Mood Matters is a defining illustration of Dusty‘s musical world. Several years after his successful debut album Keep It Raw, the Jazz & Milk label founder brings together his favorite genres: Jazz, Funk, Soul, Afrobeat, Latin, percussive Beats and Deep House rhythms, while seeking a natural balance between acoustic, electronic and traditional sounds through the prism of a club-music oriented approach.
This fusion is brilliantly demonstrated on the title track Mood Matters which meshes forward-driven house beats with organic instrumentation – a big Jazz banger for the dancefloor! "Danse Macabre" features Dusty’s live band project Bad Jazz Troupe taking you on a wild trip between massive horn sections, heavy beats and deep basslines. You'll also find the strong Afro-Funk piece "Seventy Three" with its sweeping horns, charming Afrobeat guitars and mighty drumbeats and let’s not forget the soulful beauty of "Longing Lingers," featuring the heavenly voice of Carla Vallet ,as well as one of Munich’s most talented producers, Bartellow.
The vinyl release for the EP is March 18th with the digital release coming on April 1st.
