Summer Sounds: Exclusive bass-heavy tropical Surya Dub mix (and more)

Kush Arora and Maneesh the Twister of Surya Dub take you deep.

Ahoy, sunshine! In this week's Super Ego nightlife column, I get all hot an bothered about the upcoming re-appearance of the Surya Dub global dread bass DJ crew at the Non Stop Bhangra monthly party on Sat/14. This installment of this ever-awesome and refreshingly diverse shindig is billed as "Indian-Caribbean tropical summer madness." Well, what the heck does that sound like? (Answers below.)

The super-productive producer and DJ Kush Arora is letting us drop this exclusive Surya Dub Summer Rewind mix -- he had a hand in a few of the tunes himself -- to let us hear where his crew is at lately, globalwise. It is a serious jam I highly recommend listening to somewhere you can bounce around. And below the Kush mix track list is a special "Asian dub bass mix" that Maneesh the Twister did for UK website that gets a little more ethereal. And below that? The sounds of Non Stop Bhangra itself, from DJ Jimmy Love. Great stuff, which will sound even better live. Also: catch Kush and Maneesh on the airwaves with their new radio show "The Surya Dub Takeover" Mon 7.23 10pm on KPFA 94.1FM.
