CUMMI FLU
Cummi Flu is the latest persona of ever morphing, multi-media illusionist Oliver Doerell. Originating from Brussels, the analogue-electronic pioneer has been the driving force behind earlier incarnations Dictaphone and SWOD, as well as embodying the Odd Orchestra of Raz Ohara. Well-versed in downbeat electronics, Cummi Flu sees Doerell explore his acid-laced visions of psychedelic forms and frequencies.
The first recordings present a collection of sound collage cut-ups based on home-made instruments with self-tuned rubber bands and bass kalimba at its beating heart. The resulting tracks are an exploration into otherworldly rhythms with the rise and fall of a swollen tide.
Cummi Flu produces a hard to place sound, while at the same time preying on ancient feelings of estrangement, sanctuary and self-exploration.

KAI BIRD
Ka Baird is most well known as one of the founding and continuing members of the long running avant psych project Spires That In The Sunset Rise. Since relocating to Brooklyn in November 2014, Baird has set off in numerous directions apart from Spires with many new collaborations as well as honing in on her solo work. On her debut solo release under the moniker Sapropelic Pyncic, « See Sun Think Shadow » is 8 tracks of piano improvisations performed on a Steinway Grand in December of 2011 in a church in her hometown of Decatur, Illinois. These improvisations have a raw focus that premiere Baird’s piano background as well as her very own style of punctuation, spacing and repetition. Her approach brings to mind the playful, spacious qualities of Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, the unrestraint of Cecil Taylor, the rolling arpeggiations of Alice Coltrane, and the ghostliness of Arvo Pärt. « See Sun Think Shadow » was released as a limited edition of 200 copies pressed on yellow vinyl through the Brooklyn label and magazine Perfect Wave and released on October 6, 2015.

TOKYO TRIBAL GROOVE ORCHESTRA
GOCOO are a bunch of female and male drummers from Tokyo (Japan) who capture their audiences with original grooves woven with traditional Japanese drums, Taikos. On stage the up to 16 artists create a live music-spectacle beyond imagination when beating the hell out of a battery of their more than 40 drums. GOCOO’s mighty beats, juicy grooves and unique poly-rhythms are of such primal nature that they reflect all known music styles and consequently unite people of all ages, ethnic and social roots and of any taste in music. No matter where GOCOO performs, at major World & Roots, Rock & Pop or alternative Music & Culture festivals, in live clubs, classic theatres and concert halls or at techno events, the band takes all audiences on a mesmerizing trip between trance and ecstasy – drumming down all borders between east and west, tradition and pop, rite and party. Newsweek included GOCOO in their all time top 100 list of Japan’s heroes, challengers, pioneers and icons, as « their borderless sound, a mix of rock and ethnic music from around the world, is cherished by international audiences ».

HIEROGLYPHIC BEING
Producer and boss of Mathematics records, Jamal Moss a.k.a Hieroglyphic Being is a one-off musical explorer. Jamal’s music takes cues from the EBM and House that played a huge part in the Chicago’s musical underground in the late eighties and early nineties, notably Ron Hardy and Adonis, but also Industrial, Avant-Jazz and Noise. His tireless schedule of rough low-key releases over the last 12 years and his intense, very physical, psychedelic music, have made him a key exponent or maybe even a pioneer of what’s recently come to be named ‘Outsider House’, although he prefers the more Sun-Ra like descriptors of ‘Rhythmic Cubism’ and ‘Cosmic Be-Bop’. His releases, much like his music, have straddled House labels and the more leftfield avant garde electronic imprints with ease. However his deeply held Afrofuturist intent and the discipline of his radical designs set him apart from the pack. Always moving forward, his music is an ever-evolving transmission from his mind to our bodies, or as he sees it, a form of meditation that the supple, tuned listener will enjoy immensely.

NICOLA CRUZ
Nicola Cruz’s music invokes the landscapes and rituals of his homeland,Ecuador, a country that is home both to the Andes mountains and the Amazon jungle. His music is an exploration of ancient mythologies and folkloric traditions in a modern setting. Nicola was born in Limoges, France, to Ecuadorian parents. His upbringing was surrounded by a rich musical education in both indigenous traditions and Western theories and
from a young age he took to percussion.
From this musical connection between past and present, traditional and modern, an ongoing South American movement has arisen, exploring the local indigenous and Afro-cosmologies through a carefully crafted analogue sound.

All the best.

Regards.

Alain
