Born to Brazilian parents and raised in France, Yndi Ferreira (a.k.a. Dream Koala) took to music early, teaching himself to play guitar and piano and playing in bands by his early teens. Now, with producing remixes of Angel Haze and The 1975 under his belt, Yndi is releasing own Odyssey EP.
“Ocean,” featuring French singer Soko, lives up to its title, creating a placid sonic landscape of dreamlike synthesizers on the surface, with subtle rhythms pulsating underneath. “I want to have my own genre by mixing all my influences together,” Yndi says. “To me, everything is connected – be it the genius of Flying Lotus or the ethereal beauty of My Bloody Valentine.” Listen to “Ocean” here.
Yndi will make his first Stateside appearance with a gig at CMJ in New York on October 16. He’ll also perform at the Believe Digital+Free Williamsburg Party on October 19 and the Nouveau York party on October 20. Next up though, is a music video for “Odyssey.” Watch a teaser clip below.
