Engine-EarZ Experiment are a musical collective born out of the Dubstep scene in early 2009 centering around acclaimed multi-instrumentalist/scorer/dj/producer Prashant Mistry.
Growing up in Britain with Asian roots, Prash had always sought to reconcile his varied musical influences from The Prodigy and Rage Against The Machine through to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Talvin Singh. Indeed, working towards Engine-EarZâ€™s debut album the focus is to smash glass divides between genres and ideologies; fusing indigenous musics from around the world with elements of dubstep, drumâ€™nâ€™bass, electronica and rock.
On December 14th Engine-EarZ Experiment release their debut limited edition release, an instrumental double bill on vinyl & download; â€˜Kaliyugaâ€™ backed up by â€˜Introspectorâ€™.
Through remixing artists from Sean Paul through to Basement Jaxx, the collective has already drawn attention across the entire BBC Radio network, with plays from the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Ras Kwame, Mary-Anne Hobbs, Nerm & D-Code, Tom Robinson, Friction, Nihal with a second BBC Maida Vale session having just taken place in December with Mista Jam for 1XTRA.
Engine Earz Experiment have started to make a name for themselves both as djs and a live set included playing alongside a list that boasts Caspa, Rusko, Shy FX, Skream, Benga as well as headlining spots at the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2009 and the London Mela.
So with growing support from fans and critics alike, some big remixes and festivals in the pipeline, and an album to drop in 2010, it looks like things are only getting started for the Engine-EarZ Experiment!
