Playing with a broad range of rhythms and melodies inspired by his native Brazil, the Middle East, and beyond, Kurup uses music as a conduit through which to consider questions on life, existence, and what it is to be human. Choice philosophical musings disguised as dancefloor tracks, Espelho Prata E.P. is the result of deep personal reflection, technical experimentation, and a desire to encourage thoughtful connections in others.
About the Release
About the Artist
Hailing from Brazil’s vast Cerrado region and now based in Porto, Portugal, Kurup’s weighty, downtempo tracks sound like shadows creeping across a forest floor: inexorable, mysterious, strangely alive. The Cerrado is home to the most biologically diverse tropical savannahs in the world, and Kurup’s music reflects a sense of being surrounded by a living, breathing landscape. He builds his songs out of earthy kicks and faint tendrils of melody that slice through a canopy of atmospheric delays, and then populates the empty space with clicks, rustles, and rattles, evoking an environment brimming with life.
