Tango og dub i kompetent favntag: missionen lykkes, men resultatet er temmelig glatbarberet
På Sonatas En Dub har guitaristen Asger von Daler danset tæt med soul- og reggaesangeren Emo, og sammen har de skabt en vellydende fusion mellem argentinsk tango og jamaicansk reggae/dub. En lignende mikstur har Gotan Project og Bajo Fondo allerede flirtet lidt med, og de to traditionsrige genrer er - med henholdsvis harmonika og melodika i spidsen – da også begge særdeles egnede til at fremkalde melankoliens forførende melodik. Von Daler og Emos interkulturelle mission er desværre også i al sin vellykkethed en smule kedelig. Man bliver nemlig aldrig rigtig overrasket af fusionens resultat, og produktionerne synes at være lavet efter et rede-med-hårene-princip. Lidt mere af tangoens vildskab og dubbens anarkistiske ekko-æstetik kunne måske have minimeret dette lidt for fløjlsbløde resultat, der ud over Emos fine vokalarbejde også byder på udmærkede gæstemikrofonindslag fra både afdøde Natasja (Let Me Be og Real Love) og Billie Koppel (Prime Crime).

Cd`en 'Sonatas In Dub' er næsten umulig at få ud af cd-afspilleren og af blodet, når den først er der

Umiddelbart kan det måske virke bizart at kombinere argentinsk tango med jamaicansk dub/ reggae musik. Men i hænderne på den danske guitarist Asger Von Daler og producent Low Pressure er kombinationen ovenud vellykket.

Det er filmisk. Det er groovy. Det er langsomt. Og det er sørgmodigt, oplivende, overraskende og forførende på den fede måde.

Der er de slæbende beats og den dybe bas, distinkte akustiske tangoguitarer, stolte violiner, hæse harmonikaer, store rumklangseffekter, ekkoer, lyde af vand, toge og så selvfølgelig vokal arbejdet.

Natasja, der tragisk døde sidste år, medvirker på to numre, førstesinglen 'Real Love' og 'Let me be'. Og begge har i mine ører hitpotentiale på en hvilken som helst radiostation i verden.

Natasja synger i langt højere grad end rapper på disse to numre. Men selvsagt fuldstændigt overbevisende.

Billie Koppel, fra gruppen Catbird, smider nogle uimodståelige troldetoner ind i en duet med den mandlige soulsanger Emo.

Emo, med den følelsefulde og udtryksfulde vokal, står for tre numre. Blandt andet den smukke 'Blue Mountain'.

Cd`en 'Sonatas In Dub' indeholder en ligelig og passende fordeling mellem instrumental og vokal numre, og er næsten umulig at få ud af cd-afspilleren og af blodet når den først er der.

Bio

Von Daler Low Pressure
Sonatas en Dub

Danish musician Asger von Daler was once told a remarkable story in a barbershop in Buenos Aires, a tale of forbidden love across social and racial boundaries and of a dramatic escape from the retribution of the Buenos Aires establishment of the 1920´ies, and a young couple who settled down in Kingston, Jamaica, to open their own milonga-tango bar.

Back in Copenhagen, Asger told the story to friend and fellow musician, Emo. Inspired by the story, the two started writing songs for an album that combined melodic tango instrumentation from Argentina with Jamaica's reggae and dub style: a cooperative effort between two highly skilled musicians with completely different musical backgrounds.

Sonatas En Dub is the result of their combined efforts: an album that takes you to the tango bars of Buenos Aires as well as to the mountains surrounding Kingston, Jamaica, music with a distinct and beautiful sound full of warmth, heart, and authenticity, rounded out by vocals from Emo and various guest vocalists.

Danish singer, producer and multi-talent Emo (aka Low Pressure, aka Emo S) has since his debut on a New York label in 2000, created a stack of uncompromising and ground-breaking releases, including two very well received solo albums. His unique sound, combining reggae, hip hop, dub, soul, electronica and jazz, has drawn attention throughout the world and has led him into collaborations with a number of international artists such as DJ Vadim, Boozoo Bajou, Natasja and Djosos Krost. It has been written about Emo "if his voice doesn't get you, your heart is made of concrete". (Tunes.co.uk)

Tango guitar player, producer and classical arranger Asger von Daler has lived in Latin America for seven years. As co-founder and musical director of the Buenos Aires-based studio, Momix, he has produced music for films, television and theatres all over Latin America. His inspiration starts with the traditional folk genres from the villages of the Chilean Andes mountains and stretches to avantgarde rock, pop, electronic and acoustic music. Asger von Daler has given numerous performances throughout Latin America and is a double Grammy Award-winner in his home country.

Sonatas en Dub is recorded live in studios and produced electronically, partly in Buenos Aires, partly in Copenhagen. One of the contributing musicians is Pablo Gignoli, Bandoneón-player in the Argentine tango orchestra "La Fernandez Fierro". Guest vocalists are Danish singer Billie Koppel and not least the late dancehall queen from Denmark, Natasja, who died tragically in a car accident in Jamaica in 2007. Natasja and Emo had known each other as teenagers and had been friends ever since, participating through the years in each other’s projects. At the time of the making of Sonatas en Dub Natasja approached Emo, eager not only to toast and rap, but also to take on the challenge of singing. The result can be heard on the single 'Real Love' and on the remarkable song called 'Let Me Be'.

‘Real Love’ is being featured in the American TV series success True Blood, Season III, which has approx. 14,5 mill viewers per episode.

Von Daler & Low Pressure is also getting a stamp of approval in the homeland of the tango, as ‘Sonatas en Dub’ will be released fall 2009 in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile on the much respected label Random Records.

Late October Von Daler & Low Pressure was in Athens, Greece to play some gigs as ‘Sonatas en Dub’ got released at Sony Music this summer.

The cover artwork for ‘Sonatas En Dub’ and singles, is hand-painted by the hip and innovative Argentinean artist, Alfredo Genovese.
