Jazz Of The Machine
Amazing micro and minimalistic house jazz album. Be fast on this one. A full-length album by Ohm Hourani that travels long the didactic path of modular synthesizers and drum machines, while in the company of carefully hand-picked musicians and vocalists. This seven-track LP delves into the unpredictability of two musical worlds: Electronic and Jazz. Beginning with the intricate composition of the cheerful ‘Oasis in Heaven’ and moving on to discover the mysteries hidden in ‘The Bicycle Tour’, the first record twists and turns into the challenging narrative of ‘Bahe’, before saying its final few words of goodbye to ‘Abusamir.’ On the second record, ‘Coucou’ sits to script the love of life or the love of a lifetime. ‘Happy Mutek’ fortifies energy new and old and escorts us to moments of alleviation. The eponymous ‘Jazz of the Machine’ is the flag-bearer and ultimate demonstration of the bond between air and its reliance on the electricity of soul and souls. Encasing this double record is a sleeve that features a luscious illustration by Laucolo entitled ‘Batikha’.
