Review: NYC business: Deeper Vision Ted Ganung teams up with one of the most distinctive and melodic voices in the bass game - David Boomah. Adding a little of his signature island magic and a heavy dose of clavs and mysticism, Ganung's beats are the perfect playground for David's dulcets as we're taking on a conscious trip into the junglist ether. Let's care for each other.
Review: Ted Ganung conquers the weight of the world in this uplifting release on Liquid Brilliants. Shuffling drums, rolling beats and swooning vocals are in merry abundance in the title track, which features Dirty Genes and Mariella, and this one rolls along for the duration. Lovely stuff. "What Eyes Can't See" up next, is a bit more of a coy one, with quirky SFX, thumping drum kicks and a pumping Cyantific-style melody, which adds a turbo charge of energy to the piece and demands some dancefloor action. Compelling stuff here from Ted Ganung.
Review: In twenty years we will be able to look back and wholeheartedly agree, that there really haven't been many vocalists more consistent that the inevitable Macka B, who here teams up with Ted Ganung for another conscious message in 'Stop It, idiot Ting', a stripped back percussive display, perfect for delivering it's potent meaning. The release also comes complete with a sack of high profile remix additions, with the likes of Jack & Jointz, Roommate, P Skinna, Mukiyare, Anthony Granata and Re-Load all supplying various alterations exploring a wide range of genres and sounds, allowing Macka's important words to be heard in nearly any environment imaginable!
Review: Next up from the Deeper Vision Recordings team we see a very highly rated link up as the world renowned Macka B teams up with the super exciting Ted Ganung for a stripped back piece of musical poetry with 'Stop It, Idiot Ting'. This one really does strip the island sound back to its most basic form as floating guitar plucks are aligned with tripletted percussive drips and a subtle bassline to deliver an introspective message. Macka B is known for his storytelling ability, and he's pulled it off again with some quite charming indeed.
Review: Indulging in forms of dancehall and reggae to lovers rock, deep house, balearic strings and downtempo grooves, New Yorker Ted Ganung arrives on Kraak with Instrumental Insight. Turning in a solid four-track dose for the Greek label, Ganung throws down some mean strides of urban street and hip hop flavours in "New Kicks" next to some rhode-driven and summer, tropical twang in "Oracle". Feel the breeze. Subtle R&B elements next to some wobble dubstep bass make it into "Truthfulness" with tougher two step vibes in lead track "Instrumental Insight". Get some.
Review: An EP/album hybrid from versatile, soul-fused Chicago singer GGoodei and NYC dub doyen Gangung. GGoodei's vocals sit somewhere between Charlemagne and Chickaboo while Ted's beats range from pumping timeless house ("Open My Eyes") to smoky hip-hop ("Conflict In Me") to classic Goodlooking style jungle rollers ("Everyday I Wonder"). The bulk of the work, however, is straight up drum & bass. Bright, breezy and liquid-edged from the fluttering horns and purring sub of "The Writings On The Wall" to the crystalline guitar slides of "Hold You Close", Gangung and GGoodei's partnership works perfectly.
