Review

After a string of fresh remixes, including a great one for the Homewreckers here on Circus, Dave Aju offers this two-track side project treat while we await his next album. Picking up where he and The Invisible Art Trio left off, and adding another member, we are proud to present thèse unique cuts by Mr. Aju and his new Sol Percussion Ensemble.Using a single percussion instrument for each track, Aju and the ensemble bring a raw acoustic and upbeat live jam session vibe to the proceedings On “Vibra” the scene shifts to day, as an unabashedly sunny feeling builds up into a sort of loose latin jazz/house interpretation of Bob James’ “Spunky", filled with refreshingly fun instrumentation and vocal accompaniments- It’s that vibe! . “Flexa” starts off with a strong rhythm base, then takes off into the night as warm bass tones and vocal scat chants alternate over the course of this future-meets-primitive hypnotic groover. Both tracks reintroduce some playful sonic alternatives to today’s more discerning dance floors, and with the diverse background of Aju and his fellow SF Bay Area ensemble members, there’s plenty of soul and sol, just in time for Summer.
