Chai’s is hosting a one of a kind experience on Thursday night when they bring Ancient Astronauts to Charleston for their S.C. debut. Hailing from Köln, Germany — or deep space (no one’s really sure) — this duo mixes old school funk, hip-hop, and reggae with futuristic thinking and production technique to create a sound that’s quite different from other musical groups. The two main Astronauts, Kabanjak and Dogu, started their own label, Switchctance Recordings, to encourage artist under the label to follow their musical influences from several different genres including funk, jazz, and Latin. They’ve remixed for Fort Knox Five, Up Bustle & Out, Ladybug Mecca (of Digable Planets), Zion I, and Dr. Rubberfunk, and they have linked up with a variety of collaborators, including Bootie Brown and Imani of hip-hop group The Pharcyde. —Caitlyn Chimento
