On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Desert Dwellers

After listening to Umberto Echo’s Dub the World, I wanted to dub more of the world. This dub selection moves from the Carib/Afro roots to the Middle East & India for its more world music dub..

Desert Dwellers has its roots in the legendary Moontribe full moon gatherings that took place in southern California & nothern New Mexico. Originally a collaboration forged between Amani Friend (Global Dragon) & DJ Treavor Walton (then known as Amani vs. Teapot), Desert Dwellers has grown to encompass virtually every style of electronic music ranging from full on psy-trance, progressive-tribal house, & glitchy breaks, to world fusion downtempo, ambient, & ethnostep dub. Since its creation, Desert Dwellers has brought several other producers into their mix as collaborative partners, including RaRa Avis, DJ Jonathan Grossman, DJ Kepi, & Craig Kohland of Shaman's Dream Music. They have released many albums since 2006 (about one a year).  This from 2009…
