Boomkat Product Review:
Energetic, synthy, percussive crossings of dancehall, electro, dub and afropop, introducing a young trio from Geneva. Ivory is the standout.
"Amami, no one knows where this name comes from. But it fits well: the sound of the band itself is also mysterious. A big filtered siren sound, stolen from a Brixton dump, a dub voice reverberated, the synthetic drum kit of a Yemeni wedding. And a heavy and dirty bass, which deeply moves you.The trio is preparing to turn the world upside down with his firstEP, the well named GIANT, which could also mean their sound, energy or inventiveness.
In five pieces, we are propelled into a moving world, between heaven and earth. Drum machines, digital trumpets, huge delay, Casiotone, mini-Korg take control. The trance begins in an afrobeat, aphrodisiac rhythm. We don't know where we are... Kingston? Johannesburg? Jakarta? Or just everywhere at once? In one EP, the trio invents a swiss voodoo, and nothing will be the same."
