It’s a new day, and what better way to start it than with a new guest playlist? The brilliant Berlin-based jazz/hip-hop outfit Move 78 has lovingly selected our latest guest playlist.
It is a double delight today as the band has also released a new track from their forthcoming third studio album, ‘Grains’, coming on 3rd November via Village Live Records. The quartet’s new track, ‘D.O.T.S’, offers an earwarming glimpse of the album. The single features Aquiles Navarro, whose wonderful trumpet flourishes embellish the track.
In addition to Navarro, the album also features collaborations with A.J. Nilles on viola, Eric Owusu on percussion and rising star of the German soul/jazz scene singer Douniah.
We’re excited to share the new track and present their playlist, featuring music from Floating Points, Nala Sinephro, Makaya McCraven, Art Ensemble Of Chicago, David Axelrod, Portishead, and more.
Without further ado, over to Move 78 who have put together a track by track guide – enjoy.
Irreversible Entanglements – Fireworks
We did a remix of this tune for our first radio show – The Move 78 Show – on Refuge Worldwide, which led to our collaboration with Aquiles Navarro who plays trumpet on D.O.T.S. and our previous release Hectic As…
Amon Tobin – Bridge
Lynchian, atmospheric sampled jazz madness!
Floating Points – Silhouettes (I,II & III)
Sprawling dynamic jazz epic, with beautiful strings and heavy drum breaks.
Nala Sinephro – Space 4
Nala’s album was a welcome tonic in the stress of the pandemic. She is someone we would love to collaborate with in the future if the planets aligned.
Makaya McCraven – Tall Tales
Makaya is one of the foremost musicians in the new wave of jazz, also producing self-sampling compositions.
Art Ensemble Of Chicago – Theme de Yoyo
Experimentation, funk, chaos. One of Aver’s all-time favourite tracks.
jaimie branch – theme 001
We were lucky enough to see jaimie perform in Berlin during the pandemic. She was an incredible performer.
David Axelrod – A Divine Image
Aver takes huge influence from DJ Shadow, who in turn takes huge influence from Axelrod. Master of tension-building and dynamic compositions.
DJ Shadow – Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt
We do a mean cover of this live 🙂
Portishead – Magic Doors
Another band known for self-sampling and blending hip-hop styles with live instrumentation.
