The Ancient Astronauts are Kabanjak and Dogu, a bombastic production and DJ duo hailing from Cologne, Germany. The phenomenon of “Ancient Astronauts, “a belief that extraterrestrial beings visited Earth in ancient times to mingle and trade ideas with early human civilizations”, isn’t an alien concept to these Ancient Astronauts. The cross-pollination and mash-up of ideas, sounds, styles, and a collaborative spirit are their modus operandi.
Self described as a “mash up of the distant past and far future”; Ancient Astronauts are back after having created an album born out of an eclectic mix of ideas, and internationally critically acclaimed album ‘Into Bass And Time’. This new follow up is an eight tracker, ‘The Orion Nebula Remixes,’ they have enlisted the talents of a variety of diverse producers that hail from their label ESL Music (Eighteenth Street Lounge – Thievery Corporation‘s label) and other to manifest some quality remixes!
Loving the variation of styles and this album takes you on a journey through deep organic Downtempo, Hip Hop, Breakbeat and modern Dub excursions. This album is for the True School lovers, the wobbly Dub headz, the cinematic Downtempo/Trip Hop devoted listeners as well as the Afro infected Breakbeat folks.
Talent on this album includes: J-Boogie, Subatomic Sound System, Entropik, Thomas Blondet, Second Sky, Kabanjak and more!
