|Drummer Malcolm Catto and bassist Jake Ferguson are the Heliocentrics' masterminds and producers, and guitarist Ade Owusu, percussionist Jack Yglesias and keyboardist Ollie Parfitt hold constant presence within this ever-evolving ensemble. They have been playing together for over a decade and their collective drive is to find an individual voice. The Heliocentrics search for it in an alternate galaxy where the orbits of funk, jazz, psychedelic, electronic, avant-garde and ''ethnic'' music all revolve around ''The One.'' Back at Now-Again with 13 Degrees of Reality, the Heliocentrics have returned to develop this epic vision of psychedelic funk, while exploring the possibilities created by their myriad influences: Latin, African, and more.|
This is the kind of music that jumps out and leaves an impression on you. Serious jams like ''Collateral Damage'' have the kind of strings, drums and swinging rhythms that you cannot resist. If you love jazz you will love this.
