EarthRise SoundSystem is the shared musical vision of producer David “Duke Mushroom” Schommer and DJ/writer/yogi Derek Beres. Utilizing Duke’s multi-instrumental background and worldly percussion with Derek’s concepts of “Global Beat Fusion,” these 2 started collaborating energies to create music for movement in late 2008. In 2010 they released their first full length album, The Yoga Sessions: EarthRise SoundSystem (Yoga Organix/White Swan), which has garnered praise by the NY Times, Yoga Journal, MTV, Boston Globe, Yoga International, LA Yoga and many others. As remixers, ERSS has re-worked such talent as Vieux Farka Toure, Femi Kuti, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Natacha Atlas, Nickodemus, Deva Premal, MC Yogi and others
When the two ERSS members first joined together to remix a song by popular mantra singer Deva Premal, they set out to create a new paradigm as to what ‘yoga music’ meant. The result was a percussively rich, organically spacious and dubby soundscape. This approach laid the foundation for their full length album -a collection of 21st century electronically inspired yet organically grown original music that could very well redefine one’s notions of “yoga music.”
Taz Rashid (DJ TAZ) brings a high vibrational energy to any room instantly by mixing the beats and rhythms of Love, Ancient New World, House, Kirtan, Devotional, and all the cosmic sounds. His vision is to be a channel to cause the expansion of all those around by tapping into the creative wisdom of the body and allowing them to feel, let go and awaken. He has been producing and part of creating conscious events in the midwest over the last few years and as a musician, he plays guitar, keyboard, Native American Flute, didgeridoo and hand percussion. He takes these instruments and connects to the Divine and what comes through has the ability to move his crowd to connect to their Divine higher selves. Recently he has been performing and DJing at events such as Bhakti Fest, Serendipity Festival, Denver Chant Fest, Lightworkers Midwest Conference, Greenheart Transforms, Bodhi Spiritual Center and many more conscious gatherings. In Chicago, he and his team produce Club Divine a monthly spiritual dance party with high vibrational DJs, healers, body workers, artists and amazing musicians.
