Alaska - Jasheri // Zoranine
Released 14th April 2017
Black & Blue vinyl repress. The Drum & Bass and Downtempo 12” from Arctic Music.
Alaska’s 33rd vinyl release takes you on an escalating journey with its head-nodding breakbeats, layered pads, bass booms and chords. Violin, piano and Rhode keys lead the ascent into a passionate orchestral crescendo and Jasheri is born.
On the flipside Alaska flexes the film-score muscles and lowers the tempo to 85 bpm with the Arctic-sleeze score of Zoranine. Xylophone riffs, oboe effects, guitar stabs, flutes and vintage keys float over a funky breakbeat groove for a chillout masterpiece.
