For this our sixth Botanas single series we have the pleasure to present two stunning original tracks and one beautiful edit from Canadian producer Oonga (who you might have spotted on our Mare Insularum compilation). Oonga is a DJ/producer from Montreal who works with Stonetree Records.
Opener El Caracol is one of the most personal tracks Eli (Oonga) has ever made. It is based on a poem written by the artist´s dad and dedicated to him. It was written after the two of them had a really deep conversation about hidden pain and then months later Eli´s dad showed him the words, and he was extremely moved and so created this beautiful track.
This inspiration came at the same time as Oonga's exposure to the neo-folkloric slow cumbia tech sound while travelling. He put the two together and this special Botanas was born. His dear friend Ana adapted the words into Spanish and sang the melodies (as well as doing the art).
Oonga´s music captured our ears right away and these three tracks are the perfect soundtrack to the end of the summer for those of us in the norther hemisphere or to welcome the end of the Winter and brighter times for all those down south!
Oh and for those that download there is a very special hidden track included in your download ;)
