Surging from the variegated depths of global psychedelia, Tel-Aviv music producer Maor Hasbani weaves an entrancing tale of style and technical sophistication in his downtempo project, Gumi. A richly layered blend of cultural and creative influences infused with the vitality of the international electronica scene, Gumi’s debut album ‘Underwater’ draws its listeners into a flowing ecosystem of texture-rich beats brimming with life, color, and shapeshifting musical complexity. Drifting between the rhythmic currents of psydub and the opulent progressions of mid-tempo bass, Gumi’s elegant creations return to Desert Trax to conjure a tone of mystique and uplifting energy aimed at mind-wanderers and movement-lovers alike. Accented by collaborations with Kaya Project, Symbolico, and Soru that move into equally deep and beatific sonic spaces, Gumi’s ‘Underwater’ paints a surrealistic picture of life beneath the surface of the global dance floor.
