In an era when electronic music stardom can be as close as a light-up mask, clever anonymous alias, and management-directed collaborations,Mortinus has avoids the gimmicks of EDM and concentrates on a universal World Music production palette that even lovers of ambient may crave and downtempo recipients are looking to hijack.
Mortinus’ music is of exceptional variety, yet of coherence, in a genre where it’s possible to listen to the most diverse instruments and voices mixed with electronic music. These instrumental pieces were born into a groove explosion of world music and a strong desire for things spiritual, as well as certain tastes for cultural exploration.
