I have been asked to come in as musical director and producer for Mickey Hart’s new studio album project! A wonderful opportunity for which I am “grateful”. Mickey and his enthnomusicological work with indigenous music traditions was a huge influence on me in my early years. I am honored to be sitting side by side with him in the studio on this new project.

This FREE Black Swan Wednesday download offers the first glimpse of Desert Dwellers’ forthcoming digital-only release, Nomadic Ecstatic: The Wandering Sadhu Remixes (Vol. 1: 4/29; Vol. 2: 5/27). In their constant pursuit of the cutting edge in electronic music innovation, the dynamic duo of Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe are attaining new heights (or perhaps depths) in bass music.
Today we present, “Wandering Sadhu (Jef Stott Remix),” a propulsive, downtempo rework of one of Desert Dwellers’ most popular tracks. This song, along with a few other psychill Dwellers treasures, gets first-class remix treatment from a lineup of new transnational luminaries (including Drumspyder, Chaos Control and Eastern Sun) and living legends (Banco de Gaia and the aforementioned Mr. Stott).
We hope you like today’s free song. If you do, please share it and, as always, thanks for listening.
