Mixing old with new is probably the only constant between the old and new sound. '#1 January' combines downtempo, electronica with modal improvisation on the saxophone and trumpet (Jan Harbeck and Peter Marrott both collaborate on the record.) A bit like Miles Davis meets Bonobo. Or Nils Frahm & Trentemoller collaborating with Charlie Parker.
With a follow-up EP in the works, also signed to Freshly Squeezed, Modal Projekt begins a journey into new realms. Fusing jazz and electronic beats in ways that would make Giles Peterson proud.
