    Tom Spirals started cooking up the magic of The Ashram Express EP in December 2019; on an Indian train between Delhi and Jaipur, the name of which became the title of the EP.

     

     

     

    Spirals worked on The Ashram Express throughout his three-month tour between Goa, Melbourne, Byron Bay and Raglan NZ , before finally coming home to complete the EP in Glasgow, Scotland.  The Ashram Express EP features a vocal cut entitled State Of Mind, delving into Tom’s firmly-held belief that humans should be able to explore the potentially healing states made available to us through natural psychoactive plants; and a flute cut, in Tom’s (now signature) Celtic dubwise style.



     

    The EP also boasts two remixes; a hefty steppers stomper from Oregon, USA’s Blind Prophet [Dub-Stuy Records] and a mind-bending dubstep emission from fellow Glaswegian, Konchis.


     

    The EP has been played and supported by the likes of David Rodigan, OBF, Culture Dub, Sinai Sound and Mungo’s Hifi to name a few and sold out ALL of the physical copies on the release day.

     

    This is the first fully independent production and release from Spirals - but definitely not the last.

    After last collaboration with Homegrown Sound from Croatia, Slovenian most active independent dub label Massive! Sound Records, is stern on course with presenting local producers and heavy-bass dub music. Once again they placed Koneski on pedestal and let us say, rightfully so!

    This is second release from Massive! Sound Records with vocal back up and also second as of international collaboration. Koneski joined effort with Jojo Gladstone, Dutch singer and pianist, to produce rub-a-dub style song with 80’s flavor. True fans will notice that inspiration for it comes from the riddim masters Sly & Robbie.

     

    MURDA is packed with reverb and delay with strong and col snare, that creates specific atmosphere Koneski has mastered trough his releases for Massive! label so we didn’t expect anything less this time. Combined with smooth vocal from Jojo, it only further emphasizes the dramatic backdrop of the song. Version alone would be more than enough, but the message original brings is very powerful and maybe more than ever relevant, with the situation going around the world. If you want to hear it in the way Koneski and Jojo imagined it, you should turn your volume up to the maximum, or better yet, listen to it at the nearest sound system party and enjoy the pressure it creates.


    As we stated before, this release brings original song and a version, but Massive! crew assured us continuation of MURDA project with some more versions during following months from producers such as Green&Tall (Slo) and HomeGrown Sound (Cro).

    SUMERR, the Jamaican female artist, who recently debuted with her album Downs District is back with a drum'n'bass remix of her track Head Up ft. Kumar.

    We already introduced upcoming singer on our pages and also did interview with her not that long time ago!


     


     

     

    We live in a time, when the verse “Keep ya head up” has more meaning than ever before. Known for their support to the youths and the community in general is also the most active soundsystem in the Balkans region – RootsInSession Soundsystem, based in Ljubljana/Slovenia, very known for mixing bass genres like reggae, drum'n'bass, hiphop, jungle and spreading positive messages at every ocassion.

     

    A perfect get-together of SumeRR’s vocal and RootsInSession’s vibe will put you in a confident and courageous mood. The remix starts with an original intro, in which SumeRR shares a clear message and shows that she is coming to the top of the reggae scene. The intro is followed by RootsInSession’s drop down and switch to straight jump-up drum’n’bass beat that continues with cuverball basslines and wobbles, while SumeRR’s vocals echo in your head “Head Up, Head Up …”

     

    The guitar inserts are played by Matej Huljev, who added the right dose of live riffs to the remix and the final sound image is provided by the penetrating drum'n'bass producer Filip Motovunski in his FM Mastering Studio in Zagreb/Croatia. Another proof why RootsInSession have been in the business for 20 years an still continue with joining forces with musician in the Balkan region and all over the globe, among which are artists like David Boomah, Kiril Dzajkovski, Dubioza Kolektiv, Edo Maajka, Brain Holidays to name a few.

     

    Head Up remix is for all DJs and selectors, who like to mix different genres of bass music and support soundsystem culture. This chune is ready to spread to the worldwide drum'n'bass scene.

    Glasgow's Tom Spirals and the outer-national 4'20 Sound are serving up a deep mellow roots style for their first cross-continent release.

     

     

    "If We Got Here Easy" originated as a simple acoustic love song, written by Tom Spirals on his recent tour in Australia and was recorded with the help of the 4'20 Sound live band, featuring T.K on double bass and Chelsea Sky-Eater & Empress Katia on backing vocals, at the Sky-Eater studios in the rolling foothills of the Northern Rivers hinterlands. 

    Since the recording session in January of 2020, 4'20's head honcho, Oren Selecta has perfected the production to create a deep yet gentle, heartwarming roots release. Spirals' warm tone and a lazy-hazy flow adds to the warm sunshine sounds with lyrics to celebrate reaping the benefits of your patience and a heartfelt nod of acknowledgement to the rocky path of long-distance lovers. 

     

    (From Tom Spirals Facebook)

     

    The 4'20 Sound and Tom Spirals first met at the internationally-renowned club night Walk n Skank in Glasgow, where Spirals is the residence MC, in 2017. They maintained the link, and three years on have performed together extensively across the UK, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Its with great pleasure we present to you their first official release.

     

     

     

     

     "Served with the recommend consumption guidelines of keep chilled and enjoy alongside a generous dose of sunshine."
