XP-2, the latest experimental project from flautist Malik Mazzadri, is a collection of musical entities built around formal constraints which the artists transcend as they feel inspired. Featuring nine artists, including DJ Rebel and Steve Coleman, the album opens with up tempo concentric circles, allowing the musicians to follow one another, and ends in a dazzling colourful fantasia. Exceptional creativity not confined to a single approach. A captivating experience.
Forthcoming release in october 2007 (Label Bleu)
