Rodinia – Drumside Dreamside
Rodinia is the latest project from JJ Whitefield, the man behind Poets Of Rhythm, Whitefield Brothers and Karl Hector & The Malcouns.
This time round Whitefield has taken inspiration from Krautrock and the more experimental side of post-hip hop funk.
Whitefield,along with collaborator, saxophonist and keyboardist Johannes
Schleiermacher have created an ambient, drum filled suite of music covering two sides of an album.
“all our vintage synths triggering everying with a vintage Korg rhythm box, absorbing some mind altering substances and jamming out.” is how the two put it themselves.
This is a definite must for all fans of Whitefields previous projects, even if it is on the more experimental side of things, there is still plenty of funk and heavy beats in the mix.
But it now from Now Again Records.
