An artist, producer, and songwriter with a deft penchant for creating cosmically-tinged music, Daxuva is one of Portugal’s most impressive creative prospects. With a passion for collaboration and vision that unfurls on an international scale, it’s no surprise to find that Daxuva’s debut project is with the ‘Mother of Trip-Hop’, Smoke City singer, Nina Miranda.
A glistening single that has already been receiving rave reviews globally, ‘Hummingbird’ is the first taste of a collaborative record that’s due to be released before the year’s end.
The sound of Trip-Hop evolved, ‘Hummingbird’ crawls into existence as a downtempo wonder, building itself from a foundation of subtle beats, atmospheric electronics, and Nina’s smoky, floating vocals. A collaboration that feels completely organic in its inception, ‘Hummingbird’ wastes not time in making it’s mark, piercing the silence with a gentle tropical edge and breath-taking, deceptively simple sound.
It’s a song that seems to arrive to completely revitalise the genre, and then leaves without a trace at the end of it’s two minute and forty second runtime, leaving an empty space and a deafening silence in it’s wake. It’s an effect that’s hard to understand without experiencing it, and as far as we’re concerned, ‘Hummingbird’ is a track that everyone needs to experience.
Stream the single now on Spotify, or hear the track complete with some stunning visuals on Youtube, and then go ahead a grab your own digital copy from iTunes.
