Brooklyn N.Y. based electronic dreamscaper Kai Altair has released her new single, “Shadow Dance” from her forthcoming album Dreamwalker (out in early 2015).
Kai is a pillar of the underground arts community in Brooklyn – working in a wide variety of media – from music to dance, theater, films, and more.
Her forthcoming album, Dreamwalker, was created with the acclaimed subsonic and live percussion group Sub Swara.
It explores topics such as lucid dreaming, time travel, metamorphosis, and sacred bliss – all with the aim of evoking alternate realities and to transport the audience into a dream world.
We have been listening to the single Shadow Dance:
A pattering rainfall of beats becomes intimately connected to angular droning tube-like sounds.
This alchemy creates a voracious fusion of danceable vibes that come to life in your cans.
Kai’s voice is pure and mature.
Never purely ornamental, it ripples and glides around the organic nature of the accompaniments – it’s bit pouty, always warm and certainly earthy ‘n’ waxy.
This is a kaleidoscope of naturally fertile sounds…
Accomplished by combining strong resonances with a sultry vocal performance.
