    The Halluci Nation

    Dubstep

    The Halluci Nation is real. 

    As they enter a new cycle, Bear Witness and Tim “2oolman” Hill of A Tribe Called Red are reintroducing themselves as The Halluci Nation, to reflect the evolution of their music and mission. The Halluci Nation, takes its name from a phrase coined by John Trudell, to describe the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be human. As a visionary artist and activist, Trudell recognized the connection between his accomplishments and what ATCR did intuitively through music and art. 

    Trudell’s voice was the first heard on Tribe’s last record, We Are The Halluci Nation, and will, fittingly, be the first you hear on The Halluci Nation’s upcoming record, One More Saturday Night. The album is a love letter to the Electric Pow Wow gatherings launched at Ottawa’s Babylon nightclub in 2007. It represents an imagined denouement to the biweekly Saturday-night parties that ended abruptly in 2017, without ever getting the proper send-off. One More Saturday Night thus pays homage to the parties’ energy and momentum that elevated The Halluci Nation to this pivotal point in their career of fully mastering their own music style while also moving beyond club music; or “mixing dance music with dance music,” as Bear Witness succinctly puts it. 

    We wanted to pay homage to the Electric Pow Wow and wrap that whole decade of experience up and close the cycle, and in doing so give direct coordinates of where the future was headed. In a nutshell, that’s what this album is about,” says Bear. “We just wanted to make a party record, as well, one that people could dance to while still having the strong message we are known for.” 

    As was the case with its proud legacy, The Halluci Nation’s future revolves around collaboration. From hip-hop star, Yasiin Bey (AKA Mos Def), to the Indigenous Australian band, OKA, to the Wayuu-Colombian powerhouse, Lido Pimienta, the group has always sought out artists from around the world who would join the Halluci Nation family to form a like minded community as well as an international indigenous alliance.  The upcoming record will be no exception – with features as inspired and unpredictable as the music from Texas “electro-cumbia” producer, El Dusty, Anishnaabeg drum group, Chippewa Travellers, Maori artist, Rob Ruha, Inuk singer, Tanya Tagaq, and round-dance/R&B singer Antoine, among many others.

    We wanted to take the music to another place,” says 2oolman. “We showed a little bit of our ambitious side on this record and we got to do a lot of songs that we’d been wanting to do for a long time. And this is just the beginning. I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard The Halluci Nation produce a project for someone else. We’ve got so much more coming.

    This is a beginning, not an end, after all. The Halluci Nation maintains focus on what they feel they can impact most: how Indigenous people are seen. Through groundbreaking stage shows and ever-changing visuals, Bear Witness and 2oolman are working to create media that reflects today’s Indigenous identity. By partnering with striking visual artists such as Whess Harman, Saige Mukash and Cedar-Eve Peters along with a growing community of musical collaborators. They see themselves simply as contributors to a necessary conversation around a subtle and complex representation of the contemporary Indigenous experience.

    Raised and rooted in Corpus Christi, producer, DJ, and nu-cumbia pioneer El Dusty translates the Southern Texas border experience into new barrio anthems where the MPC2000 sampler and chopped clips of Latin music history collide. Set to drop on September 18th, Trapanera EP marks the first of his collaborative projects since signing with Universal Records, new division AfterCluv, showcasing a turntablist tradition that links Latin classics with the new generation of bass-heavy soundsystem and hip-hop cultures.Trapanera EP is a true showcasing of El Dusty’s bi-cultural border identity and the cumbia crunk movement that he’s found a home in. Taking “Campanera” by Aniceto Molina, a Colombian cumbia artist who spent the last 30 years of his life in San Antonio, Texas, El Dusty teamed up with 3Ball MTY producer and tribal guarachero innovator Erick Rincón to create a track that’s production process was as digital as its sound. Since El Dusty and Erick were never able to meet for a real-time studio session, they worked onthe track by sending versions back and forth to each other online, ultimately creating a dramatic 3ball crunk track that highlights the irresistible cumbia sample and 808 drum patterns to ground the sound in the Southern hip-hop tradition. Trapanera EP is primed for the peak times of a tropical bass DJ set.The remix EP includes contributions from Dominican bass producer FreakyPhilip, 17-year old German producer Ghetto Vanessa lending a mid-tempo cumbia remix, Svani Quintanilla of Royal Highness’ deep tribal guarachero take, EDM remixes from Ricky Mears and Muzik Junkies, and iconic Trinidadian vocalist Angela Hunte serving up a high-energy vocal remixcalled “Mi Bunda,” which Happy Colors also remixes into a relentless crunk-hop track. El Dusty will embark on a tour to promote Trapanera EP, and soonto be released later this year, Cumbia Anthem, We Out Chea, where he’ll debut a newly-developed set that expands on his expertise as a long-timeturntablist with previous live appearances supporting the national tours forthe Kumbia Kings and Baby Bash & Frankie J, and appearances at the Latin Grammy Universal Party, Brisk Bodega Tour, Mad Decent Block Party Tour, Pachanga Fest, and more. The newest version of his set will debut El Dusty’s recently-developed live visual projections that he can mix and scratch over,and live percussionists to improvise over the DJ set.
