Melinda & Maciek : Jazz Frit [LBN043]

Melinda & Maciek is a project started in February 2018 thanks to an accidental Instagram connection between 2 musicians. Melinda Ligeti is a composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist/arranger/producer from Serbia, living in Italy, while Maciek Cieslak is a drummer from Poland, living in France. It all started with Melinda’s old wish to write music based on a bare drum track. Maciek happened to have some ready, recorded drumparts that he sent to her, and she used them to build music upon it, using piano, synth and bass. It was an experimental approach to composition Melinda always wanted to try, and it finally happened. The result is 4 songs, mixing jazz, prog, fusion, chillout, contemporary… imagined as a mini album, giving the taste of what this project might become if developed further. 3 of them are instrumental, and one is also involving Maciek’s vocals that got caught on microphones while recording the drumpart, a selfironic song that makes fun of the hardship of singing and playing at the same time, in his native Polish language. Jazz Frit is a symbolic title for this album, for the fact that musicians involved are living in (Fr)ance and (It)aly, but also, and so much more, for the meaning of frit word, which by Oxford dictionary definition is the mixture of silica and fluxes which is fused at high temperature to make glass, plus – according to urban dictionary means intoxicating/exciting, as well as ligthly fried.”

Фиорд : Невзялазь [SCL195]

“Три года музыкального молчания, скомпилированы в пять треков, представляющих из себя сплав барокко-попа, джаза и эксцентричности Фиорда. И по сравнению со старыми работами, данный альбом равномерен по динамике и зрел по эмоциональности. Последние признаки юношеской дерганности остались в «Третьем тайме». И нам остается удивляться, сто раз удивляться — Куда сбежал шум?”

Downbeat : Introspección [DPH029]

Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders.

Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion. INTROSPECTIÓN is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.

The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. Nevertheless, this is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.

Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel ▲ (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE).”

Eter Dub : In Da Name of Jah [DPH026]

Eter Dub offers a new fresh breeze in dub music. His sound cannot be framed into one genre. It is definitely dub, but with references not only to his classical musical studies but also into jazz, which is his second nature. Each composition offers originality and an alternative approach to dub music. From the ‘linguistical’ approach on Hand Of Jah, to the slow and wild ‘Ras-Sax’, from the funk-jazzy ‘Jah Trax 5’ to the adventurous ‘Jah Jah Love’, all seven tracks of the EP build a new concept of dub music.”

Mastermind XS : Keep on moving [DPH025]

Mastermind XS is a dub-project from Saarbrucken/Germany, created by Daniel Stephan (guitar, bass, keyboard, programming, sitar) and Heiko Petry (vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard). Their music is based on a solid dub foundation: heavy basslines with conscious lyrics and deeply rooted dub & reggae with an interesting twist, integrating many influences such as electro, ethnic music, drum/n/bass and even indie or punk. Their sound unites different styles, which hardly fits into one single genre and are always exploring new musical spaces, combining their Ableton skills and live instruments, forming a unique ear-candy-mixture of grooves.”
