Premiere: Orquesta – Qingming

13.05.13, Words by: Lauren Martin

Just before he departs for this year’s round of the consistently immaculate Red Bull Music Academy in New York City, Dublin-based producer and Meles Meles label-head Orquesta is giving away his brand new track Qingming exclusively via Dummy. Orquestra is set to release an EP after his time in NYC and if Qingming is indicative of his style, then he is sure to deliver a fine piece of work. Pulling together his interests in a myriad of styles of Latin American music with his own multi-instrumentalist talents, Qingming is a wonderfully tactile and uplifting house track that bodes well for his development under the tutelage and experiences of the Academy.

To get a better feel of his work you can also download, for free, all four of his EPs here, and watch a spirited live performance of his ‘Cycle One: An Exoplanetary Forest’ EP here.

Orquesta will also be performing alongside Spinn and Rashad on May 16th at The Twisted Pepper in Dublin, and on May 27th with Benji B, FaltyDL and Dorian Concept at Deviation, New York City.
