Burnt Friedman & Jaki Liebezeit - Secret Rhythms 2

From Germany, more solid proofs that most of the times "less is more". Burnt Friedman has been responsible for essential music for over a decade, using multiple identities in electronic music projects such as Drome, Nonplace Urban Field, Flanger or Nine Horses, always creating sonic poems with minimum resources. Jaki Liebezeit is the former drummer of the legendary group Can and that's enough said. So it comes as no surprise that the second volume of this project is nothing short of a paradigm in a fluid, transparent and minimalistic language. Jazz, dub, electronic programming and live instruments are used to create smooth aural structures that seem so simple and yet, hide hypnotic powers.
