The Untz prides itself in being on the very cutting edge of the psychedelic bass scene, so one name that kept popping up all over the place over the past couple of years was Living Light. The relatively new project from industry veteran Eartha Harris is a sweeping fusion of downtemple dub, global glitch-hop, and tribal trance that can function on multiple levels to move the body and heal the soul.
A couple of her biggest fans are psybass pioneers Desert Dwellers, who will be releasing her brand new, two-part album on their own Desert Trax label. Tales from the Karman Line 1: Hemispheres will get a February 29th release date, with Atmospheres coming later this year. Perched 100km above the sea floor, the Karman Line delineates the barrier between our gaseous protector and the depths of space. If this writer has to hazard a guess, I'd say this first installment is grounded on this planet, but the later release will be completely out of this world.
We tease the forthcoming EP with "Geminid," today, a swirling stew of sonic flavors from all over the world. Blending island dub with far east flutes and vocal melodies, this hypnotic tune really feels at home in the yoga studio, but can still churn a dance floor into a tranced-out frenzy. Strained through a psychedelic, spacey filter, this song is a journey and a half. Coming in just a hair over seven minutes, this is actually one of the shorter songs on the five-track release, believe it or not.
Living Light will be joining Kaminanda for a two date swing in the midwest, playing 1st Ward Chop Shop in Chicago, IL on April 22nd and Miramar Theatre in Milwaukee, WI on April 23rd. She then joins Papadosio at The Parish in Austin, TX on April 29th. She's also headlining the transformational TEMPLE monthly at 2720 Cherokee in St Louis, MO on July 16th for the goddess celebration. So far, she's already announced on SONIC BLOOM with more summer festival dates on the way.
