“Wasis” comes from Deep Forest’s upcoming album, Deep Africa. The nearly seven minute long song can really be split into two parts: the slower, more somber first half, and the faster, more upbeat second half. The first half has two voices: one that sounded quieter and sadder, which I didn’t like all that much. The other voice was stronger and more mystical, and helped me like this part of the song more. The second half however, features a wide variety of instruments that helps give the song a special kind of atmosphere. While I definitely prefer this more active second half, I can also hear how the slower first half is used to build up to it.
The song is available to download for free from Rolling Stone’s website.
Deep Africa will be released July 9, 2013 and will be available from Amazon MP3.
