    Electric Monkey Sessions

    First Pressing Of 500 Numbered Copies On Orange Transparent Vinyl


    In 1993 saxophonist Benjamin Herman began experimenting with DJ Graham B at nightclub Soul Kitchen in Amsterdam. The combination of playing live to spinning records was still unusual then. But the results worked and ended up evolving into the eight-piece New Cool Collective. The band is now impossible to think away from the nightclubs and festivals of the Netherlands and beyond.


    The line-up of New Cool Collective is made up of saxophonist Benjamin Herman, drummer Joost Kroon, percussionists Frank van Dok and Jos de Haas, pianist Willem Friede, bassist Leslie Lopez, guitarist Rory Ronde and trumpet-player David Rockefeller.


    New Cool Collective's fifteenth album Electric Monkey Sessions refers to the sound studio in Amsterdam where the recordings were made. A new studio for the band, and a new style of recording, which means a whole new vibe compared to previous albums. New Cool Collective has drawn inspiration from Senegalese Orchestra Baobab, as well as psychedelic cumbia, Cape Town, Italian cinema and many major jazz heroes. Electric Monkey Sessions also features two unique tracks recorded at a beach-side studio in Dakar with local musicians the band met on one of their many international adventures.


    This autumn New Cool Collective are on tour. The eight-piece band is well known for the total commitment with which they convey the energy and emotion of their albums live on stage.

    Iberian Passage


    White Colored Vinyl


    It should come as no surprise that after years of touring with his band Monotonix,
    once hailed by SPIN as the "most exciting live rock band in rock 'n' roll, that Yonatan
    Gat would carry that same intensity in his own act. After five successful years of
    playing 1000 shows spanning 40 countries and 5 continents and releasing three
    records on Drag City with his co-founded band, the New York-by-way-of-Tel-Aviv
    guitarist took some time to himself in Portugal. While there, he set out to create a
    solo album of a different sort of beat.


    Inspired by African ensembles such as Orchestra Baobab, and the early work of
    Brazilian psychedelic experimentalists Os Mutantes - Gat's truly amazing talents
    shine out on Iberian Passage, blending his punk influences with the wild improvisational spirit of Miles Davis and Charles Mingus. Gat produced the album himself;
    joining forces with Portuguese drummer Igor Domingues. The raw and unique nature
    of the recording is augmented by the incredible versatility of the shredded guitar riffs melted between pulsing African-inspired drums. A masterful guitarist, Gat recently
    won Village Voice's Best Guitarist of 2013 with a sound he describes as homeless
    between the Middle East and New York.
