Following on from his debut release for Crosstown Rebels in 2018, Emanuel Satie is welcomed back to the revered label to present Rivers feat. MAMA, another display of his gifted musical skill, set for release this February.
“Rivers is inspired by a short vocal sketch the singer MAMA sent me some time ago. The lyrics are dedicated to her father and deal with loss and isolation. I was so touched by the raw emotion and the love that is flowing through these vocals, that I had to make a track out of it. We are very happy to bring this personal and special track into the world.” Emanuel Satie
Rivers feat. MAMA opens with a spirited bassline, delicate percussion is added before MAMA’s outstanding vocal cuts through, touching the soul as the mystical chant of melody slowly burns. Tokyo ASMR sees the listener transported to the colour and ambience of the city, it features Japanese inspired strings, flutes and samples that lock around a minimal beat inducing a state of meditation and tranquillity.
