Listen 'Gnawa' Remixes EP:
First up, Yuksek delivers a driving, high-energy rework of ‘Gnawa’, while maintaining the hypnotic vibe that makes the original so special. Dombrance’s remix is a more blissed-out affair, with the Paris-based artist adding soothing piano chords to make for a more downbeat take on the track.
Whilst talking about the project Dombrance said, “In the midst of this long confinement, Gnawa inspired me to explore a more contemplative vibe than usual. I hope you enjoy the magic carpet ride!”.
The ‘Gnawa’ EP was inspired by a magical ride through Morocco, with Polocorp enchanted by the local Gnawa sound. After a short search he encountered a few super talented musicians, creating ‘The Atlas Collective’ of Simo Baala, Abdallah Roudani, Monclif Boubul and Andrey Zouzari. Together they inspired Polocorp to create the sounds that helped shape this mystical collection, and feature on the title track.
