“The important thing is to polish wisdom and the mind in great detail. If you sharpen wisdom, you will understand what is just and unjust in society and also the good and the evil of this world; then you will come to know all kinds of arts and you will tread different ways. In this manner, no one in this world will succeed in deceiving you. It is after this stage that you will arrive at the wisdom of strategy. The wisdom of strategy is entirely distinct. Even right in the middle of a battle where everything is in rapid movement, it is necessary to attain the most profound principle of strategy, which assures you an immovable mind. You must examine this well.”
Musashi Miyamoto, The Book of Five Rings

Conscious Kalling: New Awakening Remixes

July 29, 2014

Subbass“Conscious Kalling is an up and coming high desert bass music producer from New Mexico. With a passion for all things weird and unique, his production breaks the boundaries of what music should be. Difficult to classify into genres his constantly evolving style takes influence from tribal cultures across the globe and layers it with unique bass sounds and emotional instrumentation.”

Back in 2013 Secret Archives of the Vatican contributed a tune to a compilation called Ethnostep 4.  Another track on there was New Awakening by Conscious Kalling.

“Perhaps due to it’s strong world influence and use of real instruments over deep synthesized bass lines, New Awakening remains once of the most played track’s in Conscious Kalling’s

The Subbass label has now released a compilation of remixes of New Awakening and we have contributed one of the remixes. It’s name your own price and that can include free –  but please consider making a small contribution. Musicians deserve to make some income from their work.

Loga Ramin Torkian

May 20, 2014

We are huge fans of the band Niyaz (you’ll have heard their music in our podcasts) and of the musicianship of band member Loga Ramin Torkian (Persian: لوگا رامین ترکیان)

Here is a short video of him showing us some of his instruments.  Those Persian tunings send shivers down my spine!
