Emancipator Delivers Must Hear New 14-Track Album 'Baralku'

Emancipator Baralku Art

Emancipator is someone who never disappoints. For years, the talented artist has been behind some of our favorite instrumentals and once again proves he’s a force to be reckoned with on his latest project, the 14-track album titled Baralku.

We recently had the opportunity to premiere the title track off this album and have been patiently awaiting the full project. Now Emancipator’s fifth studio album has arrived via his own label Loci Records and it’s just what we wanted to hear from the veteran. Emancipator’s sound is always evolving and this latest release is no different. He always seems to be able to capture a mystical, calming quality in each of his songs as he effortlessly combines layers of instrumentation. Here he expertly blends organic instrumentation and electronic productions in a ways that compliment each other so well. He’s incorporated many different elements ranging from middle eastern strings to hip-hop percussion, glitchy vocal chops and everything between. Enjoy!
