Aligning Minds is the unique and captivating collaboration of two producers using sound to achieve a mutual vision. Ethereal and dubby, uplifting and haunting, their music winds its way through the imaginative souls of its listeners, offering a deep exploration of subsonic mood and emotional atmosphere. Focused on unifying electronic music through diverse influence, their sound fuses elements of many genres like downtempo, dubstep, breakbeat and idm, but without the need for formulaic restrictions.
The Aligning Minds sound is melodic and bass heavy. It’s emotionally charged future music that rides on hypnotic breakbeats, infectious basslines, dubby soundscapes, and idm experimentation for one to dance or lounge to.
Through both mastering their studio skills and live improvisational performances, Aligning Minds have been gaining interest and support from all over the global spectrum of electronic music. They've collaborated and performed with and alongside artists as varied as Edit, OTT, Headhunter, Shpongle, Benga, Skream, Shen, Robert Manos, Miles Tillman, Jimmy Edgar and the list continues. Intent on reaching a musical standpoint of balance and harmony between stylistic ideas, they move forward as a musical force with an ethic of positive growth and change. Currently, they are focusing on their upcoming live performance dates and release schedule, which will set the mark for a very bright future to come. For 2009 they are working on a full length album for Aleph Zero Recordings, an EP for Native State Records, and preparing for many upcoming summer festival and club dates, while maintaining their residencies at the now infamous X/Pulse event in Washington D.C (www.xindc.tv), and the more recent PLD(Producers, Labels, DJ's) at the Muse nightclub in DC.
Their vision expands beyond just music the current aim of the Aligning Minds “movement” is to take their sound - and to share it, to cross stylistic and creative boundaries, to unite people and their ideas, to spread the seed of common understanding - and to drop some muthaf---in’ bass in the process. All ideals aside, this is music from the imaginations, hearts and souls of two producers who want to use music to unite people and assist in positive growth and change.
