For their second release, Mantra Collective take this opportunity to showcase two rising Australian based artists, Venda and Mike Watts who combine their sound for Agave, an introspective cut with an undeniable groove. Metallic resonances swirl throughout the spectrum, purposefully fused with distant spatial intricacies. Energy shifts and flows throughout the track providing heightened moments of tension and release.
Mike Watts brings a complimentary approach with his meditative solo work Ridjimiraril. Pulsating low end creates a foundation from which melodic ideas, natural sounds and stark moments of abstracted sonic interest can dance throughout the stereo field.
On remix duties, OdD flip Agave with their undeniably unique approach. The arrangement develops and evolves, harnessing melodic sections of the original while modulating sounds and concepts are translated with expert guidance and finesse.
