Ambious Records continue to their push in connecting local platforms with global artists with UK based duo Fluida and their Asuba EP. The pair have made a big name for themselves by creating smooth, melodic music that often incorporates traditional instrumentation such as hang drums. Previously releasing on labels like Anjunadeep and Kindisch, their sound fits perfectly with the Cape Town originating crew that is Ambious.
Featuring 2 original tracks the Asuba EP is Fluida at their atmospheric best. The title track is a slow, ambient arrangement with percussive tribal elements and a welcoming energy, perfect for that set intro. Yamma goes in a deeper, more emotional direction with lots of hypnotic subtleties and closes things off with a more direct energy.
