melody-laden electronic tracks

Territory: NL
Label: Parra For Cuva

Parra for Cuva’s sonic identity can be encapsulated in a single word: Wanderlust. Renowned for a distinct sense of worldliness, his music forms a magical realm where the resonance of Caribbean steel drum may intertwine with ancient Zimbabwean instruments, set against melodic electronic soundscapes that transport the listener to distant lands. This openness has been a defining feature since the beginning of the German electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist’s career. Upon relocating to Berlin, he continued his exploration, incorporating elements ranging from bells to flutes and kalimbas. Despite the refinement of his skills and the maturation of his sound, his music retains a starry-eyed quality that embodies the spirit of adventure.
With chart-topping singles and two acclaimed albums, Majouré (2014) and Darwîś (2016), Parra for Cuva’s breakthrough came with the release of Paspatou (2018). Unafraid to blend dance floor experimentations with acoustic and ethnic soundscapes, his fourth studio album, Juno (2021), involved collaborations with musicians from around the world. Drawing comparisons to contemporaries like Christian Löffler and Max Cooper, known for infusing electronic productions with warm, often melancholic analog sounds, Parra for Cuva has graced prestigious festivals and sold-out stages globally, including Burning Man and Sziget. Anticipated in 2024, his upcoming album, Mimose, promises a captivating sonic journey with exciting collaborations.
