Press:

TWISTED SOUL: THE DAY GOES EP

“The music you're about to hear is very, very, good. This album of wonderful improvised jazz infused with dub, ambient and electronic flourishes showcases a master at his craft. The trio sounds naturally relaxed leaving plenty of room for all the players to manoeuvre within the dark and hypnotic textures. The sound is raw, intimate and expansive, with warm organic grooves meeting electronic touches and dubby embellishments. This album is solid from start to finish.”


 

THE SLOW MUSIC MOVEMENT: Senhora Vida ft Munir Hossn

“This is the first taste of the new project from Yusuf Ahmed & Munir Hossn & it's a multi-culturally minded, Afro Brazilian, psyche tinged gem. I can only hope there is more to come from this London based outfit.”

MUSIC IS MY SANCTUARY: Senhora Vida ft Munir Hossn

"Senhora Vida is a joyous homage to Iemanja through the lens of Afro Brazilian culture."

TWISTED SOUL MUSIC: Water & Fire ft Irini Arabatzi

“Delicate and subtle, Water and Fire yields tender and bold melodies, weaved together by a meandering groove and splashes of nostalgia. A fantastic culmination of sophisticated pop and soul. The dreamy soundscape of laid-back guitar, subtle percussion and twinkling electronics paired with Arabatzi delicate but confident vocal that holds the track together is the perfect combination.”

FRESH ON THE NET: Senhora Vida ft Munir Hossn


"Senhora Vida was leading the vote count for most of the weekend, and it’s not hard to see why, it’s a totally chilled out composition with the percussion being the star of the show, and indeed the drums are played to perfection here by Yusuf, the layering and overlapping of the beats is quite inspired, Munir Hossn’s bass fights beautifully with his own vocal, with the guitar providing a rhythm of its own. It’s a complex piece of work, so let’s try not to dissect too much and just lie back, relax and enjoy. Raised in London, with his roots in Italy and Pakistan, Yusuf Ahmed is a drummer producer who doesn’t tie himself to any particular style, preferring instead for his music to express itself. He keeps himself busy with several projects and collaborations."
