Sacred Bass Sessions Vol. 1 : Beyond the Dream Dome (for Sabbahji)

SacredB_3

Mixed by Kaya Rainface at the Purple Palace, November 2013

The Podcast Cafe is excited to introduce The Sacred Bass Sessions, a new series of intentional gatherings in Bellingham / Cascadia. Produced in partnership with Boogie Universal and Destination Burning Man, these sessions are envisioned to be a series of transformational events based around electronic music, community engagement and freedom of expression.

This musical mix by
dBM's Kaya Rainface is a soundtrack for our vision of Sacred Bass Sessions, like a mission statement, as well as a map to the subconscious nooks and crannies of your mind. It features music from the West Coast's finest DJs, producers and sound shamans, artists we either have already booked to play an upcoming SBS or are actively pursuing. The low-end mystical flow is deeply inspired by Rainface's time spent in the DreamDome at Photosynthesis 6 this past summer.



Just before releasing this mix, we synthesized a spur-of-the-moment tribute to Cheb i Sabbah at the conclusion of the audio journey, in honor of his passing on November 7. As we listened to this mix that evening, we could clearly hear Sabbahji's influence in every track, his musical legacy informing the current crop of Sacred Bass DJs who carry forward his global-galactic grooves for the next leg of the journey.

track list // itom lab "Galactic Mantra" + The Bells of Sh'ang Sh'ung / Subaqueous "Invoking (eO remix) > In Spire > Cryptic (Michael Manahan remix) / Osiris "Immersion > Soul Diver" / Drumspyder "Caduceus" / itom lab "Brahmin" / Plantrae "Primary Decomposers" / GUDA "Riparian Toadschool" / eO "Lilt" / Kyrstyn Pixton "Dolphin's Pipe" / Cheb i Sabbah "Durga Puja" (Rainface Redub) / eO "Sussurus" / Bass Chakra Therapy outro //

dedicated to the memory of
Cheb i Sabbah

Chiron Transmission 1 : Golgotha



Greetings from the friendly Burners here at Destination Burning Man, and welcome to the latest mix from DJ Playaduster: "Chiron Transmissions 1 : Golgotha." Much of this podcast is shrouded in mystery and codes, but it appears to be a missive sent from the outer fringes of our solar system, a musical message that originates from the proto-comet Chiron.
Discovered in 1977 in its eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, Chiron is known in some circles as the "Rainbow Bridge" or "Wounded Healer," a humble, benevolent guide that can assist humans by keeping us moving forward on our proper spiritual paths. In early February 2011, Chiron entered the watery realm of Pisces, activating the pure power of potential, the manifestation of the unconscious and transformative healing through (re)union with the divine.
The frequencies found in this podcast are believed to have originated from Chiron, with DJ Playaduster serving as a musical midwife in order that they be perceived by the human ear and widely disseminated through our dBM channels.
Contributing artists include Bill Laswell, Rena Jones, Phaelah, Tipper, Heyoka, James Blake, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, DJ/rupture, Kim Hiorthoy, Ezekiel Honig, Yo-Yo Ma, Shackleton, PantyRaid and Thriftworks, with vocal musings from Joni Mitchell, Timothy Leary, Hekter McElliott, Pema Chodron and the Tangerines.

We're still puzzling over this one. Let us know how it hits you and what you perceive at gmail@destinationburningman.com or facebook.com/destinationBM

LOVENESS : Got Found? (Part 2)







We're back on the playa and it's late in the week -- things are moving in synchronicity through deep cosmic channels, new friends have been made, sleep is an afterthought, everything is irreversibly dusty and you love it all. The music you hear throughout the city at night is vibrating through your bass chakras and you don't know where the DJ ends and you begin anymore. In this interpretation, Beats Antique, R/D, Pretty Lights, Kid Kudi and others represent this disorienting but beautiful freakbeat madness.

If you've met a special someone during the week, things may be getting impossibly romantic as the week nears its crescendo. This mix reflects that by veering in to a Tanjalove-inspired pocket of funk and soul healing, grooves that both reflect and enhance the love that is filling your heart to overflowing: "Erotic City", "Take My Heart (You Can Have It)", "Simply Beautiful", "Love to Love You Baby", "You Make Me Smile" and "Sexual Healing." Heavy stuff, for sure, but that's how it is.

On Saturday, the Man falls right around the time that your last bit of protective armor, fear & sadness fall away, and you give in to full
Loveness. A mobile soundsystem, crowned with a glowing, beating heart, plays "Love is in the Air" at the exact moment as the sun rises over the eastern horizon on Sunday morning. Bliss reigns, friends swirl, mimosas bubble, hearts swell and you dissolve in to sunlight with your dusty Beloved in your arms.

Sunday night the Temple is set ablaze and there is
culmination. Sade returns with another take on "Soldier of Love" to show you how far you and your wounded heart have traveled through the week; The Cinematic Orchestra reprises your theme song, "To Build a Home"; Bassnectar & Nelly Furtado conclude the entire affair with a wise reminder: "And I say follow me, follow me, follow me / Down, down, down, down / 'Til you see all my dreams / Not everything in this magical world / is quite what it seems."

Namaste, and thanks for listening. Yours in
LOVENESS, DJ Playaduster

Joyism : Got Found? (Part 1) FIXED



While DJ Fundi is out on sabbatical, we asked our comrades over at DestinationBurningMan.com to share a mix with our listeners that would feed the ears, tantalize the mind and lift the spirits. DJ Playaduster sent this mix over. We think it will work on all accounts. Enjoy! -- The Podcast Cafe

"There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust..
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home.......

Cause, I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust…….."

The Cinematic Orchestra open up this musical mix with a beautiful and emotive song that speaks to me in these days and weeks after Burning Man 2010 : "To Build a Home." It has multiple layers of meanings for me and stirs me in places deep down inside.

Sade provides the second track in the "opening statement" of the podcast, livening up the mood with another song that is rich with meaning for me these days. I heard a DJ slyly drop in to a dance party on the playa, and I sang along to the chorus with all the lovely people on the dancefloor at the top of our lungs, "I've been torn up inside (oh!) / I've been left behind (oh!) / So I ride / I have the will to survive. I'm a soldier of love / all the days of my live..."

With those 2 opening salvos behind us, the mix moves in to the first movement... (more after the jumo)

Egg Radio : Bill Frisell, reconstructed
