Worldwide Award winning and MOBO nominated trumpeter, composer, producer and DJ Matthew Halsall presents his new single “Joyful Spirits Of The Universe” – also announcing his new LP “Salute To The Sun” – (forthcoming on his Gondwana Records label). Beautifully charming and heartwarming, the blissful piano early into the track is simply delightful. Its a long a enduring composition which Matthew creates plenty of room for his trumpet and saxophone to create a spellbinding warming atmosphere.
Speaking on his forthcoming album, Matthew says: “I feel ‘Salute to the Sun’ is a positive earthy album. I wanted to create something playful but also quite primitive, earthy and organic that connected to the sounds in nature. I was listening to lush ambient field recordings of tropical environments such as jungles and rainforests and found myself drawn to percussive atmospheric sounds which replicated what I was hearing (bells / shakers / chimes / rain sticks) and I started to experiment with more wooden percussive instruments such as kalimba and marimba.”
