About this item
The Colours That Rise ensure Rhythm Section's current bombardment of new releases continues unabated. "Mixtape 1" comprises of one brand new studio production and two new compositions recorded live from the mothership in 2020 AD.
The new record may be short but contains 3 very different moods which seek to transport the listener away from the current toils and tribulations we face on planet Earth. Yussef Dayes returns to the drumkit on "Special Request" for a smudged and skewed slice of future-funk which is heavy on the head nod and likely to make Ras G spark up a fat one from beyond his grave upon hearing...
“Axel G” is the clubbier track outta the three; think Afrika Bambaata meets Drexciya. Psychedelic electro is a genre with relatively few contributors but this number, here performed live, should inject the next generation with some creative juices to work with.
The EP is closed out with the smoochy bedroom business of “Polo 1.2” - a welcome return of Simeon Jones to vocal duties who douses the track in his inimitable homesick blues.
Top stuff from this fledging band, definitely ones to watch as we close off this most tumultuous of rotations around the Sun...
