The Space Rock of the Chileans together with the Dub of the ArgentinesFirst time on vinyl celebrating 10th anniversary. Sounding laid-back and incisive at once, crisp production and rock sensibilities .

The Ganjas are one of the best exponents ofChilean Space Rock and a fundamental-must-listen to understand the new Chilean psychedelic scene of the last decade.They began 25 years ago with long jam -kind-of-playing, with steady drum beats and simple bass lines, but adding innovative and colorful lyrics and synths, without ever losing the song structure. On the other side of the Andes, the eclectic by nature Nairobi laid the groundwork for a new style in Dub. Since 2009they have released 3 studio albums and worked with the best legendary Dub producers: Mad Professor, Lee“Scratch” Perry and Sly & Robbie.Touring the same year 2014 in Chile they coincided with The Ganjas at BYM Studios for an unforgettable session that brought this recording, which boasts an intricate rhythm, sumptuous keyboards, and soaring guitars offering elastic grooves, disembodied vocals, and deep bass lines. The album itself revisits the past while also looking to the future. The songs are particularly creative, with the Bob Marley & The Wailers cover‘The Heathen’ totally revitalized and other passages like ‘Pastor’ and ‘Eagle & Snake’ that travel through an incredible mix of styles, brilliantly blending Trip-Hop, Dub FXs from soundboard, a Brian Jones-esque style slide guitar, and songs like ‘Soul Salvation’ that brings an steady reggae beat with genius saxophones lines from Ignacio Czornogas (King Krule).

Mastered by Cem Oral at Jamming Masters (Berlin).
