Ruhi EP

by Zakir



The Sol Selectas family expands to Moscow Russia, with a debut EP from Zakir.

The titles "Ruhi" and "Meree Aatma" translate to the same meaning: "my Soul". These words are also terms of endearment for a person's lover, and Zakir tells the story of two Oriental love stories. "Ruhi" is an Arabian tale with a magical oud, while "Meree Aatma" is an Indian romance with an enchanting flute. The live instrumentation blends beautifully with warm bass and arpeggios for an irrisistable groove. For the remix, Just Emma from Under Your Skin Records, strips down the original "Ruhi", creating a deeper slow track of beautiful Arabesque techno. Sol Selectas label head Sabo transforms "Meree Aatma" into a percussive workout with lush strings and sitar for serious dance floor momentum. The artwork by Helia Jamali captures the spirit and soul, of the female love and energy we hear in the music.
