Music: Ras G & The African Space Program – Dance of the Cosmos

La-based musician Ras G is a legend within the global beat scene. His experimental production on albums like his 2013 masterpiece Back on the Planet, released on Brainfeeder Records, really changed the dynamic and the sound of LA at the time of its release, and saw Ras G become a legend in the scene. His newest release, Dance of the Cosmos brings influence from different genres, and represents a beautiful marriage between house music, afrobeat and electronic music.

At 4 tracks and 23 minutes long, the tracks on this project are full of energy and personality, as the beats throughout this album pulsate through my headphones, as the tribal samples and the signature “ohh Ras!” snippet provides a whole lot of character to the tape. Swirling synths, claps, and samples throughout tracks such as “Long Gone” and “Great Black Music” give the music such a raw aesthetic, as the deep house beat pulsates throughout, adding a dance-filled energy to the tone of this album. Overall, Ras G comes through with an excellent new album that all of you should support because it’s really great.
