World renowned producers Desert Dwellers join Yoga of Bass creator Claire Thompson for an Ecstatic Bass session complete with blacklight and big sound at Undercurrent Collective in Downtown LA. Opening with cutting-edge downtempo dub and bass music, crescendoing to dancefloor ecstasy, and back down to a Bass-Heavy sound healing, the Desert Dwellers musical journey is skillfully paired with Claire’s yoga asana, free movement, and deep stretch sequence and infused with inspiration and humor.
The evening starts with a short Yoga of Bass talk and meditation, and ends with community time with free Kombucha from TheBu Kombucha, fresh fruit and good tunes!

Yoga of Bass is Claire Thompson’s dynamic and evolving project that merges music, movement and meditation into mainstage DJ/Yoga/Dance experiences. Since 2010, festivals across the world have sought out Yoga of Bass to bridge their music and wellness offerings, including U.S. festivals Symbiosis, Lightning in a Bottle and Wanderlust, Canada’s Shambhala and Astral Harvest, Glade Festival United Kingdom, Luminate New Zealand, Wonderfruit Thailand, and Australia’s Rainbow Serpent, Earth Frequency, Wanderlust, and Subsonic. In Yoga of Bass, Claire brings together her 16 years of practice and study of the body through massage therapy, yoga, and dance, her 10 year study of Buddhism and meditation, and her love of music and singing background to create a unique experience of body, breath and mind that is both lighthearted and deeply transformational.

Desert Dwellers consists of Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe, who began their careers as independent music producers and DJs in the deserts of New Mexico and California. Coming together in the late ’90s after connecting through the legendary Moontribe scene, today the duo enjoys a reputation as one of the most pioneering and prolific downtempo, psy-bass, and tribal trance acts in the United States. Desert Dwellers have toured extensively across six continents, spent a 7-week stretch on the road with renowned psychedelic artist Shpongle, and have performed at dozens of festivals, most notably Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, Envision, Coachella, Rainbow Serpent, and Boom. Taking a new approach to digital production, Amani and Treavor have combined the raw sounds of the natural world while skillfully blended deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and cross-cultural instrumentation into sonic incense for the mind and body. Bringing the electronic music vibe to the yoga scene, and the sounds of yoga to the electronic dance scene, Desert Dwellers’ global sounds are the bridge between the worlds of dance and movement.
