David Starfire & Arula Release “Keepsake”

This terrific track also features Drumspyder & Jef Stott

Emerging vocalist Arula has teamed up with global bass music pioneer, David Starfire for a refreshing and spiritually rich single. Entitled “Keepsake,” David Starfire layers Arula’s ethereal vocals over Drumspyder’s hypnotic percussion, and world music virtuoso Jef Stott’s masterful Oud. A tightly woven vibrant tapestry of sonic textures is the end result.

A fantastic fusion

“Keepsake” delivers an electrifying and euphoric listening experience where Arula’s otherworldly vocals are the central focal point. Similarly, the track brilliantly fuses mystical rhythms and Eastern inspired beats. The seductively crafted song lures your bare feet to dance and rejoice in the earth. Also, to remember Mother Nature is our “Keepsake.” “Keepsake” is out now on independent electronic music emblem Amrita Recordings.

In their words

“We felt inspired to create a track that is both fun and evocative, as well as haunting and prayerful. ‘Keepsake’ is a call to action to be better stewards of the earth as well as a celebration to remember our capacity to create change. It’s an anthem to the earth that we feel celebrates the dualities of both the masculine and feminine archetypes.”
