Track of the Week – Ganja White Night & Zeds Dead “Samurai”
Ganja White Night has been around for a while. They have brought their own brand to life the past few years and inspired a new genre all their own. They just released their 7th album, The Origins, a continuation from their previous concept album, Mr. Wobble. Hailing from Belgium, these two have the name “The Wobble Brothers” for a reason. Ganja White Night worked with several artists on the album including Caspa, Boogie T, Dirt Monkey and more. This week’s Track of the Week is their collaboration with Zeds Dead, “Samurai.”
“Samurai” deceives the listener with a soft yet powerful piano introduction. It’s near impossible to tell that the opening of this song could come from two electronic groups. The melody is cinema worthy and catches the ear quickly. Don’t let that smooth piano fool you. The song progresses and builds as a toe-tapping beat accompanies the piano opener. Soon, the beat breaks down and tones turn dark as a sinister build breaks into an unexpected drop. The metallic beat wavers back and forth with a slow and heavy pace.
Ganja White Night and Zeds Dead play a sort of call and response that continues throughout the remainder of the track, forcing the listener to bob their head. It’s almost impossible to sit still while listening to “Samurai.” The track has a low wobble to it that builds as the track moves along. By the middle to the end of the song, the listener is fully aware that some hardcore bass artists are behind it. The whole of The Origins is an experimental and unique ride that any bass lover will appreciate. Check out the Track of the Week below.
