phuse - mingus lingers

band: phuse
album: mingus lingers
genre: funk, jazz
country: ireland
year: 2008

Fronted by Dubliner Gavin Lockhart, Phuse is a collective of musicians where each performer effortlessly blends a myriad of styles - jazz, hip-hop, funk, electronica, ambient, cinematic backdrops and break-beats into a deep and intense soundscape.

This sound is created by the band's integration of standard acoustic instruments such as double bass, drums, saxophone and piano with electric guitars, samplers and a host of other electronic compositional tools.

this album has been playing pretty much every other hour in my apartment for the last week. beautiful mix of styles; never redundant, never boring.
