Our Thursday selection: Ilu & Aaye – Voodoo Cult (A Tribe Called Kotori, ATCK002)
Like the ‘Loa’ which plays a central role in voodoo magic, magnetic percussion is alchemised with subtle vocals and trance-like rhythms to create a track of great power and unlimited possibility.
‘Ogun’ conjures the occult in this upbeat, high-energy track. Abracadabra: with a puff of smoke, the sonic spells cast by this track set the scene for some supernatural dancefloor sorcery.
Channelling the chaotic energy of dark magic, tribalesque percussion melds with ritualistic reverbs to create ‘Voodoo’: an invocation to the deity of melodic techno.
Take possession of the dancefloor with ‘Voodoo Cult’, a must-listen for those with a penchant for the esoteric production skills and technical wizardry of the enigmatic duo Ilu & Aaye.
