Pulling from the influence of grime, hip-hop, electronic music, blog culture and jazz, Binker and Moses are among the pacesetters of the London based jazz renaissance happening now. ‘Alive In The East?’, their new live album slotted to drop this upcoming June, captures the drummer and sax player in full “shamanic” spiritual free jazz mode. The release features guest appearances from Evan Parker, Byron Wallen, Tori Handsley and Yussef Dayes. Children of the Ultra Blacks, a hypnotic testament to their inimitable passion for exploration, tops our playlist.
