SUCHI has released a new EP through Jamz Supernova's Future Bounce label. Check it out below.
Out now, the release is comprised of two tracks: 'Seher' and 'Lykke'. Speaking about the EP in a statement, the Oslo-born, Manchester-based DJ, producer and Daytimers collective member said: "I wanted the two tracks on the EP to reflect a mood of day and night.
"'Lykke' (which means 'luck' in Norwegian) holds a deep yet upbeat vibe with looping female vocals, a squelchy acid bassline, and groovy bongo percussion. 'Seher' (which means 'dawn' in Urdu), on the other hand, is a darker, more minimal techno cut featuring echoing vocals of legendary Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
"I always try to incorporate elements from my cultural backgrounds in my music and Nusrat was a voice I always wanted to experiment with. The power behind his voice led to a more minimal production, so his voice could really cut through and shine. 'Lykke' balances out the darkness of 'Seher' with that percussive groove and I think as a two track EP it shows a slightly different direction in my production. I don't want to be confined to any specific genres and that's an important part of my ideation and creation process."
The release is part of the second instalment of Future Bounce's Club Series, following on from releases by Scratcha DVA x DemiMa, quest?onmarq, and The Busy Twist. Listen to the EP below.
