Diggin’ This: Chip Wickham – “Snake Eyes” (Ishmael Ensemble Remix) (Lovemonk Records)
A strut supreme.
“Snake Eyes” by Madrid-via-UK flautist, saxophonist, and jazz multi-talent Chip Wickham gets the remix treatment by Pete Cunningham’s Bristol, UK-based experimental electronic jazz collective Ishmael Ensemble.
Shakers, cymbals, and handclaps float mid-air as an irresistibly funky bassline takes control of the groove, followed by a measured sax, deep piano chords, and energized, breathless flute blasts.
Track of the day.
