PREMIERE: Matt Jah – Orizonte

Baikal Nomads drops a new downtempo organic house EP ‘Ritmo De La Selva’ by Matt Jah which also features a remix from Sadhu Sensi.

Matt Jah is a well-travelled Italian songwriter, composer and electronic music producer who takes inspiration from different cultures. Blending live instruments and electronic sounds, his tracks often infuse enchanting melodies from far-off lands with indigenous tribal rhythms.

This is Matt Jah’s second time releasing on Baikal Nomads after he recently featured a track on the label’s Badarchin, Vol. 6 compilation. His track ‘Canto a La Lluvia’ was one of the standouts from the release and now he is back with four new originals.

‘Ritmo De La Selva’ EP consists of four original tracks, ‘Espiral’, ‘Indigena’, ‘Ohm Nay’ and ‘Orizonte’, and a remix of ‘Ohm Nay’ from the South African artist Sadhu Sensi.

Talking about his release, Matt Jah said: “‘Ritmo De La Selva’ is a deep search for sounds and rhythms inspired by travels around the world. Rich in African percussion and Andean instruments. The concept of this EP is to take the listener on a journey through forests, mountains, lakes and uncontaminated spaces. Nature is the guide within each song. Particularly in ‘Ohm Nay’ where I sing, the chant is in channelled language, also called ‘light language’. It is a form of free singing that begins with meditation and ends with free expression.”

We are presenting the fourth track ‘Orizonte’, which blends different flute samples with the uplifting energy of fast-flowing percussion rhythms and a modulating synth line that ripples with acid tones. It’s got a mystifying atmosphere that puts the listener into a trance with its spell-binding groove.

‘Ritmo De La Selva’ EP will be available after the 23rd of January HERE.
