Walrii of Dank Morass has released his debut EP on the Brisbane based label, Dub Temple.
DL for FREE/donation here – http://dubtemplerecords.bandcamp.com/album/weaver-ep

Hailing from Brisbane’s Dank Morass crew, Walrii (Isaac Ismail) has been devouring, DJing and promoting bass music since before it coalesced into a global movement. In 2013, he presents his first EP of original music, Weaver.
Ismail’s passion for music is evident in his DJ sets, alchemical journeys which run as wide as they do deep, traversing his love for both the freshest unheard beats and the hidden archeological treasures of the past. With Weaver, the Walrus has woven a rich set of five songs, plus one interlude, that evoke a maudlin parallel to the dancefloors he’s drawn energy from for years.
Tapping the upbeat grooves and ethereal chords of Brazilian music, the EP also references jazz In its ethos of exploration, and doffs its hat to deep house, dubstep, hip hop, library music, classic soul and IDM along the way.
The threads of Walrii’s tapestry are raw bass stabs, drunken piano chords, lush atmospherics and capricious percussives, all of which coalesce with frequently surprising beauty.
The mournful horn and pensive piano of ‘Rocel (Take 2)’ alternately play out over a restrained shimmering bass and skittering percussion that sets the scene. The crackle-house of ‘Return/Yet to Learn’ revives the piano drops and finds ghostly voices swimming up from the depths of the mournful mix.
The opiated roll of centerpiece ‘Dedication Parts 1-3’ features the roaming improve piano of classically trained Ed Ruben, chopped with a sloppy precision, while title number ‘Weaver’, co-produced with Rift of Speakerwrath, crackles with handclap and a synthetic carrier tone, retrospectively bringing the rest of the EP into focus. The loping, playful wash of ‘Tel Aviv’ closes proceedings with the listener off guard, and hungry for more.
Weaver is startling in its cohesiveness and intriguing in its calculated restraint, a timely and fascinating strain of the evolving bass music virus.
As a DJ, Walrii has played bills with Digital Mystikz, Lorn, Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Ras G, Blu and Exile, The Bug, Joker, N-Type, Starkey, Cut Chemist, Roots Manuva, Mount Kimbie, Hermitude and many more. He has remixed Science Project and Voodoo Dred, and released tracks on Brisbane labels Dub Temple and Ender Records.
He has appeared live on NTS Radio London, as well as regularly on 4ZzZ Radio Brisbane and is a fixture at any Brisbane night exploring the truly innovative outer realms of bass music.

After the Dank Morass event featuring the inter-stella performance by Ras G in 2010, the man reaches our shores once again. This time brought to Brisbane by new promo crew mosca on the back of the Blunted tour. This is not one to miss out on. Walrii from Dank Morass in support with some deep dubs.
-Ras_G & The Afrikan Space Program-
Somewhere in the interstellar intersection of Sun Ra, DJ Spooky, Strata East and Lee “Scratch” Perry is the incomparable musical mind of LA native Ras G. Although he affixes often group nicknamed “The Afrikan Space Program” for that his name was Ras G (a mixture of his first initial and a testament to his belief in Rastafari) is the only captain and crew of the spacecraft, together with a 21st century moxie his collective influences make up what he describes as Ghetto Sci-Fi, an alien sound wave transmission of the double white noise glitch, unstable boom-bap and sound bites. Contains healing tones (specific sound frequencies that are alleged to have profound effects on the body and soul) modal jazz and procecustomers’ inspiration. Ras G has successfully concocted a sonic brew that defies conventional musical categorization
“As opposed to riding trends and waves I try to bring the music that I really know,” he explains “It is my offer to the world”
He blew minds, ear drums and bass bins the last time he was in the country and in 2012 he’s set to do it all over again…
