“Lovers of bass music will be elated to know that the boys from Brussels will not be missing beat as they bring their incredible live show from shore to shore starting in February.”

– Dancing Astronaut

“The Belgium electronic music production duo known as Ganja White Night is raising the bar for music videos and the messages they can carry.”

“Benjamin Bayeul & Erwan Dodson have cooked up some sick bass productions for over ten years now, but what the experienced pair has planned next is by far one of their most impressive releases yet.”

-UKF

“Their absurd and frankly crazy style of bass music is one of the most unique approaches to electronic music that I’ve heard from basically anyone.”

New York, NY January 26, 2018 – On February 5th, Ganja White Night (Benjamin “Bamby” Bayeul and Charlie “Erwan” Dodson) release The Origins LP, featuring collaborations with Zed’s Dead, Caspa, Boogie T, and Dirt Monkey on their own label, Subcarbon Records. The album is accompanied by a narrative video series by renowned graffiti artist Ebo, who will join them on select dates of a new US  tour featuring Subcarbon label mates. Even though each concert on the tour will open with a B2B DJ set from the roster, GWN’s performance features live instrumentation, editing, remixing and improvisation more like a band playing only original material.
Inspired by composers like Hans Zimmer, Ganja White Night (aka the Wobble Brothers) create cinematic bass music that incorporates reggae, dub, hip-hop, and drum and bass with influences from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. “We have some inspirations that never change,” they say. “We’ve always been fans of ethnic sounds and ethnic voices, long intros, harmonies.” On The Origins this includes guest vocals from singer Simona Brezanova.
From languid introductions to intense party jams and downtempo grooves, the twelve tracks tell the story of Mr. Wobble, a superhero who creates music and the world he inhabits. Of the shifts in tone and tempo, the duo says, “Back in the day contrast was important, having a phrase answered by another one, it’s a discussion between two songs or grooves.”
They approach collaborations in the same poetic spirit. Teaming up with Caspa, in particular, was the fulfillment of an actual dream. After meeting at a show in Minneapolis in 2016 and beginning to work on a track via Skype, Ben relayed a story to Caspa. “At one point I said, ‘I have to tell you something, Gary. Ten years ago you came to Belgium and played a show in a small room…’ I was so close to the DJs I could almost touch them. I have this picture of him pointing at me. I showed him this picture and told him, I knew this would happen in a dream.’”
The collaboration with  Zeds Dead at one point felt like it wasn’t going to happen. “It was  too close to the deadline, there were too many edits.” Fortunately, both sides were down for the cause.  “There’s a lot of artists who will send you their part and say ‘Do what you want, we don’t care.’ But not in this case. There’s a huge email thread between us. I hope they like what we did because we do dubstep differently.”
Aside from telling the story of Mr. Wobble, another reason for the album’s title refers to its similarity to their debut. “We didn’t care about making ‘easy to mix’ tracks,” they say. “We did that again for this album. We thought some tracks need a universe. If it takes a two-minute intro to make the drop worth it, that’s what we do.” They also didn’t rush the album, which they began working on in the fall of 2016. “We try to release an album every year since we started in 2010. 2017 is the first year we didn’t do that because we were touring too much to make it happen on time,” they say.
Ganja White Night formed in Brussels and with support from an ardent community for a string of wall-rattling hits, the duo have become international sensations, a phenomenon sure to continue once The Origins drops. “I’m not the least bit hesitant to say that this new album is going to be the one that we’re the most happy about to date,” Ben promises.
