Mathias Heise Quadrillion - Decadence (LP)
'Decadence' is the sequel to Mathias Heise Quadrillion's debut album 'Sudden Ascent' (2015).
As the title suggests, this album is both an expression of and an exploration of the word “decadence”. And to a certain extent, the album represents decadence itself. A virile and unrestrained cornucopia playing with throbbing beats, harmonies, tones and improvisation. A dynamic plethora of sounds, ideas and wildness, where the objective is beauty, enthusiasm, joie de vivre, bliss, pleasure.
And last, but not least, liberation from the inhibitions of conventions and stereotypes. This urge for complete liberation – and to do exactly whatever they want – has meant that MHQ's music is now dubbed FuRoJazz. FU for future, funk and fusion, RO for rock, and of course, Jazz.
The guys allow themselves plenty of space to experiment, but the band’s unique composition of musical personalities never leaves you in any doubt of the originators.
'Decadence' is produced by acclaimed L.A. producer Erik Zobler, who is known for his longstanding cooperation with George Duke, among many others.
