Cosmic 1970s-type keyboard soundz set up 'Rain Dance/Wisdom.' which is new from trumpeter-composer Emma-Jean Thackray.

Beats kick in to introduce an electronics coated downtempo trumpet presence, the dystopian mood stretching out until the Rhodes-y solo takes over after the brief Thackray solo foray.

This is from a Movementt [Thackray's new label] EP Rain dance, out on 6 March.

A very laidback, loungey DJ styled jazz that suddenly gets a turbo charge and wigs out towards the end with added brass eventually goes into a Theon Cross-type space but not as deep down.

Washes of electronics, and chattering drums flavour the whole mood, the trumpet line hanging in the air. SG
