Ashkan Kooshanejad is a futurist but comes from one of the most ancient countries in the world. It’s not surprising: as old as it is, the culture of Iran has always had a strong sense for the modern and this young man, now based in London, is sure making something new. A tireless experimenter, Ash Koosha treats sound with the curiosity of a scientist. Fiercely electronic but shaped by years of Persian and Western classical music theory, his work comes from thought but ends up being intensely physical, always split between chaos and structure. These premises hold perfectly for his sophomore album, “I AKA I”.
Only a few days left before the release of the LP “I AKA I” by Ash Koosha on Ninja Tune. After “Mudafossil” and the more recent “Biutiful“, the Iranian producer just shared a third track off the LP: “Ooh Uhh”. As usual, Koosha processes and reprocesses sounds that he then pastes on a classical music background. “Ooh Uhh” is aquatic in a way but also hypnotic like the dance of some delicate small streams that would escape a mountaintop. A perfect track to welcome the Spring.
