About this item
The well respected Omena travels south of the Mediterranean Sea, antique maps and compass in hand, for the release of Parviz's "Zerzura EP".
An expedition to the eponymous mythical oasis, west of the Nile river, stirring 'the passion of men', as St-Exupery would put it. Four songs of romance and reverie, taking you through a dizzying jazz journey, full of twists and turns; starting with emboldened trumpets, only to end on a handful of quaint piano notes.
As dusk settles upon the dunes, the mirage has now vanished, and the forlorn hope turns into a soul-searching journey.
Matt says: Beautiful, otherworldly, slightly spiritual house vibrations contained within. None a million miles away from Theo's Rotating Assembly or indeed, Carl Craig's Innerzone Orchestra. With nods to Ron Trent & Glenn Underground also, there's a relaxed and subliminal nature to these tracks that should set them in fine favour with the old school deep house firm.
