Earlier this year, drummer / composer / conceptualist Jaimeo Brown transformed pain and deliverance into art on his debut album, Transcendence. The project fused Gee’s Bend Quilters southern spirituals with North Indian music and various electronic elements, generally uncommon for an acoustic modern jazz record. Now, Brown takes his cross-genre project a step further with support from Grammy® winning Transcendence guitarist and producer Chris Sholar, techno producer Carl Craig and hip-hop producer Q-Tip (who refer to the track as “fantastic” and “dope,” respectively), on a radical recasting of “Mean World.” The remix also takes advantage of the artists featured in the original track: saxophonist JD Allen and vocals from the Gee’s Bend Quilters as well as Falu.

Mood Matters is a defining illustration of Dusty‘s musical world. Several years after his successful debut album “Keep It Raw,” the Jazz & Milk label founder brings together his favorite genres: Jazz, Funk, Soul, Afrobeat, Latin, percussive Beats and Deep House rhythms, while seeking a natural balance between acoustic, electronic and traditional sounds through the prism of a club-music oriented approach.

The title track meshes forward-driven house vibes with organic jazz instrumentation. Tracks like “It’s Time” or “Reascend” or bring together traditional live elements with electronic production, synthesizer sounds and heavy basslines.

The album features some of Munich’s finest musicians: members of the Bad Jazz Troupe, Jo Junghanss, and Beni Brachtel aka Bartellow. It also features collaborations with international artists, from the beautiful voice of Carla Vallet (France), to the amazing guitar rhythms of Kokolo’s Ray Lugo (NYC) and Flamenco musician El Pirata (Granada), to the rich production sounds of Sam Irl (Vienna), the hypnotic percussion of César Granados (Panamá City) and the sweeping horn sections of Todd Simon (Los Angeles).
