Good afternoon - it's 15:42

Sometimes sound is ghost work

“They write on the sand
As they know
Words are as fragile
As strong as the wind
Carrying a thousand worlds”

Odete the Slayer could be the name of a goddess from ancient norse mythology, instead it’s the quite intimidating Instagram moniker of the Portuguese poetess and multi-disciplinary artist whose vision is encapsulated in this sound wave. Her words, like powerful spells, travel from a primeval place in the depths of our souls and reach ethereal, otherworldly, magical realms capable of enchanting our minds. In her own words:

“The mix is a rework on samples and unreleased melodies from my first album, as I felt the need to go back to where I started to see how I feel those tracks 3 years later. the album was created as a kind of love spell and so going back to it was a way to untie the magical knots it intended to create.”


the mix is mostly original music, just the end has 4 tracks:

A quema Ropa
Bungalovv, Incantation
T5UMUT5UMU , Murderers
IVVO , skype softnes – Emily glass
