Live: Shpongle

With over 80 years experience collectively Simon Posford and Raja Ram are more than qualified for the exploration into the unclassifiable music frontiers they have ventured into; ‘SHPONGLE’ is a new world of traditional sounds, acoustic guitars, Moroccan drums, Turkish operatic singing, cello, double bass, backing vocals and silver flute blended together with the computer wizardry of Simon Posford's studio production. www.shpongle.com

Younger Brother

Younger Brother is a killer combination of Simon Posford's (Hallucinogen, Shpongle) studio wizardry and Benji Vaughan's (Prometheus) dance music sensibilities. Their first track 'Evil + Harm' which was commissioned for Survival International's 'Tribal Future's' compilation, was a powerful ambient world fusion and became the standout track on the first album. The name, Younger Brother, itself comes from their work on this album while remixing samples of the Kogi tribe. The Columbian Kogi Indian's refer to themselves as 'Older Brother' and the rest of the world as, 'Younger Brother' so the name represents the population of the outside world. www.twisted.co.uk


Psylab was conceived in early 2005 with a mission to introduce a full human element into electronic dance music, where everything is created entirely in real-time by 4 musicians. Psylab's primary focus is on psy-trance styles; however they are also known to perform full sets of drum'n'bass, house, dubstep and downtempo. Psylab has been teaming up with skilled DJs and electronic bands, performing at regional weeklies, private parties, and underground events. Psylab is planning a west coast tour for late 2006, and has plans to visit Europe in mid-summer 2006. www.psylabunderground.com

The Disco Biscuits

Philadelphia-based band The Disco Biscuits recently released their double live album The Wind at Four to Fly (SCI Fidelity Records/April 18). Back in fine form after the departure of their longtime drummer, this summer The Disco Biscuits hit the road this summer with new drummer Allen Aucoin. The auditioning process was lengthy but they found that Aucoin jumped straight in, meshing with the Biscuits' in the groove, solid feeling called BISCO.

2006 marks The Disco Biscuits eleventh year of rocking out in their unique musical smorgasbord style which fuses rock, electronic and classical music. The band met at the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 and started off with frat gigs but made the quick switch to the club scene. Their eclectic live shows gained them a rabid following, making them leaders in the jam and groove scene. www.discobiscuits.com

The Roots

1987. Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, second day of school. A student named Ahmir Thompson walks into the principal’s office seeking a lunch pass. At the same time, a freshman named Tariq Trotter stumbles in, gripped by school guards who caught him engaging in “extracurricular” activities with a ballerina in the ladies bathroom. Luckily, Thompson has designs larger than lunch, and Trotter’s game is wider than women. Thompson is a jazz drummer and Trotter is an MC, and decides to create music together. They can’t afford turntables, microphones, or DJ equipment. But then again, they are secretly glad about their dollar deficiency--their collaborations wouldn't have that something-from-nothing spirit that built hip-hop and rock. So, Trotter rhymes over Thompson’s rented drum kit. Eventually, they call themselves the Square Roots, and Thompson adopts the name ?uestlove and Trotter takes on Black Thought. www.theroots.com

John Medeski + The Itch

John Medeski was asked to present a project at this year's All Good Music Festival. John Medeski and The Itch (Eric Krasno and Adam Deitch) was the result. Their acidicly funked-out jazzical sounds meet and beat any expectations that you may have of this power trio.

DJs: Thievery Corporation (DJ Set)

Thievery Corporation's fourth album, The Cosmic Game, finds the duo of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton in their most expansive mood yet, as their latest sonic exploration blurs the boundaries between rock, breaks, future-bossa, dub, and other mind-altering sounds. When dropped, The Cosmic Game is a psychotropic, aural concoction, which clearly opens a new dimension in the ever-evolving Thievery odyssey.

Ironically, Thievery Corporation formed in Washington D.C., a city the duo often refer to as 'the real Babylon." One major by-product of life in the heart of empire is the diversity of the people it attracts to its riches. Underneath the power brokering, DC has quietly spawned a sophisticated musical multi-culturalism (especially in the Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle neighborhoods that became TC's home). The city also gave a base to Dischord Records and Positive Force, a scene whose fierce independence, musically and politically, forcibly affected every nearby young musician with a non-mainstream pulse. www.thieverycorporation.com
