Sweet :: Revolutionvoid

I love JAZZ! There, I've said it... My name is Thomas and I am a Jazz fan (please note: that's a JAZZ fan and NOT a jazz mag fan)

I found a link to revolutionvoid via Alex Young's Milieu blog. It is a free download of some of the sweetest jazz electronica that I have heard in a long while. It truly is amazing if you like that kind of thing. Here's some of Milieu's thoughts on the album ::
Increase the Dosage combines breakbeat and melodic electronica in a charming way that makes for something not only worth listening to, but also something you’ll keep coming back to for years to come.

Revolution Void is a project by producer and jazz pianist Jonah Dempcy, mixing jazz and breakbeat. With bass by Matthew Garrison, sax by Seamus Blake and Darryl Estes, and guitars by Nicolas Manel, there’s a lot of serious musicians contributing some excellent material to the album. This, and careful production, makes Increase the Dosage an exceptional package. Surprisingly, it’s free to download, released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 license...
With my mind feeding off jazz just now (see the videos previously posted) this album is so welcome...

Check it out...Its a worthy download. Thanks to Jonah Dempcy for giving his work away for free - It is appreciated!

Check out Milieu's blog too - well worthy of a bookmark!

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you liked the album!

I'm releasing a single with remixes in the next few weeks here, also licensed through the Creative Commons. I'll give you a heads-up when it's out. It will have a kind-of epic IDM breaks remix by Sevenless and a 4-to-the-floor house remix by Citizen Prime.

So, glad to hear you're getting into jazz ... who are some of your favorite jazz artists?

Besides the classics (Bird, Trane, Cannonball, et al) I am really into modern players like Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner, Brad Mehldau, Avishai Cohen, and probably my favorite modern trio, Medeski Martin & Wood. (MMW)

MMW has been classified by some as a "jam band" but they really have a wide range of styles and influences, including avant-garde jazz, post-bop experimentalism, funk and instrumental hiphop. Highly recommended!

Incidentally, I have a jazz blog at -- though it is mostly aimed at the jazz performer, some articles may be of interest.

Thanks again for the post!

Thanks for the comment, Jonah... Credit where credit is due!

I love jazz :: big fan of Miles Davis / Christoph Merki / Nina Simone / Donald Byrd / Herbie Hancock / Manivishu Orchestra

Will check out MMW - heard a lot about them but never checked them out.

I like a lot of what could be called "nujazz" such as 4hero / faze action / jaga jazzist / jazzanova / koop / nathan haines

I just like great music.
