For the 6th installment of our Frission First Premiere’s feature we are proud to give you a first look and listen to the track ‘Flying Dervishes’ from the forthcoming project by the mighty Medline entitled ‘Old Souls Carnival
‘Old Souls Carnival’ is the latest and most accomplished album from Orlando Diaz Corvalan alias Medline.
Each track reveals a facet of Medline’s music, origins, tastes and character. He plays with shamanic and exotic harmonies, hybridized with distorted psych funk sounds, and live instrumentation.
The entire album was composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Medline at his family’s house, in Messac, France during meditative recordings sessions offering a perfect immersion in his mental universe.
‘Flying Dervishes’ is an extraordinary loping psychfuzzwah work out. Medline’s live drumming is perfectly off-kilter as always, a wonky spine through the track that sounds like it was writtenby a 1970’s film composer after a heavy night of taking opiates and listening to the Ultramagnetic Mcs in a Moroccan Bazaar.
Here is (smokin hot off the press) the new video to accompany ‘Dervishes’:
This is the first 12″ released by Medline on his own My Bags label. The album will finally see the light of day this month, sporting a cover featuring the fabulous and mysterious hand made drawings of Stéphane Carricondo. The LP looks just magnificent, the music and artwork in perfect harmony reflecting many years of fruitful collaboration between Stéphane and Medline.
Old Soul’s Carnival is an album for Hip Hop heads wanting something a little more. The French-Chilean producer always works outside of boundaries and styles frames and has delivered an album that sounds at once familiar and alien. It’s part Daptone, part ‘Harder They Come’ Soundtrack, part Salah Ragab and part Pete Rock. Hop over to the My Bags Bandcamp page and pre-order this beautiful thing on vinyl or tape before they run out.
