Cheb i Sabbah, musical adventurer, global spiritualist and producer extraordinaire has returned to the Indian subcontinent for Devotion, his seventh album on Six Degrees Records. Hundreds of artists in the world music genre, or for that matter any genre, have come and gone like bottle rockets, but Cheb i Sabbah’s light keeps burning and it is his bhakti (devotion) to the spiritual essence of music, and to truth and humanity, that is responsible for his longevity. Sabbah was nominated for the BBC’s 2006 Award for World Music in the Club Global category.

Amar is amongst a handful of local DJs whose taste cuts a path through an abundance of musical selections
and leads dancefloors into a hypnotic sway like snakes before the charmer. In this instance the muse is a
masala that brews sounds from the Middle East and Balkans with rhythms of the Asian underground and
electric Brazilian vibes. Whether its breaks, bhangra, house, drum & bass or downtempo the global nature
of Amar’s sets bridges a multi-culti span from the world to the Bay Area.
The Brooklyn based duo, Beatbox Guitar create an innovative mix of
flamenco, psychedelic rock, hip hop and punk. Human beatboxer,
Pete List’s effortless flow of beat and breath on the mic showcases
Rob Mastrianni’s intricate guitar and electric sitar stylings.
Enter Dulce Vita (pronounced dol-sie/vee-tah). As a DJ performer in San Francisco, the North American capital of electronic dance music, how does DV stand out? Along with a highly-acclaimed ability for solid track selection, true individuality happens here as a result of a musical risk. With the crossfader as her primary canvas and a signature brand of aggressive intent, she performs a sound all her own – an energetically urban soundscape of breakbeat, infused with audible hints of Nu Skool, Big Beat, Chunky Electro, Tech-Funk, Filtered Disco, World Beats, Dubstep, Glitch-Hop, and IDM.
