taken from Preface EP (Ho Tep Records)
Brand new project launching on Ho Tep records from the mysterious Dirg Gerner which features the incredible talents of Rahel, Fatima and Olmino. Drawing on soul, jazz, latin, hip hop and beyond the ep is a deep and colorfully layered affair, organic and warm, it displays an array of instruments and styles. Like a handcrafted sculpture, it’s roots float in antiquity, classy and progressive whilst eternally indebted to the greats that came before.
Lead track ‘My Queen’ is a dusty and delicate, blue eyed soul ode, sung by the man himself, whilst Loose Lights draws on latin and folk influences, heavy on the percussion this time enlisting the incredible vocal talents of rahel. Not to be confused with the flute arrangements, rahel’s faultless and beautiful performance elevates Loose Lights to levels far beyond the clouds.
