Frankfurt, Germany-based Saafi Brothers are an electronics oriented outfit that perpetuates trippy vibes and calming EFX. However, the musicians (Michael Kohlbecker and Gabriele le Mar) enhance their palette with pumping rhythms and inauspicious treatments amid quaint melodies. They effectively meld elements of the visual with lucid soundscapes and blissful themes. Hence, it becomes easily discernible why these artists are in demand for commercials and film scores. There's an underlying pulse embedded among all of the dance-like implications.
One of the noticeable qualities of this record resides within the divergent characteristics when viewed upon as an entity. Otherwise, the instrumentalists execute this material with the delicacy and exactitude of a painter, applying strokes to a canvas. On the flip side, they're apt to meld faintly concocted tribal motifs via booming patterns and hallowed sounds by using space and depth to great effect. The group's layered approach provides a multidimensional framework that hits the mark in decisive fashion. Recommended.
I love jazz because transports me to another reality.
I was first exposed to jazz a concert on the lake many years ago.
I met many musicians at various international jazz festivals.
The best show I ever attended was Jazzascona in Suisse.
The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
My advice to new listeners is listen to music with an open mind.
Listen, think and share jazz everywhere.
