Embarking on their second collaborative endeavor, the Italian beat makers and multi- instrumentalists, Halfred and Lo.Renzo further solidify their close working relationship with their first EP as Jakare. Released on Desert Trax, Jakare's 'Apu' EP is the culmination of all that's dear about both artists' creative vision, blending intricate technical design with melodic tenderness and biophilic atmospherics. The artists' choice to pursue these new avenues of shamanic downtempo music reflects their willingness to start afresh under a new alias and pursue experimentation without the pre- conceived associations with their solo projects.

In the course of four songs, the duo paint a truly vivid picture of ancient life in nature and taking inspiration from different modern cultures; from the slight nod to the bluesy Latin American marshes of 'Cleansing', Andean flavors on 'Glass Temple', the instrumental grooves of 'GloBall' and aquatic night time swims in 'Moon Howl', the EP stays consistent in its overall aesthetic and harmoniousness throughout. The duo utilize charango, classic guitars, electric guitar, pan flute, shakers, percussions to bring the organic sound, while relying on their masterful sound design techniques to develop cinematic field-recording- based atmospherics.

Apu arrives on Desert Trax May 31st. Jakare will also debut their live show at Spain's Own Spirit festival this summer. Get ready to grow leaves out your ears!
