Bonzai regular Jakhira steps over to Piston Recordings for his debut EP entitled Americana. Multi-talented Belgium based producer Jakhira certainly knows how to churn out quality vibes. At BP he relishes in dishing out quality prog while keeping his finger on the deep house pulse that runs through his veins. He has also graced various other labels with his sounds and we’re delighted to see him at Piston where we hope to see much more in the future.
Los Feliz is a beautifully constructed slice of deep house, with pumping kick drums and shuffling hats that deliver a smooth rhythmic flow, to the playful deep bass that gives the track so much depth and lushness. Cool vocal snippets run through the track as ultra cool keys play out with a pure deep house vibe alongside a super smooth and groovy trumpet. A solid offering that will be a welcome addition in any set.
Gowanus intros with a nice and chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat in classic style. As the percussion start to build bringing a fine flowing rhythm, a super lush organ is introduced and right away you feel hooked on the groove. We are taken deeper into the groove with a wonderful probing bassline and a mesmerizing trumpet riff. An absolute must have track that will not disappoint.
