SALES NOTES

Following the truly epic and immersive opus ‘Trinidad’ last year, Ezikiel returns to AJ Christou’s Celesta with sense-surging transglobal trip. Destination: southeast Europe, please welcome ‘The Woman From Balkan’…. Gradually measured and comfortably off grid, there’s a welcoming openness to the groove before the string bass twangs and lolls in the cavernous spaces among the rhythmic elements. Piece by piece the puzzle forms before the full vocal and gadulka strings swoon in and sweep you away in a Balkan sunset...

Remix wise Ezikiel’s long-time friend Luciano saddles up for an equally mesmerizing ride into the mountains. Easing us in with dusky atmospherics and soft breaks he gently brings in the night as more instruments are drawn out across the eight and a half minutes. Piqued with progressive, starlit charm, it comes in both a full floor-bound version and a hypnotic, rolling percussive dub. Hot creative wAFF takes the controls for the final leg of our Balkan sojourn. A more direct, soul stirring perspective, here he navigates us with a warm jacking beat that’s relentlessly robust but still spacious enough for wild strands of percussion to whip around it. With great dynamic switches between the full vocal and strings then suddenly dropping to a naked bassline, this is one of wAFF’s more charming floor burners to date. Yet another fine trip and three exceptional re-routes, who knows where Celesta will take us next?
