While waiting for second studio album “Afterglow” to drop on September 9th on CD and September 23rd on digital download via Splash Blue Records, London-based jazz-funk four piece Resolution 88 have just launched first single “Raios Do Sol” (sun beams) and put it online for FREE DOWNLOAD!
This track captures the Brazilian background of bassist Tiago Coimbra and also pays homage to some of the band’s influences, including Azymuth, Cesar Camargo Mariano and Banda Black Rio. Close your eyes and let the samba rhythms of this track transport you to Sugarloaf Mountain, looking down over Copacabana beach on a late afternoon as the rays from the setting sun (the shimmering synthesizer) bounce and refract off the sea.
“Afterglow” was mastered by Bob Power (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, The Roots etc) in NY and mixed by Dan ‘JD73’ Goldman (Morcheeba). It’s a modern, broken beat take on jazz funk music with a spacey, cinematic soundscape inhabited by silky Fender Rhodes, shimmering analogue synthesizers, gritty fuzz wah clavinet and hypnotic tape delay.
