Sabo’s and his label Sol Selectas returns after its summer holiday with a stunning new EP from Djuma Soundsystem, who has collaborated on one of the tracks with Westerby and other with Australian artist Western. Both Djuma Soundsystem and Westerby are from Copenhagen and have previously made numerous collaborations on the Get Physical label and Chapter 24 Records. Djuma Soundsystem is also a successful solo artist who boasts a back catalogue including music signed to many imprints such as Parquet, Rebirth, Crosstown Rebels, Tenampa, and My Favorite Robot Records.
The original tracks on the EP were inspired by a safari trip in South Africa. With the bird sounds in the first track, ‘Saguaro’ made in collaboration with Westerby represents the jungle atmosphere created by the vibrant selection of wildlife, and the tribal chants pay homage to the aboriginal natives. The spritely melodies full of intrigue are symbolic of the wide eyed enchanted stairs from excited Western eyes looking upon beautiful foreign landscapes.’Kawahagi’ was made in collaboration with Western is representative of the South Aftrican weather with tribal drums being the pitter-patter of rain, and leads to the drama of the breakdowns ominous bassline that looms like an overcasting storm cloud. Starting off light and breezy then moving towards the darker more intense ending, this dramatic cut changes like the extreme weather conditions in the South African countryside. You can listen to the fukll premiere of ‘Kawahagi’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy !
