about

‘Dub Kirtan All Stars’ began as an one off performance curated by
David Starfire and FreQ Nasty (Darin McFadyen) in a Buddhist
temple in Los Angeles. After being asked by his Buddhist Yoga
teacher to create a performance fusing sacred chants and modern
club music FreQ went to his good friend David Starfire who was
already known for blending South Asian instruments with Bass music.
This sparked a musical journey that led them to collaborate with a
host of talented, passionate and conscious artists to create an album
that weaves the stirring chants of the ancient Yoga tradition with the
modern Dub and Bass Music that their name implies. ‘Bhakti
Juggernaut’ is underpinned by a broad palette of Bass oriented
Electronic music production and captivating vocal chants which are
sweetly complemented by live instrumentation and conscious Hip
Hop lyrics. The record was created to inspire both fans of Kirtan and
Yoga culture as well as those looking for music with a strong heart
and a positive message in an age of lowest common denominator
mall culture and music stars who seem to want to sleep on their
power to transform the world for the better.

The name ‘Bhakti Juggernaut’ refers to the 'Ratha Yatra' chariot
festival in India where huge chariots carrying carvings of the deity
Jaggernath would roll out into the streets reputedly crushing devotees
beneath their wheels. In the same way the music is devised to inspire
devotion (‘bhakti’ in sanskrit) to the higher principles represented by
the chants and mantras, but also has the weight and sonic force of
modern Electronic music which crushes on a night club sound system
where it’s designed to be heard.

An ambitious concept, Dub Kirtan All Stars’ attempt to tear down the
boundaries between 21st Century music and an ancient spiritual path
has borne sweet fruit. It’s a unique and powerful record that adds to
the net sum of good in the world, a dynamic and potent soundtrack
for all spiritual gangsters and their revolution of the heart.

‘Bhakti Juggernaut’ features performances by Chaytanya, SriKala,
MC Yogi, Donna De Lory, J Brave, Arjun Baba, Lili Haydn, Rik
Sharaj, Ysanne Spevack, DVine 1 and Claire Thompson.
