TOP 500 REVIEWERon 7 November 2014
Dawn of Midi’s Dysnomia is one of the coolest albums I’ve heard in a long time. I first heard about it when my son pointed it out to me; he’s mostly into electronic music, and this certainly sounds like electro-groove. But it’s actually a jazz trio, and it’s entirely acoustic. The band says that it took two years to record, and when you realize just what they’re doing, you understand why it took so long.

Dawn of Midi is bassist Aakaash Israni, pianist Amino Belyamani and percussionist Qasim Naqvi, and the music they play on this album is surprising. This 46-minute work, divided into nine sections, has the sound of electronic music, the groove of dance music, and the hypnotic rhythms of minimalism. At times, it channels Steve Reich’s phasing music; at other times, it’s got the groove of Daft Punk. It’s got Middle-eastern sounds, danceable rhythms and a groove that you’ll tap your foot to.

If you like minimalism, or electronic music, I think you’ll find this to be the most interesting album you’ve heard in years. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Dawn of Midi.

discovered this while playing "Nik Bartsch Ronin"Video on some social music internet thing i was on.....and saw this listed as a suggestion so gave it a go.....and its a very nice album.......sometimes trying to describe Minimalist to someone new to it can be quite hard to describe......i would describe this for someone who ( like myself ) has an interest to rhythm.....as with these three instruments on this album it is pretty much each instrument playing its own repetitive groove which all overlap which do change overtime,the piano being the leading drive so to speak( probably has technical names for these type of things somewhere...polyrhythms being one for certain )....some parts also go off into what seems like different world music styles while all the time while retaining the whole albums overall feel........it is also something which if i was you to get most pleasure forget the track listing when listening and just listen to it as one piece as it all flows together......one min it'll be funky,then will have some kind of african/indian vibe, then just what it is..........if you like stuff like Music for 18 musicians but done as this kind of minimal funk/world/trance thing and find it hard to classify but also have the patience to listen to it as a 46 min piece( well something around that time) then give it a go.....if you have heard the likes of Nik Bartch then you will know what sort of thing to expect......all in all very pleasurable listening for the brain but will also have you tapping nicely along and shifting with it too .

Hypnotic trance infused acoustic trio from USA. Repeated listenings offer subtleties not apparent on first hearing, especially effective when listening thru headphones.

This is one of the most remarkable albums I have ever heard. The compositions are incredible, minimal and sophisticated. It is like minimal techno with a better organic warm elastic sound. I got this on vinyl straight from the band: it looks as good as it sounds. Highly recommended.
