‘On The Edge Of Forever’ - contains all the essential blends of artistic ‘strangeness’ of style. “The production. Dusty… Hard jazz, deep funk sounds, but taken so far and so deep from the source as to be absorbed and transformed. From some alternate reality where Dolphy and Mingus invented the MPC and jazz never ended, kept on going.”(Elmattic)
OUTSIDE THE HEARD - April 2014 (For US based Indie Retail)
On The Edge Of Forever contains all the essential blends of artistic ‘strangeness’ of style. The production: Dusty, intricate loops and samples. Hard jazz, deep funk sounds, but taken so far and so deep from the source as to be absorbed and transformed... Like some alternate reality where Dolphy and Mingus invented the MPC and jazz never ended. But who is Bil Basmala? It’s hard to say… Information is scant. But that’s what the crate diggers love – scarcity… And records like On The Edge Of Forever don’t come along very often. It might as well been made by a ghost whose only tether to our corporeal world is the invention of ambient neo soul. For fans of DJ Shadow, Dilla, Mushroom Jazz, and Steely Dan. You need this.
