Black Jazz Consortium – Look To The Future
Fred Peterkin’s Black Jazz Consortium alias is one he says he uses for making music which resnates exactly how he feels. BJC music is a melting pot of house, tech and jazz making it such a spellbinding project. Look to The Future was a track on his 2007 album RE:Actions of Light released on his Soul People Music label, and in line with all of Fred’s material it’s deeper than the Mariana Trench.
Eerie and extraterrestrial, synths sounding like filtered screeches of a Banshee hovering over earthy low end plodding bass. Peterkin loves a good bongo, and the those played in this track truly bring it to life slamming the other weird elements down with it for dance floor grooving. Ambient pads cruise in underneath a deity like vocal chanting ‘look to the future’. It’s a great amalgamation of jazziness and Michael Mannesque movie soundtrack.
Going by the vocals, Fred must have been feeling a bit philosophical when making this cut. ‘Look to the Future’ is a call to action for the listener to dive into a meditate state. Also Perfect for a low lit dance floor at 5am when the dancers are looking to stay lucid that bit longer.
