Three adjectives to describe you…
Chill, meditative, emotional.
Can you tell us about your latest project?
It’s “Colourwave Deluxe” that keeps providing shelter for the modern human through music, where listeners can sink to themselves and their thoughts. ‘Colourwave’ is a multi-layered concept release that on the basis is trying to represent a path to self-awareness by using the sounds of the nature mixed up with precise and modern beats. It also hardly relies on the messages and instructions of the nature that surrounds us – especially the sea – and on the top of that Belau continued the geographical concept – familiar from The Odyssey-era – that this time reflects musically and visually to the thousand colours of the Caribbean area featuring many international female talents. Colourwave Deluxe contains remixes from Ken Fan, Coss, Hillsdom, and Ohxalá, some night versions, and live sessions.
A collaboration of you dream…
Beth Gibbons (Portishead).
