Nattefrost & Matzumi - From Distant times (FLAC)

Price: €11,90

For many years, the Danish electronic musician Bjørn Jeppesen creates music under the name Nattefrost. His music can be called a mixture between melodically, traditional, EM and icy atmospheric ambient sounds, perfectly fitting the landscapes of the Scandinavian countries. Matzumi is not a Japanese woman but the artist name of the German electronic musician and singer Kathrin Manz. Her concert at the “E-Day Festival” in 2011 made a huge impression. Her music is also “ambient” but with a modern twist. It sounded very interesting when the two announced that they would make an album together.

Atmosphere is an important element on “From Distant Times”. The album is opened in a quite classical in a bombastic way in “First Movement”. Vangelis greets here clearly. “Evolution” opens also in a similar approach.
The main melody in “The Ancient Land” has traces of the music of ambient grandmaster Patrick O’Hearn. Vangelis again comes in mind while listening to “The Portal”. Matzumi sings here without text, bringing the music in the direction of that of Lisa Gerrard who, in her turn, has collaborated with another EM greatness, Klaus Schulze. “Medieval” is again a wonderful track with a link to Vangelis. The choirs sound really excellent here and the melody is euphoric and melancholically. To stay with the founders of EM: ”The New Dawn” is a kind of symphonic variation on the music of Jean Michel Jarre. “Cold Midwinter Nights” closes the album showing the two sides of the duo with an impressive ambient opens and a melodically ending.

It is wonderful to hear how the styles of these two artists perfectly blend on this fine album. Hopefully, they are also going to perform this great music live.
