Kabanjak is one half of the block-rockin’ German hip-hop production and DJ duo Ancient Astronauts, and ESL Music’s newest unique artist signing. With a deep passion for music dating back to a childhood fixated on watching faded footage of Jimi Hendrix performing guitar pyrotechnics, Kabanjak has spent decades honing his skills as a musician, producer, remixer, and DJ. Now he is ready to present his own musical vision with his debut solo album
Tree of Mystery!
Kabanjak not only tackles much of Tree of Mystery’s live instrumentation, including guitars, bass, keys, kalimba, flute, and melodica but also teams up with various other vocal and instrumental talents: Steady collaborator Ulf Stricker provides snapping live drum rhythms, Canadian DMC champion and Juno Award winner DJ Brace provides cuts and scratches, poet Azeem (who also appeared on last years debut Ancient Astronauts album We Are To Answer) drops conscious rhymes, and Sitali (from Thievery Corporation’s live show) and Rykarda Parasol provide soulful incantations.
With its broad spectrum of haunting melodies, rough riddims, and solid arrangements, spanning from downbeat to hip-hop to dub reggae, Kabanjak lets Tree of Mystery dig its roots deep into the musical underground and grow its branches right up into the sky!
Tree Of Mystery is released November 2, 2010 on ESL Music
