Jazz has always breathed a vitality into dance music that can’t be found elsewhere. And this from Black Jazz Consortium perfectly illustrates the very point. The accumulation of soaring, life-affirming chords and keys of Essential Paradise, featuring Slikk Tim, plays testament with this first release on Fred P’s brand new imprint. Taste the Fred P Reshape with its rich abundance of soulful goodness, or next try the hot envelope of the Mystery of Fantasy Reprise which equally surrounds you in beautiful musicality. Contrasting that is Mr G’s Fantasy Mix which leaves you in little doubt as the brutal, grainy realisation of drums and bass hits you hard. Or there is the probing ambience of the Continuation Interlude of 120 Black Key Experiment to choose from, asking questions minus drums and rhythm.
Release: November 23
