It’s not every day that you listen to Balearic jazz, but Village of the Sun provides one such beuatiful moment. The track takes you on a sonic trip to uncharted musical landscapes where the blissful mix of electronic beats, and heady jazz improvisation will lull you into a state of euphoria.
Taking inspirations from music legends such as Alice Coltrane, Airto Moreira and Masters at Work, the track is awash with soaring sax, powerful drums and slick arrangement and production. Ratcliffe says:
“I’ve always liked improvised instrumental music. It has this intensity and eccentricity and takes me places. It connects with me deeply and resonates with me far more than traditional ‘songs’ with words. I approached Binker & Moses with these two tracks, just sonic skeletons really. They gave it flesh and blood – it was just left for me to dress it.”
We’re hoping there’s more to come from the trio, but for now – relax to Village of the Sun above.
