What if I told you that the world follows Eternal Laws,
Just like (My) Love,
Would you believe it, blindly? Or would you question it, deeply?
Like you sometimes question the flaws in your soul,
On the Search for a whole another new awakening.
The day you blossom new is the day you will feel free, and Natural,
Unashamed of exposing exploding colors in the face of people reacting “Unajali” (:we love)
For people reflect the light you do project.
Truthfully, blissful the one to fully feel In Bloom
Djeff, Danish neo-group has just released their debut mind-blowing neo-soul album, titled In Bloom, which is an absolute overwhelming masterpiece, a true jam. This is music for Soul awakening.
The band seamlessly blends Hip Hop with Jazz and R&B influences, to give one of the smoothest and uplifting Neo-Soul projects, incorporating also subtle 70’s psychedelic rock influences.
Talking of influences, you can hear the inspirations from the likes of D’Angelo (in the back vocal harmonies and rhythms) and Hiatus Kaiyote in the vocals and the drums tuning.
This debut album is as cinematic as can be, making you dive in a new dimension, along a poetic and philosophic narration.
The album storytelling is all progressive reaching peaks with tracks like Natural, having the potential to be the single of the project, and Symphoty, closing track, and most definitely the masterpiece of the whole album.
Symphoty is not only the closing track for being the last, but it makes you rewind to the first track Set Me Free, with the lyrics “Symphoty set me free”.
Just like twists and turns and all kind of surprising events in a story, the collection tracks surprises with the unexpected interlude Unajali, which means We Love/We Care in Swahili, a real trip that the band invites you to.
This track is the proof that Love, as well as Music, is an universal language,
Introduction to the questioning song What If I Told You (“that the world is language”).
Plus Unajali somehow resonates with the other song titled My Love, the two titled explicitly talking about Love.
Djeff is clearly creating music driven with a vision. The spoken word at the beginning of the opening track, Set Me Free, sets up the message and its direction.
On top of blending the grooviest soulful types of vibes with the smoothest rap, resulting in an outstanding music experience,
Considered the colorful album cover, and its concept, it is obvious that this is music for soul awakening.
