France-via-Brussels duo Nikitch and Kuna Maze, aka Nicolas Morant and Edouard Gilbert, are back with a new album. Building on the signature sounds the duo developed on their first full-length LP, Debuts, – that was praised by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft, and Music Is My Sanctuary – Back and Forth is a deeper and more radically aesthetic approach to its predecessor.
Nikitch and Kuna Maze expand on their soulful and subtle combination of jazz-flavours and the syncopated beats of broken beat and UKG; the album sees the duo working with collaborators for the first time, such as Brazilian singer- songwriter Joao Selva, while also experimenting with their own vocal material.
