Burgeoning experimental electronic producer Ka Fu has joined forces with Lama’s Dream on ‘Rain Catcher (Ka Fu Remix)’ released on the 14th of February, via Alae Records. n 2019, Ka Fu burst onto the scene with his album Encoding: Master, an eclectic collection of tracks characterised by Ka Fu’s pacy production and ability to convey a sense of unyielding forward motion through his sound. Ka Fu’s sound is endlessly inspired by the likes of Depeche Mode and, more recently, wave music heavyweights Noah B and Kareful. The remix is an amalgamation of experiences, interests and talents, drawing parallels to the organic-meets-electronic sounds of Boards of Canada, Bonobo and Koresma. ‘Rain Catcher (Ka Fu Remix)’ is a deep and contemplative offering showcasing Ka Fu’s ability to craft immersive soundscapes. Pairing the intricate organic guitar work of Lama’s Dream with crisply edited samples, Ka Fu carves out a space for each sonic element to take root and bloom as the track progresses. A commanding bassline flows beneath silvery synths, sweeping percussion, and ethereal vocals. Small gestures string together as the track gradually warms and fills out, suspending the listener in a state of blissful, healing hypnosis.
Speaking on the remix, Ka Fu says: “The original tune itself is a piece of art and the remixes from other artists like Ivan Latyshev were on a super high level so that was a real challenge for me. That’s why I decided to go the other way when creating my vision. I basically repeated my meditation practise and recalled the sounds that were born in my head during this mind silence mode. So that’s how the main element came out – the bassline – deep and on a certain frequency that corresponds to my internal breathing sound so I’ve just recorded it into my mind and then put in notes. So all the rest came out around this centre bassline flow and literally the whole creation process I was floating and talking with that lower frequency melody… Such a unique experience – the song created by feelings and not by specific rules.”
