So, what exactly does Suenara mean? To be honest, it doesn’t even matter – we are already in love. GAIIA is a new collaboration by Canadian/French duo Giselle Janette and Aimée Jagou, combining electronic beats with eclectic sounds from diverse cultural influences. The EP encompasses deep-house production, infused with soulful and jazzy vocals.
The first couple of tracks on the album are remixed by Nacho Marco, a respected DJ and producer in the Spanish scene and the founder of Loudeast Records. These two versions of Suenara – “Suenara (Nacho Marco Acid Remix)” and “Suenara (Nacho Marco Acidub),” are infused with a distinct range of beats and sounds, adding a whole new element to the original “Suenara” track.
As the listener moves on to “Suenara” and “W.A.V.E.,” it is evident that precise coordination and planning went into these tracks. The structure of the music is unconventional, putting the audience in a trance-like state. “Suenara” inspires some funky dancing; in fact, the music video is a perfect depiction of the song’s dark, feminine, and ominous vibes. Sara Yacobi-Harris is the star of the video – showcasing her flawless figure skating and choreographic skills.
Last but not least, “W.A.V.E.” transforms the listener into a meditative space, while the sound of rolling waves engulfs you. Light some candles and enjoy the full experience of this track. GAIIA is a name to watch out for – they have more to share with the world.
