Abbacaxi has served a long and proper musical apprenticeship. Now stepping out on his own, he has a fresh and heartfelt sound that brings positive vibrations and good times. It draws on his love of jazz, funk and disco with very modern dynamics. With his new single and video 'Endless' we dive deeper into the world of Abbacaxi. The title track from his upcoming EP, due in April, is a moody mixture of hypnotic beats and euphoric tones. Bringing to mind artists like Massive Attack and Radiohead, Abbacaxi is now showing that he is here to stay with this atmospheric banger. Expect to hear great things from the Dublin-based artist in 2022.
With Endless, set to release as a part of his debut EP (of the same name) in April 2022, you have a big hint at what to expect from Abbacaxi. Though his fun, effervescent character is reflected in his music, he is just as able to break your heart with his melancholic chords and neo-soul vocals. Musicians as versatile as Abbacaxi don't come along too often, so strap in and enjoy the ride. About his new project Abbacaxi says... "I experienced a lot of highs and lows in a short period of time but I realised I wasn't the only one around me feeling depressed from time to time. For every really bad experience, there is an amazing one waiting around the corner. Life is so much easier when you remember that"
The volume goes gradually up on Endless and when the voice comes in, it intially sounds as from a distance before becoming clearer. Music plays an important role in this case, frees the imagination of those who hear it and lets them interpret it their own way. Isn't this the essence of what music in general is about? Once you let it out there it starts to live the life on its own.
Endless was mixed by Ross Fortune at The Love Nest & Ken McCabe at Wolfhound Studios. Mastered by Ivan Jackman at Hellfire Studios
