The DJ from Madrid known as Latrama has released his latest EP album, “Qì.” The record comprises six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes, making for a comprehensive treatment of Latrama's current material. It has been proudly published on the Chandra Sound Records independent music label as the company's official debut release. Elegant, spellbinding, and bringing an exotic mix of traditional eastern music and cutting-edge electronica, Latrama's “Qì” is a soothing and intriguing listen from start to finish for fans of any music genre.
Latrama cites as main artistic influences several legends of the Asian-underground subgenre, including Talvin Singh, State of Bengal, Karsh Kale, Bandish Projekt, and Nitin Sawhney, as well as more western-minded DJs like Hint, Diesler, and Malente. The combination of these various inspirations results in the spectacularly multicultural, international flavors of “Qì,” distinguishing the EP as something far more sophisticated than just a common electronica record.
The album has been described as “a fine-tuned mix of Indian, global and classical sounds together with electronic breaks to transport your mind to other horizons, from your daily commute to the camp rave festival.”
Latrama is a multi-instrumentalist, music producer and renowned DJ of world music sounds set to rhythmic electronic breaks. A veteran of the electronic music scene, Latrama's career has found him performing as a resident DJ for many venues, countless live shows, radio appearances, spots in TV ads and reels, music conferences, intimate club gigs, giant music festivals, and also in collaborations playing Indian tabla and as a remixer. Latrama has performed at locales around the world like Madrid, Berlin, Mumbai, London, Barcelona, Lisbon, Beijing, San Francisco, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, and a great many others.
