krautfuzz – fuzzkraut 15

Now available at MWM bandcamp:

Imari KokuboDirk Dresselhaus, and Derek Shirley started out playing free improvisations at the ZONE studio in November 2022. fuzzkraut 15 is their 15th session and second krautfuzz release via MirrorWorldMusic.

The agenda is to boil down stylistic concepts to their essence by playing adventurous, energetic, and time-transcending music without a safety net while giving some extra attention to communication in-between each other as well as to the individual subconsciousness.

krautfuzz is embossed by an angular-futuristic tension, spanning from fuzzed-out neo-psych-rock to abstract, heavily processed minimalism, and is open at the fringes, which, in the case of fuzzkraut 15means the addition of stream of consciousness poetry and overdubs of wind instruments to sport traces of some Sun Ra Arkestra-inspired free jazz vibe within its noisy textures.

Their LIVE PREMIERE in Berlin in autumn 2023 was sold out and celebrated frenetically. It consisted of 2 live sets; the 1st set they played as a trio, and for the 2nd set they invited surprise guest Murat Ertel (of Baba Zula), which inspired the general modus operandi for live shows in the future:

First set as a trio, and after a short break, a second set with surprise guests.

Release concert: 23. March 2024 – 20/21CET – Urban Spree, Berlin

krautfuzz + iLan (live video) + special guest: André Vida
