This week I have uploaded a kind of world music mix that has a variety of styles from minimal ethnic ambient sounds to ethno-dubstep and beyond. I haven't done too many of these before as I'm not so familiar with the world music genre. However from time time I do run across some rather nice ethno tribal tracks on psychill compilations and the like. So I've gathered a few of the good ones together here in this mix to create a psychedelic world ambient fusion journey. Its runs at around 70 minutes which makes for a nice CD should you want to burn one.
We start with "Gham Dub" by Echo Wanderer, which is the first track from his album "Moving Through Dub" released by Full Melt Recordings in 2011. FMR has a nice selection of bass heavy and dubstep sounds on their books so check them out if you are into that kind of sound. This track has a great slow build to it that is full of ancient tribal trance like atmospheres and creates a smooth intro to the set.
Next is a track from a little known album called "Liquid Dreams" by Ma Faiza and Veet Sandeh. Released in 2006 this album didn't get much distribution in the psyamb genres of psychill or psydub which is unfortunate as it certainly would appeal to such listeners. It's a great album of slick dub/downtempo tunes with Indian vocals. The pair have released a few tracks from the album on a number of noteable compilations including "Goa Beach Vol 6" and the excellent "Mar Y Tierra 2" so it's surprising that they haven't released anything further.
