Portable aka Bodycode
Musiq kicks off it’s fifteenth anniversary in 2019 with ‘A New To Blood Moon’, the first ever release from long-time friend and electronic pioneer, Bodycode aka Portable. The first in a series of collectable twelve-inches with accompanying artwork by Stefan Marx, this two-track release finds the South-African artist on dynamic and emotional form.
Collaborating on both sides with Niq. E, a new singer from Cape Town, a keen sense of catharsis and a dreamy, driving beat runs through the soft-centre of ‘Moving On’, which eases pleasingly into ‘The Way’, a busier, more vocal cut throughout which a similar sense of wistfulness is bolstered by acidic modulations and earnest house chords, rolling with restraint and class for over ten minutes.
Sophisticated deep house as only this pairing can deliver, ‘A New To Blood Moon’ is sophisticated and sensitive dance music guaranteed to win over hearts and minds.
