Hailing from Bern, Naturetone contributed to the Swiss hip hop scene in the early 1990s as a founding member of ecologist hip hop crew 3TP. After a 15-year studio hiatus, Naturetone returned in 2010 with “Nihon“, an atmospheric instrumental hip hop album which pays tribute to Japan.
Now he’s back again with a new album entitled “Turnings Of The Sun” on the World Around label. The Orient is again a source of inspiration for his abstract sophomore album. He weaves melodies, sounds and beats into an intricate texture that becomes much more than a piece of music; it’s a sonic experience.
Journalist Peter Schong about the album: “Naturetone takes hip hop not just to the next level, but a whole new world. ‘Turnings of the Sun’ is ignoring conventions and instead opting for atmosphere and discovery. (…) It feels like a stroll down an Asian market, burstling with life and activity and tickling the senses with flavors, odours, sounds and colours.”
In affiliation with Naturetone we can give away one CD copy of “Turnings Of The Sun“. This is all you have to do:
