Kachina follow up on last year’s floor-shaking 'Love Hz' EP with the highly anticipated Ayahuasca EP — the ninth release on NexGen's Affectionate Grooves imprint and the first of 2018.
For the past couple of years the Leicester-based trio have gained support from across the scene for their "window-rattling" take on UKG and house, receiving airplay from the likes of Toddla T, Annie Nightingale and DJ Monki (BBC Radio 1) and Marcus Nasty (Rinse FM). They have also had features and exclusives mixes for Mixmag, DJ Mag, Aphropunk and Crash magazine.
This 5-track EP Kicks off with ‘Maasai Mara’ which builds from tribal drums and shrieks into a euphoric and house jam destined for dance floor greatness. A HUGE track for festival crowds. Title track 'Ayahuasca' takes you into the looking glass for a deep and spacey take on UKG, with cosmic synths and haunting flutes that throwback to early Skream. ‘The Angel’ keeps the energy high with seductive synths that slink through pockets of garage groove and swells of low-down bass and "wob." ‘What Kind’ follows a similar pattern but with some serious dubwise rudeness, and 'I' combines all the best parts of the EP with emotional vox chops, heartfelt pads and delicate piano melodies layered on a mean rumbling bassline.
Listen, buy, and enjoy! :)
