Leipzig / Germany
(You Need Friends Not Discos Records)
Jascha Hagen and Jan Soutchek – aka JAJA weave a wild cosmos of natural sounds together with their dance floor-ready bass and astral synthesizers. A fiesta of indigenous bird and insect noises arrives around vocals and even choirs, accompanied by the pounding of organic percussion. Flute and guitar samples from long-forgotten South American folk songs paint a melancholy rainbow over the whole tropical hallucination. Makumba!
