In kiswahili, the word “Pangani” describes a place of spirits, where energy can be felt and vibrations make you move.
As a wizard of consciousness, Pangani fuses otherworldy soundscapes and deep basslines into adventurous psychedelic dub. Detailed synth work and crisp complex beat constructions are braided with flashes of vocals and acoustic instruments, to create bubbling and pressurized imaginary sound worlds.
Pangani is formed by Sebastian Frisch in 2014. His musical journey guided him through reggae bands, street-music in kenyan shanti towns, sound-art installations and various electronic music explorations all around the world. During his master studies, he started to develop his performance setup. Instruments like the foleyboard enable him to freely play in the moment and let his audience experience the magic of electronic live music in a one man band setup.
Pangani self-released two Albums Superdeep (2019) and In The Moment (2016) through crowdfunding campaigns. His tours brought him to many beautiful festivals like BOOM Festival [PT], Psy-Fi Festival [NL], TodaysArt Festival [NL] and Everness Festival [HU].
