A bright blend of abstract electronics and leftfield jazz from Dutch experimentalist Mitchel Van Dinther, aka Jamezoo – and one more significant reminder that the Brainfeeder label is home to some of the best, most creative modern instrumental music of the past couple decades! After the Flying Lotus, Thundercat , Kamasi Washington and other Brainfeeder epiphanies, you could be forgiven for wondering if the label had peaked already, but Jameszoo belongs in that esteemed company – really! Synths and electronic errata are blended with a lot of different live instruments in unpredictable, definitely abstract, but oddly cohesive ways here that are unlike anything else exactly, but definitely in the universe of Flying Lotus the Brainfeeder camp. Cosmic electronics arranged with strings, percussion, horns, guitar and a wide range of other instruments, even occasional vocals, depending on the needs of the track at hand – and it's pretty amazing! Guests include Arthur Verocai and Steve Kuhn, which should give you a hint of how expansive the vibe is – and the titles include "Flake", "Lose", "Soup", "Flue" featuring guitar by Arthur Verocai, "Wrong", "Meat", "The Zoo" with Rhodes and vocals by Steve Kuhn, "Crumble", "Toots" and "Teeth".
