HOLTKAMP, KOEN Gong Solo Cassette
Koen Holtkamp presents Gong Solo on Cassauna. Holtkamp on the release: "These pieces are the first part of a series devoted to exploring the gong, so I decided to begin with a very simple approach. 'Mallet' is literally the first recording I made with the gong on the day I acquired it, so it represents my initial reaction to the instrument. It's the same basic tempo struck with a single mallet but varying intensity and position of the mallet on the gong to get a wider range of dynamics and sound. 'Sine' uses a single low frequency sine wave, tuned to a resonant frequency of the gong. Other than fading out the sine wave coming from the speaker behind the gong at the very end, I didn't make any changes during the recording, so the minute fluctuations that happen during the piece are purely from the gong interacting with the bass tone." "Mallet" was recorded in 2015 and "Sine" was recorded in 2016.

VA Far Out Jazz And Afro Funk CD
2010 release. Bringing together driving Afro beat, trademark Latin funk rhythms and American-styled jazz, this electrifying collection has been re-mastered for super high quality sound and shows off the field at its best. Far deeper and harder than you'd expect, African roots come through in the infectious batuque drumming, percussion and scatting chants. Alongside three previously unreleased tunes comes the very best grooving funk from Azymuth's chart buster "Jazz Carnival" to Sabrina Malheiros's modern classic "New Morning". Fusing the creative talents of this pioneering trio is the outstanding electronic music innovator Natures Plan, aka Marc Mac of 4 Hero: inventive, fearless but always utterly brilliant grooving funk. Brazilian Groove Band's "Dance" is a perfect North American, Latin cross over soulful jazz with the funkiest of edges: vintage New York brass and smoky jazz mix with the deep bass, percussion and '70s jazz funk organs of Brazil. There are also previously unreleased versions of Future Warriors's "Pembe" and Roc Hunter's "Magnetic Feel" before Sabrina Malheiros's beguiling summer anthem spectacular "New Morning" and Azymuth band leader and legendary keyboardist José Roberto Bertrami brings infectious '80s grooves on "Eighties Times". With heavy African and samba (brought to Brazil by predominantly African slaves in the 19th century) influenced tracks showcasing Brazil's musical heritage and the sounds of modern Brazil this is one of the very best, all-encompassing Brazilian jazz and Afro funk compilations, giving a true insight in to this ever evolving genre. Finishing where the album begins with a second track from the kings of jazz funk Azymuth, Offworld's psychedelic re-work of "Chameleon" floats this infectious collection to a beautifully warped close. Following hugely popular guides to bossa nova and samba, Far Out Recordings's third installment delivers a genre-spanning slice of the finest funky, afro jazz. Also features: Marcos Valle, Trouble Man, Grupo Batuque.

J'S BEE Isotope CD
2013 release. Isotope: Elemental variance defined by nuclei. From the Greek "isos" meaning equal and "topos" meaning place. Seven renowned musicians of distinct musical heritage with a shared vision and purpose, when combined, produce an utterly unique aural experience. Forged in the aftermath of Japan's nuclear catastrophe of 2011, Isotope is an album of precision crafted cinematic soundscapes fusing elements of jazz, rock and electronica layered with heartfelt vocals. A poignant musical depiction of our shared future hanging in the balance, Isotope sees J's Bee artfully maturing beyond genre. The album glides between evident musical dynamics and unbeknown musical genres. From the dark, bass driven album opener "Strange Supper", the momentous, ceaseless flurries of chaos in "Angel Puke" to "Granma", a sax-laden cut over a fast broken beat who's title refers to the name of the yacht used to transport 82 fighters of the Cuban Revolution in 1956 by Fidel Castro and Ernesto Guevara. Yuko's vocal takes "Chuck It All" under her wrath pronouncing lyrics of being maternal and a revolutionist in a tumultuous manner. The instrumental songs harbor the dark side, contrasting both humanity and the world, providing the listener with a smooth yet eerie ensemble of experimental approaches. The band that initially formed over 10 years ago stand by their original sound that set them apart, refraining from commercializing their music. Continuously receiving strong support for their borderless music style and performance ability has allowed J's Bee to interact and connect with people in all walks. With previous tracks featured on Japanese TV including a sync with a Smirnoff advertisement, they have been invited to numerous different music festivals and gigs including one of Japan's famous festivals, Metamorphose advocated by Dalai Lama, the World Festival of Sacred Music Hiroshima, and The Fuji Rock Festival where the bands spectrum of backgrounds from classic, jazz, rock, dub, electro and club music were fully embraced. Recorded at Trip Echo studio and mixed by Yagotoyama Kobo, Isotope is a lushly arranged album that goes beyond a genre.
