Àbáse – Skeme Goes All City

5abase

Budapest-born producer and keyboardist Szabolcs Bognar kicks off a new collaborative jazz project called Àbáse with the debut single entitled “Skeme Goes All City.”

Built on a bed of soothing, cinematic harmonies into which the different components flow, “Skeme Goes All City” plays on a repetitive melodic structure, while managing to continually evolve as the track progresses. It’s a dedication to the New York graffiti pioneer Skeme and the power of self expression in Hip Hop culture.

“We wrote and recorded the track in one improvised studio session in the oldschool way,” says Bognar when describing the track. “All the musicians in the same room, no headphones, no chance for correcting mistakes or editing. Raw.”

googoosh

Faegheh Atashin — better known by her stage name Googoosh or the “Persian Madonna” — is an Iranian singer and actress popular in the 50s, 60s and 70s. This pre-revolutionary Iran saw a renaissance of psychedelic rock. Googoosh dabbled in the genre with songs like “Talagh” (Divorce).

Iranian American producer, Nick AM, pays homage to Googoosh in his new remix of the track “I just dropped this funky edit of a classic 70’s song by the Persian Madonna, Googoosh,” explains the Brooklyn-based artist. “My friends have been urging me to tap into my heritage for a while now, and I finally succumbed.” I think I speak for everyone when I say that we are glad he did.

Astronauts, etc.

“Eye to Eye” tries stripping the “pop song” down to its essential parts and then reconstructing it as succinctly as possible. One vocal melody covering both verse and chorus. One guitar riff. One perpetual drum beat. Economy pop.
