Dam Mantle – The drum is a house of spirit (07.27.12)

We are thrilled Dam Mantle is back on the dublab radar so soon after his stunning live “sprout session” found its way to our ears. This mix, made especially for dublab, is an exploration of rising rhythm. Dam Mantle celebrates the mysterious energy and sublime spells cast by drums when conjured by those who deeply feel. We know these patterns will resonate with you so enjoy this tool of transcendence.
