ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY: Eyesight Project- Los Angeles, CA

Chance meetings and circles of friends in Los Angeles brought musicians from backgrounds as diverse as Mexico, Germany, Trinidad, and Israel together. Eyesight Project has grown into a collective of musicians based around the production duo of Jesse Rogg and Julian Brody, who compose and arrange the tracks in collaboration with Rastafarian MC and vocalist Jah Faith, with help of course of other musicians drawn from the local and international talent pool.

Both Julian and Jesse are rooted in a background of electronic music production; for many years, before moving to Los Angeles, Julian held a residency at Mexico City's premier electronic music venue, Bar Colmillo, showcasing his own projects such as xl-er and Thé Herbal, or the experimental electronic jam collective, Wako Texas, while simultaneously collaborating with current Modus Vivendi labelmates BN Loco on their upcoming release, Echo en Mexico, among many others. Jesse has a strong background in production and engineering with degrees in the latter and years of studio experience. Having worked with Grammy award winning artists and producers, he is also co-founder of Modus Vivendi, the present home of Eyesight Project.

The duo's tastes have shown an inclination towards downtempo and nu-jazz, but not excluding minimal house or electro. They also share a strong appreciation for traditional genres of soul, roots reggae, and dub, which sometimes merges with Julian's proclivity towards the cumbias and boleros of his native Mexico.

The production duo were introduced to Dub Club via co-founder of Modus Vivendi and executive producer of the Eyesight Project Annie Walton-Teter. The Dub Club is held at The Echo, a deep and soulful night run by DJ-Mixer-Producer Tom Chasteen with resident vocals of Jah Faith. The idea of recording Jah Faith within the context of a free-form, sample based project was soon to follow. A meeting of minds, music and ideas ensued, leading to the first studio sessions, recorded at fabled Cherokee Studios in Hollywood, in September of 2004.

The result is Eyesight Project's Sistema Acústico, a four track EP, which has been described as "Future dub from the Modus brand which makes you wanna shake that thang but also is lyrically thought provoking..." (streetforward.com) and as "a lush, laid-back, dub-infused journey through deep bass, easy horns, and echoey, ragga vocals, delivered in a perfect blend of loops and lazy moods" (properlychilled.com).

Eyesight Project are currently both playing live, and recording, mixing and expanding their sense of multicultural aesthetics at their own Sycamore Lab in Hollywood.

Eyesight Project Good For The Ears
I am not a professional music crytic, just a fan of good music. I heard a song from this EP on a movie soundtrack and seeked it out. It is a calm and soothing mixture of reggae vibes, electronic samples and mellow-dees. I would recommend it to anyone interested in eclectic musical arrangements with a chill vibe. I would like to hear more.
