Bass masters Sub Swara flipped Mos Def’s ’40s boogie vibe with deeply serious synth stabs, a powerful crescendo of bass melody and a cascade of what are probably live drum samples, since the dudes play live percussion at their shows. Hey! What a great segue to mention their next live show is at SXSW all the way in MARCH (bad news) but the bill is bazonkers and includes Mary Anne Hobbs and Plastician (good news). Can you say “mindxplosion”? Bump this and try to contain yourself and/or buy a ticket to Austin immediately.
