inklusive seinem deb?t -causers of this- (2010) hat chaz bundick als toro y moi in nur f?nf jahren vier alben herausgebracht. 2011 kam -underneath the pine-, 2013 -anything in return- und 2015 -what for?-. dabei jagte ein konzert das n§chste. kein wunder, dass sich bundick immer ausgelaugter f?hlte. und dann war da noch der eindruck, seine k?nstlerische identit§t w§re ihm abhanden gekommen. das ganze st?rzte den musiker in eine schwere pers¸nliche krise: -i felt as though i no longer knew what it was that i actually wanted and needed in and out of life, and at times i felt unable to even tell what was real.- gl?cklicherweise fand bundick wieder zur?ck ins leben und die realit§t. mit dem -trick-, den musiker einfach am besten beherrschen: bundick verarbeitete seine angstst¸rung in neue songs. ein dutzend sind es geworden. und wenn man diesen lauscht, mag man gar nicht glauben, dass sie eine so schwere geburt hatten - der -meister des chillwave- hat sein h§ndchen f?r l§ssig-frische kl§nge nicht verloren. ausgehend von der idee, den raum zum klingen zu bringen, standen ihm k?nstler wie travis scott, daft punk, frank ocean, oneohtrix point never, kashif und gigi masin bei den aufnahmen konzeptionell zur seite. famos!
ariwo ist ein in london beheimatetes, kubanisch-iranisches quartett, das sich darauf konzentriert, die bislang unerforschten zusammenh§nge zwischen elektronischer musik, afrokubanischen rhythmen und iranischem mystizismus zum klingen zu bringen. sein selbstbetiteltes deb?t erscheint als auf 500 exemplare limitierte doppel-lp mit vier sehr langen und hypnotischen tracks. die platte ist die zweite ver¸ffentlichung des labels manana, das vom !k7-kollektiv in der nachfolge des atemberaubenden kubanischen manana-festivals 2016 gegr?ndet wurde. in den worten der band ist es deren ziel -to connect our native musical traditions to electronic music in a way, that pushes beyond traditional cuban an iranian identity-. denn auf diese weise entst?nde ein sound, der keiner spezifischen kultur mehr zugeordnet werden k¸nne. dazu passt es, dass der begriff -ariwo- in der westafrikanischen yoruba-kultur, die im zuge des transatlantischen sklavenhandels auch nach kuba gelangte und dort zu einem einflussreichen faktor wurde, schlicht ger§usch bedeutet.
