Dijf Sanders often sounds like he is touring the world and documenting what he finds with superbly inventive albums that mesh the culture and heritage of where he has been with his own electronic roots. While he has spent much time in Asia, his forthcoming album ‘SUPRA’ focuses on Georgia. Following the roots of his previous albums, Dijf has spent plenty of time gathering field recordings to mix into an exotic electronic world. During his trip, he was particularly taken with Georgian polyphonic folk singing. This means there are usually multiple melodies at play, and Georgian singing often oscillates around powerful melancholic motifs too.
‘Water of Chailuri’ is the lead single and showcases the vocal talents of the Amer-Imeri Folk Etnic Ensemble. You’ll also find a chuniri – a traditional Georgian bowed instrument – mixed in with the tape-chewed synths. It is a heavy, almost prog-synth-rock track that sounds uniquely Dijf Sanders and sets up the album ‘SUPRA’ nicely.
Enjoy ‘Water of Chaluri’ below, the single is out now. ‘SUPRA’ is currently slated for release on the 10th of November. For more info on all things Dijf Sanders, follow him on Bandcamp.
