Press Release
Artifact Records is proud to present the debut EP by the Mystery School Ensemble bringing you the freshest collection of musical influences played by real musicians not DJ operated machines.

"Further" features trumpet, sax, harmonic flute all riding on top of a dense guitar bass and drums rhythm section to shake out the cobwebs and set the scene for the more linear žUnknown RoadsÓ which introduces the trumpet in the lead role framed by a steady background from the rest of the band.

"Nicky's Theme" is the DJ friendly instrumental version - the vocal version to be released soon- with a truly laid back melody worthy of any smokers record collection or after party chillout session, while "At The Gates Of Dawn" wraps up the EP with a floating trip that wraps you up in cotton wool and bubble wrap and posts you to a relaxed and carefree dimension where the sounds of the instruments dissolve into the atmosphere.

How would you descibe it?

...a blend of styles from frenetic jazz fusion to ethereal lounge - something to tickle the sample generation and turn people back on to music in its organic form. These tunes evolve from recording live musicians rather than sampling dead ones.
