Belle – Lapwing (WOT013)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2013 by E.N.

WOT013Belle’s rich vocals have already pricked ears with ‘Crazy Little Thing’ (produced by Requiem) and Om Unit’s remix of ‘Delicious Delicacies’ receiving multiple plays on Rinse and NTS. Lapwing,an EP of smoky electric soul continues in the same vein, balancing soulful tendencies with forward-looking production.

Following her curation of the Untold Songs project released by JusLike Music in aid of Amnesty International (featuring Ursula Rucker, Heidi Vogel, Vula, Ahu, Ruby Wood, Baby Sol and Stac)it’s a huge pleasure to finally release Belle’s debut EP.
The production, from WotNot’s own K15, is littered with musical influences – from the obvious 90s neo-soul and hip-hop references to bass, dub and even jungle – and the flawless balance between Belle and her collaborator is the key to this release. This is illustrated by the neck-snapping beat of Infinity, countered by a graceful, undulating lead vocal over gloriously dubbed-out backing vocals.

The skippy, two-step flavoured neo-soul of It’s All Made Up, with its big gospel-tinged crescendos,sounds like a young Destiny’s Child hitting the studio with a CMYK-era James Blake.
Title track Lapwing contrasts rhythmic, meditative marimbas and Rhodes with a smoky, lyrical vocal over more dub-style backing vocals; here the beats sit back and lets the building layers of harnonies steer.
The full-on 90s neo-soul throwback of We Once Were, complete with hints of jungle that finally rise to the top for an exhilarating final minute, highlights the strength of Belle’s vocals and songwriting; while the influences are clear, the result is unique.
K15’s signature production style should excite any avid music fan about his upcoming WotNot release, with its perfectly measured bass lines, head-nod rhythms and subtle jazz-soul influence.
The sense of space throughout the release leaves you aching for more of Belle’s soul-searching vocals as she balances her dynamic range with subtle jazz inflections – hopefully something we won’t have to wait too long to hear more of.

Listen to ‘1968’ the title track from Submotion Orchestra’s forthcoming EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2013 by E.N.

CR027

Critically acclaimed for their vast sound infusing Jazz, Dub and Soul, Submotion Orchestra return with a new EP titled ‘1968’, which is due for release on the 4th November via Circus Records.

 Title track, ‘1968’ is the perfect introduction to the forthcoming EP as lead singer Ruby’s vocals soar over a wall of subtle, yet monumental instrumentation.

 
A surprising yet assured signing by Circus Records, a label who are more associated with bruising bass than the elegant tones of Submotion Orchestra, label co-founder Flux Pavilion declared his love for the band, which soon led to them signing to Circus, reinstating the label’s ethos of releasing 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.

Amongst a current trend in EDM, Submotion Orchestra offers a soothing influence that has been praised by the likes of The Guardian and The Times. Leeds’s finest will be embarking on a European tour next month, including a date at London’s prestigious Koko on the 15th November as well dates in Prague and Bratislava.

Around7 Soul On Wire LP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2013 by E.N.

around7Release Date: 25th Oct 2013
Around7 follows up his 7 track mini-album debut ‘Back To Basics’ from March, with the full length ‘Soul On Wire LP’.  The album features 17 tracks of the laid-back jazz, hip hop and broken beats that found him so many fans last time around.  Once again, the album is released on Robsoul Jazz, an offshoot of the well-established Robsoul Recordings house label run by Phil Weeks, and treats the art of sampling as it’s mantra.  Hip Hop influences such as J Dilla and DJ Premier are in heavy evidence, alongside the jazz of Miles Davis, Bill Evans and the legendary Blue Note Records. The ‘Soul On Wire LP’ will be released as a two part vinyl set, followed by the full digital album.

Around7 states that, “The aim of the tracks is to sound acoustic through the use of the jazz samples, but underpinned by rough old school hip hop beats.  The sample usually forms the starting point for each track.  Increasingly, I like to edit the track in a natural feeling – I think this the part that jazz has in my music, improvising with samples like a musician with his instrument.”

Hailing from ParisAround7’s music career began as a bassist and trumpet player in a jazz/funk band.  After learning to play keyboard and discovering the Akai MPC sampler and software such as Cubase, he merged all of his skills together to create his own tracks based around live instrumentation and samples.

DN3 – And LP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2013 by E.N.

DN3 - AND LPDN3‘s sound is both unique and instantly recognisable, and is as a result of an encounter between three great musical minds: Guido Nemola, a sound engineer and respected DJ, Cesare Dell’Anna, a man with a love of harmony and melodic textures and finally, Mauro Tre, a respected trumpet and keyboard player with a rich jazz background. Throughout their musical journey, DN3 cross numerous junctions through the most cutting-edge electronic experiments, resulting in a refined and contemporary sound that can loosely be defined as ”Electro Jazz”. Think Miles Davis jamming with Carl Craig and Francesco Tristano and you’ll get the idea.

If ever there was electronic music with soul, DN3‘s debut LP is surely it!

Bryan Ferry presents ‘The Jazz Age’ + Teaser

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on October 16, 2012 by E.N.

BRYAN FERRY PRESENTS THE JAZZ AGE
PERFORMED BY THE BRYAN FERRY ORCHESTRA

If there was ever a musical icon and a decade destined to come together it is Bryan Ferry and the Roaring Twenties. The artist as creative powerhouse with a dazzling career of endless surprise, delight and innovation, and the decade – a time of modernity, decadence and bright young things – all driven on by the thrill of it all.

So to celebrate and mark the 40th year anniversary of his incredible career both as a solo artist and as the creator of Roxy Music, Ferry has re-recorded some of his own compositions, performed by The Bryan Ferry Orchestra in the style of the 1920s.

Driven by his fascination for that time between the wars known as ‘The Jazz Age’, Ferry has recorded the songs as instrumentals. “I started my musical journey listening to a fair bit of jazz, mainly instrumental, and from diverse and contrasting periods” explains Ferry. “I loved the way the great soloists would pick up a tune and shake it up – go somewhere completely different – and then return gracefully back to the melody, as if nothing had happened. This seemed to me to reach a sublime peak with the music of Charlie Parker, and later Ornette Colman. More recently, I have been drawn back to the roots, to the weird and wonderful music of the 1920s – the decade that became known as The Jazz Age”

“After forty years of making records, both in and out of Roxy Music, I thought now might be an interesting moment to revisit some of these songs, and approach them as instrumentals in the style of that magical period. I would like to thank Colin Good and the other outstanding musicians featured on this record (most of who played on his earlier tribute to the 1930s, the album ‘As Time Goes By’) for bringing a new and different life to these songs – a life without words”.

‘The Jazz Age’ is an intoxicating collection of timeless songs awakening the spirits of Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven, Bix Beiderbecke’s Wolverines and the Original Dixieland Jazz Band. From the thundering cascade of ‘Virginia Plain’ to the timeless weave of ‘Slave To Love’, ‘Avalon’ and ‘Reason or Rhyme’ – no shade from Ferry’s palette of musical styles is omitted. ‘The Bogus Man’, which made its debut on 1973’s For Your Pleasure, revives the heady sounds of Duke Ellington’s Cotton Club band, while the arrangement of ‘Don’t Stop the Dance’ might have come from the pen of the great Don Redman. Ferry has created a soundtrack for those endless champagne-fuelled parties documented by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and for a whole new generation -‘The Jazz Age’ is pure Gatsbyesque bliss.

Tracklisting

1. Do The Strand. 8. This Is Tomorrow.
2. Love Is The Drug. 9. The Only Face.
3. Don’t Stop The Dance. 10. I Thought.
4. Just Like You. 11. Reason Or Rhyme
5. Avalon. 12. Virginia Plain.
