I mixed Deja Voodoo earlier this year and I’m excited for this Ropeadope release to reach your earholes! The label says it best:
The sax man with eclectic plans is back! Avram Fefer plays with the most unique of ensembles, and after delivering his Big Picture Holiday release he has returned with a new project – Rivers On Mars. Avram has teamed up with Greg Tate (Burnt Sugar Arkestra, Black Rock Coalition), On Ka’a Davis (Sun Ra Arkestra), and Chris Eddleton (Red Baraat) to create an edgy and explorative abstract and gravity-free groove. Their new record, Deja Voodoo, is self described as ‘trance-inducing waves of interstellar melody; splashes of searing guitar and harmonic counterpoint; loops and sonic mayhem bubbling up spontaneously via laptop surging above a deep riverbed of rhythm liberated from the earthly traditions of jazz, funk, trip-hop, and afro-beat’. This is a journey to the inner and outer regions, folks.
Go get this one!
