As many of you know Govinda has been touring through out most of 2015. The shows have been amazing and we appreciate all of the ongoing support. With touring as much as we have and assuring the next album exceeds all of our hopes and desires, we have been taking a bit longer with Decadence than planned. Rest assured, we are working hard on the Album and hope to have something to share very soon! In the meantime, if you would like to hear a few songs that will be on Decadence, be sure to catch a show in a City near you!
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 20th. Luminance 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 Mikhailova, Brittania Born, Sohpia 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.
