WHAT YOUR EARS SAY & WHAT THE COVER LOOKS LIKE
WHAT WE SAY
It's been great teaming up with Wiki Chaves and dropping a couple of singles from his new album, now you can finally check the full length LP that has just landed - perfect summer listening.
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY
Wiki Chaves’ latest production is Raíz - a 27 minute long minimalistic instrumental album jointly released by The Slow Music Movement. Its 7 tracks combine beats from a legendary Ace Tone drum machine, quiet electric guitar layers and subtle acoustic percussion to create relaxing dreamy landscapes inspired by parenthood and a return to nature, hence the title "Raíz" (roots in Spanish).
The music on Raíz is driven by soft riffs that develop organically and work as mantric loops, seasoned with deep reverbs that convey a retro vibe, and spatial backgrounds reminiscent of ambient music. The influences for the tracks on the album are drawn from diverse roots: dub’s signature sound, post-punk heavily chorused guitars, exotica rhythms, classical guitar arpeggios and smooth jazz phrasing.
