Si Tew – Quietude

It’s been some time since we’ve received a long player from Si Tew. The word ‘Quietude’ knows no time, though. It conveys a sense of calm or tranquillity in a person or place. So please, keep this in mind when listening to Si Tew’s brand new and eagerly-awaited album on Atjazz Record Company which bears the name ‘Quietude’.

Quietude is a magnificently mindful, far-reaching, and eclectic collection of music. Incidentally, Si Tew is the artist’s real name. The point is that this musician’s genuine nature shines throughout. Straight away, Quietude immerses its listeners, captivating them like the intro to a high-budget movie, with each successive piece of music forming an aural scene. Tracks echo ambient, downbeat, through to deep house, with elements passing knowing winks to influences as far and wide as Bonobo, Lapalux, Fourtet, Floating Points, Ludovico Einaudi, and Max Cooper.
