Continuing from her ‘Conscious Cunt’ EP, Aïsha Devi’s debut album ‘Of Matter And Spirit’ sees the Swiss-Nepalese producer, vocalist and label owner resume her dark and intricate self-journey, described as both an identity search and spiritual quest challenging our perception of reality - the disconnection between matter and spirit in our society.
Devi tackles dense subjects on the album, confronting metaphysical constructs as well as political ones. Amongst a myriad of topics, the album includes comment on the role of media and consumerism, anthems for collective mental and spiritual resistance and R’n’B incantations about burning the ego and finding inner peace.
"My process of creation takes its source in meditation, mantras, shamanism, healing frequencies... the idea is to trigger a social and spiritual awareness through music." Aïsha Devi
The ten tracks wax and wane, providing a moving landscape of interconnected themes and experimental techniques. Using sound and its vibrations to create a sense of healing and awareness, Devi’s production dilutes and skews traditional formats. Crafting vortices of haunting sounds from her own vocals and production, her work is deeply self-reflective, yet simultaneously taps into the collective consciousness in order to awaken our senses.
