On Nomadic Ecstatic: The Wandering Remixes, some of the top names in the underground global music scene take on tracks by downtempo/psychill power duo Desert Dwellers. The original tracks forming the basis for these remixes were composed by Desert Dweller Amani Friend for a series of Yoga DVDs co-produced by Rara Avis of Yogi Tunes & Craig Kohland of Shaman’s Dream.
One of Desert Dwellers’ most popular tracks is “Wandering Sadhu” — a song remixed in a diversity of ways for this two-part, digital-only collection. Volume 1 features versions by electronica luminaries Drumspyder and Jef Stott. It’s rounded out by ambient dub legend Banco de Gaia’s remix of “Shiva Nataraj”, as well as contributions from Kaleidoscope Jukebox and Chaos Control.
For over a decade, Desert Dwellers have been creating exceptional original material, steadily and deservedly ascending the ladder to musical renown. Filtered through the minds of a broad spectrum of visionary producers, that material is transformed into Nomadic Ecstatic: The Wandering Remixes – a truly tremulous set of music from global electronica’s cutting edge.
