artist: Darla Smoking
album: Big Bug
Darla Smoking is a new musical project, formed by two experienced musicians – one is controlling the rhythms, the other electronics, samples and smokey soundscapes. Brewing inside this dub-based entity are elements of history and modernity, while at the same time Darla embodies a thousand distinctive voices from all over the globe.
Travel through them to the bloody river banks of Mississipi or colourful Bollywood sceneries, explore hidden dark corners of the Orient or observe some African tribes dancing and shouting their war cries. Darla’s first full length thus also serves as a reminder of a vital and important part of the Earth, reminder of a world that so often looks distant and remote and we are so often forgetting.
The palette of Big Bugs’ buzz paints a broad spectrum of colours and moods – get immersed in sometimes brooding and dark, sometimes lustrous and dance-oriented fusion of dub, electronica, ethno and world music. Let’s dub together at the Big Bug promo concert in Gala Hala, Metelkova on 18th May, 2017!
