Twinset - Mystical Soul

LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa present: Twinset - Mystical Soul

In store now.

Twinset are delighted to announce the release of their fourth album, Mystical Soul, with LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa. Following the success of 2002 album It's A Summer Feeling, which saw them gaining a nomination for Best Jazz Album at the New Zealand Music Awards 2003, the Wellington three-piece began work on Mystical Soul in February 2003.

Recorded at 'The Surgery' in Newtown, Wellington, organist Chris Yeabsley, twin brother Dan Yeabsley on sax/flute and Paul Hoskin on drums present vocal collaborations with such luminaries of the Wellington massive as Lotus, The Black Seeds frontman Barnaby Weir and Dallas of Fat Freddy's Drop fame. Lotus' unassuming vocal appears on 'Before Me', while Barnaby's vocal offering is a gently funky remake of Bobby Hebb's 'Sunny'. Dallas' luscious tones serve to further enhance an already 'Sweet Thing'.

With engineering by Dr Lee Prebble (The Black Seeds/Phoenix Foundation), and Mu of Fat Freddy's Drop providing his magic touch on mixing and mastering duties, Mystical Soul lacks for nothing, and is a smooth taste of the popsicle-chill dub-tinged jazz flavour that is Twinset. How would we describe it? Wide groove new jazzŠ

With smooth grooves, strong leadlines and a palpably warm texture, Mystical Soul is a heady concoction of lounge and jazz styles, gently infused with dub and soul to create an album of essential urban listening.
