Do you know Knowa Knowone?

The first time I saw Knowa Knowone it was 9:00 AM in the morning I was at Burning Man I had been up for two days and was still about four miles form camp. Knowa Knowone did such a good job I stayed for the whole set before making the trek back to camp. This is someone you should definitely check out! Here is a bit of info about his new EP "Noble Savage".

Street Ritual, LowPro Lounge and 1320 Records Present:

Noble Savage EP Vol. 1
by Knowa Knowone

The term "noble savage" expresses the idealized concept of the natural man and the innate goodness of one not exposed to the corrupting influences of civilization. The Noble Savage EP is an expression of the conflict between nature and western society as well as the fusion of modern music technology and indigenous music technique.

Taking influence from all over the world, Noble Savage starts out on the Big Island of Hawaii, with a psychedlic surf dub jam featuring The Laboratory and guitar of Open Mike. Track two is a Dubstep version of a latin Cumbia from Colombia. It then moves into deeper and darker spaces with the title track Noble Savage feating the keyboardist Makila, and the danceable, arabian influenced, Sands of Allah. The final track, "Bass Tribe 2012" is a neo-tribal experimental piece used in performances by the Dakini Temple's Elizabeth Bast.

"We abhor that brutality which, under the gaudy names of ambition and glory, . . . sheds the blood of men who are all brothers."
