Up next on A Tribe Called Kotori is Turkish-born, Berlin-based new sensation Ece Ekren with the moon-revering ‚Selene‘ EP. Cutting her own musical path at the junction of tribal house and laid-back electro-pop, all injected with the breath and dimension of timeless big-room epics, the rising producer weaves dreamy tapestries for dancers to fully immerse in.
‚Selene‘ is the epitome of Ekren’s all-embracing style, amply winged and definitely aimed at the summits. All in subtle colour changes and poignant melodic uplift, the track slowly blooms from pure ambient-laced, Afro-styled boogie to an ambitious momentum of pop-adjacent electronics, beautifully ornamented with Ekren’s addictively smooth voice and fiery drums beating the tempo. Heightening world-house music to dance and dream your life away to. ‚As She Knows‘, ft. Nes Mburu on vocals, opts for a more understated route, delving into the deeper side of bass-driven house and sub-Saharian soulfulness to shape up a stealth funky monster of a tune, blazing with scorching hot erg-disco riffs and Mburu’s magnificent timbre. Lushly mystic, sense-awakening funk from a talent you are not quite done hearing about.
