Shamanic Technology is a communication in contemporary bass culture. Taking elements from the world of Neuro, Glitch, Breakbeat and Hip Hop; this is bassmusic that crosses genres and spans multiple tempos, where seamless elements combine across a backdrop of old-skool IDM nostalgia, dark basslines and glitch innovation.. Shamanic Technology is an ever-evolving exploration in sound experimentation. A collision of dynamic sound design, beat science and hypnotic melody.
Zenji is the primary moniker of Irish producer Aaron Gardiner. Citing his musical inspiration from pioneers as diverse as Culprate, Nobuo Uematsu, Panda Dub and Ratatat, Zenji's vibrant musicality and thoughtful arrangements find themselves unrestrained by boundaries and templates. A rich elixir of ethereal & emotive melodies, quirky & brutal basslines met with elaborate productions. This is hybrid electronic music as its finest, often brought to life through the bizarre characters in his dreams, conceptualized and re-imagined through soundscapes of the seemingly endless sub-genres he finds himself immersed in.
He has supported the likes of Datsik, Misanthrop, Joe Ford, Liquid Stranger, Getter, Point.Black and Noisestorm, released original music on labels such as Dub All or Nothing, Dubline Records and LU10 records. Receiving support from EDM.com for tracks like 'Lucille' and 'Cthulhu Dub VIP' on both the Dubstep.net and Glitchop.net channels, he continues to gain increasing global support for his creations from labels and producers alike.
A true alchemist of sound, breaking down his influences and concocting them into something entirely original and drawing his influence from Japanese sub-cultures, video- game soundtracks, Irish mythology and baroque music. Fusing them with elements of glitch hop, drum and bass, reggae and dubstep.
