The new 4 track EP, 'Four Keys to Zen', portrays a new direction for Mashed Buddha, who's sublime, orchestrated grooves have thus far lacked one thing: Improvisation. John Corda, the sole musician responsible for Mashed Buddha, performs professionally as a keyboard player in soul/funk/latin bands. Whereas debut album "Subdue Your Mind" was an experiment in electronica composition, 'Four Keys to Zen' and upcoming full length album "Zen Conspiracy" are a collection of layered funk, drum n bass and downtempo grooves that allow for jamming keyboard solos.
1) Hype - featuring the voice of legendary guru of all things enlightening and bender of spoons Uri Geller waxing hypnotic over a chill yet driving groove.
2) Mystery Dropper - Organic drum n bass combined with sick keyboard chops.
3) Spikes - from Mashed Buddha's debut effort "Subdue Your Mind," this is a descending drum n bass pattern that evolves and replicates. Spiky, like crazy Aunt Mable's cookout punch.
4) Temptation - Damn funky catchy clav electronica.
