about

After three albums decrying pollution and deforestation, Pic de Pollution, Ghost Forest and its remixed sequel, ecocitizen group UHT° is back with a monumental mass honoring our blue planet.

Respect for seabeds, oil-slick eco-disasters, wasted water, unclean oceans: a vast spectrum of emotion is expressed in odes by the instruments sobering choruses, free-flying jazz, solo scratching, and evocative thematic bursts. Thrilling crystal- clear flute bubbles with tumultuous rhythm, invigorating sax meets sparkling clarinet, and trombone thrums over glass-shattering bass. UHT° pushes the acoustic envelope twixt poetry and fury, mixing enduring sounds in electro, hip- hop, Drum’n Bass, symphonic, and jazz to serve up this new H2O that’s fresh, fluid, and crystalline.

Gathered round the pillars of producer Dj Click DA and Niño Korta on turntables are Wax Tailor-ite Ludivine Issambourg on flutes, United Fools’ double bassist Thomas Julienne, the free folly of saxophonist Franck Dadure (The Fakir), Daniel Zimmermann of progressive quintet DPZ on tuba and trombone, and, to ensure a traditional touch, Émilie Calmé on the Chinese bamboo xiao.
