Mole Listening Pearls is a label for downbeat connoisseurs and atmospheric beat aficionados. Bringing us the best that the European scene has to offer, Mole offerings smack of style and sophistication. And just listening to this collection, you'll start to feel deliciously stylish yourself. Listening Pearls Vol. 3 uses shades of downtempo, drum & bass and house to create a lush, moody soundscape. "Dubtronic" by Nor Elle is a spacey, dubby track taken from his excellent Slapstick album, released in late 2001. Newcomer to the label, Japanese DJ Nob Tee makes an impressive appearance with the hip-hop influenced "Cosmic Pink" that shows off his jazz stylings. A Juan Da Silva remix of Naomi's "Avenue L'Amour" brings some mellow house into the collection, and the reclined drum & bass of the Dualists and Q-Point round out the album. The only disappointing inclusion is Geb.El's "I'm Not In Love" cover. His recent From A Distant Point of View album has much more to offer. Overall though, Listening Pearls 3 creates a cerebral, mellow mood that should encourage you to check out full lengths from the artists included, and to look forward to the coming year of Mole releases. It will amply take care of your aural interior decorating needs.
Learning Jazz gave me a masters degree in music. Jazz is American Classical Music, came
out of a need to be heard, to be understood, a voice when black America did not have one.
This is why the music is more than just an art form, it was created from blood, guts and heart
of those who suffered in this world. Its not to be taken lightly. If you do take it lightly it will
never sound right. Thank you to all the courageous musicians who made the world hear
them, their innovation came out of their experiences of the time that they lived. A treasure to
the world. American Classical Music. Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate a quote by Clark Terry.
