It’s great to get the imagination pumping. Kairiko thought it would be very interesting to blend an 808 with classical instruments, and I agree! The second half of the track has a strangle calming and meditative quality. Reminds me of some Tru-Thoughts chills in the backyard. I wonder what other stories there are to tell. See for yourself on Instagram.

French-Canadian producer and live act Christophe Dubé, aka CRi, is a dance music star in the making. As I discovered the solace of long runs during the pandemic months, I find this track to be a burner in me and a regular on my headphones. Taking me back to all summer thoughts full of light and promises to keep. You can never go wrong with Anjunadeep too. Find more here. Bummer, I didn’t get my hands on the Cap >> however the Juvenile LP is awaiting in bright colors!

Jessica Roch is a multimedia composer, multi-instrumentalist, and improviser. She mixes wide and varied soundscapes with the grittiness of close-up tones and loves to explore the intricacies of an instrument. Falling somewhere between neo-classical, avant-pop and minimalism, Dictate/Meditate has a truly unique, ethereal sound. It uses traditionally classical instruments – vocalise singing, organ and violin but warps them to create an untraditional sound. A swirl of feelings on sound and audio purity, see more here.

He recently began releasing his own project in collaboration with artists Jarobi White of ATCQ, Trevor Hall, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Trent Park, Madame Gandhi, and, Mamel of Los Amigos Invisibles. As a strong trumpet fan I bloomed to this elegant marriage of soundscapes, and cannot wait for the skittering full releases this year. It sounds heavenly amazing!

My brain never stops humming to the heart of Alkis‘ music, it is always a gravity of experiences. Follow him on Instagram to get the latest music news.
