“Ganga has been making incredible music for years and their finest moments have been truly outstanding…pure quality.” Pete Gooding 

KID Recordings welcomes accomplished Danish composer, producer  and downtempo/chill-out lounge doyen GANGA (aka CHRISTIAN RØNN) to its roster with the release of his debut US EP, FORGET GRAVITY (released NOVEMBER 29).

RØNN first made his debut as GANGA in 2005, releasing I Dream About Trees on influential Danish label MUSIC FOR DREAMS, known for an eclectic roster of artists (including Kenneth Bager, Bliss, Aura, Banzai Republic, Hess Is More and Lulu Rouge) and compilation series including Folk Not Folk and Luftkastellet.  In 2007, he launched his own Flinc Music label and released three beautiful albums: Don’t Wake Me Up (2007), More Light Please (2009) and Gaia (2010). To date, his tracks have appeared on over 100 compilations worldwide including ‘BUDDHA BAR’, ‘REAL IBIZA’, ‘CAFÉ MAMBO’, ‘HED KANDI : SERVE CHILLED’ and ‘THE SUNSET LOUNGE’.

Increasingly in-demand as a DJ, composer, producer and live performer, Christian’s genre-defying downtempo DJ sets have brought him as far as Buddha Bar in Dubai, as well as several Ibizan hotspots including the legendary Café Del Mar. And obviously he plays out regularly at home in Copenhagen, where he’s frequently to be found seducing discerning club-goers.

As a composer and live performer, GANGA has collaborated with some of the most influential Danish performers (Hanne Boel, Peter Peter) and appeared several times at Roskilde Festival in Denmark providing live, original soundtracks for – amongst others – Fritz Lang’s silent sci-fi classic Metropolis and Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin.

With FORGET GRAVITY, RØNN creates an intoxicating, narcotic soundscape with a sharp intellect whose DNA is truly global. Recorded in Copenhagen and Goa, India, the 6-track EP layers sensuous Balearic rhythms with dub–deep basslines, blissed-out vocals and string-drenched lushness (reflecting Asian, Latin and Nordic influences) conjuring widescreen vistas that are glacially cool and skin-prickingly sensual; deep and weightless as its title suggests.

Heavy on melody and atmospherics that are crisp and luscious, bright and beautifully blurry; the set features fetching vocal and musical performances from all corners of the world: Anwar Ahmed Khan and his brother Naushad Hussain Khan, both from India, perform on “Clouds,” together with regular Ganga collaborator Helle Chirholm; Annemarie Zimakoff’s delicate vocals adorn two cinematic slow-burners “Secrets” and “Are You Hiding”; Steen Kyed (The Great Danes) lends languid guitar to the hypnotic groove of “Yellow Leaves”; “This Time” – the one previously released track, a standout on 2010’s Gaia album – features the smoky tones of acclaimed Bay Area vocalist Scheherazade Stone.
