The Comet Is Coming – Channel The Spirits (The Leaf Label)
Comprised of members of Soccer96 and Sons Of Kemet, The Comet pick up from where the great Sun-Ra left off, adding smouldering electronics to a heady mix of afrobeat and experimental jazz.
While the themes might be intergalactic, the groove is definitely rooted to the dancefloor, as shown on tracks like Star Furnace and Neon Baby.
‘Channel The Spirits’ is particularly suited to the album format as a round trip through the cosmos with a clearly defined start and end. Alpha and Omega.
As such it has been recognised by The Mercury Prize committee with a nomination for best album of 2016. We are very proud to have contributed.
