The only 17 year old Gustav Berntsen is the artist behind the moniker Jagan Mai and is the latest addition to our roster. Earlier this year he released his debut EP ’’Clouds’’ on Bad Panda Records. It was well received by, Andrew Jervis (Ubiquity) among others, who featured it on his weekly Bandcamp radio show two weeks in a row.
Playful melodies, a lingering bass, organic percussion drowned in reverb and dreamy field recordings of singing birds and creaking forest floors are among the elements that all together creates the marvelously lo-fi beats that Jagan Mai is behind. Now he is ready with his second release, the roughly 20 minute EP entitled ’’Mana Pool’’, that greatly explores the magical and dreamy elements of music.
