“MAUGLI’s debut hits off with two fresh tracks for our free download series.
The first song „Away“ starts dark with choppy guitar licks, chants and arpeggios, repeating, twirling and pulling you in, drawing you deep into its rhythmic african world.
A warm percussive piece, underlined by deep bass and shaky synths, warping and weaving in and out.
Schweben’s Away,a sample of Merlui Miranda’s ‘Pamé Daworo’, Ogoya Nengo and The Dodo Women’s Group’s ‘Kadana’ have been worked into the track.
‘I bought a Shotgun’ the infamous Screamin’ Jay Hawkins used by
sample trio ‘Den Sorte Skole’, returns to stage.
Based on the pounding guitar pattern of Damon’s song Did You Ever
Maugli kickstarts his second track with a bass and a beat that gets your teeth churning and shakes you to the bone.
With delightful twists and turns the track becomes a catchy
headbanger that is hard to resist.”
“For the second round of our free download series we welcome Mr. Soček, often seen on the bass as one half of the amazing duo JAJA.
He now delivers us two new reinterpretations of legendary bluesman Son House and the sublime queen of jazz Nina Simone. Low-key jazz melodies meet rolling beats with mooching basslines and oily chords.”
