Posted by on August 18, 2022

Aguava is the vision of producer Allen Chen. The upcoming China-born, US-bred musician draws on a wide range of influences ranging from afrobeats and bossa nova to disco and 90s house, he seeks to blend these genres into forward thinking retro grooves and does exactly that. His new self-titled 5-track-EP is a cohesive mixture of feel-good vibes that is a great introduction to his music! Check out a quote from Aguava on his unique approach to production below and stream his gorgeous new EP above right now!

I recorded a bunch of common kitchen items; pots, pans, cutting boards, pepper shakers, wine openers. It wasn’t until later that I added the strings, which provided the inspiration for the name of the track. The sound and shape of these strings reminded me of some kind of wind; one that weaved and meandered across vast distances. ‘Sirocco’ is the name of a Mediterranean wind that blows from North Africa to southern Europe, but to me it felt like the perfect embodiment of these strings and this song; travelling far distances and bypassing all sorts of incredible sights and sounds on that journey.”
