EXCLUSIVE

 

This is the new extremely limited 300 copies WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE to customers of Sounds Of The Universe/Soul Jazz Records 12" single - the latest in our unique and highly sought-after and collectible Art +Sound 12" set of releases.  Hand-numbered, pressed on 180gram vinyl. Includes a download code and 12 x 12" print by brazilian artist and photographer Brisa Chander.

 

Previous singles in the Art+Sound Sounds of The Universe 12" series are from Aybee, Kassem Mosse, Hieroglyphic Being, Andres, Blludd Relations, Heatsick and Tevo Howard.  

 

Rising mega-talent Tenderlonious is a South London multi-instrumentalist and vocalist associated with the growing talents of Mo Kolours, Al Dobson Jr, Jeen Bassa, Reginald Ommas Mammode IV, and Henry Wu -- many of whom have been grouped under the banner of the 22a label he founded.

The tracks he’s provided for us layer sweet soulfulness with louche RnB and a heap of jazz. MPC, bass clarinet, rhodes, and indian flute are played live with an un-quantised, one-take approach -- sort of like Madlib’s yesterday’s new quintet and Theo Parrish colliding at the crossroads of house and hip-hop.

 

With the melodic insights in these improvised arrangements, it’s not surprising to learn of a reverence for the Eastern jazz sound of Yusef Lateef, Eric Dolphy, Abdullah Ibrahim, as much inspired by the sampling habits of J Dilla aswell as his studies with saxophone greats like Israeli legend Gilad Atzmon, Ronie Scott alum Pat Crumly, Tom Whitehead, and Jean Toussaint.

On "Caramel" these influences ripen - as a punchy, rattling rhythm track slowly spreads into a mesh of heavily jazzed keys and percolating bass. "Something Different" scales things down, matching a meandering bassline -- like a screwed version of Lil Louis’ Nice n Slo -- with falsetto vocals sweetly treated for a South London take on Sa-Ra. The extended Instrumental version cranks up the peripheral sound effects, swirling through Rhodes padding before fading into a teasing bonus sketch.
