Something (new and) special this way comes. DJ Simbad launches his new imprint Modern Dialect. The first release is Fred P & SMBD - Mantras for the Travelling Souls (vol.1). Real authentic House music from two visionary producers who have first met a decade ago in NYC. If you’ve ever found yourself lost in a Theo Parrish, DJ Qu or Moodyman vortex, you’ll be all over this.
Velvet-lush synths, timeless samples, strafing bass keys, spaced-out jazz-taught grooves & yearning chord movements are delivered with a precision balance of weight and introspection by NYC's own House legend and Soul People label head Fred P - aka Black Jazz Consortium - and SMBD - the raw house alias of the unboxable Simbad - who has contributed to the the catalogues of Freerange, BBE, Apron, Local Talk, Defected, Brownswood & more and who's production credits include deeper Dubstep don Mala (DMZ), UK Hip Hop star Roots Manuva, Cuban songstress Dayme Arocena, Detroit House producer Kai Alce and Brazilian superstar artist/actor Seu Jorge amongst others.
Mantras for the Travelling Soul Vol.1 is a Limited Edition 12" release featuring 3 x emotional and dynamic extended jams to lift heads, swell hearts and move feet + 2 x "Mantraludes" connecting and creating a truly unique record.
Tech-soul journeying at its finest. Lasting and gratifying. Deep House nirvana. [info from ld]
