Israel Vibrations

Israel Vibration are a reggae harmony group, originaly from Kingston, Jamaica. Lascelle « Wiss » Bulgin, Albert « Apple Gabriel » Craig, and Cecil « Skelly » Spence all overcame childhood polio, and went on to be one of the most successful roots groups to form in Jamaica in the 1970s. The trio initially met as children at a rehabilitation center. Bulgin (born 1955), Craig, and Spence (born 1952) first met as children at the Mona Rehabilitation Clinic, all sufferers of polio in the epidemic that spread through Jamaica in the 1950s, but it was several years later that they formed Israel Vibration. Craig attended the Alpha Boys School but ran away at the age of fourteen, living on the streets. Spence was a member of the band Hot Lickers, appearing on Jamaican television with the group at the age of twelve. He also played in the Jamaican wheelchair basketball team, but was forced out in 1969 after adopting the Rastafarian faith, something which the three had in common when they were later reunited. Spence and Craig got together in Kingston and sought out Bulgin, who at the time was working as a tailor. They formed a vocal group, initially adopting the name Israel Vibration Israel Vibrates, soon becoming simply Israel Vibration. They survived on money earned singing in the streets for several years, and in 1975 attempted to launch a recording career at Channel One Studios, but the track they recorded there (« Bad Intention ») was not released. Funding for their first album came in the form of a grant from the Twelve Tribes of Israel branch of Rastafarai after Hugh Booth, a member of the Twelve Tribes, had overheard the three men singing in a wooded area outside Kingston. Apple and Wiss were living in the area, which they had converted into a home. Recorded at the Treasure Isle studio in 1976, their debut release was the single « Why Worry », released on the Twelve Tribes label late that year. The single was successful enough for the group to be offered support slots at shows by artists such as Dennis Brown, Inner Circle, and Bob Marley. They then began working with producer Tommy Cowan, releasing « The Same Song » (on which they were backed by members of Inner Circle) on his Top Ranking label in 1977, and an album of the same name followed in 1978. The album, and its dub counterpart, Israel Tafari (aka Same Song Dub) were a success internationally, leading to a deal with EMI label Harvest to reissue the album in the UK, the label also releasing a second album,Unconquered People in 1980. For their third album, Why You So Craven (the title track aimed at their former producer Cowan), they worked with Henry « Junjo » Lawes but disagreements meant that they left the album unfinished, with Lawes getting The Tamlins to complete it. The group relocated to New York in 1982 to seek professional health care, and escape the growing dancehall movement in Jamaica, but struggled to break through there and they split up. They each attempted to launch solo careers, with Bulgin releasing the Mr Sunshine album in 1985, but by 1987 they decided to relaunch Israel Vibration. Having all been turned down when they approached Gary « Dr. Dread » Himmelfarb, founder of RAS Records, during their solo period, they received a positive response when they approached him as a group. They were flown to Washington, D.C. to record a new album at the Lion and Fox Recording Studios in College Park, Maryland, backed by the Roots Radics. Strength of my Life was the group’s fourth album. The band stayed with RAS into the 21st century, releasing more than a dozen albums for the label. In 1997, Apple Gabriel left the group to pursue a solo career, releasing the album Another Moses in 1999. Skelly and Wiss continue to record albums and tour the world as Israel Vibration, backed by longtime associates Roots Radics. In December 2014 they were reportedly recording a new album set for release in early 2015. The new album, entitled « Play It Real » was released on 31 March 2015 via Utopia.

Big Gigantic

Consisting of drummer Jeremy Salken and saxophonist and producer Dominic Lalli, Big Gigantic is an electronic dance act based in Boulder, Colorado. Armed with muscular beats and basslines and loads of screeching and squealing synthesizer lines, they quickly connected with the festival circuit. Salken and Lalli performed at Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Ultra Music Festival, among other events. From 2009 through 2012, the duo released three albums — Fire It Up, A Place Behind the Moon, and Nocturnal — on their own. The gradual development of their boisterous sound continued on the 2014 release The Night Is Young, another party-ready amalgamation of EDM, contemporary rap production, and pop. The single “Get on Up” followed in 2015. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi Billboard.com

Humboldt Bike Film Festival
Nov 30 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Revolution Bicycles and ATL present the Humboldt premier of Filmed by Bike and Singletrack High in this all-ages benefit for the Humboldt Composite High School Mountain Bike Club (HCMTBC).

Doors open at 6pm.
Tickets: $15 general admission/$10 for all students, available at Revolution Bicycles and from HCMTBC students. Tickets available at the door unless otherwise sold out. All proceeds go to support HCMTBC.

Founded in 2003, Filmed by Bike showcases the best of the best of short bike films from across cultures and continents at their annual Portland Film Festival in May. From there, these films go on tour to delight audiences across the globe. The documentary film Singletrack High will open this fun, adventure-filled night, and highlights the incredible impact of high school mountain biking on kids.

Singletrack High

At the age of 16, many American kids trade in two wheels for four. Trusty steeds that once gave them freedom to explore on weekends now collect dust in the garage. For a growing number of high school students in Northern California, however, two wheels don’t get dusty, they get dirty. Their lives continue to revolve around weekend rides, but now those rides have a finish line. These are the student athletes of the NorCal High School Cycling League. This is Singletrack High.

Jai Wolf

“Breaking the mold before it’s even set is nothing new for indie-electronic artist Jai Wolf, better known to some as Sajeeb Saha. Born in Bangladesh, raised in New York City, inspired by everything from hip-hop to classical music to punk rock, both his life and music have been defined by an amorphous quality that only a third culture kid could understand. The fact that Jai Wolf never quite fit in used to be fuel for his daydreams, now it’s what makes him one of the most exciting electronic artists of his generation.
It was Skrillex himself who plucked Jai Wolf from obscurity when he came across the then- fledgling bedroom producer’s bootleg of “Ease My Mind” in 2014. The OWSLA boss was so impressed that he signed the track for release and dropped it into heavy rotation in headline sets around the world, beginning with Glastonbury in the UK. From that point, Jai Wolf was a fixture at major stateside festivals, developing a reputation as a master remixer, often mentioned in the same breath as Flume and ODESZA in that wave of 2015 future bass. It was the kind of year of which most bedroom producers only ever dream, but Jai Wolf’s real breakout moment was just about to hit.”’Indian Summer’ was the first time I ever tried sampling South Asian music. I had no expectations. I thought it was a strange, weird song,” Jai Wolf smiles, looking back on his unique path to stardom. Since then, that “strange, weird” track has taken over the world, racking up tens of millions of streams, a major GoPro ad campaign, appearing on American Idol, and even soundtracking one of Kobe Bryant’s final basketball games in the NBA. The song made Jai Wolf a star, but creatively, he was already looking towards bigger and better things. The success of “Indian Summer,” a track that leans more indie than EDM, was the catalyst to a major change in Jai Wolf’s perspective. He decided to ditch the drops and focus on crafting songs with depth, with meaning and melody. He signed to indie darling label Mom + Pop Music, placing himself alongside the likes of Flume, Jagwar Ma, and Wavves. The result was the debut Kindred Spirits EP in 2016, a record that stunned critics and signaled the birth of Jai Wolf the songwriter, the live performer, the indie-tronic artist. The EP somehow merged the sweet melodies of 80s synth-pop with the atmosphere and grandiosity of EDM, the intimacy and closeness of chillwave, and the thoughtful introspection of indie-rock. It’s a busy brew, but an easy listen, and it was the sound of Jai Wolf finding his voice. “I like writing songs that have a duality,” he says. “A complexity of feeling that takes you to a melancholy, reflective space.” The creative release of Kindred Spirits and the deep connection Jai Wolf has forged with his worldwide fanbase has strengthened his sense of mission. “I really want to make honest music that people can relate to, can escape into. I don’t want to make music that’s just for the sake of being popular or trendy. I want people to really get lost in the world that I create,” he says. “My music is for people who are desperately dreaming beyond where they are at right now — it can be the future, it can be the past. I want you to feel nostalgic. I want you to reflect on your life. I also want you to be inspired about where your life could go.” The story of Jai Wolf so far is more than the hits, the packed dancefloors, or co-signs by mega-stars. There’s a message within it. “It’s really easy to feel like you need to follow trends, the blueprint,” he says. “But over the past three years I’ve learned that you shouldn’t try to emulate anybody. You can take the elements you like and find a way to speak them through your own voice. That’s the only way you’ll ever truly express yourself honestly.” It’s a lesson for artists and fans alike, and a hint of what’s to come for Jai Wolf. With his first ever LP impending in 2018, it seems that this story— one that spans the globe and genres alike — is just beginning…” ~ Official Bio.

Elohim

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Elohim crafts electronic pop veiled in mystery that puts the focus on her music. Finding artistic freedom in anonymity, the artist keeps her face hidden, masks her voice in interviews, and keeps all but a few personal details to herself, like the fact that she began playing piano at the age of five and started singing at nine. Influenced in equal measure by Rachmaninov and Debussy as Radiohead and Björk, Elohim’s resulting output is hook-savvy, hip-hop-influenced synth pop in the vein of Lorde and Grimes. Making her debut in 2015, Elohim released the singles “She Talks Too Much” and “Xanax,” both of which appeared on her debut EP, Elohim. “Hallucinating” followed in 2016, marking a shift in sound that expanded her sonic palette by including horns and even a mariachi flair. In 2017, Elohim released the singles “Skinny Legs” and “Sleepy Eyes,” a collaboration with Whethan. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, allmusic.com

“A DIY project with worldwide scope, Slow Magic is universal and inclusive. It’s cosmic electronic music culled from the ether, yet crafted with human hands. It’s joyous, escapist, multi-disciplinary art that mixes transcendent performance with the nostalgic intimacy of two teenagers staying up too late on the phone.” ~ FaceBook.
