Village Live Records is one of the UK’s most prolific hip hop labels, with 2018 alone seeing releases from Klim Beats, Kuartz, Liphe, Robohands, Micall Parknsun & Mr Thing, Remulak, Gas-Lab, Cappo with Cyrus Malachi and Aver hit the shelves. The label changes lanes with their latest release from Berlin-based pianist Doron Segal, an album entitled The Addition Of Strangeness which explores contemporary jazz through seven original compositions, plus two covers (including Soundgarden‘s Black Hole Sun).
Bonafide is proud to present the first video from the album, Wrong Channels, filmed and edited by James Stevens.
Doron says: “Wrong Channels is about my attempt to find my right ‘output’ channel. I’m influenced by a lot of music, and sometimes I feel like it confuses me in terms of what I want to say in the piece that I compose. I wrote Wrong Channels in a few hours, and I really liked the idea of it. It was too short for me as a jazz composition, so I tried to continue it for months, knowing I would record my album soon and I had to get it finished. But… I didn’t like what I wrote. In the end, I choose to keep it as it is, and it’s one of my favourite tunes on the album, but it all started with me trying to force this song into something it is not.” Doron is accompanied by Tom Berkmann on double bass with Daniel Dor on drums.
The album is released on vinyl, CD and digital on Friday 8th February 2019 – grab it over on their Bandcamp.
