After the path-setting METHOD OF DEFIANCE album INAMORATA where he brought together cutting-edge drum&bass producers (Paradox, Enduser, Submerged, Black Sun Empire a.o.) and avantgarde / jazz masters such as John Zorn, Craig Taborn, Herbie Hancock or Toshinori Kondo the visionary, versatile pioneer BILL LASWELL picked out some of his combatants for an audacious follow-up. Young finnish FANU’s syncopated rhythms and sharp breaks prove him the Art Blakey of drum&bass, his feverish beats are an ideal playground for Laswell’s growling, hard-driven yet funky bass attacks. NowJazz trumpet players NILS PETTER MOLVAER and GRAHAM HAYNES accentuate the album’s psychotic heat, while P-funk keyboard wizard BERNIE WORRELL takes care this meeting of musical masters called LOGDE is a solid weapon for the dance floor!
All titles and the ancient alchemist signs of the excellent artwork by John Brown refer to the fraternal organisations of freemasonry and their lodges.

... the atmosphere this time is way more jazzy, you have break-beat and classy fusion but also splinters of the post-Miles Davis era scattered all over the crime scene. Nils Peter Molvaer is a member of the crew as well as Bernie Worrell and Graham Haynes and with sailors like these you can bet the ship is gonna sail thru the warm water of modern black music ... poor Miles, I’m sure he would have loved to be featured among the guests.
This is one of my most influential albums. I took this with me to Amsterdam where I lived a few months in '97. I listened to on repeat, start to finish, day and night; on my way to and from the club; afterwards lying in the grass in Vondelpark in the morning. When I returned to Australia I couldn't listen to it for a long time as it evoked so strongly my memories of the high times I spent in Amsterdam. I'm also proud to still own this release on vinyl. Thanks for the remaster. Tim Tillack
