Multi-talented Melbourne artist Cy Gorman returns with another colourful collection of sounds!
On his Heard and Felt project, Gorman explored the intersection of Latin, beats and synths which gain him support from Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff, Soil & Pimp Sessions, Richard Kingsmill (Triple J) and much more.
On his new Kupu Kupu EP, he turns his attention to more Asian influences. Right from the start, “Hati Hati” kicks things off with a streetwise 808 beat which takes a summery turn with the addition of ukelele and features a guest vocal spot from Sophia Davis.
The second track called “Hipgnosis” mixes a more Afro-Cuban rhythm with some globetrotting samples that slowly seeps into your mind.
The dark and moody, epic “Rasbhari Killah” is a dynamic fusion of Wu-Tang style production and Bollywood melodies wrapped up in a hypnotic groove.
Up next is the soothing sounds of “Hold” a delicate acoustic ballad touched with sweet harmonies and a gentle electronic breeze. The final track comes courtesy of Ennio Styles, a wonderfully-fused raw and uptempo edit of “Hipgnosis” that invites one and all to the dance floor.
Always delving into something fresh and different this EP is a stunning return from Gorman, and an absolute must listen!
