A fascinating set of contemporary, freely improvised jazz, beautifully recorded in vintage style onto 180g vinyl...★★★★" - Jazz Journal

"It’s rare to find such raw and honest jazz concepts coming from the younger generation, but it’s clear these guys live this music" - Wax Poetics

"What Binker and Moses have effectively done it show what jazz can be in 2015....if you only buy one album this year, make sure it’s Dem Ones!" - Ran$om Note

"...an absolute must....★★★★ recommended" - Marlbank

For the album the pair performed in the live room at Mark Ronson’s Zelig Studio and recorded direct to Gearbox's vintage Studer 1/4" tape machine next door. With Charles Lloyd and John Coltrane as stylistic touchstones, along with modern influences, fuelling their fiery improvisations, Binker and Moses’ youthful energy and fresh ideas have been captured with authentic, old school warmth. 
 
Binker and Moses are tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd - two of the most exciting young jazz musicians on the thriving London jazz scene. Originally meeting through double bassist/educator Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors jazz development programme, they have played together in various large and small format groups including recording and touring extensively as members of Zara McFarlane’s band. 
 
Dem Ones is their debut recording as a duo, and has its roots in experiments between soundchecks and gigs while on the road with McFarlane. Over time these initial ideas and jams have become templates for improvisation, and with their echoes of late period Coltrane and Charles Lloyd, are as listenable and memorable as they are full of invention, passion and surprise.
 
All the tracks were performed in the live room at Mark Ronson’s Zelig Studio and recorded direct to Gearbox's vintage Studer 1/4" tape machine next door. The vinyl lacquers were cut directly from this original stereo master on Gearbox’s 1967 Haeco Scully lathe with Westrex RA1700 series amps, using a Westrex 3DIIA cutting head and Telefunken U73B tube limiter, Maselec master control and equalisation and Audio Note monitoring equipment.
