Best known for his widely acclaimed hit single ‘Wicked Games’ with Anna Naklab, Prodigious German producer Nicolas Demuth has unveiled a sparkling new offering upon the auditory universe with his new single ‘Unfold’. His upcoming twelve track album featuring the track, Majouré, is slated for release in January.



Video Interview:

If the album preview is anything to go by, Majouré (French for force majeure or superior force), is expected to live up to its namesake with aplomb. Every track on the album possesses a distinct foundation of electronica with a cross pollination of diverse musical influences and genres. Collaborating virtually with guest musicians such as the Los Angeles-based hip hop artist Nieve, electric soul diva Casey K. and the indian-based Monsoonsiren, the album draws inspiration from a rich wellspring of musical styles. Largely unclassifiable in terms of genre, Parra For Cuva’s electronic world music is the stuff fantasies are made of.


The single ‘Unfold’, out now on Lenient Tale Recordings, is a veritable portal to another world. The track is accompanied by a video that portrays the ocean-side of a strange Otherworld replete with exotic flora, floating dew drops, fuzzy ball-like creatures and even a tentacled sea monster. The evocative track produces an intensely emotional sound experience which nevertheless floats lightly upon the senses. Owing to Parra for Cuva’s training in classical and jazz piano, the use of the instrument is resilient throughout the track creating a soothing backdrop to a rich layering of different sounds. The atmospheric track has a wonderfully liquid quality to it, sprinkled with tinkling feminine laughter and a captivating vocal hook. It has the innocence of the lucid dreams of an infant child and is an absolute joyride from the start ‘til the end.
