Organic, tribal electronic music is on the rise. As our global society becomes more intertwined, an increasing number of producers have begun incorporating ancestral sounds from around the world. Coupled with an emerging culture that emphasizes natural healing and conscious gatherings, this special brand of electronic music is a force to be reckoned with. With the release of their definitive EP Eyes of the Jaguar, producers Stephan Jacobs and Sunev Lovechild have now entered this realm as the duo Bósa.
Packed with world music influences and recordings from their individual travels around the globe, the project is filled with beautiful landscapes and enchanting tribal drum work. Funky and danceable, yet meditative, the six tracks wind their way through a journey of sonic bliss. The fusion of ancient and modern is expertly done here; at every step of the way the duo crafts a harmonious vibe that easily merges the ancestral and electronic worlds. The deep grooves and old-world instruments that make up the backbone of this record create a compelling, evocative emotional landscape.
It’s a good time to be a fan of this style of organic electronic music. As our technology collectively grows more powerful and ubiquitous, it’s important to be reminded of our roots. It’s clear that music that heals the spirit and celebrates life through dance is growing as well, and Eyes of the Jaguar shows it.
