Day two of this decade and I feel I need to write about the latest craze on the dubstep scene.
They go by the name Engine-Earz Experiment. Where spirit meets programming, emotion meets logic and man meets machine led by the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist/scorer/dj/producer Prashant Mistry (man with plan).
At their base in Reading, Engine-Earz have created a vast multiverse of music engineered for our reality. Seamlessly marrying a subtle blend of sitar strings, tabla beats, eastern and western vocal and a heavy dose of dub. Not only is their finished product of top quality – they’re even better live (see links below).
December 14th 2009 saw the release of their debut limited edition record double bill on vinyl & download; ‘Kaliyuga’ on the A side and ‘Introspector’ (feat Nathan Flutebox Lee) on the flip. (available on junodownload and beatport).
These guys have truly put some hard grafting making a name for themselves. Remixing works of Basement Jaxx (heavy tune!) to Sean Paul and especially with the BBC where their infamous Maida Vale sessions have really struck a chord (no pun intended) with fans.
2010 is going to be massive for Engine-Earz, a fan base that just keeps growing, gigs and more beautifully constructed tracks coming our way so stay tuned.
Keep your earz open for OHM and Shadow People!
