NEW MUSIC: JONO DAS – ILLUSTRATIONS EP

The latest effort from Auckland-based producer, Jono Das seems to borrow from a vast and deep arsenal of musical influences – Jazz, Latin, Soul, Blues, Psychedelia, and Hip Hop.

His project, aptly titled ‘Illustrations’ combines all of these elements without fault, creating something as visually enriching as it is sonically forthright. Das, who also happens to be an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, and videographer, is no stranger to bringing ideas to life visually, however as of late, prefers to paint songs rather than pictures.

Illustrations is the perfect marriage between earth and space; a fusion of nature and the cosmos.

Listen above and download the project free here.

Jono Das is on SoundCloud, BandCamp, Facebook, & Instagram

SONG OF THE WEEK

‘Breathing Underwater’ is the first release from Hiatus Kaiyote’s upcoming LP Choose Your Weapon, out May 5th. The Melbourne soul collective have been making significant noise locally as well as overseas for the last few years, even earning a Grammy nomination for their beautiful collaboration with Q-Tip, ‘Nakamarra.’

Their latest effort doesn’t disappoint; There is something rhythmic and enticing about this single, the incredible voice of Nai Palm taking you on a sonic journey through unpredictable and hypnotising terrain. The sound is layered and technical without ever losing it’s soul.
