Golden Dawn Arkestra

Golden Dawn Arkestra is...well, hard to explain in the terms of regular music, so I've borrowed this from their Facebook bio.
"The Golden Dawn Arkestra is an avant-garde collective combining deep grooves and cinematic textures. Adorned in shimmering regal robes remeniscent of intergalactic kingdoms of yore and featuring cosmic go-go dancers, The Golden Dawn Arkestra will keep your body moving on the dance floor while raising your consciousness past the outer most reaches of the cosmos."
