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…
Just before the Dank Morass event featuring Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer and Hermitude early last year, our good friends from the art and food collective Bookery Cook cooked up a big middle-eastern feed for our artists!

Travelling to Vietnam, the home of his grandparents, Onra went on a serious digging mission which resulted in an album called Chinoiseries, crafted entirely from samples from Vietnamese and Chinese vinyl gather on the journey.
Turning direction again, Onra dropped his opus Long Distance in 2010, tapping into the sounds of 80s boogie, modern soul and funk with a full length composed entirely on the MPC1000.
Parisian beatmaker Onra (Arnaud Bernard) hits Brisbane on Thursday November 10 with a live show at Barsoma.
We here at the Morass, having followed the merging of hip hop and electronic music for many years, are extremely excited to see this EP released in a world where so much music lacks a lasting resonance. The Voodoo Dred EP is deeply personal and conceptual, put together with spirituality, soul and intelligence.
Born in Mexico City to Haitian parents, VOODOO DRED a.k.a. Vadim Juste-Constant moved to Australia when only 3. Music was a major part of his family life, his father being a well renowned touring singer throughout Haiti and Mexico. Mainly growing up in Sydney, Brisbane and later Darwin, all impacting on the developing artist VOODOO DRED. In 2007, he arrived in Melbourne, looking for a new channel for his compelling/dynamic love for music. He has been touring as a diverse artist since 2000 not only as VOODOO DRED but as an MC/singer and musician playing instruments from drums, guitar, bass and percussion in bands such as Culture Connect and Gorilla Step with DJ Dexter.
“The concept of what I want to create is to continue the west African tradition of a Griot but in an urban, contemporary sense. Going back to traditional African beats and translating them into a hip hop context, I believe traditional African drumming is the original “trance” music because back in the day they would play these rhythms for days on end and literally get into a trance.” – VJ
