Hailing from Cologne, Germany the Ancient Astronauts (Kabanjak and Doju) teamed up with The Pharcyde to cut this gem. With their Heart of the Future mixtape, the production duo demonstrates their ability to mix and mash funk, down tempo, dub and hip hop.
From old school hip hop legends, to new school deep beat masters, the mix skips in and out of genres lacing hints of reggae with thick slabs of funk, creating an overarching vibe of just damn good summer hanging music.
The name Ancient Astronauts arrives from a theory that extraterrestrial beings visited the Earth and exchanged ideas with early human civilizations. This in turn, spawned the development of human technologies, cultures, philosophies and religions. A fitting name for their musical palette. Back in June, they dropped We are to Answer under Thievery Corporation's Eighteenth St. Lounge (ESL) label. Its on my to listen list.
