About this item
For the first Offen release of 2021, Vladimir Ivkovic introduces us Piccadilly pickers to the sublime sound design of Tadi Yan. Vlad originally heard this in a Lena Willikens set in Warsaw back in 2019, and was hooked, seeking out Tadi in Shanghai to secure a proper vinyl release.
Taking Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche's recitation of a Guru Rinpoche Prayer as a starting point, Tadi conjures an intoxicating plume of ominous synth swells, echo laden percussion and blinking electronics, achieving a truly arresting effect. Backed with the original chant recording, this is true trance music, perfect for turning a club on its head.
Matt says: Sonic chakra re-alignment surgery here. In its original form, Rinpoche's prayer vibrates with your body tones and celestial hum (toad smokers will get this straight away); while the remix should inject some much needed electro-voodoo into even the most heathen of audiences.
