Mutations the second work of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble from 2009.
Not existing anymore since 2012 The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble now finally makes all long-time sold out releases available again on. The series of reissues starts with their genre-determining second output Mutations. An act combining profound musical sensibilities, deeply emotional harmonies and an acute ear for genre inter-breeding,
The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble placed itself and the confluent of dusty, gritty jazz and low-end doom-laden drones, and came up with a sound which is at the same time warm and dark, brooding and misty, cinematic and dynamic. The ensemble's music - mournful, mercurial and thoroughly spooked - has the lingering impact of the silent movies (Metropolis, Nosferatu) that served as their initial inspiration. (The Wire). The production is that much more spooky, rich, and atmospheric, and the song structure that much more purposeful and realized. It seems they have struck a perfect symmetry in the studio as a group, feeding off one another and performing cohesively. There is not a wasted moment to be heard.
Together with Bohren und der Club of Gore and The Dale Cooper Quartet, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble through the years have succeeded in creating a brand new genre of music. Time to get absorbed again by this unique and fresh sound.
