Fat Jon and The Ample Soul Physician – Lightweight Heavy

Style : Abstract Hip Hop

Sortie : 2004

There aren’t enough natural resources on planet Earth to keep us going. And there are insufficient amounts of love, hospitality or, indeed, humane warmth. That’s all a given. But what is not
lacking in any way, shape or form on our madly spinning orb, is – instrumental hip hop.

Not that this bothers Fat Jon. Beat creator for Cincinnati based hip hop outfit Five Deez crew and sometime collaborator with German dubmeister Pole, Jon has carved a nice little side niche for
himself as a purveyor of, yup, the genre that has expanded exponentially ever since DJ Shadow showed the world how complete an instrument a sampler could be in the right hands.

Do we really need more?

Jon showed us back in 2002, on his album Wave Motion, that an ostensibly vocal-less album could speak volumes. He showed us how basslines could moil and mutter seductively, how jazz riffs could
burble magnificently, and how cleverly placed samples and skilful arrangements could trick us into thinking these instrumentals were actually songs.

Lightweight Heavy does the same again, conjuring up a certain sound ­summed up neatly in the title ­that balances butch, punchy riddims with summery vibes and simple structures that seem
multi-dimensional.

The first single, « Everywhere » is a case in point. A tripping, folkish vocalstitched to a coruscating harmony produces an endlessly pleasant bump that has simplicity written all over it, but is
still hopelessly infectious.

Opening gambit from the album, « Talk To Me », is pure pillow-talk; breathy vocal samples rising up from a deceptively brisk beat ride a classical piano riff that pushes your thoughts towards an
abstract horizon.

Trademark dubby basslines are a big reason for Jon’s allure. « Torn Again » and « Mystery Soul » tug directly at the knees, compensating for the overall lack in rhythm shifts and chord changes.

« Synopsis » takes another jazz-road entirely, heading for a kind of middle ground; strong and melodic, unburdened by the weight of weed-smoke, un-tempted by the noodling of free avant-gardism.
Then there’s the cosmic phunk of « Space Man », and the slathering sentimentality of « Her », which show that Jon is concerned with space, both inner and outer.

More economic than RJD2, less experimental than Prefuse 73, Jon has his own lucid, light-heavy sound that, regardless of the glut of beatz in the world today, occupies a special ­and necessary
place.

It is hot in the Netherlands. With temperatures rising up to 36º C, or more

this weekend. The whole country is in a hot summer mood, hanging out

on terraces with big glasses of cold beer. Same time we are all very exited

about being in the finals of the worldcup. Orange fever going ’round the land.

The music that fits a hot summer night like no other, a nice piece

of steady soukous. Choc Stars are the band to fulfil that request

for us tonight. Make a slow but groovy dance with Choc Stars.

Je vous avais déjà parlé de Timber Timbre (bon, j’peux pas vous faire un lien vers le billet en question, un 403 Forbidden  de plus et j’explose), ce groupe canadian de folk/blues dont la
notoriété ne cesse de grimper, qui a été récompensé par un prix Polaris et qui en pleine tournée américaine, ce qui devrait leur offrir une plus grande visibilité internationale. J’me prends même
à espérer une tournée européenne en 2010. Comment définir leur musique… C’est en quelque sorte un mélange de Devendra Banhart et M. Ward, avec une voix qui me fait penser à Charlie Winston,
notamment dans « Demon Host ». C’est génial.

Mute Beat – No. 0 Virgin Dub

https://i2.wp.com/www.tsutaya.co.jp/images/jacket/00599/4517331154617_1L.jpg

Note :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mute_Beat

Origine du Groupe : Japan

Style : Dub

Sortie : 1996

A Mute Beat era uma banda influente do reggae dub do Japão. Sua primeira liberação foi uma fita  cassete intitulada ´´Mute Beat ´´ em 1984 na etiqueta Roir de Nova Iorque,mostrando um reggae
do estilo dub, jazz e ska. Esta banda japonesa pouco conhecida desenvolveu realmente todos os três estilos. Embora a música tenha suas raízes profundamente no reggae autêntico, com as linhas de
baixo gordas de Takayosi Matsunaga e o rufar apertado da bateria de Gota Yasiki,assim como na música de Mile Davis o jazz borbulha frequentemente à superfície, agradecimentos a um duo de
tocadores de metais (o trompetista Kazufumi Kodama e trombonista Akihito Masui). O grupo trabalha extremamente bem juntos, e seu som varia do dub-pesado, ao dancehall como em « Still Echo » ao
´´groovy´´ relaxante de « Mixed Up » (uma de poucas trilhas com vocais) e a vibrante  » Downtown ». Um álbum inacreditável e influente, que a começa a ganhar a atenção que mereceu já há muitos anos.
Conduzida pelo trumpetista  Kazufumi  ´´Echo´´ Kodama, a música do Mute Beat é dominada pelos metais, o trumpete e o trombone frequentemente  incorporando e entrelaçando o som em
um bailado harmônico, como em ´´Landscape´´. Membros da banda: Akihito Masui(trombone), Gota Yashiki (bateria), Hirofumi Asamoto (teclados), Izumi Miyazaki(teclados,dub mixer), Kazufumi Kodama
(trumpete), Takayoshi Matsunaga (baixo),Kenji Kitamura (teclados) e Mitsuwa Sakamoto (piano,teclados) ,entre outros membros itinerantes.

A banda contou no álbum Mute Beat – Live (gravado em 1989) com convidados jamaicanos como Gladstone ‘Gladdy’ Anderson nos teclados,Dwight ‘Brother Dee’ Pickney na
guitarra,e Roland Alphonso no tenor saxofone..

Gravaram um álbum tributo a Roland Alphonso em 1988 chamado Roland Alphonso meets Mute Beat´´com temas dos Skatalites e de Roland..

Augustus Pablo participou de Still Echo (Melodica Mix)..

Em ´´Mute Beat Dub Wise´´ de 1989 utilizaram temas os temas dos monstros jamaicanos do dub

Lee´´Scratch´´ Perry e King Tubby….
