Daniel Schmitt Super space jazz with electronic production. First fill length album full of quality work by Emanative! Favorite track: Petite Planète.

Dr. Beaf Lush smooth jazz with a dominant foot in the cinematic space. I saw Jessica Lauren on keys and had to grab it and her influence is well heard. It's subtly very rhythmic and very sonic-ally textured with meticulous planning as if everything is exactly where it should be. Favorite track: Space In Veda.

"Nick Woodmansey is a British drummer/percussionist and producer. Emanative is his space-jazz project, and Space is the debut LP that recently dropped on Futuristica Music. There needs to be a fuss made about Emanative and this LP, and I’m gonna tell you why.

There are a group of contemporary producers who are switching things on their head – whether it be a conscious thing or not, it’s happening, and I like it. I’m talking about modern sounds and techniques influencing old – so where as usually it’s things like jazz and funk influencing hip-hop, these guys are doing it the other way round. Eric Lau is producing soul music with hip-hop foundations, 2tall is exploring multiple genres from his roots as a scratch DJ, Dusty is making jazz music with a breakbeat/nu-jazz edge, and then we have Emanative. Firstly, this 14 track LP is simply beautiful – there’s just no escaping that notion, it really is incredible. It’s jazz with a hip-hop inspiration, but in the most subtle of ways – think of Madlib producing a Sun Ra album and you might be getting closer. But loose comparisons aside, Emanative stands alone with its unique execution and aural delivery. Any regular reader will know I’m extremely fond of ‘complete’ sounding albums that take the listener on a journey, and Space does this more so than any other new album I’ve heard this year."
