Music: Àbáse – Invocation

Budapest-born and now Berlin based artist Àbáse comes through with his debut EP titled Invocation. Rich with textures and energy, bringing rhythmic, tribal grooves and jazz tones throughout, this project is an excellent insight into his impeccable skills as a composer and overall musician.

7 tracks and 40 minutes in length, this project is full of incredibly dense tribal grooves and textures that vary in tone and style as well. Eclectic in nature, tracks like “Invocation” and “Sambo” featuring Stevo Atambire creating West-African grooves, with the latter track especially powerful with emphatic vocals. “Align” is one of the highlights for me as it features the talented Wayne Snow who brings gorgeous vocals to the track. The keys on the record are sublime and the arrangements and depth of textures throughout this track are absolutely stunning. Gbé Ra N’lè [Get Off Di Floor]” is stellar in composition as it features tight grooves and tribal rhythms inspired by West-African Afrobeat influences. Swirling saxophone and trumpets are complemented by guitar and basslines that add so much character to the record. “Ashek Ellil” features Moroccan musician Saïd Tichiti in a meditative and beautiful closer to the album.

Overall, Àbáse exceeds all expectations with this new release. Invocation is beautiful, soulful and incredibly upbeat with a lot of character. Listen to his debut project below via Bandcamp, and don’t forget to support! Released via Cosmic Compositions.
