Planetself represents the ethereal collaboration of vocalist Charli Umami and mainstay producer and DJ Inkswel. Growing up immersed in the incredible natural surroundings of the Adelaide Hills Charli’s playground was nature trails with flowing creeks and natural springs, and she developed a deep understanding and connection to Mother Earth and the intricate ecosystems that surrounded her. Leylines is all about that connection and above all respect for Mother Earth in all of her brilliance. It is an understanding of the energetic currents (Leylines) that are forever pulsing through our planet and the acknowledgement of their existence and power. Charli’s ethereal story telling on this dramatic yet poignant piece, is backed by Inkswel’s take on modern Trap and Rnb leanings, whilst maintaining his lo-fi signature sound, rooted in underground Hip Hop. Planetself has gone from strength to strength with their previous outing in 2020 being an EP with Bugz In The Attic on their CO-OPR8 label and a collaborative EP in late 2019 with house legend Osunlade. Carrying on from these soulful releases, Charli Umami’s cool and captivating voice, combined with a deep lyrical message, channels a new sound that will transport you to other realms beyond the current landscape, continuing the progressive and dynamic approach of this Adelaide based future Soul group.
