All You Need is BASS

Motion Notion 2013 Lineup Announcement (part 1)

Motion-Notion-2013

Motion Notion’s name conjures up the idea of movement, the notion that motion is the essence of Being, the flux of the universe. Having just released half of their set list, this years MoNo is already tantalizing our festival-feelers and getting all of us here at AYNiB very excited for their upcoming event!

Here are a few of AYNiB’s top picks:

Desert Dwellers: Growing out of the Moontribe gatherings of SoCal and Northern New Mexico, producing sounds encompassing a variety of downtempo electronica, from progressive-tribal to glitch to psybient. These fine fellows are tuned in, making mixes full of intention, consciousness, and creativity. Catch their set for dancefloor awakenings.

The Funk Hunters: Four turntables strong the Funk Hunters entertain the eye and ear with custom synched visuals and creative live mashups. A veritable potpourri of genres, this group defies definition, though you’re sure to be pleased by their mix of hip hop, house, glitch hop, drum and bass, and all the good stuff in between. The Funk Hunters create original sets never replicated, so catch their set at MoNo 2013 for once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Downlink: This BC homeboy gives us what we want. Bass junkies, don’t miss this DJ. Full of bass drop anticipation, unexpected details, and beats that make you feel like getting low, Downlink is consistently surprising his audience with new material, pushing the edge of sound technology. Adrenaline-pumping, frantic and fun, his style of music is inspired by jungle and DnB. Prepare yourselves for a heavy listening experience.

The psychadelic dub stylings of Desert Dwellers and Kaminanda charge our spirits, getting us uplifted and weightless; we’ll  be blaming the bounce in our step and the smiles on our faces on JPOD and the Funk Hunters; and the face-melting bass of Deiselboy and Downlink will bring us heavy back to earth, awakening our down and dirty inner animals. Some others that have been chosen to move us, groove us, and soothe us at MoNo this year include Canadian favorites and international celebrities; take a look, take a listen to the first half, and we’ll get the second half to you ASAP:
