audioJazz - Momentum
Just the two tracks to choose from (and props to them for not, therefore, trying to label it as an 'EP'... a personal bugbear I noticed Mixmag having a grumble about this month as well). Momentum itself is a slow-burning, jazz-tinged groover with tribal/bruk influences in the percussion and a neat line in gently undulating organ/pad sounds, understated trumpets and softly tinkling ivories. It's more one for warm-up play than anything but it's very cool all the same. On the B, meanwhile, Take A Chance is a more uptempo affair with solid, steady kicks, disconcerting vocal overlays and some more nifty keyboard work… plus a little 303 squelch for good measure.
Interesting, slighly esoteric stuff for the more discerning heads.
Out: This week
About: As stated, this comes on the artists' own audioJazz Music imprint, which is just five releases old. Here's their website, or you can find 'em on Soundcloud and Facebook.
