The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Mutations EP

(Ad Noiseam; US: 27 Jan 2009; UK: Available as import)

Review [25.Feb.2009]

Hot dog.  Four brand spanking new videos from one of the most exciting electronic jam band hybrids in the world today. Jason “Bong-Ra” Köhnen and his pals are in the process of creating something truly special.  Here’s what I said about their latest EP: “As great as the debut record was, everything about this EP teaser for the upcoming sophomore full-length on Ad Noiseam indicates it will be a superior product. The production is that much more spooky, rich, and atmospheric, and the song structure that much more purposeful and realized. It seems they have struck a perfect symmetry in the studio as a group, feeding off one another and performing cohesively. There is not a wasted moment to be heard. Mutations will slide its greasy fingers up your spine and linger there until you like it.”


The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - “Avian Lungs”


The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - “Shadows”


The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - “Goya (Live in Budapest 2008)”


The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - “The Nothing Changes (Live in Budapest 2008)”


Just for contrast, here’s what Jason Köhnen does when he’s not jamming with the Ensemble…


Bong-Ra - “Jo Bench”
