Matan Caspi - Ethiopia / Stand Tall EP
His formerly hermetic tendencies now firmly a thing of the past, Matan Caspi continues his hot streak, dusting off two exceptional tracks from his studio. Building the release around the sounds of the world music with ethnic vocals and elements on ‘Ethiopia’ as the names suggests and with sophisticated jazzy implantations and sleek arpeggiators on ‘Stand Tall’ where he again join forces with the Dutch singer Sehya. Matan takes us here into a transcontinental journey of life with this marvels EP, makes the most of the obscure, building nicely the tempo, stripping down the beats, and zeroing in on gelatinous timbres.
The melodic and straight-ahead tones make this EP a musical chemistry, direct your attention just right to the image of wild fields, vivid landscapes and a world of addicting tales comes snapping into focus with this two beauties. Dub versions are available as well for those among you who prefer it straight forward. A must have in any bag!
