09 Apr GET YOUR EARS VACCINATED
With an EP titled “Antikoerper” (that is: antibody) it stands to reason we’re dealing with a lockdown record here. And Marian Tone will happily admit, it is exactly that.
Yet, it goes way beyond a killing-boredom-and-drowning-out-the-lockdown-blues-routine. It is in fact an accomplished contribution to a healing process we are collectively longing for. It masters unfavourable production conditions in a time of distance, to celebrate palpable unification within every of its bars.
He gathers six different artists from different stylistic backgrounds to add their specific spectral colour to a light of compassion and escapism that shines through each of the arrangements herein.
Through the effortlessly floating down beat jam “Go Out” for example. The Jazz laden and Soul-ful embrace “On Your Way”, the rhodes-meets-horn meditation of the fittingly titled “Vibes” or every other piece of the production with unmistakable what rather should be categorized a mini-album.
Tone approaches beatmaker attitude, educated in all consciousness-driven genres of the past five decades, yet he manages to keep the whole body of work sample-free, highlighting above all the vivid nature of collaboration and the overcoming of rough times in togetherness.
