On Thursday January 14th 2016, Govinda, Kaminanda and Asheville’s own Captain EZ join forces to bring a night of downtempo bliss to the stage at New Mountain Asheville.
Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production.
It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.
The Govinda live show is truly a multi-sensory experience that features professional dancers, live projections, resonating vocals and a sonical sound-scape. His live experience is full of vibrant energy that plays to its crowd. Govinda performs on Ableton Live accompanied by classical violin.
Govinda is currently touring in support of his album “Universal On Switch” which was released independently earlier this year.
Joining him on Thursday is Kaminanda, whose ever evolving sound is a playground of original deep Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, creative trip hop,complex Dub and lush downtempo textures. Playing live sets with guitar, keyboards, flutes, melodica, and vocals,Kaminanda’s music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing diverse landscapes reflecting the evolution of our collective consciousness.
Asheville’s own Captain EZ opens up the show, bringing his own unique sound he calls ‘Pimp Smooth’ — a distinctive blend of ghetto funk, glitch, glitch-hop, future bass, hip hop, funk, nu-funk, and chillout — to New Mountain once again.
Tickets are only $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Ages 18+
