Govinda has been continuously redefining and rebranding itself. After revisiting this project a myriad of times to ensure absolute perfection, Govinda presents Burning Rings of Helios, now out on Gravitas Music. This seven-track album has been Shane’s favorite project to produce thus far, as it traverses different realms of gypsy violin and dives into new inspiration stemming from circus arts. The beats are soft and subtle, yet abrasive and envelope crushing to take Burning Rings of Helios unexpected places while still staying true to Govinda.
Listeners are greeted by a mysterious violin in “CObra STyle” before encountering an upbeat, gypsy dubtronica soundscape that is composed of several twists and turns. The journey proceeds to meet the “Goblin King,” who welcomes visitors with piercing melodic vocals that accompany soothing strings and an abundance of glitch. “Inside Your World” explores the dark and haunting depths of exotic bass, with bewitching vocals that urge listeners to continue the designated path. A sultry violin fluidly glides through the sharp cosmic atmosphere, which causes eyes to wander into “Nebulous Space.” Once consciousness returns, a muted trumpet in “Smokey Memories” attempts to defog hazy recollections in a mellow blues. Soon after, live instrumentation is employed in “Bent Cipher” to distribute a gratifying electronic jazz punch. As the pilgrimage comes to an end, assorted elements featured in preceding tracks are incorporated to tie up the project into a “Twisted” finale.

This is her fusion of dance & contortion that she performs live with Govinda on tour! We are stoked to share this video created by Sey Smith and happy to say we will be releasing more collaborative videos in the future ! Enjoy.
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!
I’m excited to announce that I will be joining the amazing Asheville, NC based electronic rock band Papadosio for the west coast leg of their Awake Inside Tour, April 12-22. For the past 5 years, Papadosio has been creating conscious, mind expanding dance music that purposely defies classification. In an attempt to create an inspirational environment for progressive and positive thinking, this year of 2012 will see the addition of some very exciting and integral means of expressing their artistic message. Papadosio asks that everyone reevaluate the role of music and take a less nostalgic view of what has been and a more enthusiastic view of what is and what could be. The Awake Inside Tour encourages fans to come open their ears, minds, and hearts, and help them wake the world.
