One of the most underrated talents in genre-bending released an immaculate EP yesterday, and we’re here for it. Aguava, combining inspiration from Afro-Cuban jazz to 90’s house, presents Aguava EP.
An apparent gradual transition from lo-fi to house inspiration, Aguava showcases an extraordinary talent for genre experimentation and fusion. With just five tracks in total, we were craving a self-titled album by the end. Beginning with atmospheric, lo-fi vibes, “Harvest” is a smooth and peaceful introduction to the EP. We then move on to “Something Real,” a tasteful exploration of percussive elements and tribal samples that immerses the listener in a cultural whirlpool of delicate, rich tones. Fully-fledged, chill-house track, “Coconuts,” grabbed our ears with its infectious beat and guitar-driven outro.
Explaining his vision for the EP to “explore a bunch of different styles and incorporate world sounds and tribal influences,” I’d say Aguava met and exceeded these goals tremendously. Crank this EP at your next get-together or on a cool summer drive for the most pristine of vibes.
