djogo is an artist from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, but currently based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He has a truly one-of-a-kind approach to his music. His sound could be described as experimental, but what one really loves about it, is that it’s far from self-indulgent. Some artists tend to fall too deep into the experimental rabbit hole, often forgetting about those elements that make a song special: the melody, energy, and the overall feel of the arrangement! In djogo’s case, this talented artist did not forget any of the aforementioned ingredients to the perfect mix on his new single, “Livre.”
The song begins with a really infectious bassline, filled with groove and rhythm. The drums hit soon after, and the groove it’s very special: it’s quite funk-inspired, but it’s actually as gritty and direct as a really good rock drum, with each hit bringing a lot of power to the table. A really clever use of the drum parts to build an intricate rhythm section! The vocal samples on this release are truly special, adding some texture to the track. You will really love the arpeggiated synths, particularly the way they create strong accents with the drum fills and add to the climatic build-up of the song. The electric guitars bring an edge of melody and funkiness to the mix, but they also contribute to the lush atmospherics of this release.
Ultimately, this music could be described as a mix of fusion, funk, chill, and experimental tones, yet, it is catchy and completely unpretentious. This is perfect music to groove to and to chill. This one is a perfect addition to any study playlist because it’s got such a distinctively smooth vibe that helps you relax and focus on whatever you’re doing at the moment.
