A video from those days when Nas (former Nasty Nas) was really authentic and raw:
Hello friends & family,
we hope you are fine wherever you are. The weekend has nearly come and what better than music to start it with?
Dr. Best from German radiostation Radio Z in Nuernberg asked Dogu to do an exclusive DJ Mix for his show “Limbo Rhythm” in late 2013. His show is an eclectic mixture of quality conscious music from Downtempo to Hip Hop to Funk to Reggae and more styles. That said it is perfect to fit an Ancient Astros style mix to the show. The mix was aired in early january and we uploaded the mix to our Soundcloud page for all you guys out there who were not able to listen to the radioshow:
HAPPY WEEKEND !!!
How is everybody today?
We would like to share this video of an older tune from us remixed by DJ Ole, a great DJ and producer from Berlin. The tune is some years old now but the videos were done by Uli Sigg during his and Dogu´s performance at the GamesCom computer fair in summer 2013 in Cologne. Very nice, right? We hope you enjoy it too.
Stay safe and warm this month and talk to you soon!
good day world,
here is our brand new video for “Tuff Gong” featuring Martin Perna of ANTIBALAS afrobeat orchestra and Ocote Soul Sounds on flute. We want to give BIG THANKS out to the B-Boys and B-Girls in the video, which are the DMI Breakerz from Chicago and Daniel “The Grouch” Holt from NYC !!! This is such a great european-american collaboration. Music bridges all distances and gaps on this planet.
Keep it positive !!
those of you who follow our label Switchstance Recordings since 2001 will know that the first release was edition 1 of the Fantastic Freeriding label compilation. All our label´s artists were presented with a fine selection of tunes and the sound of our label and artists made great waves all across the world. The past years saw Switchstance concentrating on individual artist releases but we thought it is time for another full label statement. Fantastic Freeriding is back again with edition number 4, giving musical statements to what is happening out there in the whole wide world as well as in our own worlds. It is music in the present, in the NOW. Next to our classic Switchstance artists Protassov, Deela, Kabanjak and ourselves, we have a new label collegue from Chicago, named Void Pedal. As our friend and collaborateur Asphate from Chicago based Hip Hop crew Maxilla Blue perfectly described him, Void Pedal “is a beast” on the beats and harmonies. An incredible new talent on Switchstance Recordings. In addition to this we have a very special guest on the album. Martin Perna, founding member of ANTIBALAS afrobeat orchestra, blessed our Ancient Astronauts song “Tuff Gong” with his live flute and gave this song the melodic shape it needed. Tight and on point!
The sound of Switchstance Recordings, NOW:
