Kiaro – Recollect (TTR080) by Kiaro

And for our final release of 2021, we’re happy to welcome back the Israeli artist Roman Galperin, aka Kiaro, 1/2 of the duo Biota, also released by us earlier this year.

Kiaro is a multidisciplinary artist, drawing inspiration from every bit of spirit inside the machine, and every mechanism within the organic.
Nowadays located in yet another cabin, on a mountain ridge in northern Israel, making tracks, teaching music production, and studying biology.

To talk about the EP, that brings us 4 tracks of a deliciously groovy downtempo, no one better than the artist himself:

“Recollect is inspired by shifting from a hectic city to the countryside, settling down in a wooden cabin next to a forest.
It was meant to be a temporary thing, a break from the upbeat urban tempo, and eager to make the most of it I spent the daytime outdoors, roaming and exploring.
Daily walks in the woods had become a ritual, my attention always gravitating towards nature’s aesthetics, intrigued by the details of what I saw and heard.
The sounds, sights and smells made it easy to forget what’s outside this place, like being sealed in a time capsule.
Here and there I tried documenting by taking field recordings of all the sonic elements that piqued my curiosity.
I did plenty of reading, mainly history and science. Did plenty of daydreaming too.
It felt like everything was finally slowing down, especially at night sitting by the fire and tuning into the music playing in my studio nearby. It was an opportunity to contemplate and recollect, weave intricate plans and reach for new ideas, bring up memories, recent and also really distant ones, from other life-times.”

This has been an important year for Tropical Twista, with lots of changes and new challenges. We wouldn’t be here without our dear community, so a huge thank you to everyone that supports us!
