The new franco-belgian label, Electronical Reeds, is proud to announce its first release. True to the spirit of the label which is the discovery of new talents and the promotion of their work, the choice was naturally focused on the new project, Optional Feast, composed by the artists and sound engineers, Xavier Gueurten and Luc Tytgat. The first has been mixing since many years and has an unequalled sense of fun, the second regularly collaborates with leading artists and labels such as PIAS, Fnac Music or EMI. Enriched by these many experiments, the two accomplices began in producing and present us now their first title, Zahyara.
This release takes us into the world of ethnic Tech House, tinged with the warm and captivating sounds from Africa. On those tribal and festive rhythmics, this track is gradually taking off to reveal all its richness with the arrival of flutes that is lost in a chain of delay. From this title, a positive energy emerges through a round bass and a break, revealing the magical joy of African songs. As a final burst of summer in the early autumn, Zahyara does not fail to bewitch a dancefloor. The In Da House Mix version, for its part, sees the emergence of gimiks with more typed sounds which will captivate some people and offers a much more House version of this track.
