Maius Gjersø´s beautiful atmospheric jazz album, Yûgen, is out today!
Before Marius Gjersø started producing Yûgen, he traveled around Japan, where his encounter with Japanese culture, manners and aesthetics made a big impression. On his return to Norway, these impressions from the east remained very much alive for him, and became a major influence on the album. Nine soulful pieces of electroacoustic improvisation lay a perfect foundation for his exquisite trumpet lines. Combining improvisation with melodic, ambient and minimalistic electronics, he creates a musical space to really embrace. Yûgen is his debut album as a solo artist.
We are really looking forward to releasing Marius Gjersø´s debut album, Yûgen, this Friday!
Catch the live release concert Saturday at Sentralen!
Reconciliation is the second single from the album Years of Ambiguity by artist Kjetil Husebø. The track is a naturesque, ambient piece created by Kjetil and guitarist Eivind Aarset.
Following up their first single The Distance Between Us, and building up to the album release March 2023, the duo Django Novo and Tov Ramstad release Let Nothing Happen. Driven by the cello of Tov Ramstad and the voice of Django Novo the track is a lovely take on how to create modern rock and pop music.
"Some of the music is downbeat and explorative, while some tracks are so groovy it’s a direct invitation to the dancefloor."
"This certainly is some of the front men of the emerging jazz generation"
"It is cool and original all the way"
- Tor Hammerø, Nettavisen
Gabriela Garrubos beautiful first single, Stars, from her upcoming debut album is out today!
Gabriela Garrubo is a Norwegian-Brazilian jazz singer who studied at the Grieg Academy in Bergen. In 2021 and 2022, she has worked with producer Vetle Junker (Aurora) on her debut album "Rodando". Together they have found a quirky balance with a modern and fresh sound that at the same time gives retro associations. The music combines Scandinavian jazz and 80s Brazilian music. The lyrics, in both English and Portuguese, are about finding yourself and finding strength in a chaotic, unfair and hurtful, but also beautiful, world.
We're so excited about releasing Stars, the first single from Garbiela Garrubo's upcoming album, Rodando!
Her music is a thrilling mix combining elements from ScandiJazz and Brazilian popular music from the 80's, all framed in a modern sound produced by Vetle Junker.
