The saxophonist Lubos Soukup who has been living in Copenhagen for over 10 years now, has founded Machina Mundi with his friends from Rhythmic Music Conservatory. The Canadian double bassist Craig Earle, Swedish drummer Daniel Johansson and keyboardist William Larsson joined Lubos Soukup in order to create a new musical universe. Their eponymous debut album brings a collection of compositions by Lubos Soukup that have been very well received by audiences in concerts mostly in Denmark. Thanks to the rich variety of analogue synthesizers used the music evokes 70s' jazz-rock and draws inspiration from the legendary Weather Report. Based on solid rhythmic grooves, the universe of Machina Mundi features, elegant melodies, exciting solos as well as improvised musical landscapes inviting listeners to experience imaginary film-like sceneries. The present album introduces Lubos Soukup's extraordinary creative talent in a new band set up and sound.
