The Mistry Mix with RENU

Asian percussionist RENU features this week on The Mistry Mix, talks to me about her latest album Midnight Radio, the audio-visual launch night at London’s Richmix with her band The Revellers, her spanish influences and more.

The album has a strong spanish and latin influence throughout, each track adding to a much bigger concept. The lyrics are witty, sarcastic and dark highlighting the facade of human nature in Pretty People to a more positive reminiscence with Mustang. Through The Fire encompasses a dark & melancholy ambience, a tremolo guitar in a empty space enhanced subtly with strings. Layered over distant cymbals/ percussion and eerie vocals of a suffering and determined seeker.

Mi Morena Amor has a 6/8 rhythm oozing hispanic influences (Latin, Spanish, Portuguese) featuring the voice of God, a narrative omnipresent perspective within the track, uptempo vocals with a jaunty feel over a scattered rhythm encompassing several percussive instruments. The use of strings throughout the album, which Renu states she loves recording forms a prominent part of the sound, giving an attitude to the various musical passages, the overall sonic concept.
