Shankara NZ is a duo from New Zealand (Brendan Evans and Elijah Wilson-Kelly) who have dedicated themselves to electronic downtempo beats with exotic influences. Fat bass pads, Indian sitar sounds and tabla - this is what most of the duo's productions sound like. But with the EP "Dawn Chorus“The two have taken a consequent step towards Dub made and a fascinatingly beguiling meditative one Dub- Factory delivered. I've often argued that genre outsiders are the most exciting Dub-Create productions because they don't care about conventions and their very special ones Dub- bring in specific skills. Shankara NZ is definitely about the unmistakable feeling for low-frequency vibrating, meditative beats, embedded in a soft, yet powerful sound - which by the way reminds me a lot of the International Observer (Tom Baily). "Dawn Chorus" - runs in the stream under the heading "Downtempo" - is well-kept for friends DubIt's definitely a real surprise and a perfect companion for cozy holidays in the dark season.
