Listen to Vultur
Colombia might not be the first place you'd think to find an electronic producer making psychedelic, deeply soulful future garage, but the home of magical realism is a natural source of the intoxicating rhythmic and melodic influences displayed on Okraa's sophomore EP, Vultur, named for Colombia's national symbol - the condor. With artwork by celebrated Glasgow visual artist Konx-Om-Pax (Warp Records, Rustie, Mogwai, Jamie Lidell), Okraa, aka Juan Carlos Torres Alonso, has created an EP of dizzying, euphoric intensity and hyper-real colour.
OKRAA has played shows in Colombia's most representative festivals including: Estéreo Picnic (next to SBTRKT and Chet Faker) and Mutek Colombia. He has also toured Europe and the UK including shows in Spain, Sweden, Austria, Slovakia, England and Scotland. His work has received national composition awards in Colombia.
