The fearless frontgirl of Lisbon’s underground queer collective Circa AD is back.
Odete has exploded onto the Lisbon scene, playing alongside heavy hitters such as DJ Haram, Badsista and Mykki Blanco. A visual artist, producer and DJ, the impressive range of her abilities are demonstrated in this release. Water Bender tells the story of a heroine, akin to a Greek tragedy, whose gift to bend water ultimately leads to her demise. Sampling tactile and visceral sounds from her hometown, Odete’s ability to wrap us up in her tragic tale is undeniable—leaving us cold, wet and alone in the club.
Daniel Periera and Oliver Mitcham capture Odete’s vision with duey, mystic artwork and type, with the graphics overseen by New Scenery’s own Marnie Hamilton. Tracks feature BLEID and DRVGジラ with remixes from Herlander & Jasper Jarvis, and it is mastered by Colin Moir.
We’re delighted to premiere “Sangue,” an epic 4-minute explosion of intricate rhythm and destructive bass bound to bring you both into and out of your body.
Water Bender will be available to stream and purchase on March 27th 2020.
