XAVER FISCHER TRIO Dumdidum


Originally a 90s retro loungey dude who played keys for the likes of Stereolab, Xaver Fischer and his trio became leading lights on the nu-jazz scene. Now he's back with two new thirds and the same old values. Recorded in two days and strictly adhering to his 'no studio trickery and no more than three takes' philosophy, "Dumdidum" is an impressive work indeed. Highlights include the trancey breakbeat-isms of "Concerto For Square Wave", the self-descriptive "Afrobeat GTI" and the has-to-be-heard-to-be-believed "Old Man Guetta" which, yes you've guessed it, fuses David Guetta production and trad jazz!
