Savoir | Zinli Rhythm
Two of Australia’s most exploratory producers keep on exploring. At first I thought Savoir was some bolt-out-of-the-blue discovery with no information to go on, but a couple of super-taxing Google searches (not really) revealed this to be the new project from Perth producers Andrew Sinclair and James Ireland.
A quiet choral flow is interrupted by the triumphant sound of Africa; the pulse and the rhythms and the sheer joy of this open-air musical experience. Once percussion sets its stall, the song gives way to one of the best choruses you’ll hear all year. Like how I’d imagine a M.I.A and Jai Paul collaboration to sound, maybe with the helping hand of David Byrne. Stop dreaming about such a possibility: It’s basically right here.
