Future Dust redux by Oïd Mü

 Future Dust redux by Oïd Mü - Sangita

The audio production and composition style of Greg Hunter (Spectralite / Waveshaper) is always light years ahead of the sonic spectrum of the day and this release proves no less engagist with a hyper-contemporary juxtoposition of neo-digital textures and cultural audio spaces.

If you’re looking for the joyous rapture of the obvious, then you had better turn off here. Dubsahara’s music revels in Daring to Be Different, a sonic surfers guide to a post-apocalytic paradise, a mashup of the intertextural future of the sonic diorama of world affairs in our time, challenging pulses of subtle distortion that seemingly reflect the endless aggression that tearing through the course of human history, flickers of melodic mystery that shimmer, broken like a mirror of consciousness by the endless turmoil of humanity and yet forming a holosonic paradigm of incredible music.

The Music of Dubsahara is like Birth, Life and Death itself, in an instant, containing both infinite complexity, challenging spaces and divinely ecstatic realms. True Union of the Sacred and the Profane.

Dubsahara

Dubsahara

Dubsahara is digital desert music from subsonic-saharan soundscapes. Crystalline technologies, maquam and dastgah are mashed and mixed in these audio adventures. With a whiff of exotic herbal incense and the dream of the next Oasis, the journeys are long and epic, but the vision upon arrival is one to behold a thousand sufi mystic saints.

Greg Hunter shares another perspective of his multi faceted musical personality. In deep subsaharan bass zones the instrumentalists on mighty herbs are playing like dervishes, the frenzied Lila of a Gnawan all-night ritual, the heady sensuality of an arabian breeze under the date trees. Dubsahara is an exotic evocative invocation, an invitation to sample the delights of the divine in Concordance.

Tune in to the Dubsahara channel with archived & live streams and casts.

In the time it takes to tie your Camel to a date tree, you can click play and let 12 exquisite pieces of musical extravagance whirl you away on a cloud of sound faster than a sandstorm in an Oasis.  The metamorphical meanderings contain such timeless classics as Amoroq, Zentopy and Angelix which are widely known across the golden sands of Time as most Mystics favourite sonological ornamention.

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/

Heres the official website and some thoughts from the organisers…

www.sonica-dance-festival.eu

The Sonica Festival delivers you a new multicultural experience through music, art and peace. As a tool for increasing a common ecofriendly consciousness, Sonica aims to realize an international creative network crossing all different paradigms including visual art, performance and electronic music, together with their own ethic parallel contents such as wellness, meditation, nutrition, holistic therapies, alchemy, cosmology, quantum physics, environmental sustainability, green technologies and human design.

According to this vision, Sonica would like to represent a new spiritual gateway for the universal shift post 2012; a behavioral pattern’s upgrade for applying new ideas and new models of interaction able to overcome the social collapse reached by the information technology era. To achieve this goal Sonica would like to become a junction point for different realities, where the collective participation leads to peaceful comparisons in order to share both transcultural values and the general interests growing behind productions, creations, exhibitions and every kind of artistic expression.
