La'Ute Records is proud to present Witty Manyuha's first instalment of his floor-filling annual series; an atmospheric tale of the modern Deep House sounds blended with classic analogue reminiscences.
Meant to draw inspiration from all territories, the package captures each instant in painting an intricate auditory illustration rendered in its own spirituality, embodying steady inclines, cinematic breaks, whispering tones and haunting melodies.
This 7-track package is guaranteed to ignite dance floors and have all good music followers glued to their mobiles, with 'New Dawn' bringing Wi'Ma's usual heaviness and psychedelia, the nightmare stomping spirit that will take you to the shadowy unknowns, delivering the stable, well-jumbled percussion to have your speakers busy, haunting leads and deep textures. It is a selection of arena-sized dance songs shot through with gorgeously crafted melodies and electrifying chords.
With the selection broadly based on African cultures, the Ritual Deep dominates this floor-filler and was brewed to celebrate the little unity the world is left with. 'Lu a ya Luvenda' portraits African pride, encourages the beautiful Africans to stick by their culture, and is meant to preserve the rhythm of African traditions.
A lot of stories are told. A lot is represented.
Blending elements of African rituals and the Western deep, intimate and laid back sounds, 'Ancestral Arena I: Conclave of the Ritual Deep' is the perfect face-melting batch to confide on in bad days, dance to I. beautiful days, and to embrace in cold days.
Throughout, Wi'Ma reveals a rare balance of spectacular musicianship and pure Deep, Tribal instincts that's got much to do with his lifelong music obsessions.
