Continuing off the success of his inaugural release from last year, label head and Bolting Bits colleague Igor B is set to come out with another record on his percussion-loving Canadian label, Breathing Room Records. This time around he has chosen to spotlight a new project from Switzerland-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Lokke. For the EP Aquarius, Lokke has decided to operate under the whimsical name of Bixi in an effort to push out more sample & house-oriented tracks than the downtempo and jazzy originals he’s come to be known for. In total, this record will contain 5-tracks with a goal to jettison listeners closer to the equator with groovy rhythms that will instantly transport you somewhere beachside.
If we had to pick the original that best accomplishes this goal, we would have to say it’s the track we are premiering for you today. Titled Cosmic Water, one will hear an assortment of slap-happy basslines and swelling synths that are complemented by an assortment of both expertly sampled and finely performed parts – making it the most dancefloor friendly tune of the bunch. However, what really rounds out the piece is the collection of bird calls and fluttering flute rhythms that are at the forefront of the song from beginning to end. If any fans of Brazilian jazz and samba are reading this, you will certainly feel at home the second the tune is played.
