Big Sam’s Funky Nation – King Of The Party

Note :

Origine du Groupe : North America

Style : Funk , Soul , Rock

Sortie : 2010

Big Sam’s Funky Nation’s fourth album, King of the Party, extends Big Sam’s reign beyond the kingdom of Funk! This Hypersoul Records release embodies the full of life and celebratory attitude of
band’s hometown of New Orleans, and adds to it a funk-charged, rock n’ roll, jazz and hip-hop infused vibe.

The title track and anthem, « King of the Party, » declares that the party has arrived. The energetic drumming and gritty guitar work lay it down for Big Sam’s funky trombone to blow you away as he
flexes his musical muscle and takes on new musical territory. Big Sam wants you to dance, and sets out to do so with high energy and playful Parliament Funkadelic-inspired funk-rock jams like
« Krunked Up » and « Rage On! »

The album takes a turn to a more soulfully-inspired groove with « Rock Yo Soul. » A powerful drum intro, heavy guitar and bass lines underlie Big Sam’s deep trombone in this funk-laden tribute to
the classic rock gods such as Sabbath, Hendrix, and the Rolling Stones.

BSFN allows you to catch your breath with « Take 5, » then pushes forward full-throttle with driving and upbeat rendition of Otis Redding’s « Hard to Handle. » The straight BSFN party continues with
horn heavy funk tracks « Big Ole Booty » and « Work It. »

If you’ve ever seen BSFN live, you know exactly what Sam is talking about with « See Me Dance. » The horn-heavy song swings into a bouncy beat and breaks it down to the nitty gritty– Big Sam is a
dancing machine and you’d better be ready to shake too it when you come to a live show.

King of the Party closes strong with « Dance Floor, » an electronic funk track with lively vocals that could make a robot second line. King of the Party is full of pure musical energy andtranscends
the confines of homegrown New Orleans funk to a momentous blend of funk, rock, R&B and jazz that will keep the party going all night.

Healamonster & Tarsier – Cupcake Cave

Note : ++

Origine du Groupe : North America

Style Electro , Trip Hop

Sortie : 2009

Healamonster & Tarsier (H&T) are an electronic production duo whose music is characterized by soft vocals, mid-tempo elastic breakbeats, and a variety of traditional instruments. Their
musical style combines elements of dream pop, dub, ambient, and other cinematic forms of music.

Healamonster (Burgess Tomlinson) began writing songs with Tarsier (Rona Rapadas) in New York where they recorded their 2002 debut EP, « 00:00:01 (One Second) ». CMJ described it as « a psychedelic
fantasyland created with delicate vocals, light piano, a harshly-fuzzed out drum machine and mischievous electronic sounds. »

At the end of 2005, they self-released another EP, « The heart of a blue whale is the size of a small car », which was co-produced by Mitch Osias, a New York Film and TV soundtrack composer whom
they first met at Brooklyn venue, Southpaw, while opening for The Sneaker Pimps. The six-track album is full of atmospheric arrangements, subterranean cellos, abstract synthesizers, broken guitar
fuzz, programmed percussion, and crystalline vocal harmonies. Throughout 2006, the album was in heavy rotation at KCRW with songs, « Cotton Candy » and « Vista » played by veteran DJs Nic Harcourt
(« Morning Becomes Eclectic ») and Jason Bentley (« Metropolis »). The album enjoyed commercial success on an indie level, staking its post on Amoeba Music’s Best Selling Electronic Albums List for a
continuous 15 months. Over 500 copies have been sold at indie retail giant, Amoeba Music in Hollywood, CA to date.

H&T have collaborated with different artists, including Ninja Tune/ Mush recording artist, Neotropic. Tarsier also collaborated with electronic/hip hop producer, Alias from Anticon, on two
albums (“Brookland/Oaklyn”, released May 2006 and “Plane That Draws A White Line”, released September 2006). H&T toured the U.S. extensively throughout 2006, playing 40 dates with the 4-piece
Alias & Tarsier live band for these Anticon releases.

In 2008, they settled in Los Angeles from New York and recorded tracks for their first full-length, « Cupcake Cave ». The album was produced by Jaymee Carpenter and recorded and mixed by engineer
Arnie Geher in Studio City, CA. The result is an ambient pop album baked with layers of enigmatic soundscapes and intricate melodies. A blissful marriage of melodic whimsy and emotive
introspection that transports you to a wonderland of acoustic guitars, zither, vocal harmonies, dog collars, UFO sightings, dubby beats, double rainbows, dirty rainbows and of course the sweet
serenity of cupcakes. H&T’s goal for this album was to create a peaceful and abstract soundtrack to everyday meandering. It celebrates the constant search for hidden trails and the ones that
eventually lead us to caves.

Akira Kosemura – Grassland

Note :

Origine du Groupe : Japan

Style : Electro , Electro Piano

Sortie : 2010

Just to confuse matters there’s two different versions of the new Akira Kosemura album. There’s a regular single CD version which contains all the kinds of things you’d find in that kind of
package (ie cardboard sleeve and shiny musical face mirror thing). There’s also a CD/DVD version which is six quid more and features the aforementioned goodness plus an extra DVD which I’ve not
seen yet. So I’m not sure if it’s worth the extra quid for the seven track DVD. Maybe if I get some time soon I’ll watch it and let you know somehow through some modern medium like Twitter or
something else equally as stupid. Here Akira creates a more organic sound featuring the likes of Paniyolo, Haruka Nakemura, Aspidistrafly etc. It still features all the twinkles and the like…
the things you come to expect from a new CD on Schole. It seems less electronic that previous releases I’ve heard from him. There’s still lots of micro electronics and piano but there’s plenty of
acoustic guitar poking it’s head around pastoral corners. It’s all very pretty and nice, perhaps too nice but I’m not sure if anything can really be too nice. The vocals that pop up on the odd
track are also refreshing and the collaborative efforts here make this an interesting (yet nice) release. Lovely

Up, Bustle & Out – Soliloquy

Note :

From Official Site :

 Listening to the music of Up Bustle & Out, I feel each song is a testimonial, conveyed on timeless instruments full of grace, and modern electronic wizardry as well.

– Pablo Yglesias aka DJ Bongohead

Ever since setting out as one of the first and most prominent jazz – dance combos on the young Ninja Tune label, Up, Bustle & Out have come a long way since pioneering Ninja Tune’s global
reach. Their search for sounds, traditions, stories, allies and cultural change has lead them to places like South America: Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica, Europe, urban mega-cities like New York and
Tokyo and the Orient. Their studio base in Bristol, England is the place where they bring it all together, forging one colorful, authentic and truly revolutionary album after another, and, in
this collage process, relentlessy experimenting with sounds and styles to generating creative, new dubs, fusions and versions.

Up, Bustle, & Out have me mesmerized, intoxicated, enveloped in a process that takes the idea of collaboration and synthesis one step further to transform art through the alchemy of sound

– Pablo Yglesias aka DJ Bongohead

Soliloquy is full of moods, sounds, landscapes and even evokes the scents of foreign places. There is the Bosporus region, which was already celebrated on a double disc (Istanbul’s Secrets), and
where singer and actress Sevval Sam has long since become an extended family member. It’s her voice that dominates most of the album’s 13 tracks. We can also discover the voices of Bronagh Slevin
(ex- Crustacean), as well as Columbian singer Andrea Echeverri, and « Sally’s City Cats » appear on the studio rooftops of the Bristol production HQ.

Soliloquy album front cover by Up, Bustle and Out The Andalucian vibe on Waterfalls of Gold is provided by Benjamin Escoriza, singer of award-winning Radio Tarifa, while credit for most of the
other spanish moods must go to band member Cuffy « El Guapo » and his dreamatic and tense Flamenco guitar work. Fellow Bristolian Jim Barr of Portishead Band and The Blessing provides the
trustworthy foundation on his beloved double bass. Other U, B&O stalwarts from Bristol include trumpeter Andy Hague and the bucket-loads of percussion by the Eugenia Ledesma (Argentina)…
Again, founding member, Rupert Mould Medd made the musical journey across Europe to Instanbul to return with the recorded tapes of magical studio session work, while his partner « Clandestine » Ein
held out at the HQ composing and adopting the hands-on production approach that is now the U, B & O trademark.

A soliloquy conjures for me a single dream, a drop of water, a bubble, a violin solo: the spoken word recounts the inner feelings of one self among many.

– Pablo Yglesias aka DJ Bongohead

Let us not forget that the album title hints at moments of loneliness and inwardness. Powerfull club tunes, so much loved by DJs and dancers around the world, take a step back this time, giving
way to delicate arrangements, Eastern chords and contemplative moods that all contribute to the album’s common thread: the spirit of our environment, our concerns for a future, the very sounds of

Listen closely, you will hear the sound of beach surf, winds, animal and children, also a movie organ, a steam boat leaving the harbour, or a Gypsy carousel. These field recordings were captured
over the years by band founder and musical director Rupert Mould Medd.

With the addition of four dubs and versions as bonus tracks, this album, covers a wide range of the world. It is softer, deeper, introspective and certainly carefully crafted, skillful movements
as U, B & 0 strive for the next level. This release not only celebrates a unique and deeply humanistic vision of a globalized world, and its concerns, but also the leading role of Istanbul –
as an inspiration for the European Capital of Culture in 2010.

Mourah – From One Human Being to Another

Note :

From Myspace :

By the end of 2003, Mourah starts his musical carreer with the release of his debut album FROM ONE HUMAN BEING TO ANOTHER. It is a fine and pure piece of work that finds its centre in a raw blend
of acoustic and electronic sonorities.

Author composer arranger and performer, he brings us here an ensemble of diverse themes in their intensity and style: «It is not a homogeneous album with tracks following a logical sonority in
order to set a scene in the listener’s imagination. It is rather a kind of collection of my first (serious) musical attempts as a composer exploring different fields such as trip-hop and
drum’n’bass amongst others…Therefore there is no main connecting thread running through the tracks, here what links them is the rupture from one to another. It is not an one-hour single journey
but rather eleven journeys of five minutes each».

In sum, it reflects shared experiences first with a funk band called Anticlockwise in Geneva (1995) and later with his friend Dj Kmi (co-founder of Geneva collective Audioactivity) in the quest
of the art of djing by mainly mixing drum’n’bass and breakbeat tunes.

It would finally be the Portuguese independent label Nova Zona/ Zona Musica to give him the first chance of showing his skills. Aware of his lack of experience they bet, nevertheless, on the one
hand on his sensitivity and on the other hand on the cultural richness an early immigration to switzerland might have given him. It is in some sense, on a personal level a return to his roots, to
an unknown country after his father’s death. A page is now turned and many more are about to be written. To our concern, musical ones.

FROM ONE HUMAN BEING TO ANOTHER was nominated for best national album 2003, at the Dance-Club Music Awards, rewarding alternative and electronic music both Portuguese and international. For him
the highest point of a global acknowledgment by the media and specialized press.

Jacob Miller – Tenement Yard 1976-80

Note :

From Wikipedia :

Il est élevé par sa mère Joan Hashman jusqu’à l’âge de huit ans. Ne pouvant subvenir à tous ses besoins, elle décide de le confier à ses grands-parents qui habitent un quartier non loin de
Trenchtown. À 13 ans, grâce à l’aide de son ami Al Campbell, Jacob enregistre ses deux premiers titres (Love is a message et My girl has left me) dans le studio de Coxsone Dodd. Un autre passage
chez Bunny Lee avec la chanson What more can I do le détermine vraiment à devenir chanteur.

Cependant il lui faudra encore attendre six ans avant de pouvoir enregistrer le morceau qui lui fera connaitre le succès. C’est Augustus Pablo qui lui propose d’enregistrer Keep on knocking au
Studio Dynamic, une variante de Love is a message.Le titre connait un véritable succès et Jacob reste donc à ses côtés quelque temps et s’investit de plus en plus dans la musique et dans le
mouvement Rastafari.

En 1976 il rejoint Inner Circle et ils enregistrent « Tenement Yard », ce sera le plus grand succès que Jacob Miller ai connu. De nombreux hits suivent tels que Tire fi lick weed ina Bush, Foward
Jah Jah Children, Take a Lift, 80 000 careless Ethiopians,… Inner Circle est alors un groupe incontournable de la scène jamaïcaine.

En 1978 il joue dans le film Rockers.

Il meurt tragiquement au volant de sa voiture le 23 mars 1980.
