🔸 DIRTWIRE (https://dirtwire.net)
Dirtw... live shows are a communal psychedelic journey, ranging from down home boot stomping get downs, to bass and blues electronic mashups, to ethereal cinematic beat driven soundscapes. Woven into each is the exploration of where live instruments meet computer production, and where tradition meets experimentation. Dirtwire stands poised between ancient Mother Earth and modern technology, a blend of ethnomusicology and the psychedelic trance state, gut-bucket delta blues and what the band variously dubs “back-porch space cowboy blues, swamptronica, and electro-twang.”
Dirtwire plays an array of instruments both ancient and modern, including West African kamale ngonis, jaw harps, space fiddles, whamola basses, Rickenbacher electric 12 string guitars, bowed Banjos and mouth harps from around the globe, all interwoven into modern laptop beat creation.
🔸 ALIA (https://www.aliafrequency.com/... by the global sacred bass movement, her music is an evocative, lush journey into her own blend of bass-heavy electronic dance beats, melodic frequencies, gorgeous feminine voices, conscious lyrics, and sacred psychedelic sounds. Described as feminine and fierce, elegant and gritty, ethereal and primal, her music unfolds in a pulsing, hypnotic journey that moves both bodies and hearts.
🔸Mystical Joyride (https://www.mysticaljoyride.co... Joyride is the cosmic duo and genre-fluid Psychedelic World Pop band hailing from Los Angeles. This married couple Leah and Joel fly their musical spaceship in between the ratchet and the spiritual. Their live sets are an energetic and immersive experience of meditation and straight up shaking that ass with electronics and live instrumentation.
🔸Emma Lucia (https://www.instagram.com/emma... from both Sweden and California, Emma Lucia creates intimate and haunting songs and vocals with roots in each culture, with production ranging from moody folk to experiential sound scapes, to beat driven epics.
