CD limited to 100 copies.

Titled Fusion Swing, the lengthy album is a record of spiritual ascension, vivid color schemes and dynamic rhythms. Pieced together at various studios across Los Angeles, the new record is a culmination of Elusive’s history in the cross tandem worlds between jazz, hip hop, beats and classical.

Fusion Swing’s rhythmic palette is intertwined with hints of the future and portals to the past. Jazz breaks from the 50s and 60s spiral over syncopated electronic tones with an odyssey of environments in between. The harmonic and melodic scope of Fusion Swing is just as cross pollinated and unique, folding out layer upon layer of organic blends that call to mind the most adventurous electronic artists.

Stretching out his musical base of collaborators, features are added into the matrix of his signature experimental sound. Pushing beyond the hardware and software aspect of this era’s electronic landscape, Fusion Swing glistens with texture, shape and harmony through the addition of saxophone, guitar, upright bass, trumpet, cello and harp. The individuals behind these instruments include Randal Fisher (sax), Emile Poree (guitar), Ardom Beltan (bass), Todd Simon (trumpet), Isaac Takeuchi (cello) and Christian Frederick Thierbach IV (harp). These are all members of the vast community of Los Angeles, embedded deeply within the never ending sense of culture found in the city of angels.

For the visual extension of Fusion Swing’s album cover, Elusive called on surrealist collage artist Mykal Alva. The LA based visionary created a unique series of works that complement the album’s sonic ethos and among those pieces emerged the finalized artwork. Building on the album design Mykal contributed on the last Elusive LP, Headspace, the art is a glowing counterbalance to the worlds of sound Elusive harnesses. On the engineering side, Fusion Swing was mixed and mastered in Los Angeles at the Cosmic Zoo by label owner Daddy Kev.
