Kabanjak – Tree of Mystery (full album stream)
Kabanjak is a multi-instrumentalist, and one half of the Ancient Astronauts, one of our favorite downtempo beat makers on the scene today. ESL Music is putting out Kabanjaks new album, titled, Tree of Mystery. You can stream the album above and buy it here. Last year I had a great time hanging out with and performing shows with the Astronauts at SXSW, and Tom Strach, the other astronaut kept hyping Kabanjak up to me. Tom runs Switchstance Recordings, the German label that put out Ancient Astronauts and Kabanjak records in Europe and which we’ve been a fan of for a long time here at Six Degrees. They even did a remix for Vieux Farka Touré last year, and Kabanjak did a remix for Issa Bagayogo a few years back that still rocks dancefloors. The Astronauts SXSW dj sets were great and since then the Astronauts have played some amazing festivals including Lollapalooza, it will be great to see what orbit Kabanjak lands in after this new release. This record is full of dirty drums, dubby melodies and dark moods, German jazz pushed through Jamaican effects and hip-hop beats.
