MUST LISTEN: Ekali shares his ‘Awakening Mix 7’
Once again, Canadian superproducer Ekali has delivered another installment of his beloved Awakening mix series. The seventh iteration of the eclectic yet powerful offering continues on a familiar path; bright electronic vibes mix with occasional pop/hip hop interjections, laid carefully over a feel-good landscape of uplifting and emotional tunes.
As usual, this is more of a curation of other artists’ tunes than of Ekali’s own work. Here, he’s offered a few select edits and remixes, but has mostly stuck to the formula of seamlessly blending some of the music he’s been listening to into a de facto DJ set. Featured in this mix are artists like Mr. Carmack, Flume, San Holo, and Khalid.
Awakening: Vol. 6 came out in December of 2018, so it’s a pleasant surprise that the new edition is out so soon. He’s been on a tear, with his debut EP Crystal Eyes coming out last September and more music on the way soon.
