Satori was born to a Serbian father and South African mother and creates meditative music using a range of instruments such as the piano, kora, kalimba, and guitar. He has recently started a collaboration with South African charity Bridges for Music (Richie Hawtin, Skrillex, Luciano and Black Coffee all previously involved) and performed at Boiler Room’s 2016 ADE show.
His new release with Matthew Dear & Ewan Pearson on remix duty is out now and we've asked the producer to take us on a meditative journey.
Satori: "When I was asked to make a playlist for 22 tracks on meditation I didn't want to come up with your standard - cheering birds, the sound of wind and a panflute - meditation music. All 22 tracks are songs that have a powerful grounding effect on me. After I come home from touring or a big studio session I play this music to clear my mind and reconnect with myself.
This is powerful grounding music played by true masters like Tinariwen, Brian Eno, Ravi Shankar, Driss El Maloumi, Rabi Abou Khalil, Ayub Ogada, Toumani Diabate, Djivan Gasparyan. All these masters inspire me to keep it real."
