Daily Discovery: Departure – Hipocampo (Live/Scripted Looping Performance)

London-based Colombian musician and producer Departure releases his new single “Hipocampo,” a blend of electronic beats, Colombian influences, and nostalgia. The title “Hipocampo” refers to multiple concepts: a seahorse, a brain region linked to memory, and a building in Cartagena, Colombia, significant in Departure’s early life.

Departure’s works continue this integration of Colombian traditional elements with electronic music, featuring prominent flute and vibrant percussion, supported by a Reese bass. These pieces combine traditional wind instruments with contemporary synthesisers and Moog-style bass, representing a fusion of heritage and forward-looking sounds.
