Around the time I discovered the genre of Downtempo years ago, Quantic was among the few artists from that world who I had on my rotation so discovering this also felt quite nostalgic.

Initially it was the strings that swept me off my feet as they pull the listener in with their elegance and emotive presence. When Nidia’s velvet-smooth vocals slip into the mix the track really comes to life and accentuates the Latin American flavor we’re introduced to.

Nidia sings of soul’s lost at sea found by fishermen on Macumba de Marea, while Quantic’s orchestral layered instrumentation crescendos and flows, weaving between Nidia’s storytelling.
