Pre order Vinyl: Soon at Bandcamp
Fanzine Records announced an upcoming release by Roi is coming out this august 2021. The new material is a very recommendable 4-track EP that has been entitled ‘Crunia‘ and features two original mixes, also includes remixes from renowned British producer Carl Finlow, and equally prolific German artist The Exaltics. Stay tuned and check out the full details below.
The transition from rural to urban, from the coast of Dexo to the city of La Coruña, is the central thread of the Crunia EP. Roi’s music is inextricably linked to the geography of his home province of A Coruña, and to his love for both the urban and rural environments of this isolated region by the Atlantic.
Having taken the leap from city life to a more peaceful existence by the coast some years ago, Roi chronicled his newfound freedom and isolation on the Dexo EP, released on Fanzine in 2019. Isolated from his peers, this autonomy gives him the freedom to explore new methods of expression.
A continuation of the story but with a clear divide in between, on the Crunia EP he metaphorically returns to the asphalt jungle, exploring the narcotic atmospheres and extroverted nature of this environment. While Maianca represents the beginning of the transition by the ocean, Crunia (the ancient name for La Coruña), represents the metropolitan destination. Remixes from renowned British producer Carl Finlow, and equally prolific German artist The Exaltics were chosen to maintain this trajectory.
The journey is further illustrated in the artwork, a photographic collage travelling from Maianca to La Coruña, giving a concrete visual representation to this mental journey.
