About this item
Mogwaa's an interesting cat. He's so far captured our attention through some very different releases: two on Star Creature and one on Red Seal that demonstrate a very multi-faceted approach for this Seoul, South Korean producer.
For its 12th release, one of our favourite new house labels, Spring Theory presents four more, totally different experiences from this rising producer. Apparently inspired by his experience in livingin Peru and Vietman, in his own words: 'The first track is kind of ode to Lima, Peru. It was the first country that I lived besides Korea so everything was so new to me. And it made lost in thought of their culture: colonial era, dictatorship, and even Japanese president. And second track I made it remembering where I lived in Vietnam, a place where the Mekhong river find its way to the sea. Which is full of mangrove forest and mango trees. And third one is scenery of my neighborhood: at some point I could find feelings from my Seoul neighborhood in Peru and Vietnam. And last one is kind of nostalgia for Peru and Vietnam looking forward to coming back someday.'
Evocative, slightly otherworldly sounds in very much that Spring Theory fashion, collide with Mogwaa's ear for the unusual, shunning obvious melodies and motifs for something deeper, magical and shimmering with a holistic goodness. Get involved.
