Acclaimed house duo Badin Brothers return to Housekeeping Records with the exhilarating two-track ‘Indica’ EP, released on 29 May.
Brimming full of mysticism and groove, on ‘Indica’, the innovative brothers demonstrate their unique sound which fuses musical influences from both East and West ‘Indies’ drenched in hypnotic tech-house beats. The central theme is the contrast between Hinduism, Rastafarianism, which both promote music as a centre piece to one’s life, the community as well as in the search for a higher meaning and mystical experiences. ‘Indica’ here represents the spiritual fusion of India and Jamaica.
Opening track ‘Saraswati’, named after the Hindu goddess of music, art, wisdom and nature, features a smothering baseline combined with fast drumlines. The enchanting Baul vocals which come in and out of the track, swirling around a driving off-beat groove, make it feel like a prayer to Saraswati.
Badin Brothers are Paris-born production duo of Scott and Olivier Badin. They are renowned for their ability to produce rich and soulful music that blends styles with strong percussion elements and Latin American influences. Their EPs on Housekeeping Records, ‘Music Off’, ‘Caravan’, and ‘Mind Over Matter’, along with ‘Dance I Say’ on Luca M’s Hey Momma! label, and ‘Monkey Flute’ and ‘Archangel’ on Crossings received support from DJs including Sasha, Joris Voorn, Eli & Fur, Dennis Ferrer, Gorgon City, Claptone, Richy Ahmed, Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, Claude VonStroke, and Paco Osuna.
