Komashov Releases Tantalising ‘Wama’ EP via Hurry Up Slowly

    One of the most exciting newcomer acts to emerge from Israel’s flourishing house scene over the past couple of years, Komashov has been breezing through career milestones at impressive speed since launching his discography in 2022. Gracing some of the most influential labels on the circuit including Abracadabra and Monaberry, the home-grown Tel Aviv talent now marks his debut release for Miami-based label and events brand Hurry Up Slowly with his majestic, three-track ‘Wama’ EP.

    Rife with organic and world music sensibilities, Komashov’s fresh extended player straddles the club and at-home listening spaces with ease. Opening with its title track ‘Wama’, Komashov elicits pure danceability with a masterfully blended arrangement of softly driven percussion and emphatic synth hits. Woven between his alluring melodic riffs and ethnic-leaning vocal line are an impeccable array of synth intricacies, which pay homage to the organic sentiments we’ve come to know and love from his output. 

    ‘Podiya’ plays next; an intoxicating slice of Afro-house that puts his productions talents front and centre. Offsetting his world music elements against classic piano chord progressions, Komashov finds the sweet spot between a multitude of genres, landing on a sound that is veritably his own. 

    Last but by no means least, the EP’s third and final offering takes the form of ‘Maka’. Presenting us with another heady listening experience, Komashov breeds rhythmic gold for his closing cut as he journeys through anthemic apex moments and stripped-back breaks with refined subtlety.

    A staple on the likes of Monaberry and Abracadabra, Komashov’s ‘Wama’ EP follows his globally-acclaimed single ‘Mayoko’ in November of 2023 and marks the first in a series of releases set for the coming months. An established name on the club and festival circuit, Komashov has shared the stage with some of dance music’s biggest names, including Marco Carola, Guy Gerber, Blond:ish, Damian Lazarus and Jan Blomqvist to name a few. With a truly original sound profile that transcends the notion of genres, he is quickly becoming one of the most exciting artists to follow on the melodic house circuit across Europe, the Middle East and beyond.
