Hear a dreamy track from Qendresa & Hugo Mari


Qendresa & Hugo Mari

Having already made a name for themselves under their previous “Mindset” moniker – Qendresa & Hugo Mari (aka Books) return with their beautifully crafted “Shades On” EP.

A year after they debuted their ‘short, sweet, and hella soulful’ track “Good Love” on XVI Records‘ Island Unknown compilation, the North London return to the label with “six dusty, low slung jams (complete with twinkling Rhodes piano and rich golden era textures, courtesy of Hugo Mari on the buttons) brought to life by Qendresa’s distinctive vocal tones and elegant inflections.”

Get a taste of the EP in the form of “Regret,” a minimalist, R&B slow groover, propelled by Qendresa’s rich tones that build on Mari’s downtempo soundscape.
