‘Outlines’ is a snapshot of a new generation of producers mixing jazz, broken beat and house in exciting new ways. In the words of Cognitiva and ANMA label bosses Angelo and Piero, the hybrid compilation, “looks to not only the future, but also considers the past”.
The project is split into two parts. The first, focuses more on the jazz side of things, while in part two, more electronic influences seep in. Here, there are standout tracks from Footshooter featuring the vocal talents of 30/70’s Allysha Joy, Rhythm Section alumnus, Contours, and Roy Vision.
Our pick is Roy Vision’s ‘4411’, a house track that also draws on techno, jazz and UKG influences. The result is scintillating, a swinging groove replete with a spellbinding trumpet and keys breakdown in the middle.
‘Outlines’ is scheduled for release 2 April via Cognitiva and ANMA. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
