Ydivide album release today on Intakt Records

Ydivide is a quintet I’m in playing the compositions of Swiss drummer Clemens Kuratle, also featuring Elliot Galvin, Chris Guilfoyle and Lukas Traxel. In November last year we recorded our debut album LUMUMBA at Hard Studios, Switzerland. I really enjoyed being part of the whole process of rehearsing, performing & recording this music.

“The discipline of composition and freedom of improvisation steer the music, and the presence or rhythms that crackle with dance-like energy as well as bursts of harmonic turbulence and meditative choruses point to Kuratle‘s embrace of both ‚in‘ and ‚out‘ sounds.” [Album liner notes by Kevin LeGendre.]
