Ancient Astronauts Cliche Filled New Release Announcement

(PR) This Tuesday, June 9th, ESL Records will be dropping the Ancient Astronauts intergalactic masterpiece and debut full length 'We Are To Answer'.

Marking a foray into new territory for ESL, 'We Are To Answer' drifts back to an epic era of experimentation within the world of hip-hop production.

A time when melody laced the beat, and tracks were journeys into the listeners subconscious. It was the Mo'Wax era, the Grand Royal era, a moment in musical history where worlds were audibly colliding on the turntables, headphones, and MPC 2000's of every bedroom producer and hip-hop head around the world.

Having already built a huge following with their remixes for Fort Knox Five, Up Bustle & Out, Ladybug Mecca of Digiable Planets, Zion I, and Dr. Rubberfunk, the duo has spent the last year putting their cosmic production skills to use crafting their genre splicing debut, 'We Are To Answer'. Featuring vocal collaborations with Bootie Brown and Imani of legendary hip hop group the Pharcyde, Azeem, Tippa Irie, Bajka, Phat Old Mamas, Ulf Stricker, Raashan Ahmad and Entropik, 'We Are To Answer' finds the production duo of Kabanjak and Dogu resting comfortably next to their influences, as opposed to following them.

Upon their return to Earth, Kabanjak and Dogu quickly set up a terrestrial sound studio, a record label (Switchstance Recordings), and a successful production, remixing, and DJ career dropping sound bombs all over the world. Just as their name, "Ancient Astronauts" implies a mash-up of the distant past and the far future, the tracks on the album exhibit a melding of massive atmospheric planetary beats with forward-thinking flair and production technique. The end result is a stunning debut, a genre re-defining album.
