Kupu Kupu

A 5 track downtempo ep (23m 35s) — released October 27th 2017 on Heard And Felt

Audio-visual, electronic-acoustic, spiritual-physical, vocal-instrumental. Multi-faceted Melbourne artist Cy Gorman represents these dualities and many more.

Cy has explored the intersection of latin, beats and synths on his previous releases for Heard and Felt as well as remixes for Los Charly's Orchestra and recently San Lazaro (Hope Street Recordings). These releases have earned him support from Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff, Soil & Pimp Sessions, Richard Kingsmill (Triple J) and many more.

On the Kupu Kupu EP he turns his attention to more Asian influences. Hati Hati starts with a streetwise 808 beat which takes a summery turn with the addition of ukelele and vocals in both English and Indonesian. The moody, epic Rasbhari Killah is like a Wu Tang-produced soundtrack for a Bollywood martial arts film. Hipgnosis mixes a more Afro-Cuban rhythm with some surprising samples for a tune that could be uptempo or downtempo depending on your perspective. An Ennio Styles edit keeps it raw and more on the uptempo side. Finally, Hold is a nearly acoustic ballad with some subtle electronic touches, like James Blake hit the chipmunk button.
