Ekali Posts Nature Videos to Accompany Crystal Eyes EP

Ekali just released his debut EP Crystal Eyes. Now there is a playlist on YouTube of relaxing nature videos to go with each song.

Ekali, aka Nathan Shaw from Vancouver, British Columbia, dropped his debut Crystal Eyes EP on OWSLA Records last week. The project includes six tracks with collaborations featuring K.Flay, Yuna and more. Listen/watch it on the producer’s YouTube channel in a series of peaceful videos.

Crystal Eyes by Ekali Track Listing:

1. “Stay Hollow” by Ekali & mossy.
2. “Forgot How To Dream” ft. K.Flay
3. “Helios” by Ekali & SLUMBERJACK
4. “Forever” by Ekali & Medasin ft. Elohim
5. “Leaving” Ft. Yuna
6. “Crystal Eyes”

According to Nest HQ, “Beyond previously released singles “Helios” with SLUMBERJACK and “Forever” with Medasin and Elohim, Ekali offers soothing, feel-good electronic on this release. The opener, “Stay Hollow” with mossy, is marked by strong percussion on a downtempo beat carrying delicate vocals that are soon turned into melodic vocal chops. Ekali playfully handles vocals throughout the EP, transforming voices into synths and successfully providing a stage to let his collaborators shine. K.Flay soars high on “Forgot How To Dream,” fleshing out her raspy, soulful singing style for Ekali’s trap-inspired production. Ekali closes Crystal Eyes with the title track, offering a classic future bass production to soak up all the vibes of this six-track story…”

Ekali just wrapped up Goldrush 2018, shown on his official Instagram above. The producer will be on a tour of North America this fall starting in Hollywood on October 12 and ending in Dallas, Texas at Lights All Night on December 29, 2018. Check out the tour schedule here.
