Caribbean-Belgian composer, producer, and musician Nala Sinephro’s debut release Space 1.8 weaves together future-facing jazz and mellow ambient moods that feel wholly new. Sinephro was only 22 when she recorded Space 1.8, but there isn’t an ounce of naivete within. Each composition carries its own personality, and brings to life a dynamic essence that effortlessly pulls listeners in. The album leans heavily on romantic waves of modular synthesis, but arranges them within organic instrumentation including harp, saxophone, and guitar. Fans of spiritual jazz and legends like Jon Hassel will find a home within this record, which is a perfect companion for deep listening in the colder seasons.
