Review

Wagon repair’s exciting improvised techno trio consisting of Mathew Jonson, Tyger Dhula and Danuel Tate COBBLESTONE JAZZ presents their first stunning longplayer further pressing their unique approach of fusing loose jazz and funk inflicted improv with techno tightness. 23 seconds lp is much different from the Cd Version and includes 3 complete new and exclusive Tracks that are not on the Cd :‘W’ is currently riding roughshod across the worlds finest dancefloors thanks to it’s appearance on the latest Cocoon compilation and here edited for the album. It’s perhaps the most uncharacteristic of the tunes on the album, drawing its influences from early trance. ‘What You´Want’ is a new track, recorded exclusively for the vinyl album. It was improvised and recorded live at UAF festival in Wiesen, Austria and ably demonstrates what this trio can create on the fly. Finally ‘Waiting Room’ paints a vast and unfamiliar landscape, sparsely populated with nebulous synth chords, beckoning vocoder traces and twin-peaked lounge tones. This LP version is also exclusive to the vinyl release. Otherwise all the albums strongest moments are included and that this is a strong album if their other was one needs no comment. Vinyl tracklisting~A1 - 23 Seconds,A2 - Slap the Back,B1 - PBD,B2 - Hired Touch, C1 - Lime in da Coconut (LP edit),C2 - Change Your Apesuit, D1 - Saturday Night, E1 - W (LP Edit), E2 - What You Want , F1 - Waiting Room (LP Version)

Giosuč Impellizzeri: “As promise on last summer, Wagon Repair release the first full-lenght by Cobblestone Jazz. It's not simply electronic music: from one side it take the inspirations from Detroit techno, from other size instead the inspirations coming from jazz and funk. All is combined with the feeling of live-acts with the filter open-closed and nice fx. All tracks have something of really interesting....but my favourite are "Slap The Bass", "W", "What You Want" and "Waiting Room". The wall between house and techno is totally break.”

Mike Shannon (Cynosure): “Finally the bomb drops with "23 seconds" These guys should have done an album years ago! But you can't rush perfection... The track "23 seconds" and the free form jam styles on "slap the back" are my favorites. I like a few others on the album too but I already mentioned those when they came out.”

Tom Clark (Highgrade): “a new experience in techno/house and jazz. ”
