Kicking things off in a percussive and instrumental groove are French electronic duo The Geek x Vrv with their new single "Kanagawa Waves 1831." Coming off their debut LP Time Machine, "Kawanga Waves 1831" feels like an ode to worldly sounds, complete with string instruments, electro-soul based melodies, and support by trumpet master Balkan Bump and French producer Fakear.
For fans of festivals like Electric Forest, this one feels fit for an early evening sunset groove that kicks you off right into the neon nights. Aptly put in their words, the track will send you into a "head-nodding haze." Give it a listen above and be sure to catch the duo on their North American tour. All dates are listed here.
