Bits & Pieces - Mopti

Price: 15.99  EUR


The brand new album from Mopti featuring DJ Bendik Baksaas: uncompromising, unmissable!

On January 30th, 2015, Jazzland releases the second album from Mopti, and this time the group are taking things to a whole new level.

Bendik Baksaas, turntablist and laptop musician, demonstrated through remixes of Mopti's album "Logic" that a collaboration might just be a great idea … In summer 2014, Mopti & Bendik Baksaas became a living reality at the Molde Jazz Festival. With Baksaas fully integrated into the band, they continued to explore the limitless possibilities the new combo had to offer, gradually mapping out a whole new world of their own.

"Bits & Pieces" is an avant-garde album where the band have begun by challenging themselves, first and foremost, in the combination of contemporary jazz and experimental hip-hop, and this challenge is passed on to the listener in equal measure, a whole world of groove, mayhem, freedom, funk, soul, jazz, blinding lights and light-swallowing shadows to explore. There are moments of fanciful whimsy here, but also moments that feel downright dangerous. It's almost an album worth putting on safety gear before listening to!
