Henri-Pierre Noël – One More Step(Preview)

Henri-Pierre Noël - One More StepOut 21st July 2014

On moving to Canada from his original home of Haiti, pianist and singer/songwriter Henri-Pierre Noel brought with him much of the tropical island’s influences. The “Kompa Funk” sounds of his homeland, along side contemporary North American jazz and disco, ran throughout Henri’s 1979 album Piano, re-released by Wah Wah 45s in 2012, and now it’s time for a second helping with the re-issue of 1980’s dance floor friendly One More Step, both albums having been originally released on very limited private presses and since become holy grails of the black music scene.

Henri-Pierre Noel is an incredibly versatile musican who uses the piano in a very percussive and syncopated way, almost like a drum. This particular technique naturally brings disco and afro-funk elements into hisunique brand of dance floor fusion.

The man himself is still playing in his adopted home of Montreal today, and having been introduced to Wah Wah 45s label boss Dom Serviniby Canadian DJsKobal, Moonstarr and Andy Williams, who were allkeen fans of his early works, it became clear that Noel’s finest moments needed to be re-released and re-discovered by a new generation.

Re-mastered from the original multi-track tapes by Kevin Moonstarr in Canada, and featuring seriously foot friendly cuts like “Afro-Funk” Groove, Funky Spider Dance and Latin Feeling,as well as firing female vocals and a plethora of percussion,Henri-Pierre Noel’s sophomore LP is finally available to all on heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital formats, including full sleeve notesfrom Reveal Records boss, Peter Riden.

Je vous remercie une fois de plus Monsieur Noel!

Elina Duni new album “Muza e zezë”

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2014 by E.N.

Elina Duni Muza e Zeze“Muza e zezë” is Elina Duni’s eighth album, but the first one where she presents herself as a singer-songwriter. Songs of impossibility, of irony or childhood that reflect life and all it’s colors.
These are contemporary tunes mixed with an interesting accoustic sound and are part of nowadays spirit .
This project is a bridge between the two Albanian capitals, Tirana and Prishtina as the musicians that perfom are from these two cities. Armend Xhaferi on bass and guitar, Enes Bajramliqi on the drums from Prishtina and Gent Rushi and Ermal Rodi from Tirana.
We believe that the album represents a novelty in the music scene and opens new ways and sounds for the Albanian music and art culture.

Bio Elina Duni

Born in Tirana, Albania, in 1981, in an artist family, Elina Duni makes her first steps on stage as a singer at the age of five and sings for the National Radio and Television.
In 1991 after the fall of the communist regime, she arrives in Switzerland and settles in Geneva together with her mother where she starts the classical piano and discovers jazz.

Between 2001 and 2009 she releases four albums in collaboration with different artists:
« Live in Tirana » with Gent Rushi (2001) « Harpatic » Extrangers in the noise (2003)
« Lakuriq » (2004) and « I kalter » (2009) with the band Retrovizorja.
and has film and theater projects like Yllka (2001), Three farces from Tchekhov (2001)
La preuve du contraire (2003).

Between 2004-2008, she studies singing and composition at the Hochschule der Künste Bern, in the jazz department.

During this time she develops the Elina Duni Quartet – which represents a return to her musical sources, a combination of Balkan folk songs and jazz and releases three Albums «Baresha» (2008) “Lume Lume” (2010) and «Matanë Malit» (2012). With her quartet she tours since 2008 succesfully in Europe and the US.

In 2014 she presents her first solo album: « Muza e zezë » as a singer-songwriter.

El Pres Beats – Fly Dutchman (Robsoul Jazz)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2014 by E.N.

EL PRES BEATSEl Pres Beats drops his debut album Fly Dutchman for Robsoul Jazz on 21st March and continues a story which has seen him bubbling under for the last few years. The producer, from Leeuwarden Holland but currently based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, has previously scored with Glenwood Hostel EP, which became popular in underground Hip Hop circles and caught the attention of Robsoul Jazz boss Phil Weeks. In keeping with previous Robsoul Jazz releases, both from Parisian Around7, Fly Dutchman focuses on the instrumental side of Hip Hop, with head nodding beats and Jazz, Soul and Funk samples chopped and stitched together in perfection.

When speaking to Instrumentology.com in 2013 El Pres Beats commented, “Sampling is the backbone of my style. 99% of the samples I use come from vinyl though – no sample packs or anything. Every sound you hear on my beats was found by me listening to the actual vinyl. I hold the art of diggin’ in the crates for samples up high.” –

Submotion Orchestra -Damn Hot (Stream)

SUBMOTION ORCHESTRASUBMOTION ORCHESTRA PREMIERE
SECOND SINGLE OFF NEW EP
1968

With two incredibly successful albums under their belt Submotion Orchestra bring their latest five track EP to UK independent Circus Records. The seven-piece group that formed in 2009 have forged a large loyal fan base with their blend of Electronica, Jazz, Dub and Soul, music that has been described as ‘stunning’ by The Guardian and ‘seductive’ by The Times.
Following a chance meeting in London with Circus co-founder Flux Pavilion who declared his love for the band, SubMo promptly signed to the label reaffirming the notion that Circus have always sought to release only the highest quality music, regardless of genre. Flux Pavilion says“to release Submo on Circus is amazing, I’ve always been a big fan of their music.”
The new EP 1968 is a masterclass in ethereal, soulful vocals that sit astride shuffling drums as on ‘Broken World’ or ‘Breathe It In’. Lead singer Ruby’s voice echoes early pop Janet Jackson on ‘Damn Hot’ whilst title track ‘1968’ is smooth and subtle: echoing piano keys gliding beneath intricate layers of sound. Stream the first single, ‘1968 HERE.

CD_packaging_FINAL_Fania_1febV2.indd

Fania Records announced today the release of Elements Of Life ‘Eclipse,’ a 2-disc album from Louie Vega’s critically acclaimed live orchestral project.  The album is set for a worldwide release date of March 19, 2013, and is the first new artist album Fania is releasing in years.  The first disc showcases 17 brand new tracks from Elements Of Life that tastefully traverse the sounds ofAfrobeat, Jazz, Latin, R&B, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Brazilian and World Music all woven with the golden touch of Grammy Award winning Producer/Artist/DJ Louie Vega.  The second disc includes “EOL Soulfrito” an homage to Fania Records through interpretations and remixes of classic Fania songs performed by the Elements Of Life in a 33-minute sound collage as well as six more bonus tracks.  Louie Vega connected with the legendary Fania Records after doing the smash club remix of his uncle Hector Lavoe’s “Mi Gente” track back in 2008.  Louie elaborates, “At that time I started working on my new Elements Of Life album. Fania was already aware of my previous E.O.L. albums and when they got wind, they wanted to hear it. Once they heard it, they were very interested in signing it. I was in awe of the idea. Things really would go full cycle being on Fania Records.”
