Adiel is up next on Kangding Ray’s new ara label, following her Cavallina EP made in collaboration with Donato Dozzy. Musicofilia is the Italian artist’s first record outside of her own label.

Due on July 26, the EP is inspired by Oliver Sacks’ book “Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain” (2007) where the neurologist author depicts the cognitive effects of sounds, addressing the impact of repetition in music and its power to move and heal us. It’s full of intricate rhythms and captivating melodies, and suits a variety of spatio-temporal dynamics, but is crafted for the club. 

Adiel is a resident DJ at Goaultrabeat at Rome’s Goa Club, and founder of the Danza Tribale label, where she made her debut in 2016 with Anatomia Del Cavallo. 

Ara is a new label curated by David Letellier (a.k.a Kangding Ray), aiming to highlight artists with unique sonic identities that seeks to induce deep emotion through sound. This is the label’s second release. 

Musicofilia lands July 26, and in the support of the release we’re streaming “The Call,” a wistful techno jam with a throbbing pulse, in full via the player below.
