A1. Invocation 001
A2. Invocation 001 (Yoruba Soul Remix)
Invocation 001 is a tender, slow-burner of a track, opening with soft bossa nova style rhythms that gradually give way to Poso’s gorgeous gravelly harmonies. Permeated with gentle guitar strums, soothing strings and distinctive percussion, Poso’s mellow music will appeal to lovers of indie folkster Jose Gonzalez and popular jazz outfit Portico Quartet alike with its accessible, soulful vibe.
The original track has also been given a bassy reworking by Yoruba Soul, the moniker of house producer Osunlade. Displaying a touch of the tropical with an emphasis on fast-paced, Cuban-esque percussive elements, the remix has already attracted airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Mistajam.
