Conceived in the early months of 2012, Wishes is the brainchild of twin soul-stirrer Akwetey of New York band Dragons of Zynth. Akwetey explains Wishes as a 'lab' created to unearth a few more D.O.Z song ideas while twin and album producer Aku toured 2012 in the globetrotting Santigold. From their early sessions with Massive Attack to work with TV on the Radio, D.O.Z's music has peeked into a world of crystalized harmonies and fiery landscapes. Here, Wishes weaves minimalist electronics over a bed of slippery beats, blips and r&b.
The live performance has featured an array of musicians to boot. Members of D.O.Z, DJ/producer Ritchie Dagger, and multi-instrumentalist Pauli The PSM of Gorillaz Sound System/Kindness have all graced the Wishes stage. Shows with Fugiya & Miyagi, TheeSatisfaction and Mykki Blanco hint at a new futurist soul spectrum, perhaps not far from where the twin dragons may journey next.
