Coming from the coast most prominent for its psychedelic dance music, California-based producer Kaminanda has delivered, yet again, another undeniably unique take on the sonics of electronic music. In an electronic dance music scene that has seen a recent influx in funk, producers must create something special in order to stand out amongst the rest. Having proven himself over the past few years as one of the leading acts influenced by tribal music- seducing fandom with live instrumentation at festivals such as Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, and Burning Man- Stephen Kaminanda’s newest release consists of elements that continue to make him a funky crowd’s favorite. With upbeat melodies that lift you back into reality as psychedelic bass lines send you sinking into space, Liminal Spaces leaves the listener lost in a space that is, well, liminal. “Where am I?” Let the perfected tribal sounds determine that for you. You can catch Kaminanda and lose yourself in his new tunes this week at Sonic Bloom Festival, but don’t forget to download the delightful album for a mere $7.77.
