Shur-I-Kan – Singapore – Lazy Days Recordings

Listening to some Jazz on radio recently I was reminded about the sheer power that can be harnessed by simple piano chords. The organic nature of which it would be good to hear a lot more of, and soon. Such indeed as the opening bars contained in the title track of this new EP from Shur-I-Kan who conspires to infuse this excellent production with all manner of emotive notes and signatures that all at once fizz with atmosphere plus excitable energy. Or, to restate: this is music that transcends trends, defining its own space like a cross between the cinematic and classical, eventually contrasted by the sleazier intention of syncopated Hi-Energy basslines. All Things In Their Rightful Place, follows and again employs a vibrant range of motifs from African to Disco and beyond. Leaving, Kermits Lodge to complete with another tour de force in terms of musicality painting pictures, teasing out ever expanding rhythms. Positive perfection.
