about

Our tenth release lands from the colourful climes of Barcelona, via Colombia. As the Northern hemisphere prepares to zip up jackets and don woolly hats, Bogota-born producer Blanali breezes in with five rich, kaleidoscopic constructions - and a contagiously funky Lazy H flip - to warm us up. These deep, lapping electronic jams hypnotised us when we first heard them back when Corona was just a beer. They sound all the more meaningful now. Meditative movements for the mind and body, ‘Birds of Paradise’ could best be described as ‘tropical space acid’.

This EP is a personal record, touching on themes of major life changes, family, and the nostalgia producer Blanali feels for his home country. Secure in his oasis in the heart of the noisy Barcelona barrio he resides in, he recorded the tracks using the ambient sounds of the world around him. Musically ‘Birds of Paradise’ is everything Blanali has always wanted to experiment with. Latin, African, Jazz, Salsa and Electronic. H89 nods to the London Jazz sound whereas Birds of Paradise is a potent cocktail. The light and dark of this EP dance around each other fluidly, sometimes taking a turn for the weird but all while holding on to a playful optimism.

Support from Nina Kraviz, DOP, Danny Tenaglia, DVS-1, Jimpster, Mr Beatnick, Harri, I:cube, Martyn Bootyspoon & OM Unit.
