the mysterious zohar – nobody knows who he is, but what we do know is that his music is truly remarkable. we first took notice of him for his great records on the equally fantastic label quintessentials. his love for philly soul samples is one of the reasons why he is such a perfect match for tenderpark since we are big philly lovers ourselves. brooklyn 9.30 am and dog day are full of wonderful soul references and so is the drei farben house edit of brooklyn. another deep quality outing from tenderpark. supported by alex agore, roman rauch, ivano tetelepta, skipson, borrowed identity, adryiano, ynk
the unsung has struck again. the mystery of that guy who hides himself under many sheets of pseudonyms like the zohar or ibrahim might be relevant or not, it is not the point. what is important is that his music is good as hell! exploring the inner workings of afro-americans dance music history, from sketchy blues and jazz to disco, hip hop and the toughest techno, his music is a proposition of what house music is or should be.
quintessentials welcome the zohar! deep, raw and real? well then, thats exactly what the zohars music is all about - and much more! its soulful, its funky yet dark! its black music! what or who is the zohar? we dont know. no one knows. the mystery shall remain sealed. enjoy those 3 fabulous tracks! peace!
fascinating compilation review on tel avivs new music scene! (remixed israeli-yemenite disco number from the seventies, a bundle of colourful andpsychedelic beats, a gentle and wellpolished pop tune, a song so frank it hurts that develops into a percussive devils dance,and three tracks touched by poetry: a modern-electronic rendition to the groundbreaking iconic tel-aviv)
