After its annual summer break Correspodant around label-head Jennifer Cardini is back and starts the new season with a four tracker from Alan Dixon. His Edge of Forever EP comes with three originals and a Diskomiks from the maestro of the genre Prins Thomas ft. Bugge Wesseltoft for the title track. The rework from Thomas M. Hermansen, Prins Thomas’ real name, and pianist Bugge Wesseltoft is a groovey homage to summer season, to a better time, to hope and freedom, to music and the joy and the lust of life it evokes in people. Dramatically perfectly arranged the Diskomiks comes with a crunchy housey beat which is shortly enriched with a funky bass line melody that, in the course of the track, sets the base for the piano. The latter holds several tonal arrays switching between lower and higher ranges that are stretched over 10 minutes and 20 seconds. But those are a dramatically and musically a symphony over several octaves, split in multiple chapters and held together by the combined genius of these two artists.
Alan Dixon’s EP Edge of Forever will be released on Correspondant on September 25th, 2020.
