Coma World is a new collaboration between Maxwell Hallett, a.k.a. Betamax known from The Comet Is Coming/Soccer96 and Pete Bennie from Speaker’s Corner Quartet, bringing together their potent chemistry in an intoxifying material documented on the album released via Byrd Out earlier this year.
Betamax drives the duo with his signature ‘rhythmadelic’ drum rapture as Pete elegantly pummels bass tones into an assortment of wonky pockets. Both layer on a blanket of electronic dark matter to create a sonic womb-like world laid out for the brave listener to explore. This is dub and jazz reduced to the raw fundamentals of experimentation, trance and spontaneity. Inspired by a friend’s recollections of being in a coma, the duo delve through the mysteries of consciousness and return with a striking array of colourful sound artefacts. The two artists sling their dirty funk through cold clouds of darkness leaving psychedelic trails of bleeping fractal spillage.
Yiğit Bülbül, who released his debut LP ‘Y Bülbül – Fever’ last year will be playing records before and after the gig!
“A potent mix of dark grooves, trembling bass lines, and electronic rumblings question the concept of reality” – Jazz Revelations
