Musical genius Jason Miles
is always on the quest to new soundshores. He met DJ Logic at the
Moogfest in October 2006. Miles remembers: "I was having a bad week
and then he called me and said ‘do you want to play a show at the Blue
Note together?’ I said ‘sure, when?’ He said ‘tonight’ – so we did a
show starting at 1 AM, which was great." Next in row was a concert of
both in Marrakech, where they developed the idea of their debut album
Global Noize (2008).
Miles shares, “We went through life-altering experiences. It was so
new to us - mysterious, crazy and another view of the world. We both
knew we had to make this project happen. The picture on the CD cover
of the both of us with the camel in the desert says it all!”
The duo is joined by female singer Falu. Hailing from Bombay she is
known by her genre-defining hybrid "Indie Hindi" musical style. Since
2008 they are touring together and Falu also contributed three
standout tracks to their self-titled album released in Spring 2008.
Their sophomore album, A Prayer for the Planet is scheduled for
release on August 23, 2011 via Lightyear/EMI. The album will be
released June 11, 2011 in Europe on Art of Groove Records/MIG.
A Prayer For The Planet combines the intention to support the
efforts for a better world with the sultry world music of Global Noize
featuring the erotic vocals of Bombay native singer Falu. Somehow we
are going back to the time of Woodstock people.
The turntable driven 21st Century Preacherman whips the
listeners through a mélange of contemporary jazz and lounge. When the
hectic traffic of the rush hour meets the lotus flower floating in the
morning light, then you might be in the city of the Japanese Capital.
Tokyo Sunrise musically encompasses the mood of time, location
Dive deeper into the Indian flavored music with Charismalove.
Take a dose of Lee Oskar spirited harmonica, add some Daburka drumming
and Falu's bewitching vocals, then you experience Viva La Femme,
an ode to the fair sex. Walking On Air offers some lifted
Experimental in sound Global Noize sets with Rios (A Riot In Outer Space)
another example for innovative ways to heat your musical interest.
The late Joe Zawinul would be proud about it. Hip Hop for the Indian
market? Wanna B With U combines both elements to a conjuring
brew. Natuerza E Paz (Nature And Peace) is a short journey into
Brazilian music reminding of Jason Miles' fantastic album Brazilian
Nights. The album fades out with the contemplative jazz fusion
piece Cosmic Hug.
A Prayer for the Planet is not a party album. Beyond the usual
music streams Global Noize opens new ways to fascinating sound
experiences. This music demands your complete attention.
