Unwind takes inspiration from the healing flow of water and the journey to mind release and inner peace. The opening track, “Hyogo”, is the sublime work of Japa Music, an alias of accomplished Italian producer and multi-instrumentalist Michele Chiavarini. Atlasov, an alias of Colombian producer Alejandro Bernal aka Mr Bleat, contributes “Mallku”, a sonic symphony of the deep forest at night, with the soothing sound of crickets serenading the gentle breeze and trees. Costa Rican electronic composer and producer Jose Solano finds inspiration in the solitude of remote white sand beaches and turquoise waves on “Cabuyal”. Hypnotic heartbeats and spoken word flow through the extended guided meditation of “In Connection” by Existo En Movimento, a collaboration between Ibicenco producer Be.Lanuit and guided meditation instructor Alexandra Piñeiro. Orianna’s premier artist Sinego debuts his Alterego alias on “Rio Abierto”, evoking the gravitational force of tides rolling in and out and gentle drops of water leading to a stronger current on the open waves. Chilean producer and multi-instrumentalist Gonz Cabrera explores the dynamic meditations of the East and the shamanic rituals of Latin America on the seductive “Dunas”. Closing out Unwind is Southern Italian producer Ayala, fusing acoustic and digital elements with ethnic atmospherics on “Orillas”.
