Barcelona producer Grey Filastine and Indonesian singer Nova Ruth team up again for an intoxicatingly bewildering, styliscically promiscuous, and thoroughly beguiling exploration of internationalist dance music. You’ll hear trap, footwork, neo-soul, electro-flamenco, and a variety of multicultural influences at work here, but what the duo has really succeeded at doing is creating an indigenous music for a country without borders. Filastine’s microscopically detailed production cradles Ruth’s voice like a jewel box filled with diamond dust, and the beats are just as compelling as her gorgeous singing. For all library collections.
