about

After Brian Eno, Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors is the band many music critics see as the seminal influence in the creation of the ambient music genre. Producer Robert Ansell: “When we first tried to market this no-lyrics, no-choruses, no-verses, trance/dance, rhythm-ride music in the early ‘80’s, there was no bin to accommodate it.” Sixteen albums later, the music of Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors is danced to by hundreds of thousands of people as the predominant sound track of the ecstatic dance movement that is sweeping the world.

The remixes on this album were done by Dhruva Ganesan and Dave Sharma of Sub Swara. Started in 2005 as a monthly club act, Sub Swara was a breeding ground of new music across genres, hosting luminaries such as Mary Anne Hobbs, the Glitch Mob, and Bassnectar, well before any of them were selling out stadiums or curating festivals. Sub Swara’s live performances began in this ethos, and kept it close as they grew. Their debut LP, 2008’s Coup D’Yah and 2010’s Triggers garnered critical praise from Pitchfork, The Fader, and the like. They also found time to do dozens of remixes, from Balkan Beat Box, to witchouse fiends CREEP, to Mercury Records’ Skint & Demoralized, and bootlegs of everyone from Mos Def to Fugazi. While they ceased touring in 2012, the duo remain active producers and remixers.

about

Raven Recording New York, New York

Ours is a world beat music without a world, made for a dance without steps, for a tribe without boundaries.

We started recording percussion-driven music in the early 80's to support the 5Rhythms as a dance practice. Since that time we have created twenty albums, each rooted in one or all of the 5Rhythms. We wanted to capture the spirit of the drumming so that people could dance with us.
