Mark Ernestus presents Jeri-Jeri with Mbene Diatta Seck
Xale

Wow this is wicked, I'm trying out the dub version first. He's working with some Senegalese musicians here is Mr. E and the furious polyrhythms are undercut with some real rugged organic woody sounding bass grooves, the dubbed-out snippets of vocal mantra beautifully riding the relentless hypnotic percussive groove. The original seems...view item »

Mark Ernestus meets BBC
Mark Ernestus Meets BBC / Version

I think I prefer the more abstracted 'version' side of this. It does away with the maddening click/clock metronome beat of the 'A' side which gradually becomes, frankly, more annoying than someone dumping a huge skipful of old lead, sewage and concrete in your garden and driving off laughing. What's left is a str...view item »

Rhythm & Sound
The Versions

The Versions is an album of, er, versions, that correspond to the latest vocal Rhythm & Sound album. Rhythm & Sound might have a generic-sounding name, but when you know the personnel involved (Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus!) you realise that this is stuff...view item »
