Inanna’s new EP “Cariad” released on Florida’s Dubporn records is a musical bass journey into the dimension of chilled back vibes. The EP consists of one single, plus three remixes from the onetime garage/2 step stalwart of North America. This release moves into a much more melodic and sexy direction with a smoothing downbeat sound that works perfect for any late night after-party set or on a chilled out Sunday relaxation session. Ptr1’s remix adds some broken beats that add tempo and bass, but keep the blissful sound intact. I personally really enjoy this version. The experimental mix add a 4×4 kick for movement, but doesn’t overpower the heart and soul of this tune. Dubporn really put together a nice release providing a track that will appeal to all different tastes.
While talking to Inanna about this release she was really excited about her current project, “Dalliance”. She really thought this was a huge step up in her production and was really excited to get the tracks out to all of us. As of now, it isn’t signed with any label, but I’m sure we will hear the finished tracks soon!
I had the privilege to ask a few questions to Inanna about her journey into music.
My inspiration comes from my experience, mostly my journey of self realization, truth and light. It is always an expression of emotion, and a way to creatively express and realize myself. I think with Cariad especially when you watch the video, it is also apparent I love faeries, and am inspired by nature, and beauty in general. The story of the video is one of the passage of that moving towards light and truth. An emergence of the truth of the soul. I filmed it at my house that I grew up in that is now empty. In the ‘dream’ I discover who I am, breaking the mask. It is actually based on a faerie dream I have where a young girl searches chasing her faerie self, when she finds her she awakens to the truth she is the faerie, the being of light.
The song I originally worked on with the intention of creating beauty. I love melody driven music that carries your imagination and heart to pleasant bright altitudes. Cariad I think differs from some of my more structured album future garage/bass music I am working on now, and is very different from the kirtan devotional music I am working on that I am singing on under the name Sat Avtar Kaur. The original Cariad version had so much heart and depth to the melody the beats were just a little sprinkling of structure.
I started teaching myself maybe a decade ago but couldn’t seriously start getting into it until about four years ago. Even then I didn’t have a permanent studio until a year and a half ago and I could still use some upgrades with equipment but I have what I really need. My first track came out in 2001 I think when I was dj’ing heavily in the North American garage/2-step scene. Iv recently listened back to it, Iv come a long way but I appreciate it, it wasn’t as bad as I remember, in fact it had a great little groove. I’m always reaching though.
