Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for experimental and challenging music and use it to inspire my creativity and many aspects of my daily drifts, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

Dakota Suite - Notes

Photo: Yasuyoshi Chiba

Dakota Suite & Vampillia

THE SEA IS NEVER FULL
The origin of this collaboration began two months prior to the Fukushima disaster in Japan. Dakota Suite had been touring Japan with their friends from the Japanese band Vampillia and had been in several coastal locations in Wakayama as well as places near to Fukushima. The tsunami was very upsetting for Chris Hooson and David Buxton from Dakota Suite who then set about making music to reflect this overwhelming sadness and loss for Japan. They approached Vampillia to work on these somber reflective songs for the sea.
This collaboration is highly recommended and in remembrance of the disaster that cost the life of over 18000 people which will be 10 years next 11th Mach, I couldn't think of a more fitting piece of music than my favorite track of the album "The sea is never full - Part 2". At 27 minutes it demands your full attention but the reward comes in bundles of honest emotion.
