Psy duo Pura Vida Vs Effective grace JOOF Mantra this week with their masterful EP ‘Warrior’s Calling’.
Pura Vida Vs Effective, masterminds in funky, festival psy-trance come together to bring you ‘Warrior’s Calling’ and ‘India 911’. This release hits hard, with a crazed drop, moving melodies, and intense tribal chants, knitted together by immense, festival-driven triplets. Within the over-saturated realm of bassline orientated psy-trance, Warrior’s Calling stands out as unique, credible, and sincere while also wonderfully maintaining that high-level of fun and liveliness.
Monojoke is a name that has become synonymous with high-quality progressive, and ‘Hollow Child’ greatly exceeds the quality threshold that we set here at JOOF Aura. Inside ‘Hollow Child’, you’ll find an evanescent atmosphere, gorgeous percussive stabs, and a deep-seated groove that will entrance tribes on the dancefloor.
We felt the time is perfect to reignite our JOOF DJ sessions mix series, this being at a time when there’s a resurgence in the more specialist side of the scene. These mix complications are a perfect platform to showcase some of the best in the new generation of talent that are gracing clubs around the world. We turn to Toronto for our next session to a guy who has become a local hero as well as being one of the most forward thinking producers on this planet that has got the attention of the likes of Guy J and John Digweed.
Rick Pier O’Neil, a man with an immense and vast back-catalog of incredibly entrancing music, lights fire to JOOF Aura with the lavish ‘Absolom’. A luscious delight to the ears, Absolom is brush-stroked with deep-tribal grooves, menacing pads, and a dark atmosphere. Produced with pure vehemence, and topped off with a love for all things gloomy, ‘Absolom’ is best enjoyed amidst dusk.
Out on Mantra this week we have new guys Fonarev & Second Sine with their masterpiece ‘Lucid Logic’.
Russia’s superstar ‘Fonarev’ and up-and-coming trance vanguard Second Sine, celestially weave their profoundly touching sound to bring you Lucid Logic. Inside this sensational single you’ll find a furious groove, entrancing harmonies, and an enigmatic atmosphere. Take out your tissues, Lucid Logic is the perfect blend of Psychedelia, Trance, and Epicness.
