Ganja White Night, the Belgium based duo create cinematic bass music that incorporates reggae, dub, hip-hop, and drum and bass with influences from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. They have been captivating the bass scene since their heavy hitting “Mr Wobble” LP. The LP showcased some of the best work by the rising bass artists and catapulted them to the forefront of the bass scene. Since then, the two masterminds have been producing hit after hit with tracks such as “Flava” and “Champagne”.
Their most recent album, “The Origins” is comprised of some of the best wobble that your ears can handle. The twelve track album brings us into the world of Ganja White Night and displays their wobble sound that has been captivating fans across the world, which is exactly what we got on last Friday, 2/16, at Playstion Theater in Times Square. From languid introductions to intense party jams and downtempo grooves, the twelve tracks tell the story of Mr. Wobble, a superhero who creates music and the world he inhabits.
We got there just in time to see Dirt Monkey at 9:30pm and he kept the crowd going until Caspa took the stage. The UK bass pioneer, Caspa has been denting dances since dubstep’s earliest chapters and he did the same last Friday night.
When 11:20pm hit the crowd got rowdy as everyone knew GWN was about to take the stage. Playing tunes from their new album “The Origins” to playing throwbacks, the whole set was incredible and the visuals were unreal! Some of us were hoping that Rusko would have showed up, but unfortunately, that was not the case. We did however get the pleasure to meet the grafitti artist Ebo, who created the visuals for GWN’s show. Check them out below.
The show was one for the books and the album is amazing and GWN fans are letting the world know. Max, @maxaneuff, tweeted out “I know it’s just February, but Ganja White Night has the best album of the year so far. Every track I’ve heard on “The Origins” has been inventive, heavy and excellent. Leading the way in what good dubstep should sound like.”
If you haven’t heard the album or seen GWN live, you should definitely make it a priority.
