Returning with the first taste of new music since sharing their second album called The Search earlier this year is jazz ensemble Collocutor who continues to enthral with ‘Black Satin’.
The title track kicks off the EP and sees the collective paying respectful homage to Miles Davis’ song, from his benchmark On The Corner LP, and owning it from the off.
The project also features the label’s latest signing, DJ Khalab delivering a remix of ‘The Search’, there’s also a killer live version of ‘The Search’ recorded during the ‘Live at the Fish Factory’ Session in 2016. Finishing off the release is Ruth Goller’s remix of ‘Everywhere’.
Speaking about the EP via the press release, label founder Pete OntheCorner said: “This EP ushers in a string of releases that embody the label’s vision. The futuristic concept first realised by Miles Davis with On The Corner and more generally during his electric period is at the heart of our collaborative, genre-less burning chalice. Analogue genius being mutated with a charge into something other, a vanishing point of ethereal musical feeling where the space for fresh narratives can be formed beyond genre and out On the Corner. Victoria’s artwork is always stunning, and for this series of works she has already conquered the sublime with the sleeve for Black Satin”.
Packed with a hip groove from start to finish and brimming with their signiture vibrant energy, Collocutor drops another gem so it’s needless to say that we can’t wait to hear the full EP.
