Who are Darla Smoking?
It’s a new musical project, formed by two experienced musicians – one is controlling the rhythms, the other electronics, samples and smokey soundscapes. Brewing inside this dub-based entity are elements of history and modernity, while at the same time Darla embodies a thousand distinctive voices from all over the globe.
Travel through them to the bloody river banks of Mississipi or colourful Bollywood sceneries, explore hidden dark corners of the Orient or observe some African tribes dancing and shouting their war cries. The palette of Big Bugs’ buzz paints a broad spectrum of colours and moods – get immersed in sometimes brooding and dark, sometimes lustrous and dance-oriented fusion of dub, electronica, ethno and world music.
