India and Eastern Europe were cultural hubs centuries before western influences evolved their own musical tastes. Recognizing the importance of these musical influences, NiaSounds has created a brand new mix. Sacred offers a collection of tracks which foster an appreciation for these musical origins while also promoting relaxation.
“All Colours” by Bob Holroyd begins the mix with an eclectic somber sound. The beat of the bongo drums build a bridge rooted in “Factor 30” by Bjarno. “Sunday Morning, Up All Night” by NYXYSS transitions into a more electronic base, while still maintaining the low beat which flows through each track. The listener is then transported to the Middle East with a magical sound opening up into “One Hundred Lights (Grouch Remix)” by Kaya Project and “Tala Odessey (Drumspyder Remix)” by Desert Dwellers with eastern influenced chords which manage to balance deep bass notes with an upbeat tempo. “Torch” continues this vibe, intermixing latin and eastern cultural sounds for a track that seeps into the listener’s bones and makes them want to dance.
Shaman’s Dream’s “Afronaut” shakes up the album, replacing dark drums with lighter maracas and cymbals as well as vocals. “Bollywood Drums” explains it’s signature sound in the title, playing with ambient bells and African drums. The Indian influence continues in “Mumbai Madness” by Mashti where inspirational words mingle with background sounds. Sacred closes with a mellow combination of electronic chords and wind instruments in Troels Hammer’s “Father Space” releasing the listener back into reality.
