Kooku presents ‘nuku/jugular’
Share This Article
There are artists who, in order to go beyond their sound, have to get rid of their original name and create another, but then there are others who, to go further, have to rediscover themselves, to create a sound whose starting point is not born so much of the attempt to cross borders and to recover them. This is the case of the producer Kooku who presents ‘nuku/jugular’.
In ‘nuku/jugular’, released on the Purified Records label, they come back and they do it, resulting in a serious work, carefully cared for, that lends itself to starting it and not coming back to reality until it’s finished: the headphones are like the bottle of oxygen that allows you to dive to the bottom of this great sound rotation, of this cosmic orbit, and be there in a state of hypnotic fascination.
In this world where speed is desperately sought and attention deficit is so high, such an album will be misunderstood among many people, even dismissed as really important. But you just have to have the patience and the will to stop, to breathe, to sink into it, to hold on there as long as you can, and admire its interior.
