Wednesday is humpday, which not only marks the halfway point between the work week and the coveted weekend, but also Conscious Electronic’s Midweek Mantra Mix (M3). We’ve been scouring the web’s most enlightening bass music mixes that align with our vision, to provide “a conscious way to consume dance music.” M3 spotlights both veteran and up-and-coming bass music artists whose music seeks to raise the vibrations of their collective listener base.
It goes by many names and has many subgenres: leftfield bass, glitch hop, future R&B, tribal, dubstep, future bass, and psychedelic bass, just to name a few. The bottom line is, the large umbrella of conscious bass music is growing and expanding like never before. Produced by a host of musicians across the world, this style of music is flowing out of speakers at bass-oriented gatherings everywhere. The rise of samples, textures, and live instrumentation taken from a large variety of sources across a multitude of genres are all contributing to the vision.
spacegeishA is one of the leaders of this awakening in conscious musical energy. She is the founder and boss of Street Ritual, a collective and label centered around sounds, media, and ideas focusing on the inspirational and enlightening practices of neo-tribalism. Using her platform to curate, promote, and propagate the works of a legion of dedicated producers, spacegeishA is at the head of a phalanx of audio crusaders that are intent on changing the musical landscape of the globe. Through an ever-expanding reach and a widening circle of influence, spacegeishA and Street Ritual are opening the door to a new way of participating in music and culture.
She’s also a talented and respected DJ. Performing her sets while selecting music from a wide variety of sources, she’s in the perfect position to mix together a host of remarkable tracks, as producers are doubtless constantly sending hot new tunes to her. Her ear for fusing music together is undeniable; it’s often difficult to tell where one track ends and the next begins, yet listeners will find themselves in entirely different places from when a mix starts to when it ends.
Her mixes can be found all over the internet, but her recent post titled simply “harddd lānding” is perfectly characteristic of her style. Featuring a slew of music from her frequent collaborators, labelmates and a ton of other musicians, it’s an hour of the freshest conscious bass born straight out of the ideals of Street Ritual. This writing from the collective’s Facebook page sums it up best: “Through this ritual we birth a new, global consciousness. You have reached a point on this path, the dance is your own destiny.”
