"First studio album of the notorious trio. Trance-inducing percussion masterpiece!
Ecopack | Strictly limited to 500 copies | Original artwork by artists Nadine Hilbert & Gast Bouschet." [label info]


"By now the collaboration between the Polish duo Hati (being Rafal Iwanski and Rafal Kotacki) and US percussion player Z'EV might be called ongoing. In 2006 and 2011 they already released work together and here is a new album, recorded live in the studio in 2011 in a single day and mixed by Bartek Jaworski a year later. In many of his collaborations Z'EV brings an electronic drum set, because he has a hard time sounding his metal when it comes to playing with people using electronics. But in Hati he finds partners that match that metallic, acoustic playing that Z'EV does, as that's what they do too. This is the kind of music that sounds like being present at some obscure ritual, with the the rattling of percussion, the slow deep beat of mother bass drum and the overtones created by rubbing percussive bits against each other. What kind of ritual this is, we don't know. A call for prayer, some mysterious rite de passage? I don't know. Probably it's more one of those kind of releases that are mysterious and you a free to use it to what ever end you want. Music that is all about meditation I guess, even when it sometimes seems a bit too hectic to be fully meditative. Something for the late night service. Very nice for sure." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
