Satori Surprises Us with Hypnotic Single “Lalai”Ahead of Album Release



Dutch electronic live performer Satori surprises us with his new track “Lalai” ahead of his anticipated studio album. For this special release he has joined forces with Iranian opera singer, Ariana Vafadari. “Lalai” follows on from Satori’s November single “Yellow Blue Bus” and further paves the way for the artist’s full-length album. Recorded at Ibiza’s legendary Sonic Visa Studios the production, due for release April 22, 2022, is a dazzling reflection of Satori’s personal journey, fusing his passion for both electronic and live music.

The song is sung by Iranian opera singer Ariana Vafadari and recorded in a 400-year-old water well. Initially, she wrote the lyrics for her son, for when she takes him to bed, but eventually, we gave it a broader meaning. It became more of a ‘goodbye’ song, that represents the ‘letting go’ of a person or the ‘letting go’ of the day into night. The two extremes of the track were my inspiration. On one side you have Ariana, the lullaby, which is very delicate and romantic. On the other hand, you have the heavy electronic sounds of beats and synths. It was a big challenge to bring these worlds together but I am very happy with the result.”Satori

“Lalai” transports the listener to a golden, dancefloor sunrise, where an enchanting female vocal melts into swaying, tribal drumbeats and enticing synths. The alluring tones of Vafadari intertwine harmoniously with Satori’s escapist electronica, delivering a sublime, world-music melody that continues to forge his diverse, artistic talent. The transcendent, sophomore release is a powerful precursor to Satori’s eagerly anticipated studio album dropping this Spring. Out now on Crosstown Rebels.
