Every Wednesday at The Stage, Massive Ideas will be bringing you a stellar lineup of local and national producers/bands from the forefront of the electronic music scene! This week we're excited to be bringing GOVINDA back to The Stage, as well as DUSTHEAD!
Govinda is the alter ego of Austin-based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas, where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin from mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.
Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and has been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge, selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and many others. Govinda’s music has been licensed on shows like “Roswell” WB, “Road Rules” MTV, and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” Bravo as well as many independent films.
The Govinda live show is truly a multi-sensory experience that features professional dancers, live projections, resonating vocals and sonic soundscapes. His live experience is full of vibrant energy that plays to its crowd. Govinda performs on Ableton Live accompanied by classical violin. Govinda is currently touring in support of his latest album “Resonance” which was released independently in September 2012.
The musical performances of Dusthead are strongly influenced by ancient sounds and orchestral compositions fused together with futuristic technological realms. Both ancient sounds and next level electronic patterns are embodied into one timeless frequency meant to inspire the awakening of the higher self.
Dusthead has worked with string quartets, sitar players and opera singers; arranging music which defies all barriers, genre’s and labels, creating in constant change and movement, and leaving the audience curious for the next possibility plucked out of the infinite spectrum of the auditory universe.
