Could just be me, but I get huge Orbus Terrarum (The Orb) vibes from the first two tracks of this EP, which brings back fond memories. Great music from great musicians!
Favorite track: Calling The Loas.
Last year, Hieroglyphic Being (producer of astral electronic explorations touching house, techno, industrial, avant-jazz and noise); percussionist and producer Sarathy Korwar (who fused traditional folk music of the Sidi community in India with jazz and electronics on his debut album “Day To Day” released by Ninja Tune in collaboration with The Steve Reid Foundation); and Shabaka Hutchings (the highly respected British saxophonist and co-founder of Sons Of Kemet, Mercury-nominated The Comet Is Coming and Shabaka & The Ancestors) - recorded a 100% live improvised session at the iconic Lightship95 studio moored at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London. They recorded over 2.5 hours of music across 2 sessions, with 90 minutes streamed live via NTS.
On 4th August 2017, Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint will release a 12” EP comprising 4 edits from these sessions titled "A.R.E. Project” (abbreviated from "Association For Research & Enlightenment Project”).
supported by 64 fans who also own “A.R.E. Project”
The entire group's groove dynamic is so fucking amazing. Shout out to Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon Jones, Daniel Casimir and that drummer Femi Koloeso. Keep making good music!!!
btw the tuba's solo was above and beyond my imagination Raven Branwen
