Hey friends, we continue our monthly charts! As you might remember, we offer artist, dj’s and other dedicated chillout lovers to express their taste and present us they favourite tracks. An artist has an opportunity to select the tracks or releases, he can sort them in an alphabetical or any other order. So this time this artist is Damon, Dj from Chillumafia collective (Poland/India/USA). Stay chilled!
Damon started spinning records in the mid 90s being involved in the acid techno/hard energy scene (and later nu school breaks and goa trance) in Poland. Moving to Chicago in 2000 he connected to the sound oozing out of the West Coast. The slow breaks resonating on the Playa@Burning Man defined a shift to the downtempo psychedelic spectrum. In 2005 he met Yidam from India and Robyo from the States both chillout DJs. The three of them started playing back to back at parties in the Midwest. Being notorious for their opinion on sound and spinning darker heavier dubby sounds on the chill stage they started being referred to as the Chillumafia. Of course the name stuck and the organizers included the Chillumafia affiliation.
Chillumafia sound today is a mix of hedonistic grooves from the West and chill beats from the East expressed with a range of styles from ambient to dance, from traditional to futuristic, bringing remixes, live production and guest musicians into the sound system.
