If the answer is yes , then prick up your ears ,especially if you’re avid jazz music lovers.
Five months ago we compiled a jazz selection entitled Lines , giving to our audience the opportunity to taste impressive tracks performed by incredible artists like Takuya Kuroda,Kendra Foster,Chantae Cann, Zara McFarlane and Relaen.
Well, Relaen‘s been on our radar for a while!
The german ensemble composed by drummer Leon Raum, bassist Leon Mache, saxophonist Marco Zügner and keyboardist and lead vocalist Olivia Wendlandt delighted our senses with a fresh and eclectic approach that reminds us innovative groups like Moonchild and Hiatus Kaiyote among others.
Last year indipendent label Wadada Records promoted the captivating opus by Relaen called Twines , followed in February by Twines Rework ( a project packed with revisitations handled by some serious beatmakers/producers such as Maloon The Boom and FloFilz).
Five days ago Olivia and co. , dropped anotha interesting EP , which proves a genuine talent which blooms brilliantly but briefly each year, delivering excellent music where jazz and nu-soul find a fertile breeding ground , fueled by live instrumentation and a voice which floats over the flawlessly soothing sounds.
Now open your mind to embrace the smooth sound of Beat #4
