The Melancolia EP by Jacob Gurevitsch is out now in all digital stores.
Danish guitarist Jacob Gurevitsch unleashed his impressive Spanish guitar skills andlaced together ‘Melancolía’ in Majorca.
And it is Majorca where the Grammy-nominated Buika, the flamenco singer with attitude who takes the vocal reins in ‘Melancolía’, originally comes from.
The song drips with emotion, an exploration of love and beauty and recourse for painful times.
Danes are known for their tendency towards melancholy and therefore Copenhagen newcomers DJ DIVO & OliO has made a dub inspired, almost Gotan Project like remix of ‘Melancolía’. Together
with the added drums and dubby effects DJ DIVO & OliO lets the grey Nordic despondency make way for a kind of poetic wallowing that compliments the Spanish guitar and Buika’s singing.
The song also represents a massive turning point in Jacob’s life after a great friend passed, a movement in which appreciation of people and things became the key to life.
