Exclusive: Music for the Moody: Fuagwá

FUAk

Sorry for the delay on this one, for May 2016 has been a month like no other. First, our bestest of friends in Bangkok has moved away, which put me in a little bit of a sad mood – hence the theme of the compilation, Fuagwá. However, the track list is a joint collaboration with him – the one and only Diego, whom we dedicated a mix to a while back, which was one of the better-received ones. You know I am protective about the mixes, but he has helped me branch out a little and experiment with new sounds, which I need every once in a while (not always).

Aside from that fact, I also embarked on a work trip to West Africa (specifically the countries of Niger, Togo and Benin). Most of the time I had no electricity or sometimes water, let alone a functioning internet connection. So, even though I had the compilation ready to go, I couldn’t upload it. This is one reason for the delay, the second is the artwork.

I was caught up with finding a cover for this sombre, yet tantalizing compilation and voiced my frustration on Snapchat (@nasque). The ever-so-talented AJBawardi (HunterOfMiracles) jumped in and saved the day with his amazing photography.

So here it is, an alternative offering of sorts, that’s a bit eclectic and a lot moody. This is for the ones who look for new acts and fresh sounds. Also, for the wine connoisseurs.
