We are almost packed for Bass Coast and its time for a breather. I was thinking I could just play this Mini Mix by Librarian to get cooled off before continuing the pre-festi planning party. Man was I wrong… I hit play and before I knew it I was juking around in my living room with the windows open and my stereo speakers singing!
Andrea Graham, better known as the Librarian makes magic with this stellar mix recorded just last week at the Bassment Stage at Bass Coast. She’s been at the festival grounds in Squamish, BC most of the summer getting things ready for the exciting gathering coming up this weekend. Like most librarians of our time, Andrea spends most of the year organizing. But don’t get it twisted, this Librarian is not concerned with Dewey Decimals. As the artistic director at Bass Coast, Andrea is responsible to make sure that everything is in order, stacked neatly and correctly shelved. This job is particularly difficult considering that each artist in the Bass Coast lineup couldn’t be placed inside a box if we tried.
When she’s not working to provide us with one of the most musically diverse bass gatherings in the North West, the Librarian is sharing knowledge with those willing to listen. Through her dynamic style encompassing all genres of bass, the Librarian brings an energy unparalleled by any I can name. This mix incorporates flowing melodic rhythms with some future dub, juke, fancy footwork, and other sexy selections. Be aware before listening, this mix is sure to make you move.
We will be covering Bass Coast as media reps this year and cannot say how stoked we are. While tightly tuned and terrifically creative, the music and activities at Bass Coast are sure to serve us in our quest for knowledge and study of expression. See you there!

PSS :: BIG UP TO FRAGILE CASTLE FOR THE BASS COAST ART ABOVE!!
This tune is absolute fire! The repetitive and beautifully crafted wobbles Toki created for this tune leave a really smooth bounce in your step. Along with that new found bounce in your step you may find the need to start The Slug over a couple times. Don’t worry…you’re not the only who’s having these symptoms…
Welcome Self Help back to Ganjaology as we present his brand new piece of sound art, which is (as you may have already guessed) absolutely incredible. With the idea for this song stemming from an afro-funk sample and over a year of thought and hard work put into every aspect of this “afro-tropical-house” beat, Self Help has come to terms with his beautifully bassy creation and is calling his finalish draft, Gingko Biloba. Gingko Biloba also known as the Maidenhair Tree is a rare species of tree found in China that has no close living relatives and has been used in traditional medicinal practices in the past. Is it a coincidence this song, which contains healing powers of it’s own, carries the name of an ancient healing tree? I think not. Self Help is one aware being, and this is his medicine that he’s giving out to the world, through one of the most ancient forms of administration. Through Music. Enjoy this tune, it’s made up of nothing but love and positivity, and be sure to check back for more Self Help in the future!
