Los Angeles artists Bósa, David Starfire, and AHEE have all implemented conscious elements into their respective styles at some point or another. Whether it’s a thematic thread in one song or long-running aesthetic throughout their catalog, they each understand ancient spiritualism. It’s a theme that sits at the core of their latest celestial co-creation. Out now on Gravitas, “Walking In The Stars” got its inspiration from the Aztecs and they would practices looking into ponds to observe the cosmos.
From Bósa’s use of indigenous instrumentation and veteran status in the festival circuit, David Starfire’s legendary prestige as the pioneer of the global bass genre, and AHEE’s eminence for exploring uncharted realms of electronic music, this trio of LA-based virtuosos is an ingenious and resourceful coalescence.
Throughout four inventive minutes, a subterfuge of bass and world percussion come to a creative crossroads. It’s a meeting point that is more deeply woven with a bluesy sentiment and a dash of pop vocals to permeate emotions. At its core, the collaborative track employs enticing tribal rhythms to escort listeners on an introspective journey as the drumbeat transports the body and spirit to a distant land.
