The Ashram EP is named after one of Ibiza’s few remaining bohemian sunset spots, Sunset Ashram, where Levi Love spent his 40th birthday. Cover art from local illustrator Edward Brandon Meziani depicts the venue from an aerial perspective, with the Balearic sea etched in white lines on a black background. The title track on side A is where you hear a complete Eurocentric interpretation of Levi’s musical ideas; it is for the electronic measured, perfect for warm-up and home consumption. The unusually haunting synth follows a carefully constructed melody, which is in fact taken from a struggle song, ‘Asinamali’, that he sung with his father as a child. The bassline reveals the baritone layer of the song by using long notes to create a comfortable padding. The irony here is unmistakable, turning a struggle song against apartheid and Western ills by using distinctly Western elements and tools. A musical oxymoron perhaps. Side B stems from an afterparty which took place 7 years ago, during which he contacted a very talented vocalist Daddy Molete to narrate that night, in retrospect. It has taken all these years to find an instrumental that did justice to the vocal; in the process converting the whole piece into a New York dub-infused Afro House track, if there ever was such a thing. Mas O Menos was established in 2015, with the intention to encourage cross-pollination of Manchester and South African culture and music. The Ashram EP epitomises this ethos, making it the winning candidate for the label’s second vinyl release.
