to enchant the  bedouins as an all night trance unfolds in the moonlight as ancient sand creatures emerge from the desert sands, mechanistic,, insectoid filaments of geometric  structures weave patterns of chaos and fractal order out of the fabric of reality.

Hyperdigital frequencies that emerge from the rays of the morning sun, glistening in hyperspace like a shimmering holographic universe.  Deep in the cavernous halls of the subterranean kingdom of dubstep a new organic life form demonstrates the spiral matrix of consciousness that resides in terrestrial space from crust to core. Alien technologies channel the subterranean synaptic impulses….
Waveshaper - Empty Path
Heres a quote from the official Press Release:
Artist : Waveshaper Title : Empty Path Cat. No. : u000 Release Date : 19.1.14 Format : Digital Download
These precision tools of conscious metamorphic alchemy presented by waveshaper allow the 3 points of focus to align with the sonic structure in the field of hemispheric convergence. When the 3 points of focus are fully attuned then the frequency of the mind transforms into a state of emptiness. Greg Hunter and Hataken entered into a metatronic pyramid in Japan to open an active transmutative connection with the realms of the non-dualisic dimension of ku (emptiness)
