I’ve always enjoyed combining my style of world bass music with a variety of others like indie rock and soul so when my management approached me with the idea of working with 5 time Grammy Award winning, Blind Boys of Alabama, I was definitely honored and intrigued. These guys roots run so deep, and I knew it was their first electronic effort, so it was very important to me to attempt to convey a lot of emotion in this one track. It took me a while to find balance in all of it and hope everyone feels a little piece of everything that went it to producing the track.

Soon alien clicks and serpentine bass will splice your eaRNA with a superior race of starry eyed dancing machines. Tuesday 5.20.14 worldwide release of Govinda’s “Luminance”. Peep a free track later today courtesy of the The Untz.

“Oozing with sensuality and positively dripping with sweat, the brand new album from Shane Madden finally breaks free May 20thLuminance is 8-tracks of pure sex. Psychedelic squelches, beeps, and whirrs dart in and out of a pulsing, glitchy soundscape of eastern flavors and that violin–oooh, that violin.

To tease and tickle fans, we premiere “Gyspy Side Show, a popular part of the Govinda live set. Soaring vocals pierce the delicate balance between gorgeous melodies and throbbing bass. In fact, the entire album features a plethora of lovely ladies, including Irina MikhailovaBrittania BornSohpia Holt, and UNTZ fave, ill-esha. It’s quintessential Govinda, and fans of his unique brew of global bass will be illuminated.

Grab Luminance on Tuesday, and make sure to catch Govinda’s signature sunrise set on TheUntz.com Satellite Stage at Wakarusa!” – The Untz

a few years ago I had the pleasure of creating music for a children’s book written by my friend Lane Orsak. The vision included original music and lyrics that connected with the story and characters in the book. I was always very fond of Kat’s voice and wanted to remix this track with the Govinda vibe. If you want to understand what the lyrics are about visit the above website.

Falling Pearls
Music: Govinda
Lyrics: Lane Orsak
Vocals: Kat Edmonson
Inspired from the children’s book series Keiko the Fairy (www.keikothefairy.com)

Laurel always has so many remix ideas for me. Most are silly but this one got me pumped. I hope you like it too.

No Sunshine
Music : Bill Withers
Version used : Bobby “Blue” Band

I’m excited to announce that I have launched a Kickstarter to help fund my upcoming 2012 music projects. These projects will help me finish my next EP as well as create a music video and merchandise.

I have spent countless hours of studio time and planning have been poured into the creation. My new EP features haunting female vocalists such as Kyrstyn Pixton and Nancy Kaye, with sensual haunting rhythyms and bass. “My intention is to raise the global vibration through the music and live experience that Govinda creates.”

We only have until April 27 at 12AM to fund this project. Please check out my Kickstarter Page!
