From time to time, I stumble upon a new artist with brilliant music that needs sharing. Today is one of those days (thanks to Stamp The Wax). Introducing Melbourne-based producer Prequel and his new track “Chant For You”. With a tinge of jazzy elements interspersed here and there, it combines African and Middle Eastern influences with a killer groove. Prequel had this to say about the track:
I was trying to make something with a bit more of an “ethnic” tinge. I wanted to fuse African chants and Middle Eastern sounds with my love of Jazz. The chants I used were from an old record I almost forgot I had and when I was making the song I thought having that element would really bring everything together. It also rhythmically fit into the bass sample in a way I really liked.
The track comes off a forthcoming compilation release from vinyl-only label Transfigured Time, alongside Bakradze, Akwaaba, General Ludd, Tenderlonious and Jordan Blacksmith.
One for the dancefloor – one for the heads.
