Auma returns to Enig'matik with his sophomore EP, entitled; "fables". A producer with an incredible talent for thought provoking soundscapes and melodic entrancing structures, fables nestles perfectly with Auma's trademark lullaby driven arrangements, whilst also experimenting with a dash of delicately woven funk grooves, all presented impeccably with a true musicians ear, a definitive journey from start to finish.
From the inredible collaboration with the Wednesday Experiment "Here and now", beautifully encapsulating vocals weave in and out of incandescent melodic hooks, a digital dance of juxtaposition and contrast presented in a warm bed of atmospherics, the listener is left with a hymn to the edges of our world. "Float" explores more experimental funk stylings, where Auma experiments with vocal processing and intricate rhythmics, a seamless flow of high production values and infectious gating where thoughts almost become frozen as hypnotic swung out grooves take hold.
Whilst Fables is a carefully crafted cohesive release, Auma manages to make each track an extremely memorable and original journey, the end result is a release that will require multiple doses for the full immersive effect to take hold, and will be come a staple of sombre thought provoking times that require the perfect counterpart soundtrack.
Rounding out the release is a remix of aura's "Blue skin reflect" by the ever consistent editing scissors of Griff taking the original into his sunset drenched soundscapes and tightly knit grooves, a lush contrast to the original and the first of what we hope to be many collaborations from the pair of talented Australian producers.
