Breakbeat Jazz Single Released Through Creative Commons
File under: Electronic Breakbeat Jazz
The latest single from Revolution Void, Effects of Elevation, has been released under a Creative Commons license granting free online distribution.
The 3-song single features an original track by Revolution Void along with remixes by Citizen Prime and Sevenless.
Citizen Prime's remix combines a house groove with piano and bass solos on top. The airtight 4-to-the-floor rhythm propels the song as it progresses through solos, breakdowns and builds.
The Sevenless remix incorporates IDM, glitch and industrial genres, while retaining a distinctive sound. The remix begins slowly, eventually building into epic proportions with a guitar-laden breakbeat chorus.
Combining electronic breaks with jazz improvisation, Effects of Elevation is a unique example of the interesection where modern jazz and modern electronic music meet.
The release features guest musician Matthew Garrison on bass. Matt is known for his work with Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul and others. Additionally, track 3 features vocal samples by Ill-esha, known for her work as both a DJ and vocalist.
It is available for full download as variable-bitrate MP3 from the Revolution Void homepage, as well as OurMedia and the Internet Archive.
