Pasta Groove’s “Kometa” brought to life in live recording.

December 27th, 2013

Last month, Dub Temple Records had the pleasure of organising a release party for “Kometa”, the debut DT release from Manila’s stalwart producer, arranger and beat-maker Pasta Groove.

Held in Manila’s premier alternative music venue, Black Market, PG brought his compositions to life, leading a band featuring MPC genius Caliph8 (Dub Temple) on drums, Pasta Groove on MPC and local musicians on bass guitar, keys, flute and percussion.

Having witnessed the fwd-pushing energy and musicality of this show, we are pleased to present a live recording of the performance. It could be considered spiritual soul-jazz with a deep Hip Hop aesthetic. For fans of the music of Black Jazz, Groove Merchant and Strata East mixed with some Rawkus and Mowax in there. TIP.

The Return of Ras G (Brainfeeder)

January 25th, 2012

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…
