Aura Safari - Island Life [Church]
Church as an outlet have always ensured they are pushing the boundaries of dance and electronic music, while retaining their melodic and jazz-infused sound at their core. This has historically come in the form of fantastically crafted sampled pieces incorporating various live elements; this time though, they offer up @AuraSafari, a fully fledged band with a full sumptuous LP for your listening pleasure.
Aura consists of, Alessandro Deledda, Andrea Moretti, Lorenzo Lavoratori, Daniele Melloni and Nicholas Iammatteo. The band started with the meeting of a musician and a group of dj's and producers coming from different musical backgrounds and generations. Aura Safari is the union of various musical eras and influences such as jazz fusion, 80's boogie, world music, Italo house, balearic beats and jazz funk.
We're lucky enough to feature 'Island Life', the most dance-floor friendly track on the LP. Pure island feels emanate from the tracks soul, with soft yet vibrant tones riding on the back of the swung and dusty stonk which anchors this cut to the shore.
