EARTHTRIBE (One Off Reunion Show)
Architects of the Asian Underground, Earthtribe
return for a one off reunion show with their
alchemy of influences, a breathless tour of global
beats which brings in hip hop, drum + bass,
techno, jazz reggae and funk flavours, central to
this is their Indian and African inspirations;

create an ethno-cyber funk experience.
DHANGSHA (AKA DR DAS of Asian Dub
Foundation) w/ RAMJAC and BANTU
Started in 2018, DHANGSHA the electronic
project of Aniruddha Das, a.k.a. “Dr Das,” bassist
and co-founder of Asian Dub Foundation.
As Dhangsha, Aniruddha creates edgy
soundscapes characterised by modulating
synths hijacked from techno, underpinned by
heavy off-kilter beats and mangled with a dub/
noise sensibility. This is a return to his roots in
experimental rhythm and noise, going back over
30 years, pre-dating his involvement with dub.
He normally performs solo, improvising with
hardware instruments to deliver a militant
collision of alien frequencies and terrestrial bass.
For this gig however, he’ll be joined by long term
friends and collaborators Ramjac on congas and
Bantu on additional electronics.
The first Dhangsha album "Future Tense" is
released on cassette and digital download
through Bandcamp June 2019.
