  • Release Date 2019-07-19
  • Label Akbal Music
  • Catalog AKBAL169
Dedicated to only the finest house, Akbal Music is a deep and melodic label with spiritual vibes and tribal grooves. Headed up by Robbie Akbal, its roster includes tracks and remixes from the likes of Mihai Popoviciu, Death on the Balcony, Nick Curly, Hyenah, Jon Charnis and Audiofly.

Label owner Robbie Akbal provides the original track for the new release, which also features remixes from Floyd Lavine and Facundo Mohrr.

First of the remixes is from South African artist Floyd Lavine who is one of the country's most exciting young prospects, already receiving global bookings in places like Brazil and Germany where he is a resident as Watergate. Still early in his career, he already has an accomplished back catalogue with tracks on Get Physical, Defected, Moon Harbour, an his own Rise Music.

Argentinia based Facundo Mohrr is the second remix artist and he comes fresh from releasing on All Day I Dream along with other noteworthy imprints such as Magician On Duty, Shanti Radio Moscow and L'enfant terrible.

Featuring the vocals of Ay Sarita, the original track titled "Fanaya" is an eloquent piece of music with natural textures that conjure images of the jungle from a distant land filled with exotic wildlife. Enchantingly spiritual, the seductive vocal intermingles with the rich percussive textures and melody rich pads as they weave a fateful path through the trees and phonic foliage.

Floyd Lavine's remix removes some of the atmospheric textures, putting more of a focus on the percussion to create a toughened up version designed for the club. This also exposes the vocals give it an intimate sound that adds to the unfolding tension and building intensity.

Facundo Mohrr closes the EP with a remix that pays homage to the original's mood but with a new bassline

and some added intricacy. It's got a warm and soothing sound centred round calming atmosphere and deep rhythms that erupt into full flow after the main breakdown when the track takes flight.
