This group shows great creativity and a flair for the newness of electro-techno-polyrhythm.
Mixing ultra- modern techniques of the latest software, processors, loops and samples with traditional live instruments; bass, drums and trumpet, creates a feel of being in the future now.
Note:Included in this array of sounds is the theramin a box looking instrument with two antennas, played without being touched. One antenna controls pitch; the other controls volume. This instrument has taken on a life of its own.
The Softest Touchopens with Ripe Watermelon commanding attention to its insistent rhythm
Hoelsshows off a deep bass, said to be reminiscent of Marcus Miller’s work with Miles.
The group even introduces the sounds of a Speak and Spell to their mix.
Someone into new-age, hypermodern, sounds, dubs and electronics will certainly find their dreams come true with this album.
More than music, The Softest Touch is a state of mind.
