Free Download: Cosmic Compositions – Avant Garde Series (Vol​.​1)

New Zealand based collective Cosmic Compositions wants to show the similarities between the Avant-garde/Free Jazz movement of the 50s/60s and the beat movement of this day and age with this first installment of Avant Garde Series. This is an incredible release for everyone who craves for jazz-influenced beats!

Cosmic Compositions: “Both movements attempted to break down, extend and alter the conventions of their original genres -jazz & hip hop- and were never afraid to experiment and improvise to create something that wasn’t accepted commercially at the time.”

This is the first in a series of compilations dedicated to some of the (independent) pioneers of the Avant-garde movement. This edition features the likes of Twit One, @Peace, Iller The Abstract Giraffe, Dutchmassive, Ben Jamin’, Oisima, Ackryte and more, with Pharoah Sanders samples as overall theme. The next compilation will be a dedication to Alice Coltrane.
