A duo out of Tblisi, Okinawa Lifestyle create a seductive brand of electro-pop with a decidedly cosmopolitan groove.
Okinawa Lifestyle is David Datunashvili and Gigi Jikia, a pair of Georgian musicians who began working together in 2009.
Following up on the Free MP3 of the Day we dropped from OL back in August (available here), we offer this groovy little instrumental piece called “Levan.”
Through a layer of gritty, granular electropop noise, “Levan” falls into a rump-shaking, head-bobbing groove straight out of 1976, with a great little bip-bap-bop keyboard melody that’s Quincy Jones Body Heat songbook (and a nice guitar groove at the end, too).
Dice up a little Pet Shop Boys-style Europop and throw it into the stew and you’ve got something delicious from Okinawa Lifestyle.
