Penya – Beat Your Demon EP

PenyaProducer Magnus PI delivers a first-rate 4 track EP on London label On The Corner next month. Following last years Penya Investigations release Magnus continues his worldly percussive/electronic wanderings with an eclectic but cohesive collection, which marries sounds from Cuba, India, Turkey, North Africa and beyond. Bringing together an array of talented musicians the record features Finnish singer/multi-instrumentalist Lilli Elina, percussion don Jim Le M  Venezuelan bass/synth man Adolfredo Pulido, and their newest member Viva Msimang on Trombone. Today we’re sharing two tracks from the EP. Take a listen to “Beat Your Demons” the title cut which finds Penya exploring his  Afro-Latin roots. The EP concludes with Karachi which sees Penya briefly revisiting the band’s debut single “Acelere” before Elina uses her distinctive vocals to transform the electro-carnival atmosphere into an enthralling vocal peak. The pounding Colombian Tambora drum clatters beneath a final Magnus PI percussion onslaught, leading the EP to a pulsating conclusion. Look out for the EP next month, but for now, stream the new tracks below!          

Beat Your Demon EP is out April via On The Corner – pre-order from Bandcamp.
