Simply called GoGo Penguin 'Atomised' from the Blue Note release upcoming in May is now streaming.

Long term fans know their sound and this is completely on message, busy detailed drumming accompanies an obsession with detail in the piano lines minutely easing the momentum along and hugely robust bass underpin it all: it's a winning formula that continues to seem fresh and has an intact genre-less appeal of interest to both electronica and jazz communities.

The most exciting pianist to emerge from the South African scene since Bheki Mseleku? Yes! Pianist and composer Nduduzo Makhathini's Blue Note debut is looking set to be one of the most significant albums of the year when it is released next month. Of the singles so far from Modes of Communication: Letters from the Underworlds all are consistently engrossing and worth your time. Check the McCoy Tyner-esque driving fervour of “Indawu” today. The single pays tribute to the spirits of the Nguni people that live in and underneath water and features Logan Richardson on sax among the personnel and in their rapport recalls Mseleku's understanding with Joe Henderson.
