DJ Red Buddha
„Create the Future“
With „Create the future“, the musician, DJ and music producer Red Buddha releases his 10rd album. Red Buddha proves once more that he has the feel for many Beats, Grooves ,Samples ethnical music-genres and knows to use these skilfully on this new release.
The difference between “Create the future” and his previous releases is that Red Buddha also uses House sounds, combined with electronic elements creating the musical base. Red Buddha worked on this production during the summer of 2018. His inspiration was rooted in the many journeys, particularly to Ibiza,Spain where the album was produced. Thus Red Buddha began to transport the various house and dance impressions of these cultures into his own western culture. During the process of constant change and revision, he created the suitable surrounding field for all the auditory impressions, interpreted them newly and completed the composition. It is important to Red Buddha to leave the instruments authentically and unaffected to give atmosphere the room it needs to unfold.
Electronic house lines are marvellously underlined by Guitar, Keyboards, Samples Flutes and rhythmically swelling percussion sounds of Djembes, Tablas, Bongos and Kongas. Around these rhythm-giving instruments climb melodious traditional string instruments of different cultures.
