Maât from Paris sounds a bit like a French version of Mildlife. Similarly inspired by jazz and cosmic disco, the trio also takes in ambient, balearic and African music on their debut LP Solar Mantra that came out all the way back in January when I had my mind on other things. Growing Bin is a label that is specialised in “cocktails by the pool” or various cross-genre projects based in fusion. Maât’s music fits well into a lounge setting but is also a lot more complex and free-thinking. Like the Matisse-inspired cover, the group have cut out parts of sounds and textures and dropped them to the floor to see the resulting shapes. Admittedly, goes well with a cocktail by the fireside too.
