The third release from Gratone is a live remix work featuring long-time collaborators and veterans Audun Kleive on percussion and Jan Bang on live sampling. It sees the young Norwegian label explore the spaces between between jazz and the dancefloor. Kleive and Bang 'tap into something innate that moves perpendicular to the techno ethos'. A side cuts "Azmari Woman" and "Azmari Beat" respectively are jagged and angular perspectives of afrobeat. On the flip, "Model Kit" is a disjointed pattern that gets properly off the grid in the vein of Mark Fell's SND project, while "Sister Silver" explores the A side's Afro rhythms in a less interrupted fashion but getting much more multitimbral in the process.
