[[]]togethermachine, Mischa Porte – Day Eight (Spotify)

“Diving into the musical structure of the new album, released on Kokosmusic, stands out the work -Day Eight-. The characteristic sound of jazz and improvisation inherent in it can work wonders. Light and soothing composition at the end of the passing day.”

“Поразительный по своей музыкальной структуре альбом, на фоне остальных работ которого ярко выделяется работа -Day Eight-. Характерное джазовое звучание и свойственная ей импровизация творят чудеса. Лёгкая и успокаивающая композиция под конец уходящего дня.”


[]]togethermachine is the studio outfit for drummer Marcel van As (Coparck/Spinvis) making tracks since the 2000's but until now only for his own listening enjoyment in his car. Heavily influenced by David Holmes, DJ Shadow, Beach House, Prince and Miles Davis (a.o) he released his debutalbum ‘[[]]” last november 2020, to critical acclaim Now he releases yet another project,inspired by beats Dutch drummer Mischa Porte posted to the internet during lockdown number 1, exactly one year ago on it’s release. For 70 days Mischa Porte played his lockdown blues away, for everyone to use freely. Marcel clinged on for more than 20 days and posted a track inspired by the beat of the day, everyday at 21:00h sharp. This EP is a selection of those tracks.
