Forthcoming on Black Gravity Rhythms Vol.001 – Project presented by AliA & DTM Funk
“Fernweh” is about reminiscing the places you visited and are yet to explore. It started out as a simple chord progression that was stuck in Cheri Moya’s head and expanded into this modal meditative instrumental piece.Buy on Bandcamp
About the project
‘Black Gravity’ refers to the Herbie Hancock and A Guy Called Gerald collaboration from 2001. According to DTM Funk, this track is “the perfect example of two different grooves coming together in perfect harmony”. The result shows that groovy soul and alternative electronica go hand in hand. This powerful fusion of influences gave rise to a monthly show on Brussels’ online station Kiosk Radio. A few months later, Black Gravity Rhythms now becomes a compilation series around an ever-evolving sound that winks to the past while firmly looking towards the future.
In each new volume of the series, DTM Funk will collaborate with another befriended DJ, assembling a varied collection of productions representing the sound of the guest selector. For the first edition, we look to AliA, probably Belgium’s most skilled sound digger of her generation. Still only 21-year-old, she is known for her eclectic style, impeccable skills and versatile selection that ranges from broken beats to bossa nova and from alternative techno to off-beat belters.
