The "Masala EP" is the first release from RISE MUSIC, a natural evolution of the RISE events, showcasing some of the world's forward thinking African-influenced producers and artists. Bold, expressive and playful in approach, the EP is a true testament to the new wave of artists and evocative soundscapes that are emerging from Africa.
Floyd Lavine is a South African born and now Berlin based producer and one of the founding members of RISE. As Floyd proudly states “I draw inspiration from the magic of Africa and expressing the future through an unlimited sonic expression which I call African Techno. For me when I think of Africa I envision beautiful enigmatic bright colours, I see humility, I see pain, I see joy, I see determination, I see perseverance, I see dance, laughter, ritual, tradition, an undefined unity but above all I feel pure expression and eternal love.“ Floyd Lavine’s quirky yet solemn approach to the craft can be felt in the production of the original tracks Masala (African Techno Mix) and Masala (Jungle Boogie Mix). The African Techno mix is a stripped back techno-ish journey, a driving prime time roller, subtle in nature yet a primal fueled, defiantly menacing track. Jungle Boogie embraces a more playful approach with off beat rhythms, a deep baseline whilst still keeping with the theme of combining the past with the future sonically. Truly a special track that has to be played at the right time during a set. The EP is complimented by two beautifully crafted remixes from the talented and seasoned producers David Mayer and Pablo Fierro.
