About this EP
Created by French music-producer Woochia based in London, this 6-tracks album - or EP - uses the soothing tones of acoustic instruments (like guitars or didgeridoo) with tones usually used for meditation (singing bowls, different types of throat singing) mixed with powerful drums and electronic bass lines to deliver a soft and melodic techno music, perfect for travelling. All the tracks of this album have been composed in trains, buses and coaches while travelling between and around London and Paris. These songs capture the feeling of being on the road, following the drift of the mind in its own imagination while the landscapes go by, behind the window.
"The recording instantly feels like a quintessential,
well-crafted eclectic concoction"
"I highly recommend a complete listen to the Travels EP from start to finish to refresh a tired or troubled mind."
"you might well be drawn to wonder if you had found the perfect soundtrack for your journey through the neon jungle"
"Woochia definitely leaves a great impression on you"
"there is a truly perfect equilibrium in the song."
"one that offers a sublimely impressive taster"
