FARAJI HERITAGE EXPERIMENT


After a confidential bandcamp demo named A/R/T in 2012, this middle east composer brings a new project, which consists of a fusion of jazz-funk, abstract hip hop and electronica, he mixes all his influences with future beats and vintage electronic sounds.

Hussein Ibn Faraji birthed through the discovery of his grand-father's name not being Arabic but Swahili, he was inspired to bring together musicians with various backgrounds and skills (dj's, beatmaker, singers, pianists, drummers etc.) and have them use swahili nicknames, the same way Herbie Hancock and other jazzmen did back in the '70s.

Bio
What does the Iberian Lynx, the Siberian Tiger, the Sea Otter and producers like Raez got in common? The world needs more of them.
Raez is the type of producer that does his own thing and, therefore, has his own distinctive sound.
Everything began during his teenage years, listening to Rap and R&B, gathering its first ideas with closer friends. Soon after, he became a producer and started collaborating with other artists across Portugal. In the last few years, this Oporto based producer started conquering the world through his home studio. First came a collaboration in the Roy Ayers Project Compilation and many others are being released since then, having already collaborated with artists all over the 5 continents. Raez has styles upon styles upon styles, but no matter what he’s crafting, you can hear his signature.

About
After proving his flair for flipping soul samples into a laidback hip hop groove on his stand-out beat submissions for the prestigious Roy Ayers Project, Portugal’s Raez returns with a full-length album of original productions for the Cosmonostro family. Think throwback neo-soul with future sensibilities.
From the straight-up boom bap of Siincere’s ‘The Ave’ to the bruk-out vibes of Nongoma’s dancefloor shuffler ‘Desire’, Raez turns everything he touches into soul-drenched gold. Employing the talents of some killer female vocalists on cuts such as ‘With You’ and ‘You Make Me Wonder’, Raez manages to capture the flavours you might hear on a Brand New Heavies or Erykah Badu record, with a style and swing that still sounds fresh and unique.

PACIFIC SHORE

Bio
[US] Pacific Shore is an audiovisual project created by Parisian artists Stanley Bloom & Romain Prêto. Born in 2012 after a Californian road trip, the duo’s first eponymous album illustrates a journey through their primary musical influences of funk, soul, hip-hop, and jazz...Along the way, the duo meets Sarah Linhares, the Canadian-Portuguese singer who contributed to the success of their first videoclip and single "Road 1". After bonding over this first experience, they decided to join the diva on Madeira Island in 2014 to work on their second album "Beyond the Mist”, which was released on France’s Cosmonostro record label. This second project explores the poetic relationship between humans and nature, and is accompanied by a short film and an interactive website. Following this release, the group’s musical evolution includes the integration of Sarah as a member of the band, and a third EP, ‘No Distance Between Us’ that is boldly tinged by a melancholic Soul Jazz set up and will be dropping on April 2015 on Cosmonostro. In the studio, as well as on stage, live bass and keys, drum machines, electronic samples, and voice give the trio a skilled musical blend that proves electronic music can be organic, warm and alive

[FR] Pacific Shore est un projet audiovisuel parisien créé par les artistes Mike Ro Wave et Stanley Bloom. Né en 2012 sous l'impulsion d'un road trip en Californie, le premier album éponyme illustre ce voyage à travers leurs premiers amours : funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz... Sur leur chemin, le duo rencontre la chanteuse canado-portugaise Sarah Linhares, qui contribue au succès du sensuel clip "Road 1". Fort de cette première expérience, ils retrouvent la diva sur l'île de Madère en 2014 pour créer leur second album "Beyond The Mist", sous l'écurie Cosmonostro. Accompagné d'un court-métrage et d'un site web interactif, l'histoire raconte un rite initiatique sur les traces de la nature humaine. Cette nouvelle collaboration audacieusement tintée d'un mélancolique soul-jazz marque l'évolution du groupe avec l'intégration de Sarah. En studio comme sur scène, machines, instruments, et voix consentent au trio un subtil métissage et démontre que la musique électronique peut être organique, chaleureuse et vivante.

About
Parisian duo Pacific Shore land on Cosmonostro with their first full-length ‘Beyond The Mist’ – twelve blissful cuts perfect for the summer months ahead.
From the sultry soul of ‘Street Confusion’ to the hypnotic head-nod of ‘A Normal Way’, Pacific Shore prove their flair for finding the groove, crafting organic jams that ooze soul, with real attention to detail when it comes to production values. The collaborations are on point here too, with Sarah Linhares providing gorgeous vocals akin to the likes of Erykah Badu, & Moka Only laying down some poetic truths that perfectly complement the hip-hop flavours found throughout. ‘Lost In Love’ breathes new life into a much-covered soul classic, whilst ‘Atlantic Island’ marries the most cosmic of beats with a sax solo that’ll make you melt.
Above all ‘Beyond The Mist’ proves that electronic music can be full of life, and maybe, just maybe, machines do have souls after all.

Press
The band returns with a stellar compilation of haunting melodies rooted in futuristic, infectious grooves. “Labyrinthe” emerges from the mist as a tried and true standout that packs a post-boom bap sensibility and finds Sarah Linhares shining atop the enveloping composition from Pacific Shore. Her vocal at once lilting, soothing and bright, Linhares captures the same combination of saccharine and cool that catapulted Vinia Mojica to cult status as one of the most sought after vocalists to emerge from the golden era of 90′s hip-hop. -Okayplayer
The track “Street Confusion” immediatly won our hearts upon first listen with Sarah providing lovely Badu-esque vocals on a production that’s sticky and sweaty like a humid summer night. -Moovmnt
Street Confusion is a chilling groove mastered by expert hands (Kapak) and sublimated by Sarah Linhares’ angelic voice. -YMT
Smooth track -BDTB
