Product Type: VINYL LP
After their self-titled debut (WERF 151EP, 2018), Mdciii (saxophonist Mattias de Craene (Nordmann) and his drummers Simon Segers (De Beren Gieren/Absynthe Minded) and Lennert Jacobs (The Germans/Hong Kong Dong)) launch their full-length debut, Dreamhatcher. de Craene's sensationally strident sax parts elevate the hypnotizing grooves of rhythmic duo Segers and Jacobs to an ecstatic level. The almost alarming sound that stems from this combination leaves every listener in a kind of cinematic daze that would enthuse even directors like David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino. But is it jazz? Who cares? As prodigies of the new wave of Belgian jazz, de Craene and his two soul-mates effortlessly marry the virtuosity and free spirit of jazz to influences from the other end of the musical spectrum, from tribal rhythms and roots to far-out electronics. It makes it hard to categorize their music, unless the category extraordinary counts of course! LP includes download.
