For global bass trio DISSØLV, the scene is just coming around to a sound they've been developing for years. Northern California's Valentin Santana, Andre Reinero, and tribal fusion dancer Jasmine Semjase have been ahead of the curve blending live instrumentation with exotic otherwordly sounds and a pinch of bass, and now fans are finally starting to notice.
On March 20, the threesome release Kintala on Kalya Scintilla's Merkaba Music label. Produced with a genre-averse ear and a penchant for dance grooves, this 4-track EP comprises a great number of sounds without appearing too disjointed.
Today we premiere “Serpent's Return,” a heavy-hitting opener for the EP, which is packed to the brim with eastern instruments and a barrel full of bass. The trio is fresh off Santa Cruz Music Festival in its hometown, and the momentum is building for this veteran act.
