Bedouin continue to establish their already essential Human Default label with a fantastic new five tracker from Capoon.

He is an Antwerp based artist with a world-wide musical view, a love of organic soundscapes and penchant for collaborating with real musicians from all over the world. He has been on his endless quest for a decade and always cooks up sultry and emotional stories with his unusual sounds.

First up here, he links with Roos Denayer for ‘April’, a near nine minute epic that awakens your every sense with its delicate piano chords draped over smooth drums. Heavenly vocals bring the soul and emotion and ensure a trance-inducing vibe. The excellent ‘Henna’ is an intoxicating house track with spiritual vocal chants layered over exotic strings. It makes for deep, enthralling grooves that are rich with detail.

‘Shaman’ then explores more percussive grooves, with a jumble of kicks, hand drums, tribal vocals and wooden hits all making you loosen your limbs and get lost in the most absorbing atmosphere. The originality continues on ‘Take That’, with its bold chords bringing a real sense of drama as whispered vocals and dancing synths get you on your toes. It’s steamy and intimate before closing cut ‘Egyptian Mercado’ is another deep and spacious groove, but one detailed with jungle sound effects, bird calls, watery droplets, meandering leads and a real sense of late night wooziness.

These are hugely inventive tracks that evoke a new set of house music emotions thanks to their pan-global influences.

Capoon ‘April EP’ drops on Human By Default on 28th August 2020.
