About this item

The Polish DJ duo aim to 'Resurrect the dusty and smoky spirit of '60s and '70s Polish Jazz and then re-imagine it for 21st century audiophiles'. This period in Polish history was deeply Communist and jazz presented a different reality and an emotional escape. From "Shivers", which does exactly what it says on the tin, on into the double bass-driven "Long Distance Call", the wah-trumpeted, heavy riffing "Test Drive", the funkiest drumming of the title-track and cut up torch song aesthetic of "Deep Breath", this is a record brimming with ideas, with atmosphere, with the kind of intelligent cut and paste that makes it an artform instead of a form of theft.
