Product Description

Product Description

Slowly Rolling Camera,is the new project that teams up pianist/composer Dave Stapleton,producer Deri Roberts,vocalist/lyricist Dionne Bennett and drummer Elliot Bennett.The result is music that has distinct echoes of the invisible soundtracks of UK progressives Cinematic Orchestra and Portishead.Dipping into a diverse world of trip-hop,jazz and drum and bass rhythms,the record is influenced as much by the Cinematic Orchestra and Portishead as by James Blake and Bonobo,this music is both ethereal and visceral,brimming with real emotion and restless intelligence.Produced by Andy Allan(Portishead,Massive Attack),Slowly Rolling Camera is the self-titled debut album set for release in Feb 2014 on Edition Records.The albums free flowing soul and digital funk shows a boundless approach to arrangement,from the warm,free flowing and texturally rich harmonies of tracks such as Bridge and Rain That Falls to the vibrating rhythms and ambient soundscapes of Protagonist and Rolling Clouds,this is a remarkably produced album full of beauty and emotion.The 4 band members have known each other for over 10 years,playing in various funk and soul bands in the clubs of Cardiff,but it wasn't until 2012 when they converged to form Slowly Rolling Camera.Bringing together 4 unique approaches in writing and production,the results are a highly original and collaborative sound from people that know each other,and know playing together.Expanding to a 7 piece for the live set,this band is a formidable unit.The album launch is set to take place as part of the London Jazz Festival at Pizza Express,Soho.Edition Records was set up in 2008,predominantly as a Jazz label but has expanded to release more electronic,post-rock,and experimental sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Widescreen wonder 5 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD
IF YOU’RE SEARCHING for a pigeonhole in which to drop this eponymous debut release by new UK band Slowly Rolling Camera… well, you may struggle. Because, with a stirringly congruous mix of soul, electronica, trip hop, jazz, rock and soundtrack, Dave Stapleton and his associates have conceived a mesmerising yet cohesive soundscape which almost warrants a genre of its own.

There are obvious comparisons with the music of The Cinematic Orchestra and Portishead – but, somehow, this leaps beyond, into another vista. The core quartet comprises Stapleton himself as composer and keyboardist; vocalist and lyricist Dionne Bennett; Deri Roberts (producer, sound design and electronics); and drummer Elliot Bennett. But, in addition, from Stapleton’s Edition Records label, he employs the considerable skills of some of British jazz’s finest – bassist Jasper Høiby, Mark Lockheart on saxes, guitarist Chris Montague, and Neil Yates on trumpet, as well as synth player Matt Robertson – plus, important to the overall ‘widescreen’ sound, a splendid string octet. And, for the majority of the eleven numbers (with two bonus tracks), it is the commanding and enigmatic presence of Dionne Bennett, with her rich, dusky and soulful vocals, that ignites the project’s incandescent blaze.

The overriding groove of the whole album is one of smouldering intensity, as portrayed by opening track 'Protagonist' which is propelled by the complex drum patterns of Elliot Bennett and coloured with Stapleton’s Zero7-type Fender Rhodes and organ. The unmistakably animated input of guitarist Chris Montague and alto sax player Mark Lockheart add weight to the layered vocals (“you give me the air I want to need to breathe”), all expertly sound-designed by Deri Roberts.

Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if Robert Glasper, Quincy Jones and Teri Lyne Carrington collaborated to write and produce an organic, dramatic chill-out album in Wales? Neither had I, but the answer is right here, and it’s compelling. From the highly regarded Edition Records stable curated by Dave Stapleton, the eponymous debut album from Slowly Rolling Camera presents a cinematic soundtrack to your life in slow motion. I listened to it at home first, and then a few days later whilst driving through England’s Peak District. It was better in the car, especially when the title track emerged majestically as I summited a hill, cruised past a sunken lake, and rode the road around a valley with the setting Cheshire sun.

The album carries itself with an unhurried grace, propelled by lazy grooves in 4, 6, 11 and 5. The lyrical content is banal, so one can’t help thinking that Dionne Bennett’s superb vocals could have shone more brightly given superior text to sing. The instruments on the album sound truly wonderful, especially the piano, double bass, bowed strings and Fender Rhodes – full marks to producer Deri Roberts here. There are examples of superb, dynamic soloing from Chris Montague (guitar), Mark Lockheart (saxes) and Elliot Bennett (drums), but the more poised ensemble moments carry the day: stand-out tracks include Two Roads, Bridge and the album’s coda, Silent Song.

With Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner winning a Grammy, the virtuosic, multi-genre, large-ensemble album format appears to be experiencing a resurgence in 2014. Here’s hoping some well-deserved attention falls to SRC. Slowly Rolling Camera is well worth a listen. And another. And then another.
