Premiere: Kora & Wuachuma – NaaviKora Wuachuma Naavi Premiere

Hoj and Lee Burridge have picked a fine set of collaborators to help finish Tale + Tone‘s 2018 on a strong note. In Synergy, two pairs of caliber underground talent have fashioned complementary tunes that each pack a delectable melodic punch per the label’s aesthetic. Our focus is on Kora and Wuachuma’s contribution, “Naavi,” which serves to remind us that the two make a seamless pairing.

In a similar vein to their “Nuit D’Afrique” collaboration, the two burgeoning talents base “Naavi” in a tribal foundation, building a mysterious piece around it with choice vocal samples and celestial synth melodies that cut through a dense harmonic layering. The track feels plenty ritualistic, fit for driving a meditative state in its listeners while evoking mental imagery of nights spent dancing in the Tulumian jungle — or, perhaps on an off-grid desert. This sound is clearly one both Kora and Wuachuma have mastered over their tenure in dance.

Fans of Kora in the East Coast will be happy to know the Canadian artist is soon touching down in New York for an open-to-close set in Brooklyn. Purchase tickets to the affair, which commences on the evening of December 8, here.

Seismic Dance Event is a new festival hosted by local Austin, Texas promoter RealMusic Events. Known for their house-oriented electronic lineups, Seismic Dance Event seems to the pinnacle of their love for hard beats and dirty grooves.

The lineup features house music heavyweights and newcomers, with big name talent like Anna Lunoe, Green Velvet, and Duke Dumont alongside some smaller, but still reputable names such as Amtrac, Hotel Garuda, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and more. Hosted at the scenic Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, this lineup and location pairing makes Seismic Dance Event one of fall’s most intriguing festivals.

‘Anjunadeep 09’ offers an ethereal ride through deep and progressive

This post was originally published on this site

Autumn is in full force, which means it’s time for the arrival of the prized annual Anjunadeep compilation. 2017 brings about the ninth iteration of the series, mixed by the usual stalwarts James Grant and Jody Wisternoff.

Both producers have proven their chemistry countless times, and do so once more in their curation of Anjunadeep 09′s 36 tracks. James Grant puts forth the first disc, per tradition, which serves as a light introduction to some of the gems that have caught his attention since the last compilation’s release. One such example is Dusky’s special edition re-work to their ambient/breaks song “Square Miso.” “Wake Me Up Tomorrow,” a new gem by Luttrell also features, while a Kaskade-supported Fairchild debuts on the imprint with “The Light In You.”

Wisternoff’s mix is equally palatable, kicking off with an ambient collaboration alongside Grant titled “The Flame,” and slowly building into pieces like “Nous” by Kora and a euphoric “Hypno Seq,” by Martin Roth. 16-bit Lolitas also provided Wisternoff with a previously unreleased re-work to L. Doblado’s “Lie Alone” — a supremely touching progressive cut that embodies the elements that draw so many to Anjunadeep. Meanwhile, “Cinematic Fireball,” a collaboration between Wisternoff and Tom Middleton, add a touch of energy and lightheartedness to the overall vibe.

Anjunadeep 09 can be purchased here.
