A contemporary music carav an – albeit one that mov es at the speed of sound! Produced by Dav id Husser. Featuring Rachid Taha, Rodolphe Burger, Spex MC and Rocky Singh (ex members of Asian Dub Foundation). If you'v e nev er regarded the oud - the fretless lute at the core of so much traditional Arabic music - as a rock 'n'roll instrument, then you'v e clearly nev er heard Speed Carav an or the frenetic and joy ous play ing of Mehdi Haddab. Once part of Parisian-based global electronica trio Ekov a, Mehdi then formed the experimental oud duo DuOud with Jean-Pierre Smadja. Now Speed Carav an, Mehdi is joined by bassist Pascal T eillet, former Ek ov a electronic beat mistress Hermione Frank , and Mohamed Bouamar on percussion and v ocals. Mehdi is well k nown as both a v irtuoso play er of the classical oud, and for his pioneering musical projects, break ing into the rock world armed with an electric oud. Two remixes add the final touches. Sidestepper, the British producer and lov er of Colombian rhy thms, has beautifully rework ed “Daddy Lolo” while Malian Mo DJ has work ed on “Aissa Wah”. Speed Carav an create music that references The Cure and The Chemical Brothers alongside Algerian rai and other Arabic influences in a glorious collision of global sounds and sty les. To call Mehdi Haddab the Jimi Hendrix of the electric oud would, of course, be a hopeless cliché. But it's not that far from the truth!

Yaron Herman and his trio tak e us on another journey through jazz, pop and improv isation successfully re-inv enting genres and offering further ev idence that Yaron’s determination to re-write the rulebook s is not only credible but v ery successful. Yaron Herman and his trio are one of the latest groundbreaking jazz acts who are a far cry from jazz convention. In a similar vein to the Neil Cowley Trio, Yaron Herman are a group who stray far from cliché and attract fans out-with the jazz mainstream. Recent performance at the Barbican highlighted the sense of playfullness seeing the 3 piece reinterpret hits from the likes of Bj ork, Britney Spears and Scriabin. Israeli-born but resident in France, serial award-winner Yaron Herman and his trio have taken the European jazz scene by storm, touring intensively across the continent and further afield. Muse is the fourth album and the second to feature his trio - previous albums featuring duo and solo performances. Born in 1981, Herman was a relative late-comer to the piano, he started to play relatively late as a teenager, but after only a few years he moved to Boston to study at Berklee. He didn’t stay long, but instead moved to Paris where he immersed himself in the vibrant French jazz scene On Muse, the three partners, now closer than ever after an intensive period touring, take us on another journey through jazz, pop and improvisation. There are less pop covers than his last album, though there is a powerful re-working of Bjork’s I sobel alongside Dizzy Gillespie’s Con Alma and music from Jewish songwriters Alexander Argov and Naomi Shemer.

SECOND ALBUM FROM THE ACCLAIMED PARTNERSHIP OF STEVEN WILSON AND AVIV GEFFEN – NOW ON KSCOPE Over the past few years Steven Wilson’s Porcupine Tree have made the transition from a solo project to genuine international stars. Aviv Geffen is Israel’s leading counter culture rock musician. . In recent years Aviv has worked with various other artists including Elbow and Belle And Sebastian but it has been his partnership with Steven that has proved the most fertile. Aviv and Steven reunited in 2007 for this follow up to 2004’s hugely acclaimed debut. Recorded in Tel Aviv and London and produced and mixed by Steven Wilson, it continues and expands on the band's orchestrated melancholic rock sound, combining great hooks, sweeping strings, explosive guitars, and lush vocal harmonies. Tracks: Once / 1,000 People / Miss U / Christenings / This Killer / Epidemic / My Gift of Silence / Some Day / Where is My Love? / End of the World

In 1993, mastermind Hoest formed the band under the name Thule, releasing two demos; ‘Der Vinterstormene Raste’ in 1993 and 1994’s ‘Omfavnet Av Svarte Vinger’. Shortly afterwards, Thule became Taake (meaning ‘Fog’ in English), a name which better reflected the band’s music and the area where Hoest was from; the mountains of Bergen, Norway. The second album from Taake, ‘Over Bjoergvin Graater Himmerik (Heaven Cries over Bjoergvin)’, was released in 2002. Tracks: Vid I / Vid II / Vid III / Vid IV / Vid V / Vid VI / Vid VII
