At first glance it might seem to be an odd move by TIM PARIS to call the first release on his new imprint Marketing Music â€ť a tribute to John Surman”, but you just shouldnâ€™t take this too litteraly: there are no screeching yowling saxophon excursions here – itâ€™s rather the atmospherics, the mood and the will to search for new exciting sounds and rhythms that are reference to one of UKâ€™s leading saxmen and major asset to the famous ECM label catalogue. TIM PARIS mix demonstrates this principal to perfection with serene interwoven melodies as well as fresh sounds bytes and mind-altering technical gadgetry strung together by a loose tech-boogie beat. TEKELâ€™s contribution is the most straight forward: a busy tech-shaker with a scraping bassline and synth lines striking like bolts from the blue. I:CUBEâ€™s take is very delicate with a impromptu grassroots tribal riddim made of handclaps and few percussion paired with layers of intertwined sweet, childlike melodies that are close to stumble over each other and getting drained in echo.expect to be surprised and step into tomorrow!
