THE MELTING POT - Featured Artist - DRUMSPYDER
Bringing the drums to bellydancers, yogis, and the global dancefloor, Drumspyder weaves the rhythms and tonalities of the Mediterranean and the rhythmic energy of live Arabic percussion into a distinctively sleek and funky style of dance fusion.
Upcoming live appearances include "Awakenings" with the Desert Dwellers in Portland 7/19. Tracks slated for release in 2012 include 3 remixes of the Desert Dwellers on White Swan and Desert Trax, and 2 new bellydance-oriented tracks on the Caravan label.
His debut album "Kytheria" was released on Dakini Records in 2010, and his tracks and remixes have appeared on labels such as Six Degrees, Wonderwheel, Desert Trax, and Caravan, in addition to numerous bellydance DVDs. As percussionist and remixer he has collaborated with some of the most notable figures in global dance fusion, including the Nickodemus, the Spy from Cairo, Makyo, and Jef Stott.
