A late shout for one of the jazz releases of the year comes from Village Of The Sun and the brilliant duo, Binker & Moses.
Village Of The Sun is a collaboration between UK jazz virtuosos Binker Golding & Moses Boyd and electronic music legend Simon Ratcliffe of Basement Jaxx. In 2020, they released a debut project that got acclaim from jazz radio staples like BBC 6 Music, Worldwide FM and NTS - and now they're back with new single Tigris.
Picking up from where they left off, gentle percussion from Moses Boyd and that raw emotion from Binker Golding's saxophone are in unison - as those familiar with the duo's Feeding The Machine album will already know all about.
However the meeting of electronic ambience and the jazz duo's improvisation, leads to something new, with Simon Ratcliffe's synths helping to build further tension and textures into a Tigris, another release from the Village Of The Sun that reveals more and more with each listen.
