about

World-class sound alchemists filter Desert Dwellers’ classic psy-chilled grooves through a kaleidoscope of midtempo breaks and ornately-textured ambience. Yoga dub meets ethno-electronic bass music on this genre-bending journey through realms of sonic bliss and dancefloor ecstasy.

Bringing the bass music vibe to the yoga space – and the yoga vibe to the bass music space – Desert Dwellers’ global sounds are the bridge between two ideas. Joining solid groove with sounds of serenity, their signature yoga dub aesthetic feels as natural after hours as it does on the yoga mat. Due in no small part to Desert Dwellers’ pioneering spirit, the very concept of yoga music has expanded dramatically.

Some of the most forward thinking producers in the ethno-electronic scene embrace the Desert Dwellers concept on DownTemple Dub: Remixed, a reimagining of Desert Dwellers’ tranquility bass and groove-infused South Asian psy-chill fusion.

International excursions from pacesetting deep bass alchemists (Kalya Scintilla, Love & Light, Kaminanda, and Drumspyder among them), and contributions from rising names in the burgeoning yogabeat scene (Duke Mushroom, EarthRise SoundSystem, Eccodek), the album is more than just deep bass, cool soundscapes and exotic voices. It is the expression of music’s ritual and scientific power. It is the pursuit of the transformative, communal experience that bass music and yoga share.
