Connect with the new eco-world music sound where Native drumming, exotic global instruments, guitars and chants blend with mystical trip hop beats and textures. Groove Tribe is the latest from David & Steve Gordon, creators of the international chill out series Buddha Lounge and native fusion hits such as Sacred Earth Drums and also features electronic music gurus, Alex Alyone, Noah Alexander and Bobby Cochran plus drum master Kim Atkinson. On this ground-breaking new album they use acoustic instruments like Native American flute, Pan Pipes, piano, guitar and vocals from their award-winning Native-influenced world music bestsellers like Drum Medicine and Shaman's Vision Journey and then combine them with electronic synthesizers, electronica grooves and song structures. The result is a mesmerizing and uplifting new remixed and revisioned Native sound that is great for anything from yoga to dancing, driving or parties. Experience worldbeat and chill out electronic music like you have never heard it before. At once earthy and spacey, organic and electronic - this is an ambient-techno shaman journey you won't want to miss!

DailyOM
The brothers David and Steve Gordon are an established world music force with their own label and copious production credits, but that never stopped them from recording albums that seem as fun and extemporaneous as a heavenly all-night outdoor music festival. "Groove Tribe" utilizes Native American tribal drumming as a base on which to expand and contract into dimensions where microcosm and macrocosm meet, David and Steve Gordon make the utmost of the spacious recording warmth with pan pipes and Native American flute soaring overhead while the drums and thick, phat bass root below to create a full on sound spectral holistic journey spectacular.

"Fire Dancer" opens things with Steve's flues and David's frame drums anchoring some growling synths that cohere into a bone-healing fuzz-box bass anchoring you to the earth's core. A beautiful simple four-note guitar line, reverberating chimes. Deep male chanting runs under "Hanub Ku Transmitter' while "Sacred Medicine" has a pleasantly ominous, irresistible bass line running under gradually accruing synthesizers. That bass is so awesome you'll want to know how it was recorded, but Steve notes its all in their studied and painstaking EQ mixing. The Gordons earn their Groove Tribe moniker for sheer bass phatness alone.

There's no question that Steve and David Gordon have been on the forefront of the world music scene for quite awhile, but what may blow your mind is just how far they continue to travel into the future and the past, into the mystic and onto the dance floor. Reconfigured through their brilliant fusion of sound mastering and solid groove-oriented playing, ancient sounds become futuristic. The Gordons enhance the perimeters of mind and sound in directions running back into the ancient past and forward into the 23rd century. "Groove Tribe" may be just one of many feathers in the Gordon brothers' headdresses, but it's a beautiful, irresistible and timeless piece of work. Just let that bass into your soul and the drums and flutes and guitars will take care of the rest. Exaltation is only a play button away, and freedom is as easy to find as the volume knob. Just turn it up and move into the groove.

Music Design In Review
David & Steve Gordon are back with another globe-trotting, foot-stomping musical odyssey that re-defines the word "groove." GROOVE TRIBE is an intersection of the pair's rhythmic drumming albums, like their best-selling SACRED EARTH DRUMS, and their electronic-themed Buddha Lounge compilations. In other words, it's the best of both worlds, offering smooth trip-hop beats and loungey synth atmospheres paired with organic instrumentation of the Southwest and beyond, like pan flutes, Native flutes, shakers, piano and guitar. The music has a relaxed quality that makes it ideal for entertaining, creating a laid-back environment or giving a special spark to movement-based activities like yoga or trance dance.
