- The Boston artist will issue two records through the German label in January.
Denovali Records will release Ricardo Donoso's Sarava Exu, as well as a vinyl edition of his 2010 effort, Deterrence, on January 30th.
The Brazilian-born Donoso came to underground recognition via his albums and EPs for Digitalis, especially Assimilating The Shadow, a record which inhabits a space between ambient, modern synth music and non-traditional dance floor fare. His latest full-length, Saravu Exu, is inspired by Brazilian mysticism and takes on the theme of the "descent." The label says: "Sarava Exu is a symphonic poem of a Quimbanda ritual and the musical accompaniment of Descent into one's own personal hell."
To provide some context for the new work, the imprint will also reissue Deterrence, a 2010 LP previously available in a cassette edition of 80. Donoso, who has done time as a drummer for death metal act Ehnahre and studied composition at Berklee College of Music, crafted the dark ambient record with an emphasis on enveloping sound design.
